St. Anna offers a great combination of values and educational focus along with a forward focus of technology and state of the art tools for students and teachers. The environment has been excellent for my two sons who are thriving at St. Anna. The students are encouraged to participate in 'specials' as well as to interact with all the grade levels. This creates a nurturing environment where students feel safe and are allowed to focus on their school work. St. Anna is providing a solid educational base that I am confident will allow my sons to grow.
St Anna's is a hidden gem. It is a Pre K through Grade 8 Catholic school where roughly 50% of the students are not Catholic. It offers a small classroom environment with a very solid group of teachers and administration staff. Both the Headmaster (Pastor) and Principal are new so there is a period of change/transition underway now and progressing nicely. There is high parent involvement (great opportunity) and link to the parish as well. It is common to see parishioners at school events (fundraisers, basketball games, etc). St Anna's aligns well with the cultural diversity that is the city of Leominster as exemplified through it language and arts program. The school is also cutting edge as demonstrated by having invested in IPads for learning and skill development for its students. They offer financial assistance and have a great family tuition plan that encourages entire families to be part of the school and community. Overall the school offers quality education from dedicated educators, committed (and growing) parent base and most importantly a fun, faith based environment for the children. Our three kids can't wait to go to school each day.....and THAT says it all!!
We have been very happy with St. Anna especially with the 1:1 iPads in grades 4 - 8, the solid academic curriculum and the peer group. We just attended back to school night and were impressed with the Math, Science and Reading program for the middle school. The team teaching in Grades 4 and 5 was also good to see. In addition, the school provides enrichment programs including Design Squad, eCybermission, live theater, basketball, ski club, cross country and engages the kids in community service projects. It has affordable tuition rates and parents who actively get involved in the school. You can check the school out at www.stannaschool.org.
I have 2 children that attend St Anna School. This school has a true family atmosphere. If you are looking for a great community of families and a great education this is the place to be! We had a recent change in administration along with a whole set of new teachers and I am super pleased. There are a variety of extra curricular activities that range from the arts, to sports, to science to community involvement. It is a hidden gem with the latest updates in technology (iPads in the middle school)!!! My kids love to go to school and are learing not only the academic necessities but most importantly how to be moral upstanding citizens in today's world.
St.Anna is a small friendly home like feeling school. Teachers and staff show a true intrest in all the children. They teach values and morals with a strong religion base. The education is top notch.
Being part of a small, caring, faith-based community is what St. Anna School is all about. With class sizes of about 17 for each grade level, you can be sure that your child is getting the attention he or she requires. They have reading support and enrichment for the lower grades, and students in the upper grades (with the benefit of a very low student/faculty ratio) have daily access to the latest technology. Students are exposed to three languages while at St. Anna: Italian, French and Spanish. Teachers here care about their work, and their students as people. Their work is not just a job, but a calling. The lunch program (included with their tuition) has been recently reworked to include healthier choices, like a daily salad bar! There is a reason many students drive more then 20 minutes one way to attend classes here daily. Give them a call to arrange a visit with the Principal and school.
St. Anna is a small Catholic school in Leominster, MA. The class size is small which leads to a direct interaction between student and teacher. The teaching staff is dedicated to seeing each student progress and will take whatever is necessary to see that goal achieved. The headmaster and principal are directly involved with the teaching at the school and strive to make a personal connection with each student. The PTO is very active and has helped to fund many enrichment programs. I currently have 3 children in the school with a 4th to enter next year. The children are thriving and are proud to be students at St. Anna.
St. Anna's School provides a quality education that teaches the whole child, helping them to grow both spiritually and academically. It is a place where every child is recognized as a gift from God, and every day spent at school is a teachable moment in a safe, nurturing environment. The students are challenged to become the best version of themselves that God intends them to be.
St. Anna Catholic School in Leominster, MA has become like a second home for our children. With all the extracurricular activities and faith centered opportunities, it is a place where we enjoy having our children spend time and spending time with them. Because it is a small school community, all the children from the youngest to the oldest become friends with each other and help each other grow physically, academically and spiritually. This is our fourth year at St. Anna Catholic School, and we couldn't be happier!
Pulled my child out after one year. Same reasons as parent below. They don't care about getting your child help to improve. They just want their tuition check.
My son has been there for 4 yrs and I love this school. They have wonderful teachers and a great principal. My son has wonderful friends. I know that he is getting the best education possible. Go St Anna's!
I went there Teachers Were great graduate from 2007-2008 went there for 10 years loved it
My child finished his first year of school. He has learned so much from his kindergarden class. The teacher would send home weekly updates on what the students have learned and what they will be covering the next week. I was always being updated on my son's progress. The entire staff is wonderful at this school. Although it was sad for my son and I to say goodbye to the teachers I know that he will be ready for grade 1 because of the exceptional education he has received from St Anna's
