St. Louis is a great school. My daughter loves everything about the school. It is a tight community where everybody knows everybody. The class size is small provides a lot of individual attention. The staff is very caring and helpful.
St. Louis Catholic School has been a wonderful part of our lives. The staff is professional and caring. The small class size allows them to work with each individual. My child has learned how to work hard, finish assignments and be caring of others. St. Louis is successful in their attempt to develope the whole person, academically and spiritually. There is also opportunity for much family involvement. It is a fabulous partnership in preparing our children for their futures. We are very happy here.
One of our best decisions has been choosing St Louis Catholic school in Englewood, CO for our son. He started at St. Louis in kindergarten, and is now in 2nd grade. He is thriving in all areas- spritually, academically, and emotionally. He loves to learn, feels safe, and is creating some great friendships. St. Louis has a "family-feel" atmosphere, and the families really support eachother! St. Louis is a true blessing.
Their hearts are in the right place. Very traditional catholic education--quality, quality, quality! The Pastor Fr. Reycraft is awesome and devoted--he does wonders for the school and parish--you will see him on the school grounds every day!. If you're OK with just a tad bit of politics on the school side (principal/administration) then you'll be OK here. It's a small close group of families--everyone knows what everyone's doing; and a bit over protective; but that's OK nowadays. Many of the families are a very supportive group. Teachers are top flight all the way. This school has its quirks--but don't they all. In the end, your kids will flourish here and get WAY more than what the government schools can provide.
I have had several children attend Saint Louis and they have all flourished. Class size is small, attention is individual, and the teachers are top notch. The experience has been well worth the tuition and the commute!
My daughter has attended St. Louis since Kindergarten and is currently in 7th grade. Based on Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, she is academically 3 to 4 grade levels above her class standing in the top 90-98%. I am exceptionally pleased with the education she has received and equally pleased with the sense of community responsibility and awareness of her need to help others that the school has engendered. There is a sense of family to the school, lots of extracurricular activities to challenge her and the opportunity to be a vital part of sports teams.
