St. Benilde School provides the type of nurturing, loving family environment I want for my children. I have a child who is gifted and a child on the other end of the spectrum, and both receive the loving care they need to grow in faith, hope, and love. I highly recommend this school!

My son is 4 years old and participated in the PreK-2 program as well as the PreK-3 program. We''ve been thouroughly impressed by the loving, caring environment that is present at St. Benilde. We have truly felt like part of a family there and plan for our son and any future children to go to St. Benilde through the 7th grade. The teachers treat the kids as they would their own. --Nicole Harris Spiller
