We have been at SVDP K-8: Strong academics. Teachers are supportive, yet appropriately demanding. Unique programs: Jr Great Books program - students read 24+ classics over the course of 4 years and discuss in book club format with a handful of other schools. SVDP Serves program places huge emphasis on charity and giving back.. Solid athletics starting in 3rd grade: Cross Country, Basketball, Volleyball, Futsal, Baseball. Parent community is fun and inclusive.

Teachers and staff have been wonderful. Children are provided a challenging and disciplined curriculum in a Catholic faith based environment. Also, has a very involved community of parents, who care about their children's academics and overall outcome in life.

I love St. Vincents. I have kids from preschool to 7th grade there. Each teacher is so loving and smart and dedicated to the total needs of my kids. The activities from basketball to plays are great for the students and the community. The administration is so knowledgeable, attentive, and understanding of what the school needs. And, we love all of the community - parents and kids.

We have been so impressed with St. Vincent de Paul. Our kids are challenged in a fun and creative manner in an incredibly kind and supportive community. We are always surprised by how much they have learned and how much they enjoy school. The administration and teachers are challenging yet warm and supportive as they prepare our kids academically, developmentally and socially. Our kids actually look forward to the many public speaking opportunities and presenting their projects to their peers.

SVdP is a fantastic community and the quality of academics is extremely strong. It's obvious that parents who send their kids here are truly interested in having their kids get the best character education possible.

We are exceptionally proud to be parents at SVdP. Our oldest son is thriving at the school and we will most certainly be sending our other two daughters there when they come of age. I think one of the best things about the school is the incredible sense of community, which is strongly supported by an emphasis on communications and engagement, and from an education standpoint we feel like our children are in exceedingly good hands. There is an constant foundation of partnership with us as parents, not just with education, but with faith, but also in that spirit of building community together. Also, there is a drive for improvement there that we like to see as well whether it`s with facilities or policies, etc., most of which are very contemporary and with new technology, but some that need to change and while that can mean changes for us as parents sometimes, we like that those changes come with intention and purpose. Our experiences have been extremely positive from beginning to end.

Love SVdP. The new principal is awesome, the school community is so supportive, academics are rigorous and there are plenty of sports for the kids to participate in. Small feel, fun activities for the parents to participate in and the most polite well mannered kids around.

The Department of Homeland Security recently announced that it would enforce a 2017 policy of requiring visa applicants to list their social media handles. More about this and how it impacts international students wishing to attend American K-12 private schools.
We parents are responsible for expanding our children's horizons. We are responsible for showing and explaining things, concepts, and places they have never thought of. This article contains my roadmap for enriching your child's education.
