I love, SBS. The teachers are wonderful and Fr. Ed is very involved. Curriculum is great and parents invest time in the school as well. Some teachers have been there forever which is a testament to the school. I looked around at many Catholic schools and this was the one that impressed me the most when taking tours. Case in point, I have other Catholic schools closer to me, but I drive farther to take my daughter to St. Bonaventure. Highly recommend.
My daughter has been at this school for 9 years and we love it. The teachers and staff are dedicated, caring, friendly and strive to maximize the potential of each child. The school teaches not only academics, but also christian values and morals. The children are taught the basics of physical education, reading, writing, math, science and history, but also learn spanish, art, music, and computer science. This is at All grade levels pre-k3 to 8th. There are sport teams, choirs, scouts, dance, and other extracurricular activities for the children to be involved in. Parent involvement is encouraged not discouraged. It is truly a family environment. Father Ed is at the school to greet the parents and children every morning, as are the principal and/or the assistant principal.
Very loving environment, no 'teaching to test' at this school! Everyone counts, parents are involved. Father Ed is involved and cares a great deal. Every morning, I take my son to school and have a sense of peace. When I pick him up he is happy and can't wait to come back. This school is a true Blessing!
