Our family loves St. Matthew School. We have found it to be a friendly, welcoming community where every child is important, valued and cared for. The teachers and staff are a living example of faith, respect and kindness. There is a strong commitment to the academic success of each child while still making it a fun-filled environment for learning and community building.
