Sending my children to St. Charles School was the best choice we could have made for our family. Our experience has been overwhelmingly positive, in pre-K through 3rd grade, thus far. The academic curriculum is satisfactory & challenging. Teachers/faculty are very approachable, and genuinely appreciate parental involvement, whether it be volunteering in the classroom, or being part of a plan to help their child overcome any academic, social, or behavioral challenges.... It's always a perfect balance of nurture & discipline; Ultimately, giving the child a great sense of pride & accomplishment, and laying a strong academic & social foundation for them. The religious education extends FAR beyond Catholicism, as many non-Catholic students/families attend SCS. Dropping my kids off for the day, at a place where, personal accountability, moral standards, human decency, GOOD MANNERS, are not only reinforced, but EXPECTED, is probably the biggest difference I see between parochial & public school, in my recent years of comparing the two. If you're researching your elementary school options, good luck & I hope this encourages you to learn more about St. Charles School!!
