This is a great school for parents looking for a no frills, solid education. The principal runs the school with a genuine heart for the kids and their education. The teaching staff is great and there's a definite sense of community at this school. As the other reviewer said, there are no fancy facilities, but our child has learned so much in the last year and now halfway through this school year. The class sizes average around 25 with two classes for each grade. The school also offers many extra curricular activities; sports, arts, music. Great school. Great community! Can't rave about it enough!

This school nurtures a feeling of community among parents. Thus far, I have found the education solid and advanced, as most private schools offer. Classroom sizes are small with approx. 2 classes per grade. The principal is approachable and the teachers are wonderful! My child has been at this school for two years now and is advanced among general peers his age from other schools, which I accredit to the teaching. It's a small community school. No fancy facilities, but the community of people are wonderful and the teachers care about their kids. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a catholic education.

This school has great teachers and great community of families. The transitional kindergarten teacher is exceptional! And has set the pace for the academic rigor for our child. I look forward to seeing my child grow and learn and our friendships develop in this school.
