Excellent & challenging academics, superb teaching staff, wonderful community for students/parents. Many opportunities abound within the school from sports, clubs, enrichment programs and more. Monthly school masses, morning prayer with pledge of allegiance and many more forgone education rituals that are so important in American education. Each student is worked to their fullest potential and the very best is demanded from each and every student. There are 3 pillars of core values which are Faith, Wisdom and Knowledge- which is steeped in each clover of the shamrock. Saint Patrick's is a seacoast gem!!

Fourth grade is understaffed, probably underpaid, and frazzled with too many students. The teacher sent out an email to all parents telling them to teach their students to behave in class. Clearly the teacher is overwhelmed. Parents are discouraged from helping, and there are no classroom aides.

This is the best school in the seacoast area! The teachers are the very best & very caring! The principal is the best the school has had since Sr. Carol in the 1990s. If you are looking for quality education and a place for your child to grow, this is the place to be!!

The teachers, staff and families truly care about one another and how to educate and prepare our kids for a future of faith, love and kindness. Go St. Pats!

St. Pat's is a great school. Solid academic program, positive social environment and a wonderful community of parents, teachers, staff and students. If you are looking for a school with challenging academics and high expectations for behavior -- you'll be very happy here. We are!

Words cannot express how wonderful we believe St. Pat's School to be. Both the Teachers and the Principal first concern is the students. They are all very supportive, caring and willing to expand their scope of thinking to support a child's learning and well-being. We have a child with a chronic illness and we have found everyone at St. Pat's willing to bend over backwards to learn, communicate and embrace our daughter's medical condition. She loves it at school and is happier than ever. We are truly grateful to have found St. Pat's School, the Principal's leadership and their wonderful teaching staff. All the parents are very welcoming of newcomers and create a warm-welcoming environment. Many thanks to all the great staff members and families who make St. Pat's the great school it is today.

We have found St. Pat's to be an excellent school. The kids are challenged and expectations are high, but its done in a supportive, caring environment. It's also wonderful to know that the values we are trying to teach at home are being reinforced at school.

Morality based education, volunteering to help those in need, freedom to be children with positive peer pressure, community/family type feeling on a catholic foundation - common decency in how to treat people - my kids are happy and so are we.
