  • This school as far as I am concern is so far the best affordable catholic school in Brooklyn.
    From the principal to the rest of the staff they put our children interests first. They want our children to excel and become future leaders.
    I also observed that the school is striving due to the lack of community interests. I am sure and hope in this coming school year we as parents ought to work along side the principal and staff to improve the quality of the curriculum and elevate the school to the status of 5 stars rating.
