Map of St. Anthony School address.

I believe that the principle is the head of any good school. St. Anthony finally has a strong principal, but the staff doesn't cater to students of diverse races. There are no programs to inform students of their history. If the children s parents do not have any alphabets behind their name and are from low income families, you are not treated fairly. Most of the students have trouble in the classes and teachers offer little assistance to them. There are hardly any extracurricular activities. Some of the faculty needs to retire or update their teaching skills to accommodate the students that they teach. Students are graded so hard and are given little chance at success. Where is the nurturing spirit in their VISION STATEMENT they refer to in their handbook.

I went to this school from pre-k3 to the 8th grade. It was challenging and stressful at times but i mostly did enjoy going to school every morning. They make it easy to get involved and be active in the little amount of sports and clubs. A lot of the rules are kind of unfair but you learn to cope with them (no finger nail polish, no make-up till 8th grade and even then it has to be light, and other rules such as this). Oh and the mothers who helped out when i was there Loved to pick their kids as the stars in Everything so the always hurt. I truly miss this school and wish all the years didn't go by as fast as they did.

I have to agree that the office staff is very rude! I will comment later on the academic level of the school in the future.

I am very happy with the staff and academics of this school. If we get the current leadership of HNM we will be leaving. Please do not ruin our school.

My son has attended St. Anthony since kindergarden . He has excelled academicaly as well as spiritualy. The teachers know each child on an individual basis because it is small classes. Everyone know everyone and supports them.

Both of my sons have attended this school since they were 3 years old. Classes are small and students are given a lot of extra attention. Students receive an excellent, personal education at this school.
