My four children have all graduated from St Gertrude with open hearts and strong moral values. And, yes, additionally, they were academically prepared to excel in high school (St X and Ursuline). I am very proud to have chosen St Gertrude for my most precious children!

Although there are many good public school choices surrounding SGS, as a gradute of SGS I can't imagine sending my children anywhere else. SGS has a long tradition of strong catholic faith formation, superior academics, and offers many activities including; sports, chior, music, theatre, and the school has its own chapel! SGS is an amzing place with dedicated teachers and supportive parents. If you are looking for an environnment to prepare your children to be successful in the class room and in their spiritual journey there is no better place than SGS.

I would like to Thank Sr. Mary Aquinas for her Academic and Spiritual Leadership at St. Gertrude School. We are blessed beyond measure to have such a dynamic leader in both of these arenas. Sr. Mary Aquinas you are a daily blessing in our lives!

St. Gertrude only hires the Best and the Brightest teachers who possess the ability to motivate all students to work to their fullest potential. I love the smaller classes knowing that my children are given a lot of one on one assistance in their classes.

Amount of homework: Just right

St. Gertrude teachers work hard to determine a fair but meaningful amount of homework for each grade level. This amount of work keeps students engaged and reinforces the lessons that were learned throughout the course of the day. St. Gertrude teachers are always available for help with any homework issues.

Absolutely! St. Gertrude's works with each student and develops their talents, and helps them through their struggles. St. Gertrude's teaches the students that each of their struggles is truly a gift from God. Each struggle makes them work harder to develop the particular skill. These struggles teach persistence, grit and determination in every student.

Students are taught that all of us are created by God. We all have worth and therefore need to be given respect. Respect is one of the many virtues taught within the Virtue Curriculum.

Students are encouraged to share with each other and to learn compassion, caring and empathy for others by participating in Make a Difference Day, food drives, and present collection (Christmas). Students are taught how to share their gifts with others.
