We love this school - it has been great for our boys! Academically, the school is fantastic. What really sets St Patrick's apart is its culture. The teachers and parents care, the student body is diverse and the children are building character, not just knowledge. If you want to get your children a great start in life, this is your school.

Our son can be shy in unfamiliar situations. Since he has begun attending St Patrick he has truly blossomed. The buddy system is a wonderful tool the school uses to match the youngest and oldest students together for weekly mass and other special events throughout the school year. Teachers make themselves available to students and parents before and after school and the principal knows each of the parents by name. St Patrick has small class sizes and is a very close knit school. The academic and religious experience was just what we were looking for.
