The pre-K is an excellent program. My child was not happy in his previous schools because they did not challenge him. This program works on both the academics and the socialization skills from where the child is. They see the children as individuals and gear the work toward where they are. The teachers and staff are always willing to work with the parents.
We found this school inappropriate for our children. While providing a solid Catholic religious education and a sincere love of the faith, I feel the academic education to be inferior to that of the local public schools. Library is inadequate. No science fair, no librarian, no comprehensive art program, no nurse, no counselor, no playground, no balanced meals - junk food before, during and after school. No differentiation or enrichment for students needing more challenge; school is geared toward average students. Lots of xeroxed, 10-year-old worksheets; little creative lesson plans. Our children were very unhappy there.
Love this school! Everyone knows everyone and parents are very involved with their childs education. The teachers are readily available and truly care about each and every child. The principal and her staff are awesome, willing to work with you on anything and you never feel like you are bothering them. VERY cheerful. It's ALL for the kids!!
