School Reviews

5  
I thoroughly enjoyed this school. The teachers called every week as per my request to let me know how my 12 year old was doing. We loved the camaraderie and Christian/Catholic background of everything there. No complaints other than I shouldn't have sent my child back to public school. This school was worth it's weight in funds!!!
