I attended school here for 7th and 8th grade. It is some of my fondest memories. The education was great, Sister Jonice was a great teacher and principal. I believe the years were 69, 70 and 71. My class mates were all very nice people and I am so happy my parents sent me to this school. 5 star rating for sure

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
This article aims to show you where to look for information about school reopening protocols, school reopening communications, schools that have closed, and schools with COVID-19 cases, among other COVID-19 related issues.
