Excellent school with a loving and caring administration and faculty. Not a school for everyone but if you are lucky to get in you will receive an strong spiritual and academic education. Love it here.
I feel that the administration has their own agenda and it's not the children. It's all about waiting lists to get in and high test scores. Principal is ineffective in my opinion. Teachers are not held accountable and can do whatever they like with no fear of repercussions. Administration bullying students is a common theme. Child must fit in their box to succeed. What happened to good old fashioned Catholic schools? What a disappointment.
SVdP is a great Catholic School with a small community. We have a strong Catholic identity as well as a good base for academics. We tend to score high in standardized tests and our children get into a top choice high school. Some of the facilities within the school are old, the school is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. But overall, SVdP is a great place to be for pre-K through 8th grade.
Our school is not only wonderful as far as curriculum and preparing our children for high school, but under our principals leadership, the school offers enrichment programs throughout the year to help keep our children aware of the "moral compass". In addition, the school provides parents with resources needed, including a positive parenting series, focusing on timely matters involving family and our children. Our principal truly cares about each and every child, and that genuine love is filtered through her faculty. It is a fantastic community and a special place to be.
St Vincent de Paul School is a Catholic School with grades PreKindergarten -8th grade. Our school is celebrating it's 70th anniversary this year. SVdP has a strong academic curriculum and a wide range of extracurricular activities, athletics, art, and music programs.
St. Vincent DePaul is a great school. We have been very happy there. They definitely have a focus on spiritual growth and their education standards are high. The faculty and staff have been great to work with and parent involvement is high. The school goes the extra mile to addresses issues and challenges. I highly recommend SVdP. You and your children will get out of it, what you put into it - as is the case in most schools.
