  • The teachers and staff were all great, everybody knew my son's name. They did a great job integrating him socially. My only complaints are: 1) no science program in 1st grade - yet they find the time to teach religion daily, and 2) not a whole lot of resources for someone who is more academically advanced than the rest of the class. If you are Catholic, the tuition is the cheapest in the Chatt area; if you aren't, the tuition is about the same as most other schools. All in all, it's the best bang for your buck you can get if you can't live with the Hamilton Co. public schools anymore.
