Our family loves St. Matthew School. It is a warm and inviting community where our children are getting a great parochial school education. The class sizes are small. We know each of our children's classmates as well as the parents. We have been very pleased with each of the teachers. We moved here a few years ago and feel we made the right decision in choosing this school. We would highly recommend the school to other families.

We have been very happy with sending our daughter to St. Matthew. This is her second year here and we absolutely love her PK teacher, Mrs. White. I love the fact that this is a small school, where everyone knows my child's name. It is worth paying for private school, knowing your child is safe and well educated.

Dedicated professionals who care about the educational, spiritual and overall development of each student. You would be hard pressed to find a school that cares more about their students.

So far so good! My son is in pre-school and we absolutely love it! He has learned so much already and is already doing more than most of the kids we know at other schools who are in first grade! Love his teacher Mrs. White, she is the perfect match for pre-k students, she's got great energy and seems to really love the kids as if they were her own! I am really looking forward to my child's future at St. Matthew!

This place is awesome! The teachers and administration are always responsive to any concerns we may have...which are very few. My children have been enrolled since first grade and we could not have picked a better school! I highly recommend St. Matt's.

St. Matthew's is easily the best school in Bellevue. Nebraska schools are good, but as a family that moves a lot I send my children to Catholic schools because I can guarantee a solid educational standard. The classes are a lot smaller than the public schools and the curriculum is leagues ahead in terms of level and professionalism.

Love St. Matthew School! Your child will receive an awesome education in a very warm family like environment. For the past 10 years, every 8th grade class has had a scholarship winners. These scholarships are given by various Catholic High Schools and awarded based on the placement test results. It is a proven fact that your child will be prepared for high school after attending St. Matthew. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a small school that's BIG on education!

We moved to the area in October 2014 and my boys were welcomed very warmly by their teachers and classmates. The school secretaries went out of their way to give us a thorough tour of the school. The parish priest is exceptional and gives very wonderful and inspirational homilies. Overall, we are very happy with our experience at St. Matthew School!

St. Matthew School is an excellent school with a unbeatable teaching staff. If you want your child to be prepared for high school academically, socially and spiritually, choose St. Matthews. Built by Offutt, for Offutt and Bellevue families!!!

Wonderful school! Our kids are so happy here. The teachers are amazing and the rest of the staff are friendly and caring. The cirriculum is tough and the kids have to work for it, but if you want your kids to have the best education around, this is the school you want! Great before and aftercare program. They also have a wonderful basketball program. Small student to teacher ratio, so your child will always get the attention they deserve!

We moved to the Omaha area from Southern California in Dec. 2013. My son started Kindergarten Aug. 2014 and we couldn't be happier with this school! We never enrolled him in pre-school so we were concerned about his transition from daycare to the classroom. It's just over the halfway point in the school year and my son is writing sentences, identifying patterns and learning Spanish! The tuition is more than reasonable, the class sizes are small and my child is thriving. His teacher does a wonderful job integrating religion into her lessons which helps with our wishes to raise our children with a strong religious base. Our daughter will be starting this year and we know she'll have a great experience. While it was hard to leave our friends and family in California, the quality education that our child is getting here makes the move all worth it.

Buyer beware. I do not recommend this school. Very disappointed in the school administration, lack of discipline, and clique mentality. Bullying is prevalent and there seems to be little desire to address the problem let alone solve it. Academics are spotty. Some teachers are very good while some have no business being in a classroom.

St. Matthew School is a small school with a lot of heart! Caring teachers and staff, along with a strong faith-based curriculum, help to make the school a perfect place for our children. We appreciate the support that the teachers offer to the kids, as well as the extra care they take with the students' individual needs. Located in a town with an active Air Force base, we are used to new students and families at the school. In turn, the students have the opportunity to welcome and make new friends often. We feel blessed for our family to be a part of St. Matthew School. The education that is being provided to our children is priceless!

St. Matthew School is the best hidden secret in the Omaha-Metro Area/Bellevue. St. Matthew School is growing leaders in the community, one student at a time! If you are looking for a school that balances academics, faith, leadership, and community - you found it!!!! - Parent of a sixth grader (been at St. Matthew School since Kindergarten)

St. Matthew school is a small, very welcoming community. We have been at St. Matthew for 7 years and have had a very positive experience. The teachers are very dedicated; they conduct clubs outside of schools hours for students and both of our son's teachers have attended one of their basketball games outside of school hours. There are lots of activities put on by the PTO that help people to get to know one another. It is quite comforting that I have met every parent/student in my children's classes and know most of them quite well. St. Matthew Is a GREAT school!

We moved to the area 3 years ago and feel blessed to have found St. Matthew's. Small class size and strong academics was important to our family so our child could receive true individualized attention and not get lost in the shuffle. Teachers, and staff truly care about the students. Communication between parents, teachers and administrators has improved significantly over the last year, and we feel we are an integral part of the St. Matthew community. This school is a hidden gem of Bellevue!

St. Matthew School offers an excellent academic environment while also instiliing Christ centered values in the children it serves. The teachers are great and the parent involvement is second to none. As a parent, you can't make a better choice for your kids than St. Matts.

Both my kids attended and graduated from this school. I couldn't have asked for a better academic program. Both of them are succeeding in tough college prep programs in high school. They both entered high school well ahead of their peers. Bellevue has some good public schools, but the quality of the academic program, the parental involvement, the standards of behavior, and the Christ-centered education all add up to a superior academic environment.

Awsome school. One of the best things we did is send our children to St. Matthews. We have recently moved out of the area and greatly miss our old school and parish.

I love this school and so does my child. I am very upset that I am moving out of state and have to take my child out of the school. I hope that the next place I move has a school 1/2 as good as St. Matthew's.

St. Matthew's is an excellent school. My boys are receiving an outstanding education. The children are well behaved, which enables the teachers to spend time teaching not dealing with discipline problems. The entire St. Matthew Community is committed to the children and their future. My boys love school. I have the peace of mind knowing they are in a safe, caring environment all day.

This is the only Catholic School in the area that is accredited by the North Central Association. The academic program is excellent. It's a small school with dedicated teaching staff and a strong Catholic foundation. Bellevue public schools are great, but if you want a Catholic education, St Matthew is the place to send your children.
