Nativity school has been not just an amazing school but also a community for our family. Our kids are well rounded caring children learning catholic values who will be well prepared for high school and beyond. The teachers are outstanding as well as the principle. She genuinely cares for the school, families and children and it shows.

Ms. Bruni has been an amazing addition to the school's math and science program. Math and Science are now my child's favorite subjects because of her.

Teacher effectiveness: Effective

We've had some good teachers and some great teachers but the school has always been open if there have ever been any issues. Not every kid is going to like every teacher. This is a good learning lesson of life and when they get to high school and get a job. They might not always like their boss but they will need to work through it. i think it's more about the kid and how they work through it if they are not crazy about their teacher.

Right now we have been given a bit too much homework which I think the teachers are still trying to figure out since it's the start of the year.

So many of these kids pursue their dream high school and colleges. I have met many of the older children that are now out of college who have become tenacious, successful adults in their communities

The children learn on a daily basis how to treat each other kindly and how to be honest. Whether in church, the classroom, or playground they are taught in a positive way.
