I am a former student at sks. THIS SCHOOL DOES NOT PREPARE YOU FOR HIGH SCHOOL AT ALL!! They say that they do but no they just simply dont. While i personally was not bullied i know many who were. When the kids told the teacher nothing would happen. Then, when they went to the principal nothing would happen. They had to deal with the bullies for the rest of their time there. Dont get me wrong there were some really good teachers that i loved. The curiculm (sorry if i marracred the word) is based upon the lowest learning person. So if somebody in your class just doesnt want to learn (and there were alot), then you are held back by that person. Most kids go to Ryan, Judge, or Huberts. Then many others go to charter schools. There might be that one kid in a class who goes to the prep school. In conclusion, i disliked my time at sks and now looking back it was pretty bad overall. I hope this review helps you.

My rating speaks for itself. Be mindful of where you send your children. Research. This school is NOT for every child.

Okay first of all I absolutely love my school! I'm in 7th grade and I am very sad that next year will ba my last year here at Sks! The teachers here are very kind and teach well. If you don't understand something just ask a teacher and they will try o explain it to you so that you do understand! I love my school and reccomend it to you for your child we recently opened a pre k program and next year we will add a pre k 3 year old program! So the grades will range from pre-k 3-8th grade! I hope you found this helpfull!

I have two children in this school- this year has been awful. Both children (different grades) have been bullied. Told the teachers- they did nothing. If your children are different in any way they will be picked on. Creativity is not encouraged. It's sad.

I use to be at a public school till 2nd grade then my parents transferred me to Saint Katherine's I couldn't be happier! The teachers are extremely nice but it's cold in the winter and EXTREMELY hot in the summer in the classrooms. I just think that the school should work on air conditioning. Overall, the students are nice and the teachers are very helpful. This is my last year at Saint Katherine's. I love how all the 7th and 8th grade teachers help us prepare for high school like retreats, visitors, and more! I will be missing all the wonderful teachers and friends. But it will prepare you for your future. I would EXTREMELY recommend the school for all young boys and girls.

SKS School is genuinely focused on Christianity, academics, home-and-school, CYO sports, and community activities. I hope it lasts forever!

I have to write and say I am very pleased with the level of education at SKS. My daughter recently completed 6th grade and wanted to thank the teachers and staff for another wonderful year. Thank You

I love St. Katherine of Siena - my daughter is going into third grade and loves to go to school. The teachers are great and very helpful and the C.A.R.E.S. program is amazing, the people really care about your child and have so many activities for them. Ms. Dube'
