Our family has had an exceptional experience at St. Anselm School. Our children have learned a lot, developed into good, compassionate people and feel happy and safe at St. Anselm's. We feel very fortunate to have found this challenging, yet warm, faith-based community for our children.
The majority of the instruction is accomplished during the time in classroom while homework is utilized for longer term projects, reinforcement of classroom learned knowledge or ongoing reading programs.
The utilization of school families, allowing the interaction of students at each grade level reinforces compassion and caring. Philanthropy and community outreach to places like Bello Gardens and others also develops compassion and empathy.
St Anselm provided a nurturing, positive community for my children that kept them grounded and challenged during the 9 years they were there. The utilization of school families allowed the middle school students to interact with the younger students and took the pressure off of growing up to fast while the elementary age students benefited from these amazing role models. St Anselm's focus on academic excellence is apparent in the culture and prepared them to excel in honors courses at Marin Catholic.
St Anselm has also established an amazing community around the parish and school with lifelong friendships created through school involvement, coaching, parent activities and numerous outlets for volunteering.
We have been very happy with our son's education so far at St. Anselm School. We truly see a difference in his knowledge base and his reading has skyrocketed. He loves his friends, his teachers, and he comes home happy at the end of the day. We are looking forward to the upcoming school year.
My husband and I have been thrilled with our choice to send our children to St. Anselm. We love the great sense of community and the fantastic education our children have received. There is such a great balance of religion, education, traditions, and fun. This year, we have also seen transitions in the administration, and I think it has all happened so smoothly. While we were sad to see the old principal leave we are very happy with her replacement. I think she will continue to do great things for the school!
The secret of St. Anselm's success is simple - genuine focus on the things that matter in life - Followers of Christ, Academically Prepared Individuals, Intellectually Engaged, Technologically Responsible, Humanitarian Citizens. St. Anselm delivers on all fronts. The teachers and administration are intellectually engaged, caring and true team players. The children are happy, age appropriate and genuinely care about each other and the world around them. What more can you ask for in life?
