Since enrolling our children into this school, we have always been helped from day one. We were always greeted at drop-off and carline. The staff is very communicative when it comes to our children's academics and their health, and safety. The parish is always a big help too when it came down to our children's school tuition. Without their grant, it would have cost us more. I am glad this school is always there for us and for other families as well.
