St. Patrick's is a great place for children to learn. The faculty and staff are always there for the children. Many activities and learning opportunities are available for the children and families. Parent involvement is high and welcomed. Safety is a priority for the children as well as learning. My daughter loves her school and teachers. This is her 3rd year at St. Patrick's.
This is an excellent school! My children LOVE school and it is obvious that the teachers really care about the students. I appreciate how St. Patrick's educates the whole child. Academics are definitely a strength, but I also am grateful that they focus on teaching them how to be good people. Service projects focus on the local community, as well the global activities occurring in our world today. They also require students to take music, Spanish, and PE and offer after school sports through their CYO program. I was really grateful to have one child in their preschool to make the transition to kindergarten so easy, I just wish their infant care center was open when my children were babies and we would have started here even earlier!
I was very unhappy with the public school system around the Hercules area (and in general), so I looked into private schools. My kids are currently attending St. Patrick Elementary School is Rodeo, CA. This will be our third year with the school. We are EXTREMELY happy with the staff and curriculum. I like how the school gets students from each grade get together in groups (faith families) and participate in monthly activities. Everyone know each other. The schools also incorporates the use of laptops in the classrooms, especially in the middle school, which prepares them for the future. Just wish my kids started there sooner!
