From prekindergarten to eighth grade, you will find some of the most inspiring and caring teachers and staff. The love that is poured into each child is not something you will likely find in a overcrowded public school. The energy and education each teacher provides are priceless. The family bond you will develope with other families is absolutely amazing. There is no other school for my little ones except here.

We wanted a school in a nice area with good teachers. After much searching, we found St. David School. The school is in a safe area and the staff ensures that your children's safety is there number one priority. The school has a good sports program, wonderful music teacher, excellent academics and a nice sports field across the street from the school. This school will not disappoint!
