This is our second year at St. Al's, and we are extremely pleased with the school. Our kids are challenged academically and thriving socially. The school staff is amazing; they care so much about the "whole student," and appreciate each child's unique gifts and abilities. LOVE the single-gender middle school. Great concept!
