St Anthony Catholic School Ratings & Reviews
Great teachers and staff very helpful with my kids we have been here 2 years
My family was involved with St. Anthony School from 2006-2012. Recently we moved out of state where my daughter now attends a fantastic public school. However, there is one component missing here that she, and all the others at St. Anthony, received in abundance: LOVE. St. Anthony School has excellent teachers and a strong principal. The entire staff is dedicated, motivated, professional, and LOVING. I am so thankful my children were able to receive in their early years the strong academic and moral foundation that St. Anthony school provides.
I am a Board member at St. Anthony School. As the school has grown from 34 students 5 years ago to 90 students today, it has evolved beautifully. We have a wonderful Board of Trustees, great families, dedicated teachers, and excellent students who genuinely care about each other. In the past couple of years we have added art, music, p.e., violin, and community service. Our older kids visit rest homes, and collect and distribute food to the needy. This spring, we are building a sports field and an edible schoolyard project in which kids will learn science, horticulture, and economics by taking products to market. Next year we will add a Spanish program. Finally, we will have an ethics class for seventh and eighth graders which will introduce students to beginning concepts of theology and philosophy and will consider the question of how a person ought to live within a moral framework. Our graduates will be well educated, but just as importantly each child's relationship with God will be nurtured. If you are looking for great academics and individual instruction by excellent teachers in a warm, caring atmosphere, this school is for you.
As a grandparent of two students at St. Anthony, I have been very impressed by the quality of the teachers, the curriculum, special programs and activities offered. I am amazed that my grandchildren are learning geometry concepts in first grade and basic algebra in fourth grade. As a retired engineer, with 16 years of math myself, I recognize an excellent math curriculum. The students come from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, which help them learn to better live in our community and world. Students learn from their teachers and from each other. They are given a multitude of experiences to creatively learn to express their talents and abilities, not only academically but through music, including violin lessons, art, cultural and physical activities and independent thinking. These are invaluable teachings that the faculty encourage with their students. The teachers are highly qualified, well educated and are motivated to give the students the best education possible. They would be an asset to any school. I am delighted that my grandchildren are so blessed to have the opportunity to attend St. Anthony.
Student teacher ratio is second only to quality teachers in my mind when selecting a school. St. Anthony gets high marks from me on both. All grades are staffed by above average teachers and the kindergarten teacher is phenomenal. The facilities could use improvement but frankly that is not my biggest concern for an elementary school.
