The Presentation School

At Presentation, we believe that every child has gifts and talents to be discovered, nurtured and treasured. Our success in helping young people learn and grow is rooted in our commitment to small class sizes, engaging and caring teachers, and our community's belief that all children should be appropriately challenged; academically, socially, and spiritually. As an independent K-8 school, rotted in the Catholic tradition, our community welcome and celebrates families from that all faith backgrounds. We invite you to experience the difference of a Presentation School education for your own children. -Scott Parker.

School Reviews

We love The Presentation School! All three of our children have had the benefit of a Presentation School. Our eldest, now in high school, was VERY prepared for the rigor of her high school choice. The middle school develops presentation and leadership skills in their students with a strong community outreach message. The lower school is inclusive, nurturing, and their small class sizes really allow for individualized instruction. This is an academic prep school, but balanced with an emphasis in the performing and visual arts. Our Kindergartener came home talking about Van Gogh and his painting style! Their annual spring musical is not your standard school play, and their monthly school showcases develop presentation skills and build community. This is a great school!
