Mrs. Murphy Principal has always been very much involved with students, she has taught compassion, community work, and a hands on interest to ensure a GREAT Education for every student. She has always challenged everyone to the "best" of their ability.

My 4 children, and 2 Grandchildren received an excellent education, community outreach, sports, music, compassion, and love for others. They excelled in High School due to the Academics in St, Anselm. My Grandson was in all AP Classes in HS and has gone onto Temple University with an Engineering Major. The Education is really worth the cost. v Buck

Worst school ever. I know several students who go to school there and it is a school with uncreative teachers and a principal who needs to retire. The teachers do nothing but textbook work and forget that that these are small children who need to have fun while learning. I am a retired educator and it breaks my heart to hear stories from parents and children about this school. It's no wonder why the enrollment has dropped so much!

I am a parent who is located in the suburbs of this school, I can't say enough on how welcoming the staff and students have been towards myself and to my 5th grade daughter. She loves the school. Three cheers for all at st.Anslems, the parents, teachers, staff and students. Its no wonder there principal has won a principal award.
