My sons have gone to this school since 4K, one is in 7th grade now and the other is in 5K. We love the teachers, principal and families at this school. The small class room size is such a benefit and the kids get a lot of one-on-one work. Even though it is small they have all the extras with art, music, physical education and even theater classes. St. Bruno is truly a family/community school.

St Bruno Parish School is, by far, the best school in the area. We are so proud to send our kids here-- the staff is amazing, the encouraging, loving, environment is second to none. I love the feeling of family with the school families and teachers. We are very, very fortunate to have such a school that is so affordable in our area.

St. Bruno Parish School in Dousman is a very special and unique school. The teachers truly care about the success of each and every child and will go out of their way help their students. Our children learn respect, responsibility, care, compassion and faith. There is no other school in the area that comes close or compares to what you get out of St. Bruno. There is a sense of family and community that you can't find in other schools. Take a tour and see and feel it for yourself.

What a blessing this school has been for my children. The staff is exceptional and the amount of parent involvement is outstanding. It is one of the main reasons we moved to the Dousman area.

Our children love St. Bruno's. The teacher's and staff are excellent role models. We love being able to have a casual conversations about their day and the teachers know them so well. They are pushed to their academic best and are always given opportunities to grow in a loving and supportive environment. We have the best principal and she knows the children so well. The best decision we ever made was choosing St. Bruno's.

St. Bruno Parish School has been a wonderful place for our children to develop academically, spiritually and socially. There are many reasons we send the kids to St. Bruno, not the least of which is the amount of energy each teacher puts into her or his class instruction. The kids have leadership opportunities, regular community service opportunities, interaction among older and younger grades (great role-modeling), and loving, nurturing faculty and staff. We love it here!

St. Bruno Parish School is a Catholic School in every nature. The teachers care and give everything they can to the students. The principal is a great leader and communicates effectively to all members of the community. We encourage everyone in the Dousman area to consider St. Bruno Parish School.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
