St Vincent has been a great school for my kids. We love the community and the way the principal and staff are preparing them for their future.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The teachers show a caring and loving nature about them and are truly interested in the whole child.

We are exceptionally proud to be parents at SVdP. Our oldest son is thriving at the school and we will most certainly be sending our other two daughters there when they come of age. I think one of the best things about the school is the incredible sense of community, which is strongly supported by an emphasis on communications and engagement, and from an education standpoint we feel like our children are in exceedingly good hands. There is an constant foundation of partnership with us as parents, not just with education, but with faith, but also in that spirit of building community together. Also, there is a drive for improvement there that we like to see as well – whether it’s with facilities or policies, etc., most of which are very contemporary and with new technology, but some that need to change and while that can mean changes for us as parents sometimes, we like that those changes come with intention and purpose. Our experiences have been extremely positive from beginning to end.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Good teachers from pre school trough 8th grade with one or two exceptions. I do feel they are being stifled by current administration. Several of the best teachers have been fired recently.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Overall homework assignments are reasonable for grade level until 6th and seventh grade. Over the past three years homework escalated to 3-4 hours a night in 6th grade .....too much!


Develops character: Disagree


- a
Bullies are given more credit and positive attention than kind, hard working students. We have known many nice families that have left the school because of bullying. The administration does not address their issues.

We have been at SVDP for almost eleven years with our three children and have been very active in the parish during that time. It is suffering under The poor leadership of Sr Maria Ivana who has been in position going on five years. Reactive parents seem to guide her decision making. There have been many knee jerk reactions responses to hot headed parents that do not represent the schools best interest. It has become a very me centered community which has lost its service base. The principal avoids dealing with big issue and is overfocused on controlling petty things. Academically, the math program is very average and Spanish is a waste of time. My 8th grader left knowing the same amount of the Spanish language he learned in kindergarten.

St. Vincent's provides its students with a strong academic foundation, while embedding faith formation with fun community building activities. I have the opportunity to work in several independent schools and catholic schools on a daily basis and I feel confident my 3 children are in a great learning environment.




- a
Great community, outstanding fundraisers, nice kids and familys. We've been completely please thus far. Huge difference from our old school and our 2nd is starting soon.

Love St Vincent's!!! Been there 7 years with my 2 kids. Great academics, dedicated teachers, competitive sports (starting in the 3rd grade), and an amazing parent community.
