If; however, you're looking for a school that expects active participation from parents, that teaches effectively and makes your child feel as though he or she is part of a school community, this is the right choice.

This is a horrible experience for a mother that did everything she could to research schools early and find the best school possible for her child. Do not trust this school! They do not care about the child or the parent. They were rude, defensive, and unapologetic about backing us into a corner and taking advantage of us. Read less

Our daughter loves St Clare school and so do we (qarents). She is in first grade and has been in Pre-school and Kindergarten in the same school. I feel that the sacrifice that we do to send her to a catholic school (St Clare) is really showing and we are really proud of her and the school. We wish
