I currently have two children attending St. Anthony's. It is often said that St. Anthony's is more than a school, it is a family. I could not find this to be more true. Not only do all of the faculty know and recognize all of students and their families, but so do the students. The principal

She always puts the well being and safety of the students as priority #1. The new learning systems are phenominal for reading and math. The online link to each class (Edline) is a wonderful tool also. I would not think of sending my children to any other school. Read less

St. Anthonys is a small Faith based School. The teachers and principal have the knowledge of knowing each and every student and his /her parents by name. This is a great asspect when looking into a school for your child. I did however find some problems with this school that I didn't like.
... Read more The students only have P.E. once a week and they no longer have a wellness class. The class rooms have been stripped of the carpets for circle time. Out dated play ground equip. The school is in need of updates of the students books as well. With the fee paid for books each year I felt that the children should recieve more updated books then the old ( some ) torn used books they passed out . Read less

The principal is super hands-on and always available to talk to...she is even there at dismissal to help the children load-up in the cars.

This is a wonderful school. The teachers are very involved and also very creative in the way that they teach. The addition of the Accelerated Reading and Accelerated Math programs have been very helpful to the students. The participation in activities in association with the Public School System (Science
... Read more Fair, E-Team, Florida's Young Scholars) is great. The atmosphere of the school if familial. All the teachers know the childrens names, as does the Principal. The aftercare program is great, as are the monthly and holiday craft projects. The only drawback I see, which is somewhat of a trade off for the small school advantages, is the lack of some extra-curricular activities, such as band and sports for the younger children. However, in addition to PE, they also have Wellness class (with plenty of exercising) weekly, which is great. Read less
