Because I am an alumni, parent of students who attended here and I work here, I can honestly say that this is an excellent school.

I am disappointed in this school. The principle is so cold and stand off-ish that she definitely has her favorites with kids/parents.

SVDP school curriculum is good. The teachers can be nice and caring, but at the same time favoritism for returning student is a problem. Some of the students attending the school I feel, are students that did not succeed with their behavior in a public school. Some of the parents use Catholic schools

This is an issue that is on going and not resolved. This school would be an even better school if, SVDP had a new plan of action for disciplining students who continue to disrupt other students in class and cause harm to other students. Too many chances are given to students that just can t seem to get it right. Read less
