We are very pleased with the education our children are receiving at All Saints. The education is top notch and the teachers are very committed. Our children are happy at All Saints because the kids are very respectful of one another and we are pleased with the family oriented environment the school offers.
We started with All Saints pre school program and just loved it. They have so many options now for the 2012-2013 school year... all day Kindergarten and pre school. We love the indivualized attention for the students and the opportunities available to be involved with classroom activities and school functions. It really is like family!
I have had a total of three children at All Saints (two have moved on to secondary schools). All started at the PreK level. All Saints is like a big extended, caring family - I cried when my older two moved on to the next level of education! My childrens' academic and social skills are all vastly different from each other and All Saints helped them build their strengths and improve their weaknesses. For a small school with scaled back staffing (thanks to state funding cuts), they still provide excellent curriculum. My son who left last year was placed into advanced math and advanced english. I have to admit a couple of the teachers are hard and at times I wished they would retire, but obviously they know what they are doing as my son has demonstrated!
All Saints used to be a great school, but recently it has seen a lot of teacher turnover. My son has had a new teacher every year. This last year we had major problems with his teacher and his test scores plummeted. We met with the teacher and administration several times without a clear plan from them. After a horrible year, and the prospect of another new teacher this year, we decided to pull him out. Think twice about All Saints and ask pointed questions about turnover and how they mentor new teachers.
We are a school filled with dedicated and caring teachers. Everyone is welcomed, to a great environment of learning and faith. It is wonderful to have the Principal greeting all students at the doors every morning, giving hugs to all that want them, even the parents!
