I have nothing but positive things to say of St. Agnes and their staff. I have 1 daughter who graduated 2 years ago and 2 daughters who currently attend here. Our girls love it and are excited to be in school everyday!It`s such joy to hear our girls talk about the wonderful things that they`re learning as well as how much they enjoy the enrichment programs that St. Agnes has to offer. Teachers and staff are wonderful, especially at making sure that students achieve milestones academically and socially. Thank You St. Agnes!!!

I love St. Agnes. My daughter has been there since 1st grade and she is now in 4th. She has learned a lot and the teachers challenge the students to do their best. I feel great knowing that she is in a safe environment and getting a quality education.
