We are glad we chose to enroll our son in Saint Bernadatte. Our son truly enjoys attending class and thrives in the welcoming and supportive community at the school.

Our son is easily influenced by peers and is very sensitive. We were worried about him entering kindergarten. Our worries were needless. The school is so nurturing, the classroom is a loving, supportive, warm and caring space. His kindergarten teacher Mrs. O'Connell is absolutely amazing in every respect. He was worried about his first day at kindergarten, like most kids. But was bouncing up and down with excitement after his first day.We started during the 2020 school year so in person class attendance was unlike anything that the administration or teachers could have ever planned for, professionally, personally, or fiscally. The Principle has done a phenomenal job threading the needle enforcing maximum safety practices and avoiding a revolt. It has been amazing to observe the wonderful job that he and the teachers have done to maintain a safe environment.Just as importantly, I love that the school really nurtures an environment of community and teaches the importance of serving the poor.

This school may not be the most rich school in the county but it has taught me a lot about who I am.
