I support this school 100%! I have 2 children in this school for 8 years now. The teachers are amazing. They really get to know the kids both personally and academically. They truly go the extra mile for these kids and always have their best interest at heart. The classes are small making it easy for teachers to give the kids the attention they deserve. The only thing I would like to see improve is parent involvement. There are a lot of fun activities planned but little volunteer help.

This school is average. I thought I was going to get a better education for my kids but they just not doing it . Next year I am looking for a public school in New haven -Worthington. This school is to expensive and they ask for too much donations. Parent of two students.

My two children are currently enrolled on there third year. What a mistake! Next year St. Mary's for sure...this school is lacking in many different areas, to much to list. There is no leadership in this school period, they love to pass the buck.

As a parent of 2 former students the school is over priced and severly lacking in math and english skills; kids will struggle at college-prep schools. Safe & cozy environment does not make up subpar academics.

My son is on his 4th year in St. Vincent's and I am extremely pleased with the academic and personal growth he is achieving! The teachers are dedicated, intelligent and take the time to assist every student on an 'as needed' basis. I think the tuition is reasonable when comparing to other private schools in the county. I will keep my child here until he completes 8th grade! The parents are committed as well. It is a very close knit, trustworthy school community and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting their child to have excellent educational and spiritual growth!

I am a parent of a graduate and a current student. I strongly stand by this school. When my son graduated, he attend a private Catholic high school and was completely parpared in every area. As a freshman he started off in level 2 classes but, was so parpared he should have been in honors classes. He then advanced to honors classes. As a junior they were learing material that he already learned in 8th grade at St. Vincents. The teachers at St. Vincent's are so dedicated to the students and their teaching skills are superior. If your child is having and type of difficulty, the parent is informed immediately. The tuition is reasonable and I would pay any amount before I send my children to the East Haven public schools.

My daughter has attended this school for 8 years and she loves it. She has one of the largest classes in the school, but is never over looked or deprived of attention. The children are kind, respectful, and polite. They all get along well. The teachers she has had are wonderful, caring,educators. They are dedicated to the school and our children. She is being well prepared for highschool, learning to take notes, study, and overall responsibility for her own work. I feel the tuition is comparable to other catholic schools in the areas and well worth it, compared the lacking public schools in East Haven. The school families are friendly and generous in their time and efforts to keep the school thriving. This school would not be what it is without its wonderful staff and parents. I would recommend this school to every I know.

Excellent school! Excellent preparation for High School. This school teaches excellent study skills and makes the transition to high school a breeze. Excellent teachers-excellent curriculum. This school if far superior than East Haven public schools. The parents that enroll their children in this school play an active part in their child's education. The school is worth the tuition paid to attend this quality school.

To expensive, poor leardership at the top including the Pastor and Principal. I am a parent of a current student and a past graduate. Where is he spirtuality ? The educational quality is simply not as high with that of my oldest child. I am counting the days until Graduation and just hope my child is properly prepared for High School both Spirtually and Intellectually.

I think St. Vincent de Paul is an excellent school. It has just been reaccredited and has a strong commitment to the community. The teachers are excellent and prepared my oldest daughter who is now attending a top rated high school and is doing very well.

the new principal is lacking to say the least. the teachers are no better then the lacking education, and the price you pay is rediculous for what the school has to offer the children as they prepare for higher education. steer clear!

Expensive, with a far less superior education and curriculum then should be expected. Cute, friendly, family, small community feel, but education is far too important for those to be the best qualities. Doesnt adequately prep the children for entry into high school.

My son's went to this school and when they entered high school they had trouble keeping up with everybody else.The curriculum needs to be set the same standard as other schools , so they won't fall behind.The teachers seem to be lagging behind as well.

St. Vincent de Paul School provides a high quality education for an affordable tuition. The teachers are high caliber and administration is caring and responsive. If you are moving to the greater New Haven area, please consider St. Vincent's. I believe my children receive the same attention and small class size that higher priced private schools offer. It is a Catholic school, but non-Catholic students receive the same superior education, and learning Religion from a Theology / culture perspective is a benefit, since many study Theology or religious culture at the college level without considering themselves particularly religious. I would highly recommend St. Vincent's to anyone considering a new school or changing schools.
