My children are in their 7th & 3rd year at St. Anthony. We could not be happier with their academic progress & social & moral development. The principal & teachers are very experienced & go above & beyond to meet each child's needs whether they are advanced, struggling, or right on level. They are very approachable & easy to contact for questions & concerns. The school is constantly striving to provide the very best to the students -this year student i-pads have been added & Spanish is back in the curriculum! The school does not have a playground-but there are ample balls of all kinds, basketball nets, soccer goals, jump ropes, & hopskotches on large black top areas & a large grass field. The children play tag & fun games they make up themselves! PE is taught every week by the classroom teacher. There are 2 major fundraisers a year-each family is expected to help out. Expectations are minimal-in the fall each child is asked to sell 1 box of chocolate -in the spring each student is asked to raise $20 for the walk-a-thon. Very reasonable-we are a small community & we all pitch in to do our part. Come visit & you will know that St. Anthony is by far the BEST school around!
Overall, a great school! PROS -Great student teacher ratio -Wonderful teachers w/ vast knowledge -A real sense of family among parents & teachers. -Teaches & reinforces a great moral code for behavior -The Advanced Reading Program- Students read books & earn incentives for reading. -Big Buddy Program - An upper classman is paired w/ a younger student. CONS -The school is old. It needs a face-lift. -Limited resources: If your kid is advanced or lacking in any area, there are limited resources (i.e. staff) to aid in excelling or assisting a child. -No PE. Recess is provided w/ no playground equipment & recreational equipment is scarce. -The Spanish program is lacking this year. -Principal- Not a very 'warm, fuzzy' kind of person to be working w/ students. -School is canceled / delayed the morning of school. Bad for those needing to plan ahead. -Fundraisers! - LOTS! They may be necessary to keep the school open & pay the teachers, but seriously, receiving calls at home because a student hasn't "sold enough" is preposterous. Also, singling kids out because they haven't sold is a horrible thing to do to a child (i.e. out of uniform days for X amount sold singles kids out).
My child is in his second year at St. Anthony and we could not be more happy with our choice to send him here. It truly feels like a family. All of the kids know each other and the older kids are like big buddies to the little ones. We are also very pleased with the level and quality of education that he is receiving. It is a great community to be a part of and we highly recommended this school.
This school is awesome. My children are in their third year at St. Anthony. All of the teachers know all of the students by name. This school has a teacher student ratio of 1:12. The teachers are experienced and show a strong Christian example. My children love attending this school.
I graduated here 34 years ago My children just completed this school 2 years ago. The Pricipal and staff are dedicated and first rate. I am sure you will like this school. The tradition of working in small classes with teachers who accept considerably less than comparable public school teachers because they want to teach. That makes all the difference.
