St. Kieran is a wonderful school for both academics and character development. The small class sizes make it easier for the kids to get the help they need from their teacher and the teachers are all very dedicated to their students'' success. I have three kids at the school right now and all of their teachers are receptive to their individual needs and check in with me regularly. The principal knows all of the students very well and is very good at working with the students and parents on any concerns they have. The tuition is very reasonable, especially considering the one-on-one attention your kids get. You can tell that the teachers and staff really love their kids and the school community!

My daughter has been there since pre-school. To clarify, St. Kieran is K-8 , not k-9. My daughter is completing her 8th grade year. I have watched her grow into an awesome young lady. The education she has received, academically, socially and spiritually has been priceless.
