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.
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.
this is the best school in the world. we learn about our faith and have great sports teams. we also hav very energetic and fun teachers and we learn alot. the elemantary school is kept separate from the middle school so that they can have different learning environments and priveleges so as they progress in throught the years at st.vincent they have something to look forward to as they get into the older grades. in second grade the students make their first communion and reconciliation. the principal is a great leader and gives the students any privelges but has many strict rules about these priveleges. over-all this school is very good and is a great place for children to learn as well as hav fun while they are doing it.
Under the guidance of the Dominican Sisters of Nashville and a superb caring, dedicated staff, SVDP is by far one of the finest schools in the Denver area. Having had a past student currently in a private HS and a present student, I can attest to the fact that the students are treated fairly and respectfully, receive compentent academic training to excell, supported to respect self and others, respected for their individuality, value and moral driven teaching and are disciplined with love. Self esteem and developement of the 'total' person is the goal. A real value for your time and money.
