As a parent of a former SHS student, we couldn't have been happier with the education our child received during their 9 years. We loved the rigor of the academics coupled with the moral and religious education that allowed our child to thrive. The teachers were committed to their students' learning and used positivity to promote accomplishments and personal best. Our child is a person who is strong, caring, empathetic, interested in learning and has a strong moral fiber. We heartily endorse Saint Hilary School to any families we meet.

Our two girls have absolutely thrived in the supportive environment that Saint Hilary has provided. They can't wait to go to school. They're testing two grade levels above where they should be and love learning. They are creating an environment that is fostering kind caring strong smart & empathetic children & we couldn't be happier.

I love the attention given and the environment provided to my son at St. Hilary School. He regularly interacts with people of good moral character and learns much more of value than the basic curriculum. My son is becoming a responsible person of integrity. And he is developing a thirst for knowledge and a desire to maximize his abilities, which makes learning and growing that much easier. I look forward to some great years for him at St. Hilary.
