My son has been attending SES since Kindergarten, he is now in the 7th grade. He has the largest class in the school, and the closest. These kids and staff are truly like family, and we are already dreading when he graduates next year. I can not express how important, that in his development from a child to a teen this school has been. I see every day how the love and guidance given to him through his peers and teachers has molded him into the young man he is today. Not only has he, but also my husband and myself have made life long friends here. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for more than just the standard education.

Wish we were aware of this school years ago. What an amazing community of educators that care deeply about their students personally and educationally. The expectations of the students are great but it is enveloped with care, love and concern. They demand success in each and every student and in turn the students respect their teachers, themselves and their peers as they achieve their personal successes.

We are a new St. Elizabeth family..having only enrolled our two oldest children this past September. They are in their middle school years, however I can say with all honesty I wish we had discovered this school sooner! You will not find a more pleasant, safe, and morally sound school environment around. The smaller class sizes means every teacher, the principal and office staff not only know your child on a first name basis, but care deeply for their well being; educationally, emotionally and socially. My daughter's know it's a priveledge to go to St. Elizabeth's and as family we sacrifice and make the commitment together....which makes them more accountable and responsible for their studies. As a Roman Catholic school, their days are also filled with Christ centered teachings and an emphasis on servitude...making their formation about the student as a whole. It is wonderful!

Very disappointed in this school. The school does not embrace technology. In today s day and age, this is something that the school should embrace. The school is very out dated. There is very little classroom discipline. Kids are often out of their seats and roaming around the classroom. Very little access to teachers as they are out the door the second the bell rings. It often takes 2-3 days for the teacher to respond to issues big and small. There is very little sense of community. We as a family were very involved in the classroom and school. The principle is very set in ways and not open to new suggestions. As a family we were very disappointed in our experience at this school. Our goal was to provide our children with a Catholic Education., however this school is lacking in many ways and it is very sad to see.

An absolutely fabulous school! I cant say enough about the amazing teachers and principle. The time and support they have provided my children over the past two years is not something a public school can match. I am thankful for the quiet, peaceful learning environment St Elizabeth provides my children with on a daily basis.

Small student to teacher ratio. Teachers get to know the students and provide personal attention. My children are being challenged, which was an issue in the public school. Love it here!

Most imporessed with the 'community' feel of the school. Everyone works together for the common cause, education of Catholic Youth.

My son just finished Kindergarten at SES. We are so pleased with the education and fundamentals he has learned in just one year. The teachers are so caring and want so much for the children to succeed. When choosing a school, consider a school that teaches children not only about english and math, but about how to respect and love eachother. The world will be a much better place if our children get the kind of start that SES has to offer.

We chose SES for our two boys, not only for the superior academics, devoted teachers and faith developement, but also the feeling of student camraderie SES promote. Whether its with academics or athletics, I always see the older, smarter or more experienced kids supporting and helping the younger, newer ones. A rarity in educational institutions today!

I send my two children to St. Elizabeth and I am very pleased. When I first went to visit the school, I was amazed at how quiet the overall atmosphere was in the hallways, and walking into some of the classrooms, the students and teachers were engaged in their work. The academic expectations and structure in the classrooms are definately important to me, but it's the overall feeling of caring between the teachers and students that really make me feel like my children are in the most productive environment they can be in. They offer before and after school care which is so convenient to my schedule. I know that I truly appreciate all this school has had to offer my children.

I just enrolled my third child in St. Elizabeth Seton School. The outstanding principal and teachers make this school worth every penny. The student population is small, but excels in the community in academics, community competitions such as the Christmas parade float and other contests and sports. I am thrilled with the superior education that integrates the traditions and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. I feel my children are in a very safe environment that develops the whole person. I can't recommend it enough.

Our child attended the kindergarten program. We were HIGHLY disappointment in the program and the teacher. We found that they devoted more time in crafts than reading and other areas of education. We also found the teacher to be very unapproachable and unfriendly.

I love this school! My kids enjoy it a lot. There are arguably the best teachers in the state there: Mrs. Sellinger and Mr. Wendell. Also the basketball teams have won the championship for the past 10 years!

This is an excellent school, where all the teachers get to know your child on a first name basis. We have been very happy sending our 2 children there.
