The St. Bernadette School Community has been a blessing to our entire family. My children are thriving academically while being challenged and held accountable. Every teacher in the school is there because they want to be there. It is incredible how everyone continues to go above and beyond offering after school clubs and activities. When you walk into the school you feel welcome and appreciated.

The teachers are very dedicated, and the St. Bernadette community is very welcoming. We appreciate the focus on spiritual growth and academic excellence; we know our children are receiving the best possible education in a very accepting and loving environment.
