We currently have a third grader and a second grader at St Anne's. Into our fourth year at this school, I can honestly say that we feel incredibly blessed to have found it.
We were new to Colorado when I needed to begin looking at elementary schools. I started with Internet reviews. That is why I felt it was important to add my own.
This school has an incredible sense of community, as well as strong academics and a religious program. To address the negative reviews regarding St Anne's- first of all, my mother taught at Catholic school for 30 years and always held evaluations prior to a student starting school. These evaluations test the readiness of a child, and I have NEVER seen any discriminatory practices at this school.
Second, the academics are excellent. The teacher to student ratio (along with dedicated teacher assistants in each grade and parent volunteers) is small and offers attention to each individual. Several of our eight graders receive scholarships to Catholic high schools. And we consistently win or place in spelling bees (up to state), math competitions, and competitive chess.
If you are considering this school for your child's education, I encourage you to take a tour.
