I used to attend this school. It was a great experiance for me and a great change of pace from public schools. The teachers and staff are very helpful and gave every child including myself all the help we needed to excel in academics, our faith, and life.
We love the school the parents are involved and our kids are also learning values.
We absolutely love St. Damian School. From the teachers on through the entire staff, they just care. The parents and teachers alike participate in many of the school events. This only promotes positive behavior in our children. He's only in first grade and I can see the behavioral and spiritual difference in him. We are very blessed to have found St. Damian School.
St. Damian is such a fantastic school. My daughter started there in the three day kindergarten program and just blossomed. She was reading chapter books by the summer, I know every child is different but the care and attention was amazing. She is now in first grade and is doing excellent! The staff, other parents, and church provide such a wonderful family atmosphere I couldnt justify sending my children anywhere else! I also have another daughter who will be starting preschool in the fall of 05! They also offer a number of extra activities! They have a basket ball team, soccer, they offer brownies, boyscouts! You name it! This truely is a wonderful school!
I have 2 children currently attending St. Damian and have had a great experience with all teachers that they have had. My oldest is in 5th grade and has had top notch teachers since he started in Kindergarten. The teachers are easily accesible and work with you to improve your child's gifts and weaknesses. Mrs. Perna, our principal, has done a tremendous job since coming to our school. She loves the children and her job and it is evident daily. She puts in many extra hours as do the teachers. We have a very devoted staff. A Christian atmosphere where children can learn and become better Christians themselves. St. Damian's is a school you can have faith in.
Mrs. Stempin teaches a great K-5 day program. I have 2 very different daughters that attend and now one daughter is in 3rd grade and the other in 2nd. My 3rd grader is 'gifted' and she got a great start with this extraordinary teacher. My 2nd grader loved learning and made great strides in her development under this teacher. I only wish that all the teachers at this school were as good.
We are extremely pleased with the wonderful education our daughter is receiving at St. Damian. The principal, teachers, staff and parents work very hard to provide the best possible learning experience for the children. As a teacher myself, I can honestly say that the children are given every opportunity to achieve in not only education, but also in life skills that are equally important to success in the future. Each child is challenged and encouraged to be their best.
St. Damian is the best school in the Livonia School District in my opinion! The teachers are caring, smart, generous, up to date on the newest teaching techniques and very willing to help every student succeed. The classes are smaller than other catholic schools in the area so the children get lots of individual attention. Our Principal, Mrs. Perna, is top notch. She truly loves children and is very good with them, but she is no push over. Everyone at St. Damian School knows who is in charge and how they are expected to act. That helps the students so much, they have guidelines that make sense and someone to enforce them. St. Damian also is in the process of finishing up their gym and brand new church! It is very exciting to be at the school right now, lots of postive feelings about being there. I went to St. Damian as a child and now I have 2 children in the school, 1st and 3rd grade, I cannot even imagine my children attending any other school. They will be here until 8th grade and I know when they go on to high school, that they will be well prepared, in social and educational aspects.
