I have never worked in a more positive environment with such a supportive administration. The families we serve are collaborative in such a refreshing way.

My son has attended Saint Patrick's for 9 years. It has been pretty wonderful. I have a very spirited and sometimes challenging child. The school has supported him, fostered his interests, and worked closely with me to assist in helping him become the best person he can be. He has been happy at the school. No environment is perfect; we have had our challenges. This school is not for everyone. That being said, the faculty has definitely approached the "whole child formation approach" with gusto. I am confident he will be well prepared for high school, college, and being a contributing citizen of the world.
