  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 25, 2008
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • While our 8th graders move on to their high school of choice, such as Moreau or Bishop O'Dowd, our Kindergarten class is becoming fully aware of the community which they are now a part of. Academically, this school is stellar; children are reading in Kindergarten. Our graduates have gone on to top colleges while continuing to humbly serve their community.

  • The staff always stays in contact with us as parents. We transferred from MI and everyone was helpful. The staff was patient, explaining locations and resources to learning about our new home community.
