My 4th grader Julio has been at St. Ignatius since he was in Pre K. Our bright and creative boy has found a great place to develop his talents and grow as a kind, caring person. He tests up to 6th grade math and 7th grade reading. He loves his teachers, CYO sports, the music program, and the service projects that involve the students in helping the community. With the Jesuit focus on challenging academics and social justice, he is growing up to learn how to develop his gifts and use them to make the world a better place.

St. Ignatius is a great school. It has rigorous academics, great community service projects that each class is involved in, excellent teachers who teach kindness, compassion and inclusion as well as academics and a commitment to the environment that is important to me as well. I love the family atmosphere as well. I am very happy with the school and highly recommend it.

Very happy with our experience at St. Ignatius from 1st grade through 8th. High quality teachers including reading, music and PE. Families are very engaged and supportive. School encourages involvement with the community.

Being an alumni of St. Ignatius, I know of the bond between teacher to student is greater than that of a public school. I was very fortunate in attending this school, the academics and sports they provide through the school set me up for success through my high school career. I love this school and still am an active part of the community even 10 years later.

This school has a very high academic standard. The staff is wise and kind and that is what you need when dealing middle school students. I did not want to send my daughter to a wild and crazy public middle school. As a former public school teacher I have seen what can happen. This school is small and no student gets lost or ignored.
