Words cannot express the appreciation I have for my son's experience at The St.Anthony School. My son started attending the school when he was in the 4th grade after going to a public school from the 1st through the 3rd grades. He was bullied by a peer during these grades which prompted us to start looking at other schools. The staff at St. Anthony's taught him to find his voice and to stand up and express himself. They teach the students to have respect for everyone. He has continued to thrive at this school so much that we are now mainstreaming into a public high school. He's taken advantage of all the exceptional extracurricular activities that the school offers, including basketball and band. The confidence that the school has instilled in him has encouraged him to challenge himself and become more independent. His family and I are forever grateful.

I have nothing but accolades when it comes to St. Anthony's. We came to St. Anthony's five years ago. Our daughter was initially accepted into another Learning Differences private school but they discovered that her behavior was too much for them to handle. We came for a tour and felt so welcome and that we found a home for our daughter. It was a little rough at first with the transition but by the middle of the school, year-everything was running smoothly. The teachers know your child so well and are completely transparent with their strengths and opportunities. They have a great balance with work and fun. My daughter has been able to experience so many fun things after working so hard during the week. Our daughter has grown leaps and bounds, she is ready for a new chapter in her life--so sadly we will be leaving St. Anthony's to pursue a bigger school with more social opportunities with other girls. We will be forever grateful to St. Anthony's!!

We are very pleased with our experience at The St. Anthony School. They provide an environment that focuses on every aspect of the individual student. We have appreciated the small setting. It allows teachers to truly know your child. If there are areas of concern that need extra attention, they are able to address it quickly. All of the staff and administration work together to communicate how best to help your child become successful and give the whole family a level of support you will not find elsewhere. Our child has flourished and we have seen an enormous amount of growth and confidence during our time here.

The St. Anthony School has been outstanding in every way. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this school. We had been struggling with my son since he was 3. We were kicked out of multiple preschools and his Kindergarten year in ISD did not go well. We had an advocate suggest the St. Anthony School and it has been the perfect fit for our son. When we met with them we knew they understand exactly what we were going through. My son was always getting into trouble at school. He was an outcast, had no friends and it eventually led to very low self-esteem and depression. It was heart-breaking to see him like this at such a young age. From the 1st day he started at the St. Anthony School we knew it was the perfect fit. He was happy again. He enjoyed school and was making friends. He is now on his 4th year at the school and we have seen a worlds of difference in him. They have built strong characteristics in him such as integrity and respect. They provided the perfect learning environment and know and understand his needs. He has learned self-control and is able to verbalize his feelings and keep emotions and hands in check. The staff and administrators have been outstanding in every way. If you have a child that is struggling, I would highly recommend the St. Anthony School. They truly care and your child has a place where they fit in. They have a place to succeed in school and build skills for life. It has changed our son's life and ours too.

We cannot say enough good things about St Anthony. Our daughter was getting into a lot of trouble at her ISD school. It started in Kindergarten with detentions for her behavior. We tried everything and nothing was working to change her behavior. We started looking at the schools for Learning Differences but they said she was getting into too much trouble to come to their schools. One of the counselors suggested St Anthony. We called, set up a day for our daughter to visit and we fell in love. The teachers and administrators are so helpful. Our daughter learned how to control her actions so that she blends in with the group. Even when she acted out in class I felt it was handled in the most productive way possible. It is very easy to get in touch with the teachers and administrators. She was there for 3rd and 4th grade and then we had to move out of the city. We were all crying on the last day of school. It has been two years since we were there and all of her lessons are still with her. St Anthony made a huge difference. Call them if you are having behavioral issues with your precious child. St Anthony will remind you of why you became a parent and make you feel successful again. Not all children are the same. And it is a wonderful school that sees the special-ness in your child when everyone else steps away from them. St Anthony took us by the hand and helped us move forward.
