I have had my daughter in this school for 4 years now and couldn't picture sending her anywhere else. The school offers great financial aid assistance and has an amazing staff. The teachers are great at working the Catholic faith into the curriculum in a way that every student understands. The community in the school is also great! The staff knows every student by name and parents always look out for each other and the children.

All the staff members are very helpful and kind. They go above and beyond for all the kids. They know each child by name and everyone looks out for the safety and wellbeing of the children. The teachers are truly amazing!I am very happy with the school; we have been at this school for the last 11 years. One of my children needed speech therapy and they tap into the resources to be able to provide it almost immediately
