St. As is a wonderful school, focused on development of the whole child - values, spiritual, academics, family, athletics, service and more. We can't say enough positive things about the quality, dedication and love of the teachers, school leadership and parents - all focused on creating the best school we can be. Every day is a blessing to have our children attend St. As in a warm, diverse, open environment. With leading test scores in our area, a growing enrollment, and when it's all combined with faithful, value driven learning, it's a wonderful place for our kids.

For our family, it's not about the numbers. It's about how we FEEL being at St. A. For us, it isn't the high test scores, the School of Distinction status, or other things that do truly set this school apart. Two of our children have been at St. A since Kindergarten, and they're now in 5th & 7th grades. We also have a child who didn't flourish at two other private schools, but when put into the loving environment of St. A., has really surprised every one of us with his growth and accomplishments. There is something about this school that can't be expressed with words. When you attend this school, you just feel like you're home.

If you want your child to face punishment at every turn and you value rote memorization and deficit-based thinking, this is the school for you! The principal is anti-parent and anti-child. Most of the teachers are inept. There is no value placed on any facet of a child that does not translate into a high test grade. There are no accommodations made for children with learning challenges. If you value education and you love your child, stay away!

Our family came to St. Augustine when St. Joseph closed. We were apprehensive at first, but soon found it to be just as amazing as St. Joseph. We have one graduate from St. Augustine, one current and one just starting pre-school. The teachers and faculty are amazing and represent the true Catholic values we expect as parents every day. Our children are treated as individuals who learn in their own way, even with learning disabilities, and are valued members of the school. The teachers and faculty treat each child as one of their own. We originally came from the Comstock school district and were very disappointed with the lack of structure and the treatment of all the students. We left at 3rd grade. We have been very happy with the Catholic schools of Kalamazoo and would recommend them to anyone looking for individual, loving attention to teaching our children to be loving and productive members of our great society. As for the post that said the school is about booze guzzling socialites, I say the parent did not get involved with the school. It is a positive and loving environment any child would be lucky to attend.

St. A's amazes me every day. The teachers are amazing and the leadership is out of this world fantastic. Andra Zomers greets each and every student every single morning as they walk into the building, can't say that for any public school!

The staff at Saint A's is wonderful and take their jobs seriously as teachers. The curriculum is challengingly but the teachers go the extra mile to make sure that each student understands the concepts being taught. If you are looking for a school that will prepare your child academically and install community responsibility Saint A's is the perfect choice. All three of my childern have received an excellent education while attending the school.

Our four children have attended this school for six years. It has been an overwhelmingly positive experience. My oldest child is in 5th grade and my youngest just started preschool. My children have thrived at this Catholic School. Our childrens ablilities vary, but each of them have a positive attitude toward school. The teachers and principal care about each and every student. To sum it up this a school with a strong focus on living a Catholic life, as well a very strong academics.

Unless your child fits into the cookie cutter mold- don't bother. The school is also run by a group of booze drinking socialites who put their interests before their child's activities.

Our son entered St. Augustine two years ago. The principal, Andra Zommers is wonderful! She assessed our sons needs and helped us get him extra help, he was struggling to catch up after being in KPS. Teachers were dedicated, especially Beth Latshaw, his science teacher. The schools immaculately clean inside and out. The children perform community help tasks, they are polite and disciplined. We have been very impressed with this school academically, spiritually and otherwise.

I came St. Augustine as part of the St. Mary school family when St. Mary closed in June 2004. It has been a very positive experience to see so many teachers and students working together to make this transition a success for all.

St. Augustine Cathedral School is part of the Catholic Schools of Greater Kalamazoo and reflects well their commitment to excellence in education. We have 2 children in this school and we are very happy with their overall education.
