St. Eugene Cathedral School5

I have a third and fifth grader that have both attended since pre-school. This is an outstanding and exceptional school that promotes the well being of children, a high quality balanced education that engatges students at all levels, as well as fosers a strong catholic faith. As for the education, they are ahead in terms of implementing the Common Core standards, and the 21st Century Learning Skills. The academics are rigorous and parents are expected to be involved at school and active participants in their childrens' education. Children are challenged academically, there is differentiation and support for all children not matter their learning style and level. The entire staff is professional and welcoming. If you are looking for a tight knit school community you will find this at St. Eugene's. The education is well worth the money! My kids love this school!
All three of my children attended St. Eugene from k through 8. Yes, the class sizes were large but in terms of the overall quality of the education each received, it was outstanding. The one criticism I have has nothing to do with the faculty but rather with the "new" Bishop and crew.
We were very disappointed in the St. Eugene's experience. The teachers in the preschool are not long term employees, only one has has been there for a number of years, the others are all new. The total class size is too big for the space they have available. Children get lost here and the education is not worth the cost. In addition because of the new bishop, Vasa, the religious teachings are much more consertative and do not reflect the Catholic religion I was raised in. We will not attend Kindergarten in the fall. The school has much work to do to create an environment where children are challenged aca demically and supported in their growth to be the best they can be.
My son has been here since pre-school. The teachers are all very experienced , long term employees, the education is top-notch, and the community is very supportive. There is a lot of opportunity for involvement. The administration is very supportive of parents and there is a lot of personal attention given to each student. Kids thrive here!
This is a wonderful school! St. Eugene's exceeded our expectations in every way. Wonderful administration, caring and qualified teachers who get the children excited to learn. There are many opportunities for parental involvement as well. Wonderful community, we are very pleased with this school.
