School Reviews

5  
St. Bartholomew School is a great school to paraphrase my youngest son. He loves the school because he gets to learn a lot and have fun, and his teachers always have time to talk to him. I, my sister, my cousin, niece, 3 nephews, and my two sons have or are attending St. Bartholomew. There are families that have over 3 generations of St. Bartholomew graduates. The reason why is simple St. Bartholomew School, Parish, and surrounding community is dedicated to uplifting the children through education and faith. They truly teach and encourage the development of the mind, body and soul. If you are looking for a school where teachers have time to dedicate to your child St. Bartholomew is the place.
