This school has been a blessing for our family! The teachers and principal have made my child's school experience so positive and wonderful that I am so looking forward to my other child attending in the Fall. Besides the academics being terrific there are also many family oriented activities that this school puts on to promote fellowship! I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a loving, nurturing and academically strong place to put your child!
From a parent who has been here for 7 years
i love hearing daily from my son what his teachers are teaching him and what he has learned. His middle school teachers are fabulous and his writing has improved, his geography is much better than mine. All of the teachers here at Saint Euphrasia find so many different ways to reach the children and for that I am thankful!
I have been a parent at this school for several years as we have had two children graduate from St. Euphrasia. We are incredibly happy to be a part of the St. Euphrasia School community and are beyond happy with our experience at the school. The teachers and staff are amazing, as is the Principal. I have seen Mrs. Blair under fire by many parents at one time and she has always, always maintained her calm. Her priority is always the education and safety of the children - which as a parent i truly appreciate. St. Euphrasia School is truly a gem and i have recommended this school to many of my friends and family.
This school has been a wonderful home for my children. The staff and teachers are very professional and welcoming. My children have thrived at this school and have tested above-average each year. They will be well-prepared for high school. Also, it is nice that the values we teach at home are instilled in our children every day.
Curriculum is not challenging enough. This school does not put enough emphasis on science, social studies, and or math. Which are important subjects when your kids go to high school.
Principal takes on too many tasks, resulting the school lack of organization and discipline. Kids are not taught about consequences when they misbehave, don't follow rules and when they mistreat other classmates. As a parent who thought highly of this school, I'm disappointed!
This school is the little jewel of the valley! The children are like family to each other. Every effort is made to keep them safe, give them a well balanced academic program, offer extra curricular activities, provide community service opportunities, and teach them positive values. Students grow spiritually and academically stronger each year. I have been blessed to have my children attend this school. Obviously each person has their own right fit and not everyone may chose this school but keep in mind that some of the negative comments here were probably written by disgruntled parents and do not reflect the general consensus of the parent population. No one school can be perfect 24 hrs a day but St Euphrasia has been the best thing to happen in the academic life of my children. The best decision ever made was sending my children to this school. I know the education, community spirit, and religious teachings they get here will be with them for a life time. Tour the school and see for yourself!
This school is well rounded, nurturing the students to be independent and academic learners in a secure environment, offering challenging courses which prepare them for the future, be it in leadership roles or with solid work ethics and spiritual growth that will carry them successfully through high school and beyond. Spanish is taught in middle school, and there is a computer lab for all ages. All the faculty are highly skilled, professional and well credentialed, with most holding several degrees. Beyond academic life, there is a strong social atmosphere among the school and parish families which is supported by both the principal and pastor with family fun events throughout the year that strengthen friendships and community spirit. How many schools can boast that their pastor dresses up as the Phantom of the Opera at Trunk or Treat, does singalongs with the children on his guitar, and blades with the principal and students at Skateland? The only misgiving we have had is not having attended it sooner coming from another local private school. In any case, we were warmly welcomed and are proud to be part of this school and parish. There is more goodness here than any negativity.
