As a parent, I would not say that teachers generally challenge students to learn. I don't think that this is a school that caters to academically inclined children.

I have to agree with the 10/20/09 review. Disappointing as we were expecting much more beyond the foundation of faith and values that you would assume comes with every private/catholic school. A decent focus on the academic basics, but a puzzling lack of interest by the school in teaching diversity
