School Reviews

5  
St. Margaret School is an excellent elementary school that has a strong academic program as well as teaches Christian values in a loving atmosphere. Our new principal has put many new things in place. There are many clubs and activities for the students. Music is part of the weekly curriculum and an optional school band is available for those who may be interested in learning an instrument. Sports include baseball, softball, basketball and soccer. The parental involvement in the school is always amazing to me. Parents love this school as much as the students and are always willing to pitch in and help out. The morale and school spirit is almost contagious especially with our principal who is a kind-hearted, loving person with the students' best interests at heart. Most of the teachers have been with the school for many years and are very experienced. Parental concerns are always addressed by the administration and faculty.
