Xavier Catholic School is an ABSOLUTELY wonderful school! One of the things We enjoy most about our children attending is that we know they are educating our child's hearts as well as their minds! We also love that they allow you to be as involved as you want and the ladder. There are so many events for you to be involved in or volunteer for. I realize that not everyone has time to volunteer but they do find ways other than volunteering for people to help out. They only have 1 required Fundraiser and the other is optional and actually really FUN. You spend 10-20 at the most. The school has opened their arms to our family and we truly feel blessed to be apart of such an Amazing environment! My children enjoy going to school each and every day and love experiencing Christ in their daily teachings. We feel so secure every day knowing that our children are loved and cared for. I also know that they deal with any problems with a swift hand and smart follow up. Xavier is a breath of fresh air and we are so happy to have this as our choice.
My children attended Xavier for preschool and kindergarten. It was a wonderful experience! The class sizes were small (10 in pre-k and 12 in kindergarten), the teachers were warm and caring, and the other parents and children were very welcoming. This especially meant much to us, as we are a military family. I was not the Room Mom, but was openly invited to, and did, attend each class party and field trip. The principal and teachers worked hard to create a safe, nurturing environment for the students. Lessons were rigorous and steeped in Christian values. Though not Catholic, my children felt accepted and included. I would highly recommend Xavier to any family, especially those coming to Ft Leavenworth; my only regret is not being able to stay longer.
We are a military family and have LOVED Xavier for three years. The preschool is the best in town. The kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade teachers love what they do and truly love their students. My children have thrived at Xavier, we will be sad to leave. Do not hesitate to choose Xavier if you want the best for your children! As I pass the Fort Leavenworth students loading the school buses every morning, I am happy to drive my kiddos across town where they will feel Christ's love all day.
The teachers and staff may seem warm and welcoming at first, but after the school year starts, they are not. There was no parent involvement except to raise more money for the school. They "ask" that you participate in every fund raiser. I found questionable methods of discipline with my child and withdrew midway through the year. There is only one teacher per classroom. There are no other witnesses to see what goes on inside the classroom. If you are military, check with the school liaison officer on Fort Leavenworth.
Xavier Catholic School is full of fun, energetic students who participate often in fundraising for causes and praying for others. We are supported by caring, involved parents. Our teachers strive for excellence from themselves and the students. All of that, combined with a school spirit that never ends, makes Xavier a GREAT SCHOOL!
The academic programs at Xavier are excellent in my opinion. At my child's age (early elementary), there aren't many extracurricular activities, but they do have music and art. Teachers encourage parent to be very involved in their child's education, and most of them are.
