St Anthony Of Padua School5

St. Anthony's has allowed my children to become well-rounded, confident adults. They both graduated top 10 in their high school class and earned scholarships to attend college. Placing my children in St. Anthony's gave them the opportunity to learn and grow in a faith-filled, caring environment, without all the issues our local public schools are facing (behavior wise). The staff continually strives to improve academics--even adding an advanced math program in the last few years. The students have TONS of clubs and afterschool activities to choose from. It is easy to see that the teachers really care about the well being of their students!!
I am very impressed with the education my child is receiving at St. Anthony s. The staff is dedicated both academically and spiritually. The parent volunteer activities bring multi generational supporters creating a family like environment working toward common goals
St. Anthony's School educates the whole person, academic, spiritual and social. Thanks to the work of the faculty at St. Anthony's, my son is successfully completing honors classes in high school. The staff at St. Anthony's give of their personal time to take students on retreats where they can develop spiritually and socially. Student learn to connect with God and with their peers. Under the guidance of Fr. Joseph West, the staff work very hard to create an loving, accepting, forgiving environment for the diverse student body and parents. It it truly a great school, where fidelity to Catholic teaching is upheld along with academic achievement in a caring environment.
I am a student at St. Anthony of Padua since the 4th grade. Now, I will be going into 8th grade this coming school year. I really do love coming to this school. all the teachers are there to help, challenge, and guide you to success. The other students there are very nice, and always willing to help also. It's a really great school, and it's rarely ever boring!
My son has gone to preschool there for 2 years now and he loves it. They have great fund raiser. Due to money issues at home we are unable to send him back in the fall. I'm very upset but I hope that he and his younger brother will be able to return to St. Anthony's for the fall of 2009-10 scholl year.
I have found St. Anthony lacking in academics. There is not enough focus on learning the basics in the early grades of K-1. The PTU is a great organization who does much to raise needed monies for the school for field trips, classroom needs, and general school needs. The amount of parental fundraising is fair.
