My child spent the majority of his early education @ St. Ann's. No complaints about their Early Learning Center but the upper grade levels leave much to be desired. There seems to be no room or tolerance for parent interaction other than for monetary or physical help. It was very also disturbing when I found out that they children were instructed by the principal to not reveal anything negative happening in school. Needless to say, I noticed that since the children were barely finishing 1/2 of their textbooks for the entire school year, I opted to transfer my child to a pricier but better suited school.
St. Ann's is a great school. It's amazing how involved they are with the learning experience. Halloween and Christmas time is so creative and special. I wish I could continue sending my kids there up until 6th grade. There is one thing I think they could look into---uniforms. I think an update would be nice (especially the girls uniforms). Other than that, St. Ann's is A +++
St. Ann's uses cooperative learning and it has made a huge difference in my children. They even give me the quiet signal. They are much happier in school and have really excelled in their grades. As parents we are very pleased.

I had a very good experience at St. Ann's over the past two years at both the Early Learning Center and Elementary School. Student/teacher ratios are lower than at local public schools. My two children both received quality education. The administration, faculty, and staff were wonderfully caring and responsive to student needs. The music program is outstanding, the athletic program is active but small, and other classes such as art and computer are a weekly part of the curriculum. Overall our experience was positive. My son had one negative comment: he would get very, very hot in the school uniform at times!
A qualified and caring staff. An involved and proactive education council (PTA). A good family / School environment overall.
