I highly recommend St. Louis Catholic School. We just finished our 14th year at St. Louis. We were fortunate to have all three of our daughters attend k-8th grade. The experience has been fantastic. We have enjoyed the community. Our kids have been well-prepared for high school and beyond. More importantly we have well-rounded kids with the strong values and faith-based foundation they couldn't have received elsewhere.

Our daughter started at St. Louise in Grade 8. Our daughter felt very welcomed by all the students and all of her teachers. The principal and the administration of the school as well as the teachers are all outstanding. My wife and I both feel very blessed that our daughter was able to attend St. Louise school and we only wish that she would have been able to start at St. Louise in kindergarten instead of Grade 8. St. Louise school in Bellevue has the best school community that you can ever hope to find for your child. If you are looking for a kind, loving and caring school community for your child there is no better school than St. Louise. The principal of the school is the finest example of a practicing Catholic that I have ever had the pleasure to know in my entire life. I can't recommend St. Louise school enough to anyone that is looking for a school that will provide an environment for your child to become that best person that they can be.

We moved to Bellevue when our children were entering 5th, 3rd and 1st grade. We enrolled them at St. Louise Parish school and found it to be an awesome place for our family! Our children were quickly welcomed by other students and we found the staff to be excellent. Our kids loved the CYO sports programs where they could play on teams (cross country, soccer, basketball, etc.) with their classmates and we loved that sportsmanship was emphasized. All of our children's teachers were caring, engaging, and interested in seeing their students succeed both academically and socially. While we knew the curriculum was engaging and appropriately challenging, when our oldest hit high school we quickly realized the excellent preparation he received at St. Louise. He was placed in advanced classes and excelled academically among his high school peers. As parents we have found the school community to be amazing! We continue to maintain active friendships with many of the parents, and we are so thankful to St. Louise for making our family's transition to Bellevue so easy. Choosing St Louise Parish School was one of the best parenting decisions.

We have been very happy with St. Louise. Looking at what our daughter learned in kindergarten is incredible. The great staff, curriculum and other students have created a dramatic change in her academics. And she loves school. She loves to see her teachers at Mass or to run into them at community events. We recommend St. Louise at every opportunity.

We are very thankful for our family's first year experience at St. Louise School. The kindergarten teachers and support staff are top notch. Our child's class was a total of 15 children with a teacher and an instructional assistant. I saw my child and the other children in the class grow so much educationally, socially, and emotionally as the year progressed. I am so thankful that my child's first year of full day elementary school was such a positive experience that fostered a love of learning and school for him. His teacher is incredible at making each child feel cared for and supported while also providing a high expectations learning environment. In addition to a high quality education, the school is made up of a warm community of families that welcome newcomers. I highly recommend the school.
