I'd like to preface this review by saying that our family evaluated four other schools before deciding on St. Anne's (and St. Anne's is our parish). Our daughter is currently in kindergarten at and we've been very happy. The teachers strike the perfect balance between nurturers and educators -- she loves her teachers! We have always wanted an environment that would provide more than a basic education. Values, manners and morals are such important qualities, and knowing these attributes are being reinforced at school is invaluable. The administration and office staff are engaging and welcoming. They take great pride in giving families a truly personal experience. These things, coupled with the overall community dynamic, and we couldn't be more thrilled.

We are a new family to St. Annes Catholic school. Our daughter is a first grader and we feel so blessed to a part of this very special school. Mrs. Peters her teacher has taken her from a kindergartener to a serious school age student. We are very pleased with the loving, kind academic environment of the school while focusing on the teachings of Christ and Gods love. We highly recommend St. Annes!

We are a new family to St. Anne's and have been so overwhelmed by the out pouring of support from the teachers and community welcoming my family to the school. The first week of school for the kids, the kids came home with welcome letters from their class mates welcoming them all into their new school. This little act of kindness made such a difference to my son! We are truly blessed to be part of this amazing community!

I live in Cary and I have a third grader and a fifth grader at Saint Anne Parish School. We feel so blessed to be a part of this community of faith and learning. The faculty and staff are warm and friendly, and the teachers really do work with your child's strengths and weaknesses. My children love it!

As Parents we love St. Anne for many reasons: faith based learning, strong curriculum, and the exceptional staff who put their hearts and souls into teaching and caring for our kids. They make students feel like family. The best part is that my kids enjoy school too! I wouldn't change a thing!

I have had 4 children attend St. Anne's. I am grateful for the understanding, patience, and respect that the teaching staff has giving me and my children. Three children are now in high school and they were all completely prepared for high school as well as placed in many advanced/AP classes. With the faith based education and awesome staff (friendly and loving) my husband and I knew we made the best choice for our kids. And our two oldest going off to collect are getting scholarships which is also putting a big smile on our faces. I can only say good things about St. Anne's

Saint Annes has taught my daughter so much more than just academics. They teach kindness, manners, patience, respect, and a general love of people, places and things! I love this school and know our family made the right choice when we enrolled here;)

We chose SAS for our family because of its small friendly community, Catholic education, strong academic environment and variety of extra-curricular activities for all ages. The school offers Preschool, Full Day Kindergarten, Elementary and Middle school. Everything is on one campus- with flexible before and after school enrichment and activities! We could not be happier that we made this choice and investment!

We initially enrolled out son at St. Anne's school because at the age of 4 we thought he would be in a better learning environment than at the daycare facility he attended. Not only were we correct in that assumption, but were beyond pleased at the level of learning and instruction he received there. Mrs. Siggeman is great and so is Mrs. Such. The environment in the entire school is warm and inviting and we would highly recommend St. Anne's to any parent. We truly feel that our son has head start on learning from his time at St. Anne's school. Brian

During 2011, we visited many schools in the area. After much consideration, we switched our daughter from the public schools and it has made a big difference. Our daughter is getting a well-rounded education in an environment where children are truly loved and respected (and are expected to reciprocate and display these qualities to others). The academics at the school are stellar and well-balanced. By this we mean that in addition to reading, grammar, spelling, math, social studies, and science each day, the students also have 2 periods a day where they have art, music, gym, library or computers. Our daughter scores very high in national testing but has been completely challenged in her daily work. The staff and administration really work with parents to ensure that children are challenged and supported in the ways needed. The after-school programs provide a fantastic mix of sports, language and intellectual workshops allowing for students to gain new skills and enrichment. This is a National Blue Ribbon School, one of the few private schools in the State that has received such an award, and when you go there, you'll see why!

