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.
Outstanding Academics, Excellent development of Curriculum at all levels, Outstanding 3 pronged Math Curriculum, Differentiated Instruction at all levels, Exceptional Intervention help for students who need assistance in and out of the classroom, Dominican Catholic Tradition and spiritual development.
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.
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.
St. Gertrude instructs students from Kindergarten on through the Eighth Grade on how to implement the Golden Rule into their lives. Their virtue based curriculum reinforces the importance of honestly, integrity and fairness in its students.
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.
