School Reviews

We love St. Matthew School, the teachers, the staff, the principal. . I can't imagine sending our children anywhere else. Their learning isn't limited to science, math, reading, etc. They are learning about Jesus and learning how important and wonderful it is to serve and love others. It is our daughter's final year at St. Matt's. It's bittersweet to know that she'll be leaving the safety and comfort of a place that all three of our kids love so much but knowing that she's prepared to enter high school equipped with the tools to make good choices and share with others what's she has learned at St. Matthew.
