School Reviews

I had my 2 children attend Saint Matthew. Both teachers were incredibly caring and went out of their way to make my kids feel welcomed. They were incredibly responsive to emails or texts. Pictures and a listing of the day's events were sent home daily. The class sizes are typically smaller, which allows more time for individualized learning.
