School Official Point of View

This school is not only a family based Christian school, it's got a great value system, teaches children respect for themselves and others. DEFINITELY worth you stopping by and considering this for your children from their Early Childhood Center at age 3 to their full day kindergarten and through 8th grade.

Supports LD students: Agree

I have no first-hand experience with managing learning differences, but I have heard some compelling stories from fellow parents about what the school has done to help their children realize their full potential and raise their self-esteem. We are all very excited to learn that an early intervention program for children with autism will be on site shortly. At St. Alphonsus, all are welcome!

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Our new principal, Linda Chorazy, is a true leader. I can't say enough good things about her. She streamlined the budget while finding a way to upgrade materials and equipment, raised the satisfaction and camaraderie of the faculty even while raising the expectations on them, and she is fierce about making St. Al's the best it can be.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Faith formation is a cornerstone of Catholic education, and it shows in the children's respectful, caring, and generous behavior. They look out for each other and volunteer in the church and community. I get many compliments the behavior of my children when we're out and about, so the school definitely is complementing and reinforcing the values we have at home.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
There will always be a teacher that doesn't click with you or your child somewhere along the way during the school years, but nearly all of the teachers my children have had are/were excellent. Concerns are handled by the teacher and the principal swiftly and effectively. There are a number of teachers who are really stand-outs in the profession, bringing the absolute best out of the students and inspiring learning and growth well beyond the norm.

Such a welcoming, caring environment! We moved here about 3 years ago, after having previous experiences with 2 wonderful, award-winning schools. Despite coming in with high expectations, St. Al's is the BEST of all! The teachers discover what interests each child and engage them where they are. The coursework is challenging and creative; any problems parents noted in reviews prior to our arrival must have been remedied. If there is a concern, our new principal is on top of it. She is tough but caring--a truly skilled and experienced leader. I am a scientist myself, so I can say with assurance that the STEAM program here is excellent! And, especially in the middle school, the children are inspired by the language arts program; I have never seen children so enthusiastic about reading circles and creative writing. The children and families are kind to each other and the school, parish, and even the community work beautifully together. Something for everyone in sports and after school clubs. Just wonderful!

Outstanding school. Warm, loving, energetic community of teachers, administrators, parents, and students. Full day 3K, 4K and kindergarten with on-site after school care for working families. Lovely, safe, well-maintained campus. Amazing, talented, big-hearted teachers that give lots of individual attention to each student. Spirited and engaging athletic program. Beautiful faith formation with real attention paid to ethics and good behavior for all students. Academically and developmentally, St. Al's gives kids a big head start on high school and beyond -- we see it year after year in the graduates. Our family has been here seven years now, and the community has been amazing for us. Just an excellent school that gives back everything you put into it and so much more.

all of my children are Honor students and that is the work of the teachers

Oh trust me they get homework. Nothing that they cant handle, but it prepares them for high scjool and college

I cant possibly even summarize what a great school this is. The students are educated in a safe, Christian, drug free environment with teachers and staff who deeply care about the students. Academic scores are off the charts, its a Blue Ribbon school of excellence, they have a science program that is phenomenal. There are so many sports and activities after school. Their art program is AMAZING, and dont miss their spring musical run by the music teacher Mrs. Duncan, you would think your seeing a broadway show not a middle school production. I have an older son who went there who is now in medical school, all of his classmates excelled over the public school kids. My two younger girls currently attend St.Als and love the school to pieces, that is like a second home for them. The class sizes are just perfect, children get individual attention. They have a very involved PARENT SCHOOL ASSOCIATION, with wonderful parents doing wonderful things for the children. Trust the positive reviews posted here and invest in St. Alphonsus, even if you have to sacrifice something financially. You will reap your rewards a million times over and be so grateful that you did.
