I am so beyond happy with this school. Our entire marriage we knew where we wanted our kiddos to go. Unfortunately, Visitation (our first choice due to family history) is now shutting down so we had to look into a new place that we would want to send our kids to. Our oldest started last year in pre-k and we couldn`t be happier with the education and the teachers. St. Charles feels like a family. Everyone is so kind and they have great values. Not to mention they have cutting-edge technology which gives the kiddos such a great advantage.

Our family has attended SCB for the past 10 years. The community and education it has provided our children are top-notch. The teachers encourage each student daily to be the best they can be and see each student as an individual allowing them to grow exponentially. We are truly grateful for the amazing education and school.
