We love St Lucy's and would not consider any other school. I have two children that started in kindergarten and are now in second grade and middle school. The academic standards are high and everyone from the principal to the teachers to the parents are all dedicated to working together to make the school the best it can be. I can go on about why it's a great school, but I think the most important reason why we would recommend this school is that -- above all else -- our children are happy at this school.

My children have loved and thrived at St. Lucy's. We transferred in and felt welcomed from the moment we set foot in the door. We feel as though the administration has done a great job in managing the school effectively, bringing in solid faculty members when the need has arisen, sets priorities appropriately, continually asks for parent feedback (e.g. on-line surveys and Principal's Coffees) and is getting better and better about communicating with parents. There have been bumps in the road, but the administration has been quick to learn and improve. We have really enjoyed the "extras" and innovative things St. Lucy's is doing: Junior High electives, integration of technology, Family Groups, live "Walk Through" histories. We feel confident in the faculty--the teachers are engaging, always positive and are very responsive. The community is a lot of fun (FunFest is the best school/parish festival we have attended). Parents are giving of their time and the parent groups are well run. We have never regretted our difficult choice to move.

My 2 kids have been attending St Lucy's for the past 4 years and we've been very happy here. As I've heard many times before, it truly takes a village when raising kids and that is what it feels like here. Because it is a small school, you really get to know a lot of kids and parents in different grades. The school sets up "Family Groups" which consists of one kid from each grade in a group, and this allows kids to get to know and learn from older kids as well. The ongoing school events, class trips, and Mom's Nights Out really helps create a community where we want to help each other and be involved. The ongoing message to the students of lending a helping hand, being a friend, never bullying, etc has really helped raise great kids across all the classes. It's a community I love being a part of which I didn't see in the local public schools.

We looked at several schools--charter and private--before choosing St. Lucys for our kids. Positive recommendations from other teachers were a big factor. Yes, the new administration had unusual internal issues to deal with in years 2012 and 2013. However, recent new hires and changes in programs have been very impressive. Personally speaking, our kids are flourishing and, as parents, we love the community. We highly recommend St. Lucy's!

We have been at St. Lucy School for years, and I wouldn t enroll my kids anyplace else. The teachers are warm and nurturing, the community is strong, and the leadership is experienced and forward thinking. This year is off to a great start. The principal added a new elective program in Jr. High, improved the Jr. high class schedule so the kids move more, added school-wide community service days, and moved to a new hot lunch option that is organic and healthy! New teachers in 3rd, 5th, and science seem to be great additions. Our kids are also excited about having iPads and laptops in the classrooms. We love SLS for our family.

St. Lucy has had it's ups and downs over the decade we have been there. Unfortunately, the new administration is inexperienced and struggling to keep the school heading in a good direction. It is sad to see. Several wonderful families have left the school because of this. The classes for older kids are particularly troublesome. St. Lucy has stopped letting the kids change classes and that makes for long, boring days in junior high. The community is strong, but only having one class per grade is tough on the older kids.

I have been a parent at this school for over 4 years now and a parish member for a lot longer. The reason we chose this school was because of all the positive feedback we heard. So far our experience has been great. There have been changes in administration during our time at the school but overall the transition has been smooth. The community at this school is amazing and the academics are excellent. No place is perfect but this school gets our top rating.

The school has changed with new administration and the Jr. High. is very poor. Science in particular is very weak, although the facility is nice. We have found teaching in the lower grades to be quite good.

Being a parent of two St. Lucy students for the past six years with another child starting Pre-K next year, we couldn't be happier with the overall education our children are receiving along with the community we have joined there. With the addition of the Pre-K and full-day Kindergarten beginning in 2014, it just cements our decision to continue and thrive at St. Lucy. We feel our children are receiving a proper Catholic and academic education as well as being surrounded by unlimited social activities including clubs, choir, sports, family nights out and our annual Fun Fest carnival. The families have been so welcoming and we've truly found a tremendous sense of community that extends from the school to the church. The Pastors are very involved and are focused on growing the Catholic faith within our children and seeing them grow as students as well as good citizens. We are extremely satisfied with our decision to join this wonderful school.

Having almost completed St Lucy's with my oldest child and having two more coming through, I can say I have seen many changes happen over the years. These changes have greatly improved our school, the one thing that has remained constant has been the strong level of community that it has to offer. Families are there to help where they can and the teachers are in turn there for their students and their families in so many ways. St Lucy's goes beyond being just a school, it is a community of families who do their best to get on together, and are connected by a common tread - their children and their children's future. After eight years there I would make the same choice again. Academically, it is of par with any of the Catholic schools in the area, however, the level of parental involvement, commitment and warmth far exceeds all of the others.

Amazing school.... We tried a different Campbell school before transferring to St. Lucy and WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! Our three children attend St. Lucy. They love their school and so do we. Its a warm and welcoming community environment. The parent participation is through the roof. If I could, I would give the parents extra stars. The staff and teachers are caring and dedicated to the children. Students get a well rounded education: academics, arts (music, choir, drawing), technology, field trips, P.E, foreign language, community outreach, religious faith. Like all things, not everything is perfect. Spanish classes don't formally start until 6th grade. A bit late in my opinion. Despite this point, St. Lucy has many great attributes that outweigh any shortcomings. The principal, parents and staff are always looking to continuous improve the school and offerings.

I could never dream of a better school to send my 3 kids to. The environment here is a community of non-threatning, caring, educated people that put the children first. The faculty seems to put in numerous hours into making the education of the students top notch and the environment nurturing. This school is like a family as the staff knows each of the students personally and treats them with respect. They are always striving to be the best teachers and admin. around constantly educating and bettering their teaching techniques to keep up to date with technology. I feel very lucky to have found this school.

This is our third year at St. Lucy School (2 children enrolled) and we couldn't be happier. High academic and conduct standards, talented and welcoming teachers and administration with an eye to continuous improvement, friendly and supportive parent community, new after-care facility, all wrapped up in a environment that instills a joy and love of learning in the children. My kids look forward to going to school each day (and we look forward to the school events to spend time with the parents, teachers, and administration!) We are delighted with our decision to choose St. Lucy School.

We have 2 children at St. Lucy's and couldn't be prouder to have our kids get a great education, learn about our faith, while also exposing them to an array of extracurricular activities. The community at school and in the parish is very strong and active. The admin/staff continue to change their curriculum in order to keep up with the fast pace technology that we are surrounded by.

We have three children in this school and we love it. The teachers are amazing and instill a love of learning in the children. We visited many schools and found St Lucy's to be the obvious choice. The school curriculum is excellent and the community is very welcoming. We highly recommend attending the open house and/or taking a private tour.

This is literally the worst school you could ever imagine. From cranky 2nd grade teachers to rude junior high teachers. If i could, I wouldn't even give it one star. The athletic and education program is a joke, you will NOT be prepared for high school. The teachers do nothing to help your education. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS, OR EVEN YOUR WORST ENEMIES TO THIS SCHOOL.

This is my 3rd year as a parent at this school and every year it just keeps getting better! This is a wonderful Catholic school that is very well rounded. Strong academics, a great array of extra curricular activities, an involved and caring parent community, great school leadership all wrapped up in a nice Christian environment. Our school is actually full of families who have come here based on word of mouth from other proud and happy St. Lucy families who love this place!

This is a great school to have a child go to.. The Music teacher is out of this world.. The art that come from the art teacher is on the same page too. Sports is high on the list too.. If you want a all around school that care for the children I would say this is the school for you!
