As an educator, and a parent, I must say I absolutely love St. Anne's school. I appreciate the constant communication between parents and teachers. I also appreciate the priests from St. Anne's (names are not permitted here) being involved with my son's life on a daily basis. The teacher's are very

As a graduate of St. Annes I can tell you that the school gave me the building blocks from K-8 to be the success that I am today.

As a parent, I am gratified that the principal is very visible to the students on a daily basis. The enrichment programs offer something for everyone.

I am a graduate from St. Anne's, and I am beyond disappointed with the quality of education being offered. The cirriculum is very basic, and was not at all prepatory for my future as a student. The language courses only begin in the 7th grade, the math couses have no real direction.( Jumped from pre-algebra,

There is a lack in cultural diversity which is key to a sucessful school, and well-rounded students. Very little extra-curricular activities offeres, and the few offered will leave a huge hole in your pocket. ( My family spent at least 3,500 dollars for just one year of cheerleading.) All in all, the school was not challenging at all, which I appreciated back then, but now I am regretting. Read less

I am a graduating parent of St Annes, and have children in the school presently. The first few years we all loved the school, but as the years go on we find it getting 'lazy' the educators are under paid and it shows in there involvement with the students. One of the teachers I would like to mention

The academics and extra activities need improvement, such as hands on learning, math, science lab,and experiments. The music and art program are lacking, poor Mrs. Baratta needs an art room, and all the students should have art. And I know the children and parents would love some kind of drama club where the whole school put on plays, not just St. Anne stages.

Saint Anne School is an environment that facilitates integrity and faith. I enjoyed working in this school because, I could always say Jesus and God and not feel I had said something wrong.
