Mater Dolorosa Catholic School 5

Teachers go above and beyond to accommodate and provide one on one learning. My child's teacher dedicates her own personal free time to help tutor my child. Mater Dolorosa offers a great learning opportunity for each child and is very proficient with building a solid Catholic foundation within the entire church, school, and community.

This is an excellent school. I attended and several of my family members attended MDS. Most of the teachers are great and willing to help. The classes are small and allow time for each individual student to have one on one time with the teachers if needed. I would recomment this school to anyone. You will learn a lot more here than in some large school where all they care about is your money.

When my child started MDS this year, she didn't know how to read. Her teacher, Ms. Carlyn worked with her and in a few weeks was reading like she had been for months. Not only is this an excellent school, it is also apart of an excellent parish. The teachers are devoted to helping the children excel. They teach them good manners and get to learn about God.

We are very pleased with not only the educational services offered at MDS but are also at peace knowing that every day our child goes to school he is surrounded by loving teachers and support.

I am excited about my child beginning this year. The principal at Mater Dolorosa was very nice and they excellent academics as well as extra curricular activities. They are also all for parents being involved.At the public school there wasn't much for parents to do at the school and I felt somewhat uninvolved. Ms. Beverly the school secretary is a sweetheart,they also have an afterschool program which is great for working parents.

My child needed extra help in Math but did not receive it. The teacher did not appear to be interested in helping students learn. With only nine students in the class there should have been ample time for short individual instuction in areas where a sudent is weak. Now I'm faced with summer school and burnout for my child.
