I have been sending my 3 children here for about 11 years. this school has gone down hill since Mr Mazzella retired as principle, he was a caring & helpful principle. Mrs fiche is a horrible principle, she is uncaring to parents as well as children. this school only cares about money & not the education of children. I finally pulled my child out of this school & put him in PS 11, it was the best decision I ever made, wish I did it sooner. He is now getting a great education from a staff that is caring to everyone in this school.

Simply stating that there needs to be much change in this school. Starting with the principle. They are very unorganized especially with parent communications on trips, events and discipline. When it comes to asking for money or funds for the school there quick to ask for it but don't make any changes to benefit the school or it's environment. We're us all the money there raising going? Even though there a small school were everyone knows one another they have big problems especially academically. These children need to be prepared for there future. This is not there main focus. Change is needed especially with the change of times

I attended Saint Ann's from 1st grade until 8th grade when I graduated in 1962. It was a really good school for learning. I made many good friends that I am always wondering about how they are and what they are doing today. We had a great Basketball team back then!

A small tight knit 'community', Saint Ann School is like a family. My son received a great education here.

Saint Ann's is a very special school, it is a small school, excellent teachers, our new Principal is wonderful, and a caring person. Mrs. Daly and Mrs. Berardi are the best. My children love the school and so do I.

My sisters and I all attended St. Ann's and so did our children at some point. It's a small school and very family oriented. The teachers and staff were the best and some of them are still there. You can always stop there for an event and see somone you went to school with. It's a great feeling and many wonderful memories were made there.
