After much comparison (spending the day, research, interviews, discussion with students and parents) the field narrowed down to 2 schools.

My son attends the middle school and so far he has excelled far more than I thought he would. The instruction he gets each day is top notch and he is guided through the bumps along the way.

My six brothers and I all graduated from Catholic Memorial and I have worked here for ten years. Next year my son will attend.
