I am a student at saint eugene school. Saint eugene is a very small school, yet I feel so very comfortable here. Without the way that the teachers teach and their kind way of letting the students know that they're just like family, my life wouldn't be changed. I am so lucky to be in saint eugene!

St Eugene's is a very small Catholic grade school struggling in today's economy. Despite limited funds and a very tight budget, they provide top notch education in addition to teaching important Christian values. St Eugene's staff works tirelessly to make sure each and every student is taught problem solving and social skills that they will need to solve real world issues in the future. St Eugene's students' tuition is partially funded through the support of the parish and it is this sense of community investment in the future of the children that makes St Eugene's so special.

St. Eugene's school and church will always be home to us. My son, my husband and I were all fortunate enough to attend. We made a tough decision to move 2 years ago and leaving St Eugene's parish is one of our biggest regrets. It is a wonderful school and community. We miss it so much!

For such a small school, they have state of the art technology. The Catholic ideals are present always, but they're preparing the kids for the future. We love it.

There is a committment by the Pastor, Administrators, Teachers, Parents and children to create a positive learning experience for the children who attend St. Eugene's School. You can feel it when you come on to the campus.

Saint Eugene is a small community school where everyone knows everybody, it feels like family. All of my children attended St. Eguenes K-8 and even though we have moved out of the area it remains our parish.

I love St. Eugene School because I feel the pastor,principal and faculty are dedicated to the mission of teaching in a Catholic setting to offer all students educational advantages at every level. For thirteen years I helped to form the faith life of the children. St. Eugene's has a very positive influence of children, families and the larger community. Thank you!

I went to St. Eugene's from K to 8th grade. It was always such a freindly environment. My mom, aunt, and sister all went to St. Euegene's as well and they all as near and dear to their hearts as much as me. Coming out of this elementary school I have made life long friends that will be with me untill the end.

St. Eugene is a great school. I love the fact that it is a small school. The teachers and the principal are great. We started here in the sixth grade and he graduated in 2005. His sister came here in kindergarten and now she is in the first grade. I only wish that my son had the opportunity to start here from the beginning. We are from another parish, but we changed to this parish, because it has that same feeling I had when I was a little girl in Catholic school. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

Most of the students attending are from other districts because the elementary school for this district is a good one. That alone is a sign of the dedication of parents who choose St. Eugene for their children. I love that it is a small school (1 class per grade) becasue everyone knows each other. The teachers are mixed with new and older teachers. The technology resources, both separate from the regular classroom and those incorporated into regular lessons are excellent. Many of the extra activities are not available to students until they are in the 3rd grade, including the choir which excells beautifully at the hands of one of the students' parents (a very dedicated member of the church).

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
