My kids have been attending St. Bernadette for the past 10 years. We love the school because it`s like a family, very warm and welcoming. The kids have fun learning in a very nurturing environment. The teachers and staff are amazing. I feel very safe and happy sending my kids here.

The quality of education at St. Bernadette has helped my kids to become intelligent, caring, and self-driven individuals. As parents, we try to instill these positive character traits at home and hope it carries through when they are at school. St. Bernadette encourages that and more. The educators, faculty, and staff work closely with each child to help them succeed, open their creative minds, and strengthen their bodies and souls. Having limited class sizes allows them to accomplish this. The close-knit culture keeps everyone in check and no one feels left behind. Thank you for (over) preparing them for high school and beyond. I'm proud to be a St. Bernadette parent!

We are so fortunate to have found a great welcoming school for our child. Having our child return to school during these unpredictable times was a tough decision to make. We discovered that SBCS offered a part-time VPK program. We decided that a part-time transition would be best for our child so we enrolled for the 2021-2022 school year. Our child has learned so much, has made many friends, and enjoys going to school every day. Our child`s teachers are very sweet and challenge our little ones to be the very best. I also volunteer at the school and everyone from the beginning was very receiving and helpful.

St. Bernadette is a great school with a family environment where the school and parents work together for your child to excel. The children feel included and it's a smaller school where the teachers and administration know you and your child . There are many sports and activities for the children to be involved with thought the year. It's amazing to be able to be a part of a school where your catholic values are not only taught but practiced throughout the school year as you can not only see but feel the kindness the children have towards each other.

We have been at this school for about 3 years now and our kids love it! We moved from California to Florida and I was so nervous about where I was going to send my kids. As soon as we met with Mrs. Wagner and saw the small school atmosphere, the happy kids, and how nice the kids, staff, and faculty were I felt like we needed to try this school out. Now that we have spent some time here I am happy to report that sending my kids to St. B was one of the best decisions I have made. In fact, St. Bernadette is not only my kid's school, but it has become a part of our family. It is the type of school where I can call the office and be asked how I am doing and what's new. It is the type of place where when I ask my daughter who she played with at school she says that everyone in her class is friends and everyone plays together. There are so many great things about this school and it is hard to explain all of them through a review. However, to summarize I love this school because all the kids at St. Bernadette are loved by all the staff, faculty, and volunteers here. The kids can feel it too! It is a GREAT Catholic school education, it has a small school and family atmosphere and despite the challenges of COVID my kids are having fun with school activities as well as excelling in their academics, understanding of the Catholic faith, and growing in their love for God.

We love that St. Bernadette Catholic School is a small school community! The teachers and staff know all of the students' names and there is so much attention to detail. Our son is getting a great Catholic education and learning to be a kind and loving person, all while having plenty of opportunities to still be a kid! My son looks forward to lunch outside on the deck, recess in the big field every day, and the specials classes--there is always at least one every day of the week. Something exciting is always going on and the principal, Mrs. Wagner, and teachers are ready to celebrate the students' accomplishments, big and small. The large property that the school sits on provides an added layer of safety.
