Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a parent
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 parent
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 parent
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 parent
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.



- a parent
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.

Horrible academics. Staff is rude and snooty- look elsewhere! Glad we found a wonderful school in Louisville, CO. Worth the 30 min commute.




- a parent
We've had our children there for 7 years and the first 5 were excellent. However, the school now has a new principle who for the last 2 years has brought the school down academically and has created a culture of fear among the faculty and children. Several teachers have left and will not be replaced leaving fewer teachers to cover an already strained curriculum.



- a parent
We have been at SVDP for 2 years and are very much impressed with the school, teachers, and principal. This school challenges the children and I know my son will be well prepared for high school because of the curriculum and pursuit of excellence by all involved in the decision making of the school.
