I couldn't be more happy with the change in school for my kids, They were at St Gregory for 2 years and I honestly couldn't believe everything my kids missed out of in those 2 years. I am totally HAPPY with the faculty, school security and especially academics. If you are interested in having your children in a Catholic School. ST AGNES is the best.

As an alumna I can proudly say that St. Agnes instills integrity, determination, and the fervor to succeed. With inspiring and accredited teachers who constantly seek ways to teach their young pupils, St. Agnes has the ability to produce some of the brightest minds. In addition, Mr. Dempsey, the principal of St. Agnes, is one of the finest head of schools. He always seeks ways to better the learning environment and provides vast opportunities for the students. I am currently a graduate of Marymount High School and will be attending one of the ivy leagues, Cornell University. There I will a premed student majoring in neurobiology and behavior and minoring in literature in order to become a neurosurgeon. I would highly recommend St. Agnes because it provides the proper tools and attention for one's child to succeed.

As a former student to st. Agnes I must say that the education was great until mr. Chappelle left as well as ms. Karla. After them the schools spine collapsed! Now for years they have tried to become a better school but I have yet to see this happen... good luck st. Agnes!

Honestly, this school gave me an incredible foundation on education, integrity, and professionalism. My professional success is a direct correlation to the hardwork of every teacher at St. Agnes. As a graduate, I'm confident that every student at St. Agnes will have the neccessary tools to succeed in this every changing world.

I am an eighth grader at St.Agnes School and I have to say that I have learned a lot at St.Agnes. The teachers really care about their students. I personally feel that I can talk to my teachers baout anything. I would recomend this school to whoever wants a bright future, but also wants school to be fun.

My child attended St. Agnes School until she reached the second grade, and we loved it. Ms. Anita Brown is phenomenal, Ms. Benitez is very structured, and Ms. Rice was exceptional. I highly recommend Kindergarted with Ms. Anita Brown.

I am an 8th grader at St.Agnes and I'd like to say that the school isn't the best. But the teachers they have there have a very good relationship with the students. Most of them are there late after school if you're there late and doing your homework and need help, you just need to ask. Yes, I do agree that some of the teachers don't pay much attention to the students and I've gotten away with things in the passed. But the education I got was ok. But the teachers I've had helped with alot. Especially Mrs.Hamilton R.I.P the whole parish misses her alot. =]

As a former student, I must credit St. Agnes and its teachers for the quality of education it provided me. However, once Mr. Galen Chappelle and Sister Karla left this parish the educational level has dimished. The current principle does not at all meet or excel the standards that once principle Sister Karla instilled.

As a former student of St. Agnes school i have to say its not a great school. The teachers hardly payed attention to the students and the principal wasn't any better.

Posted November 9, 2006

This is a great school. I am a former student of St.Agnes. I was here since K-6. I am proud to say that St.Agnes has very good teachers who do their best in teaching your children.

I really enjoy having my children attend St. Agnes. I see the difference in public school children and catholic school children. Mr. Dempsey is a great principal!
