The staff are just incredible! Always showing concern for the children in and out of school. The curriculum is well suited for the age group, if not a little advanced; but that's the way it should be. I love this school and my three children will continue to attend.

My School is wonderful and I am so happy that my children attend there! They have learned more there than public school children in their same grade.

St. Casimir is a wonderful school. The staff is wonderful. The principal is just as amazing. Of course like every school it could have improvements both in the building and it's curriculum but overall a wonderful school. They have wonderful programs. Everyone cares a lot for the kids. I look forward to watching my kids grow with all the wonderful teachers.

As a parent, I'm happy with St. Casimir School. A few years back, my husband and I were contemplating pulling our son from this school. In retrospect, I'm so glad we didn't. There are some amazing teachers & staff here. I have witnessed many who go above and beyond. The new principal is wonderful. I absolutely love seeing the enthusiam she brings, along with the added programs continually being implemented since her arrival. There are also many opportunities for parents to become involved here. The faith based foundation is important to us and this school follows through. They have a church next door and a chapel within the school. There's always something going on at the school or church level. My son will be graduating in a couple years; It will be sad saying goodbye to the school.

I think this school is great! Coming from another private school in Chicago, my 5th grader had to adjust to a more rigurous schedule of school and home work; that's not a complaint! I'm glad we chose this school because he's now reading at a higher level than when he came into St. Cas. Also, the teachers are very responsive to emails and you can view your child's grades online. Coming from a working parent, they are very organized and thoughtful with regard to communicating events, which means a lot to me and I feel very welcomed.

St. Casimir In Hammond, In. is one of the best school I could ever ask for my daughter's education. I've seen the impact that their education has instilled in my daughter. The staff and teachers and wonderful and they show the care about the students. That very important because they make sure no student is left behind. ThanK you Saint Casimir

All of my children have attended St Casimir School, my oldest is 25 and my youngest is 9 and currently enrolled in 3rd grade there. The staff really cares about your children, they are always going above and beyond for the families there. I have been thru a lot of changes and still the school is a wonderful place for my children. I choose catholic education for my children number one for the religion program but I live near several other schools and am very happy with St Casimir that I continue to send my children there. The church and school are one, making you feel so welcomed. I have not experienced a teacher there that has not went above and beyond for their students. We have an awesome principal who is doing new and exciting things for us and attends all of our social events. The education you receive here is amazing, always challenging the students and encouraging them to do their best. My son is on the honor roll and is never bored there. I can not say enough about our Blue Ribbon School, I am proud and honored that my son attends there and that my other children are alumni's.

We love this school. We have sent our 3 children to St. Casimir school and we are very pleased with the results both academically and morally. The principle and teachers truly care about the students and will help in any way they can. There is a helpful and family atmosphere.

What a fantastic school, my whole perception of preschool being glorified daycare was changed by the incredible pre-k3 program headed by Miss. Chris. She develops a bond with the kids and partners with the parents, giving us valuable insight on what to expect from our kids learning experience while teaching the kids skills and self discipline they will be able to use throughout their education. The office staff is friendly, super helpful and the church is a great place to worship. I highly recommend here to all my friends and family, wish I would of knows sooner about here for my other kids.

St. Casimir School is a National School of Excellence. They have great teachers, great staff, great principal and great priests. The teachers are extremely knowledgeabe. My son has gone through this school and every teacher there has been excellent. They have taught him more than I could have imagined. They are caring and make each child feel very comfortable and safe. If the students are struggling they try and help in all ways possible to give them the education they deserve. I could not have picked a better school. It was worth every penny.

My son has attended St. Cas since Pre-k4 when Mrs. Mendez was the teacher. I am saddened that she left before the school year was complete. She was an extraordinary teacher & for every student that came into her classroom, she made each child feel special. She consoled crying 4yrs olds as if they were her one & reassured parents that all would be fine. She even went as far as providing her cell number if a child wanted to call mom/dad or vice versa. She will be a blessing to the next school! Like Mrs. Mendez, I had the pleasure of meeting a few other teachers that are just as passionate about teaching & pleasant...Mr. Eckard, you did a great job with 1st grade! I've rated St. Cas average based on other personnel not being as cordial. Blue Ribbon School should have Blue Ribbon Staff.

8 yrs ago it could of been great. times have changed and it is very hard to feel welcomed as a parent. No matter how many times you want to help out it is always the same small group that snubs you.

I went to St. Casimir School for 8 years, and it was really fun. I think it was a very good school. I loved all the things we did and the teachers were fun. The only ba thing was that the 8th graders arent that prepared for highschool. That is because they are too focused on the play and haunted house and too busy taking care of the kindergardeners. That all I have to say. LMP

I am a parent of a 4th grader. My child has been at St. Caismirs since Kindergarden and the school along with the teachers and current principal, have just mad ethe most wonderful changes with the school. A couple of years ago the school was talking about not opening their doors because enrollment had dropped tremendously, thank God for Mr. McCabe. Enrollment has risen and my child can stay in a private school.

I am a parent and alumni of St Cas and have 2 graduates of St Cas. I would highly recommend this school my two sons who have graduated have gone on to high school to do amazing things they are in advanced classes and have turned out to be wonderful individuals. The first review was from our former administration the current one is outstanding. A top rate school with I-Step scores of 90.4 passing. It is a wonderful school

I would recommend St Cas to anyone who wants their child to get the best education. The only issues I have with the school is that their is not enough parental involvement. So much more could be done if more parents would get involved! The athletic department is doing a lot to get more students and their parents involved in sports. The music teacher has done a great job with the children. I recently attended one of the best Spring Musicals since my children started going to St Cas! Great Job everyone!

My son has been enrolled at St Casimir since Aug 2005. He started in Pre K 3 and is now in Kindergarten. The educational development that my son has shown in just 2 years has blown me away. In Pre K he learned from Mrs. Mendez, how to count to 300 by tens, how to count to one hundred, know all his alphabet and recognize them all, know all his colors, know all the major shapes, to write his full name, and know his address and phone number. As well as learn the Our father, and the Hail Mary. Mrs. Sims has taught my son in his kindergarten class how to start writing sentences , how to start adding and subtracting , as well as learn prayers such as The Glory Be, Grace, and Hail Holy Queen. And that is just in 3 months I can only imagine what he will learn by the end of the year. I am grateful to the dictated teachers, our new principal, Father Leo, and Father Bill for all the hard work that they do to make St Casimir the wonderful school that it is.

My son has been in the pre-k program since September and he has improved all of his skills tremendously. He was in a pre-k program in Chicago and I was disappointed to say the least. I would recommend St. Cas to anybody looking for a good quality education in Indiana. The entire staff is great and we are all treated with respect, dignity and appreciation for sending our children to that school. The new principal is great. To Miss Mendez- thank you for being such a wonderful teacher!
