The school is a wonderful place for the children to grow in a safe and responsible enviorment. The teachers are wonderful. My biggest concern with the school is the lack of enrichment to children in k-2 who are able to be challenged. When compared to schools in other towns, there is a great difference in the level of work provided to the children. Back to the good, the PTO is so wonderful. They go above and beyond to provide amazing experiences for the children. They support outstanding school productions and drive a lot of memorable evetns (daddy n daughter dance, mother n son dance. The art teacher is unbelievable. Mr. Huegin, the principal really cares about each student and the way the schools operates. My kids LOVE the school.

My oldest son just finished Kindergarten and we could not be happier with his experience at Catena. He had the most amazing, caring teachers who I could tell pour their heart and soul into their job. The school community is warm and welcoming. Wow what a school!

This school is outstanding. The principal treats each child as if they were his own, and the kids love him. The teachers are of high quality and present an outstanding program. Parents are very involved, and it is very much a community environment in the school.

Both of my children went through this school from K to 5th grade, and I don't think they could have gotten a better education anywhere. The teachers, principal, and staff are dedicated and caring. There is great emphasis on the Catena school 'family' and treating one another with kindness and respect. Children are rewarded for their good behaviour, and there is little problem with bullying due to this approach. My children, who are now in high school and middle school, still enjoy returning to visit their old teachers and walking the halls of their beloved elementary school.

Although the Principal in this school is phenominal, the district itself is not very accepting or very welcoming to single parents. There is much more focus and attention place on a two-parent home.
