The teachers and staff at St. Petronille School have closely watched over and guided my children academically, behaviorally, socially and emotionally over the last nine years. The attention paid to each student - inside the classroom and out - consistently amazes me.
I have loved that there are so many opportunities for parent involvement - there is a team philosophy that exists between parents, staff and administration for making our kids the best students and the best people they can be.
The parents make up a warm community of people that works together, helps eachother and looks out for all of the students - on campus and around town outside of school, too. It is so nice to know every single one of my kids' classmates, and it is reassuring to know that my kids are similarly known by the other parents.
St Petronille is full of committed teachers, welcoming activities (sports/arts/music), engaged students, and active parents. The culture is such that the youngest children are comforted and the older students are challenged. Overall it has been an amazing place for our children to learn, play, and grow.
Great teachers and facilities. The principal truly cares about the students. There is a great parent organization and school board that is very active for the school. This is the only elementary school in the area with a pool.
I am graduating tonight. I will miss this school; including all of the teachers classes and fun activities to encourage learning. There is anm extracurricular for everyone, from various sports to Science Olympiad and Chess Club. Top marks St. Pets!
