St. Cecilia Elementary School5

I love this school so much. Everything that I learned while attending Saint Cecilia has benefited me. While going to SC, I did not know how much they were teaching me in comparison to other grammar schools. I am in high school now and see how much more advanced SC was over so many of the other schools. I was more than prepared for high school.
I attended this school and received a fine education, which allowed be to attend a top high school and continue my studies at UC Berkeley. I am now a parent at the school and the standard for excellence both in academics and personal accountability has not changed. The school has a fabulous academic program and also an (optional) integrated music program in piano, violin, guitar, and other instruments. As part of the in-class curriculum there is a music program for all the students as well. The school has a terrific after school sports program as well, in which a large part of the school participates. There are many clubs and extracurricular activities including drama and student government. Two areas in which the school doesn't excel are: foreign language - none are offered and computer studies. There are computers, but it is not a focus nor fully integrated with the curriculum.
