  • This school is a well-rounded school. The teachers show discipline to their students and their students respect each other. This school is perfect for any kid.

  • I currently have one child in St.Sylvester School. The school is fine but for the kids I would have to say that they are kind of disrespectful in some way. The teachers give many punishments and they tell the students to shut up many times. The students curse and they disrespect other children. If you bring your child to that school beware of the consequences.

  • I have 4 children (Kinder,1st,5th,and 7th) and 1 niece (Pre K3) in St Sylvester School. The school is like a family. The Staff and Teachers are fantastic. They have alot of extra-curricular activites. They Pre K 3 year old and Pre K 4 year olds learn the same subjects as the upper grades. They have play time in the new play room that is filled with educational toys where the children can use their imagination. Their is no race or religious barriers with the children. This is really a great place to be a child. They include ALL the children in school shows and no one is excluded from any club or activity. I feel the teachers are fantastic because they not only teach but they care. I know my children are safe, they are learning and they have great role models. I invite everyone to visit the school and see for yourself.
