My 3 kids love the school. My oldest, now in 4th grade has been there since kindergarten. It is a wonderful community school and I feel my kids are getting a very well rounded education. They have many community building events and have a top notch academic program.

I enrolled my child here a few years ago and they really do not seem to enjoy it. The principal promised a lot of things that have still not gone through. My child is also having problems switching from a Project Based Learning environment to and high school testing environment.

All of our children have attended St. Matthias. We were especially impressed with the work that Mrs. Reinhard did turning the school around after the 30 year reign of Sister Marcien. Ms. De Sapio is nice, but strict about getting children to school on time! A $5 fee will result if they are overly ...  Read more

This school recently changed principal this year. It is still trying to find out where and what it wants to do. They say they value parents input yet none of the staff ever says good morning, or are courteous. They have double standards depending on if you have money or just a middle class parent payee. ...  Read more
