We are 1st time parents at Saint Sebastian and we are extremely impressed and happy to be part of such a dedicated school. My daughter is in TK, and is part of the dual language immersion program. I have seen such an improvement in my child's ability to speak Spanish, as English is her 1st language. The faculty is exceptional and very involved. Aside from the language and learning foundation they are providing my daughter with, they are also instilling catholic education and values in her, which is extremely important in our family.
Sra. Harty is incredibly personable, and knows every child by name, I have never encountered a principal as involved as she is.
There's supervised after-school care until 6pm (even on minimum days) which is a great service for working parents.
I highly recommend Saint Sebastian. If you want your child to enjoy going to school, have involved parents and Community, along with a safe environment, Saint Sebastian is the school you want your child to attend.
We have been proudly sending our children to wonderful St. Sebastian School since 2009. We have 3 children at the school who have dedicated, fantastic, and caring teachers. Our children are doing well at school and are surrounded by a committed, welcoming staff. They are involved in so many activities including sports, philanthropy, academic decathlon, and knitting. The community of parents, relatives, and volunteers is very committed to the school and this trickles down to each and every student. The administration is excellent...we are comfortable speaking to her about any topic. We are very grateful for this school.
We love St Sebastian School! It has both a Preschool, and K-8 classes, which worked perfectly for our family. All teachers and students know each other. School implements a strict anti-bullying policy. Last but not least, it has dual language program.
Our family chose St. Sebastian school for the combination of the Spanish language instruction, religious component, and comfortable atmosphere. My son started kindergarten in fall of 2016, and now near the 100th day of school we are happy to report we are all thrilled with St. Sebastian. My son is speaking and writing in Spanish, and learning about many cultures from not only Latin America but around the world. The homework load is manageable, and he is doing well on standardized testing. The children's mass on Friday is a wonderful experience, and he is already learning kindness through simple community service projects. The class sizes are small, the community is warm and welcoming, and campus is safe and comfortable. The campus has a nice playground too. My son enjoys going to school, and really loves his teachers.
We are proud to be a part of the St Sebastian School community. This is a small school with so much to offer. Our principal, Teresa McDugald, is an amazing leader who is committed to the success of our school. I have nothing but praise for her, the teachers and the staff at St Sebastian School. If you are looking for a safe. loving, supportive environment for your child along with a high quality education, then I would highly recommend you take a moment to visit St. Sebastian School.
Excellent academic curriculum and small tight knit community. This school has been through the worst storm (as Father Herman puts it) but because of the love and dedication of each staff members and the family behind it, it managed to get itself out of the storm and is now thriving once again.
