St. Madeleine Catholic School is not an affluent school. Nonetheless, they are exceptional in surpassing education standards with sparse resources. Teachers and faculty are fully dedicated and are personally invested in each student. There is a heavy emphasis on a complete education, and workload may seem heavy. Also, the school expects parents to be thoroughly involved in the education process, but the results are remarkable. Student excel beyond the expectations of the public school system and the strict curriculum appears to better prepare them for competitive education in the future. I am deeply impressed with the quality education quality at St. Madeleines and the various ways the teachers go beyond the norm to inspire the students (especially with their investment in arts education).

I am so excited that my child is at St. Madeleine's. WOW! What an improvement with her grades from the previous school that she went to. The curriculum is rigorous but gets results with most students, including my daughter, reading at the 95th percentile through STAR testing! WOW! And you can see the difference between essay writing, grammar, math, and all other subjects. I am so impressed. But what really has me excited is her religious training. ST. MADELEINE'S CATHOLIC SCHOOL is exactly what my son has needed for his foundational years! I am convinced that this foundation will support him for the rest of his life. Lots of parents have complained because there is too much homework. I don't understand, don't they want their children to have MORE?
