Great school. They use common core curriculum and keep religion separate from other subjects. I was concerned there would be an over influence of faith, but the teachers are all lay-persons and school is welcoming to all faiths. Exclusive use of iPads, no paper or pencils, including at the kindergarten level - children are well prepared for the future of technology.

Both of my daughters went to St. Jeanne`s and received and excellent intellectual, moral and integral education. They have maintained their friends and teacher contacts throughout their college years and I am so gratified that they were able to attend this school. My recommendation could not be higher.

Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac School offers a nurturing environment for its students. The small class sizes and appropriate use of technology enable teachers to truly individualize learning. As a Catholic school, values and character are as much a part of the curriculum as academics, and students are encouraged to be well rounded through participation in extra curriculars like sports and drama. Saint Jeanne's graduates are young men and women of character and achievement.
