I am a parent of this school as well as married to an alumnus. St. Anne truly creates a family environment where the teachers are completely invested in their students. I would recommend this school to anyone. And I have!
St. Anne has been a blessing for our family. Our 3 daughters attended for 5 years and would still be there if we did not move out-of-state. The principal is committed, attentive and always seeking to ensure a quality Catholic / Academic education. The teachers are committed, caring and encourage each student to achieve their personal best. The library and AR program are excellent; reading is practically a sport at this school! The music dept. is wonderful too. Abundant extracurricular activities and sports for students. The environment is safe, nuturing yet disciplined. Academically it is a STRONG school; ITBS scores are solid. Having a resource teacher on staff is a plus. Our daughters thrived at this school. St. Anne is my benchmark as I look for a new school for our girls. I was an active parent and I highly recommend St. Anne. It is a quality well rounded education.
best teachers ever great principle and wonderful staff and well behaved kids st anne school is the place you want to go
The greatest gift you can give a child is a wonderful education!!!! This is what I have found at St. Anne School. I know my child will be more than prepared for any challange that she may encounter in her future.
This is our 6th year at St. Anne School and I can't imagine having my children anywhere else. The principal has made so many positive changes in the last year and I know more are on the way. My children are being challenged academically and nurtured spiritually. It has been a joy to watch my children grow in mind, body and spirit. School are cutting programs so rapidly in today's economy. I am thrilled that St. Anne School has managed to keep every one of their exploratory subjects and extracurricular activities, and add an new Resource Teacher. It speaks volumes about their commitment to the children.
Our daughter has attended Saint Anne Catholic School since 2005. It is an excellent school. The teachers have excellent credentials and many years of experience. They are very caring and committed. The school emphasizes not only education but also building character and strong morals. The school's "Pledge of Respect" is a commitment by all of the students to respect their teachers, their classmates and themselves with proper behavior. The families of the students are also very committed to the school, making this school a true "family" in every sense. We are blessed to have a wonderful principal who is an excellent leader and who is committed to continuing the tradition of excellence that is well-established in our school. We plan to have our child continue to be a part of the St. Anne family until she completes her education there.
We want a faith based, academically challenging, safe environment for our children. We choose St. Anne school because it meets our three requirements. We have been a part of St. Anne for five years and look forward to at least nine more years.
My family has been a part of the St. Anne School community for many years. As a child I attended the school and took with me values that would last a lifetime. These values and lessons I learned stuck with me so much that I want my own children to experience them for themselves. This is why St. Anne Catholic School is the school my children attend today. I have been pleased with the quality of education and the daily faith formation they are receiving from their teachers.
My children have attended St Anne School for eight years although we have gone through some difficult times, the teachers, parents and staff have stayed focused on what truly matters...our children. I am happy to say, we will continue our education here and are proud to say we have been part of this extraordinary school.
The current administration of St. Anne's School is excellent and I believe will continue to move the school forward in progressive ways. As some of the earlier review suggest, St. Anne did experience a bit of difficulty with previous principals who were not a good fit for the school. The current principal began in August 2009 and in just one year had implemented higher standards among the staff and teachers. Additionally, he is crafting a plan to include a resource teacher at St. Anne's who will work with the execeptionally high achieving as well as academically challenged students. The future looks bright for St. Anne's students as all programs in the arts, sports, and phys ed will be continued at a time with the local elementary and middle schools are experiencing cuts to these programs.
St. Annes is an excellent school. The teachers are outstanding and I feel like the curriculum is very appropriate, if not beyond, those taught in public school. The teachers are always very easy to talk with and very assessible. Along with a quality education, they re-emphasize the catholic beliefs and good morals every child is taught from home. I could not imagine my children going anywhere else. I highly recommend this school.
St. Anne School has been an oustanding experience for my children. They have been challenged and have grown in their faith, enjoyed success academically (national testing shows me this) and participated in sports and activities of all kinds. No wonder St. Anne has been around for almost 60 years...
I had contact with this school many years ago and was impressed. So when I decided to send my own child to private school, St Anne's was my first choice. I, however, was terribly disappointed in the current administration that simply avoided any communication when they were questioned about some very important issues. This system has gone through four principals in five years and keeps hiring people that you know aren't there for the long run. I just wonder if this school has lost it's once, prestigious and respected qualities. We withdrew after the first year.
The building and grounds are clean and very well maintained. The academic programs are geared to average students with no alternative curriculums for gifted or challenged students. This explains the excellent test scores, as they do not have the cross section of ability levels found in public schools. There are many opportunities for parent involvement as the school is largely dependent on parents for extracurricular activities and the hot lunch program. The religious component is good, however parents who espouse to the teachings of the church instill those values daily anyway.
We received poor communication from principal and front office staff. The after school care was a free for all.
If you are a parent of a child with any type of special needs, don't send them to St. Anne's. They'll tell you that they can accomodate your child, but in the end they aren't equipped. It was difficult for us to get the principal to request an Individualized Education Plan. We kept getting excuses as to why she couldn't get in touch with the school district. When I called for information about the IEP I got right through, but unfortunately I couldn't make the referral, it had to be done by the principal. Well after 7 weeks at this school we were told that we had to remove our child. He is in public school and doing great!
It's a wonderful school. I love the way they include religous education into everyday school work. I also like the teachers, they seem to really care and love the students.