The best thing about this school is the teachers. The teachers at St. Anne work so hard to give the kids the best education they can get. It is a great thing to see teachers who care about their students so much. - Mark

I can't say enough good things about St. Anne's Catholic School! There always seems to be definite access to the teachers, staff and even the principal. If I have any questions regarding the school, academics or my son they respond very quickly to emails & phone calls. They challenge the students academically and they are exceeding the level of work that most kids can do in the public schools around us. They are being taught well in advance of what their years are. They also offer great extra-curricular activities. My son has been there for 3 years now and he really enjoys it! -KD

I have 2 children attending St. Anne's School, one in 4th grade and one in 5th. I appreciate that it's a very safe and loving environment for my children to go to everyday. They have good communication with the parents and I'm very pleased with their teachers. -Colleen S

St. Anne School has been a great part in the development of our children. They are challenged each and every day from some of the top faculty and staff in the district. There is a special feeling of "community and family" everytime we walk through the doors. A special "thank you" goes out to all who have made St. Anne such a wonderful place to send our children. - Todd

I graduated from St Annes in 1967. First and second grades in the old school which is long since torn down. The rest in the existing building. I have so many good memories I cannot begin to share them here. They shaped my life in such a great way. I entered High School at BCHS way ahead of the public school kids and was in advanced classes all the way through public high school in math and science. It wasn't whether or not I'd go to the university, but which one I'd go to. I hope that this is still true. It was a great school for me. I hope it will be as great for all children there going forward.

St Anne is a great school. The only negative is that their is no diversity so if you are hispanic, asian, african america, etc. you may feel out of place.

St Anne is a great school period. The principal, the teachers and the Catholic community encourage students to love learning, be a part of the community and it's Blue Ribbon status means this school rates in the top 10% in the nation for test scores, not just Illinois. We are so happy with the school, with the curriculum and the atmosphere. I am sure there are cliques at every school, but with small class sizes you get to know every parent, teacher and administrator at the school and your child feels a part of the school, not just as one of many. The values along with the education cannot be beat by any public school in Barrington. And how nice to be able to celebrate Christmas, Easter and talk about God and morals in school. We just love it!!! Donna

Academically, you could not ask for a better school. The school is a Blue Ribbon School, which places it in the top schools in Illinois,with even better test scores than the Barrington public school down the block from us. The teachers are also qualified and caring, as is the staff.The one main reason that I have, as well as others, considered leaving is because of self righteous, overly judgmental, clickish parents who completely control their children's friendships and think their kids are better than yours when they are all human. If you are not part of the elite crowd, then your child isn't included in playdates/parties, even if their child likes yours.If parents would practice what the Church preaches regarding loving one another for who they are, not for $$, the school would be A+. There's something wrong when a smart, fun child has more friends outside school than in.

My daughters went to St. Anne for K to 6. This is a superior start to getting education above the neck without competition for clothing, and material goods. One is an Ivy school graduate now, another is in graduate school now. Both learned life long learnings which I doubt they could have obtained through CCD.

My family has been a part of St.Anne Catholic School for more than 9 years. We have 4 years and have been extremely pleased with the quality of education provided at SAS. Next year our daughter is entering a catholic high school enrolled in at least 2 honors classes. The faith based education provided by caring committed teachers is outstanding. Computer, art, spanish and music are part of the everyday curriculum. Other extra curriculars include sports, beginning in 5th grade, band, chessclub, theater and spelling and geopraghy bees. Although every community has its flaws, our general experience at SAS has been extremely positive and we find it to be a warm welcoming community both for us and our 4 children.

I am a graduate of Saint Anne's. It is a great school. The teachers are so fun and willing to help out. We don't have very many extra-curricular activities. The school is very nice and inviting. I love the middle school teachers- Mrs. Zimmerman, Blake, Krystyn, Leigh, Lee, and Flessor! I love Miss Lavin! You guys prepared me for highschool and made me the person I am today. I truly love the middleschool teachers, there are truly no better out there!
