St Patrick School Reviews
1.St. Patrick's is in our opinion; the best educational facility around. 2.Our daughter's have emotional and mentally grown significantly in the small amount of time they have attended.
3.We love the “family,” atmosphere. The children have a real sense of belonging.
4. The small class size allows the children the time and attention they need to be successful.
5.We can see the benefits of the integrated learning environment offered by such programs as “PEPI”
6. We think the service projects the children participate in are wonderful. In this “self-focused world,” we sometimes live in; our children are being taught the value of helping others.
7.We like the reinforcement of Catholic/Christian values which are being taught. I can not think of a better way to start the day than with a prayer. We love that our girls are able to pray at school.
8.They are also able to celebrate Christmas and Easter at school and are taught the significance of each.
9.The teachers that we have had the pleasure of interacting with thus far in our girl's educational journey, have been extraordinary. They have expressed a genuine passion for the mental and emotional growth of our girls. They are a blessing to the students, parents, and to each other.
10.We also like that as parents we are offered a support group.
St. Pat's is a great school with caring teachers and a new princiapal that is fantastic. Both my children attend this school as well as myself many years ago. My yongest has "energy" issues and finds it hard to concentrate. His teacher developed a rewards program just for him and it is working better than I ever imagined. It's the knowledge and love that all staff give that makes this a 5 star school in my book. There is even a grant called the STO grant that allowed me to afford this fantastic school.
St. Patrick's school is the best in town. St. Pat's emphasizes academic success, value-centered principles, self-discipline and moral training, in a caring, Christian environment.
