I have been going to St Jerome since pre-k 4 and it is a very good school I will be graduating very soon. It definitely is a great school. The teachers are very nice and teach very well. I definitely recommend St Jerome.

My daughter went here for pre-K4 and we had the best possible experience. Our experience was so good that we are working it out in our budget for her to continue here for Kindergarten. The staff is warm and friendly. Sending my daughter to Ms. Sophie's class was like sending her to be with family. It is a small school, so your child will be known by more than just their own teacher. The principal remembers the parents. My daughter excelled in her class and it was always a happy and positive environment. Yay for Catholic school!
