St. Matthew school has been a blessing in our lives as well as our children's. It has offered a spiritual and education foundation that has exceeded our expectations. Our child, now in high school continues to excel academically, enrolled in honors courses, and has become a morally strong young person, while being able to successfully transition into the rigorous academic environment of a Catholic high school. Our other child continues to excel at St. Matthew School also receiving honor roll every marking period and excelling along with all classmates in state testing due to the caring and dedicated teachers! St. Matthew School is the best kept secret of the Diocese! We couldn't be happier with our school choice!!!

ST Matthew's is a wonderful school. My daughter went there up until this past October. She was there a total of 8 wonderful years from pre- k to 5th. Along the way we met many new people and outstanding teachers. The front office staff is top notch and is always there to help no matter what. We moved out of the area and it broke our hearts to pull her out of her second home . If you are ever thinking of sending your child there you are making the right choice !!

Saint Matthew School is a nurturing environment where students are encouraged and challenged to learn on a daily basis. The teachers care greatly for the students. The personalized class and teaching styles of the teachers help each and every student, regardless of their level. The family atmosphere is second to none. We are beyond happy with the education our 3rd grader gets!

We have been part of St Matthew community since 2003. Placing our children in St. Matthew School was the best decision we made. It is here that they have not only received a top notch education, but have also learned what it means to give back to their community, be accepting of others and to be nurtured in a faith filled environment. The connection the children have with their teachers and the administration is what every parent would hope for. It is a very special place!

Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
