Saint Boniface School5

Our family recently moved to Indiana from out of state and we have been very impressed with Saint Boniface. Strong academics. The principal is extremely hard working and knowledgeable. Emphasis on Catholic education is an integral part of the curriculum. All Saints Day was a treat. The children chose a Saint, did research, created an oral presentation, a paper, and dressed as their Saint for mass that day. The students then were in the gym after mass to present to the parents.
In our first year at St. Boniface, we have been impressed by the exceptional care our son's teacher give to him and into communicating with us. Veteran parents have been so welcoming to us! There is plenty of integrated Catholic prayer and activities throughout the day. A professional atmosphere can be found everywhere thanks to the uniforms and dress codes. I sense a positive attitude and spirit from all I encounter. There are many opportunities yet no pressure for parents to be involved.
We have been so pleased with St. Boniface school! Our daughter is challenged by the strong academics and encouraged by the excellent teachers. She has opportunities to excel in music, art and athletics as well. The St. Boniface community has been so welcoming and kind from the first day. We highly recommend St. Boniface school!
I can't even begin to tell you what a pleasure it is to teach at St. Boniface! Sr Lenore leads. She is exemplary and fosters an excellent relationship between students and staff. Academics are great, and the focus on God in all aspects of school life makes this school shine.
St. Boniface has created an environment of true learning for the students. My children feel safe and eager to learn there. As a matter of fact, it was just that eagerness, not of my own children, but of the students we observed on our first visit to the school, that truly drew us to St. Boniface. The teacher had each student involved and they were anxious to show her that they knew the answer! We are very impressed with the entire staff and for their compassion for the students and desire for student success. A small school such as this relies on more than the staff. The parent volunteer community is very strong, assisting the school with a variety of duties on a regular basis. Not only does this help the staff tremendously, but it also shows the children that we, as parents, stress the importance of education and how much we respect those who provide that education to them. The academic program pushes each child to grow, but does allow for extra assistance should a student fall behind in a particular area. We are thrilled that we found St. Boniface School and we plan to continue with Lafayette Catholic Schools for the remainder of our children's education.
They have the most caring teachers and they prepare your children for the future! The teachers are caring and have small class sizes which gives them a better chance to educate and give help where it is needed.
