School Reviews

I attended St Benedict from grades 1-3 in the early 70s. Sister Dorothy Yancy was my first teacher and many of the values and habits I hold today came from her. I Learned to excel academically and to love the Lord simultaneously through the close-knit family that was our school. Our teachers encouraged us to achieve excellence. I am glad I had my start at St. Benedict the Moor.
