St. Gertrude helped my current high school freshman be the best version of herself! Not only did St. Gertrude give my daughter a strong Catholic foundation, but they more than prepared her for high school. The teachers had a genuine interest in helping her succeed. Moreover, the community of families at St. Gertrude were so welcoming and supportive the entire time I was there.
I cannot think of a better school or community for my 3 children to be educated in! The strong academics balanced with a great sports program and a faith filled environment makes me know that they will be prepared for a challenging high school experience above and beyond what their peers receive from other private schools in the region.
Each student is educated individually meeting all their needs by the whole school community no matter what the subject or issue is. Honesty, Integrity, and fairness is modeled by all teachers and staff in a loving environment.
St. Gertrude continues their strong history of nurturing students & families while providing an excellent education. There is a dynamic celebration of faith that infuses the school year with unique opportunities for the children to learn & grow. Area high schools have great respect for the school & it's not uncommon for academically gifted SGS grads to receive competitive academic scholarships to area Catholic high schools. It has such a strong reputation that families often move Back to this area in order to send their children to SGS. I encourage all families (esp. those with multiple children in different grades) to visit & start the application process early to avoid to potential of being placed on a waiting list. My parents sent their 6 children to SGS, I moved back to Cincinnati to be one of their 3 children to send 8 of their grandchildren to SGS & next fall, their 2nd great grandchild with start in the kindergarten.
Faith, Virtue, Reverence, Humility, Academics, Sports - St. Gertrude has it all. We will have four kids attending St. Gertrude next year, and I would not consider any other school in the region. Our Principal, Sr. Mary Aquinas, is teaching my Children's religion classes - what an incredible opportunity to learn from someone who has devoted their life to Jesus. INCREDIBLE! We love St. Gertrude School.
