School Reviews

My son, who graduated from Saint Bonaventure School ("SBS") in June, was at SBS from kindergarten through 8th grade. No regrets; in fact, I have nothing but praise for the school. As you would expect from a Catholic school, he received an excellent, faith-based education that no doubt in my mind prepared him well for the rigors of high school and the challenges that come with the teenage years. He is attending Servite High School, which has a demanding curriculum, and he is thriving. The discipline instilled in him at SBS is serving him well in high school. Besides the academics, SBS provides a great platform for children to grow in an environment that is friendly, safe and supportive. He developed many strong friendships with his classmates at SBS, many of which I believe will endure. The kids there were great kids; I never once felt any hesitation in allowing him to visit and hangout with any of his classmates They were certainly positive influences. The SBS community of teachers, staff, parents and students was truly something special to be part of; in many ways; it felt like being part of an extended family. The members of this community are always there when you need them. I would encourage any parent thinking of sending their child to SBS to send them.
