My daughter applied for several public high schools and was not accepted in the first round. After seeing what was left we deceided to check out St. Agnes. My wife and I were very impressed with the school as well as the student to teacher ratio. We met with Assistant Principal Mrs. Nicoletti and Principal Sr. Joan. Both were very pleasent to deal with. The school was also very clean. You could eat off the floors. It reminded me of what a Catholic school was when I went to St Leo's in the 80"s. I am looking forward to the next four years of my daughters life at St Agnes and watching her grow into a young woman.

The education I received from St. Agnes played a major role in my success as an adult in the business world, as well as my interpersonal relationships. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to ensure that their daughter becomes a well rounded, educated and spiritial person that will acheive whatever goal is aimed for.
