I love this school! The classrooms are smaller than most and the attention the teachers give my kiddos are amazing! The environment is a community of people who truly want to help each other! My son could not have had a better experience in Kinder - Mrs. Patty Moothart is the best teacher for that age group! So happy with our decision, my daughter is now counting down the days until she gets to start in August.

School gossip is like no other at this school. As me and my husband laugh at the fact of we have nothing to do with the school outside its community. Nothing against the community, as we have met some really great people there but, we get phone calls that we are pulling our kids out and sending them to another school. Totally hilarious we think. Nothing but bored wives with nothing better to do. I suggest, Get a job ! Apparently they are so bored they look for drama. Probably the same people that just have to stop and look over the median to see the car wreck where there is nothing they can do but stop traffic. The biggest problem is the moms that work there. These are the leaders that cannot get a handle on the situation; instead of ending it, the phone calls we get consist of them and their two cents worth. To all parents considering this school if you can put up with gossip and just laugh it has a great education system, however you have to ask yourself, Is this a positive environment for your children ?

All Saints Catholic School has been such a wonderful blessing to our family. I have 3 children there and just today on the way home my 10 year old son told me his "biggest hero was Jesus Christ, because he died to save us from sin." I grew up in Catholic Schools and we teach the faith at home and go to church on the weekends, but for him to be hearing that at school and feeling comfortable saying it is beyond what we can do at home. Being that it is Easter week I have been reminded daily of how wonderful that my children spend all day in a school where they are encouraged to believe in heroes such as Jesus Christ, not the multitude of other "so-called" heroes that our children are inevitably exposed to. All week I have been hearing about the tridium, stations of the cross, Easter vigil, and more, it is so refreshing. I feel so at ease every morning when I drop off my children knowing they are so well loved and taught by such a wonderful faculty, surrounded by good friends and Catholic values and academically challenged. What more could I ask for?

This is one of the school, a Catholic School where everybody IS NOT afraid to speak up and voice their opinion if they feel they need to do it and whenever we do it, we always (read it again: always) get an HONEST response and the TRUTH. Although this is a Catholic School, but it also opens its door for another student who has different religion so this is one of the place where my kids learn not only academics but also religion about the true meaning of become a Catholic and how to build beautiful relationship among others without "being afraid of offending others" (if you know what I mean). I have two kids here (the third one will join in two years) and I can tell you that so far I am very satisfied with this school. This school is not perfect, they just keep striving to and they always have good intention to seek nothing but the TRUTH and the best of all, they are consistent with the true identity and meaning of being a Catholic School. There is no personal agenda here. If you want your kids to have what is the true meaning of a Catholic School, this is one of the places that you should highly consider of.

My child has been at the school from kinder to 8th grade. He has been excepted to every high school he applied to. We love All Saints Catholic School. From the secretary in the office to all the staff. They have an open door policy. The teachers are wonderful. All Saints is our 2nd family.

When looking for an elementary school, consider which will build a foundation for your child. ASCS offers an intimate environment where your child will be recognized by teachers and staff, and they will truly help your child discover what will make him/her successful in high school, and beyond!

All Saints has been an extension of our family for years. I know my children are challenged academically and loved. The school provides reinforcement for the moral compass I want my children to have. They have a fabulous orchestra and band! The new pastor is very supportive of the school. I love the direction this school is headed.

Very sorry to see this below post. I would hope whomever wrote it has taken advantage of the open door policy described in other posts to voice his/her concerns. I'm pretty sure this is a free website....free in the sense that everyone is entitled to write their opinions and free in the sense that the schools do not pay for it. We couldn't be happier at ASCS. It is our community and family.

Very noticeable what this school does when it comes to reviews. If there is a concern about a review it is paid to be removed. As I have seen reviews posted with concerns about the school then within the next few days if not the next is has been deleted. Parents if you love your children do not use this sight, if by any means possible talk with some of the parents if you can seek them out. What I have found is that there is a running question at school events, birthday parties, whatever. What do you think of the school ? Trust me it is not a positively asked.

We have been extremely grateful that we found All Saints for our child's catholic education. We have been at ASCS for 5 years. From day 1, we were welcomed into a loving, Christian community. I see my child's friends and their parents as extended family and I am beyond grateful for them. The academics have far exceeded my expectations. My child is constantly challenged and the bar is set high. We love the values that are woven throughout each day and instilled in our children. They pray for sick friends and family together. They come together as a group and create service oriented projects for those in need. They play team sports together. There are also many opportunities to come together as a school family to gather and socialize. After hearing from admissions directors from some of the catholic high schools in the area, I feel that my child will be more than prepared to attend a Catholic high school due to the outstanding education she is receiving at All Saints.

We have been at All Saints from Kindergarten through Middle School and have had a wonderful experience! It is an extremely supportive community with a dedicated, caring principal at the top, wonderful teachers and administration, warm families and great students. I love that my child is in an environment where faith and academics come together. I've seen the turnover as positive with a constant focus on academic excellence and an overall well-rounded experience. I am so thankful that my child is able to be a part of this wonderful school!

My daughter has been a student at All Saints from Kinder through middle school. I have been very happy with her growing in faith and her academic education No school is perfect. But at All Saints, it's close. We are members of a close knit community. The teachers and administrative staff truly care about every student. The families and parents are part of the community. I know my daughter is receiving every benefit and has the best opportunities to succeed. I give my highest recommendation to All Saints Catholic School.

I am thankful that we have found such a wonderful Middle school for our daughter. The teachers and administration have made us feel welcomed and care about if my daughter is doing well or not. Compared to another Catholic School we were at in Plano, the teachers and administration here are kind to the kids and respect them. The parents are also very friendly and have been welcoming as well. Academics are very strong and challenging. My daughter will be ready for High School in 3 years.

We are very pleased with the school--administration, teachers, and other parents. Our child has had a wonderful experience this year. The principal makes you feel heard as a parent and the new AP stepping up for next school year will be the right piece to the puzzle. Overall, very pleased, and looking forward to next school year already!

We have been at All Saints for the last 5 years and our boys couldn't be happier. The class sizescare perfect and the teachers are excellent. We have been blessed with some of the best. The Principal truly cares about the school and the students. She has made great changes! If you are looking for a great Catholic education for your money, look bno further.

Our family has been in the school through 3 principals and it just keps getting worse. My kids have both said it feels like they are in a prison this year with the very strict rules. The current principal has brought in several teachers that she has previously worked with and they have a strong loyalty to each other. She will stand behind those teachers to the detriment of the students. Other teachers that have been there for years get publicly criticized. There are many reasons I used to love this school, but the negative outweighs the positive.

I just toured this school yesterday for my son who will be starting Kindergarten next year. I have to say I don't see any of the things these reviews are stating. I am so impressed with this school and thrilled that as a single Mother it is affordable to send my son to a school of this stature. The facilities are new and clean. There are short term and long term plans for fields. The teachers seem involved and they have thought of everything from gifted teachers to special education teachers. They seem to believe in leaving no child behind . This school is concentrating on developing my child spiritually and intellectually. Every class I looked in was beautifully maintained and the children were engaged. Even the children in the lunchroom were orderly! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to send my son to this school. I will be happy knowing he will be in a safe and disciplined environment with small classes where he will get the attention and nurturing he deserves.
