I was a student teacher in Spring of 2009. I thoroughly enjoyed my experiences there. The principal, Ms. Perry was always helpful and Miss Letty at the front desk still remembers me to this day. I found the 1st grade parents eager to participate with activities such as a field trip to the zoo and in

This is an excellent school where your child can grow academically, spiritually, and emotionally. I am always highly impressed with the level of knowledge and patience the staff/teachers have.

As you can see from the December 2008 review, we are not dealing with rocket scientists here. Unfortunately, parents are only too happy to put the blame on the 'principle' of the school and its teachers. It's easier than dealing with your child, I suppose. As for the 'non-existant' communication,

(This is stated both in the handbook and at the 5th-8th grade parent meeting held before school starts.) The vast, vast majority of parents don't attend PTO meetings, let alone reach into their pockets and pull out any money for the school. School volunteers are the same group of parents every year. The school has had its share of problems, but I believe--and know--that the teachers care very much about their students. Read less

My child is in fifth grade and my experience with this school has been horrible. I am not going to let my child finish the year. I am very disappointed with the teachers of this school as well as the priciple. I have made phone calls, written letters, sent emails, and visited the principle with a

This is a great school! The staff are truly vested in teaching these children academically as well as spiritually. The size of this school makes it so easy to know everyone and feel connected like a family. My only regret is that it doesn't go all the way through high school

... Read more family for the past 3 years. The teachers are concerned about the students and their progress-any academic problems that may arise are quickly rectified by not only taking extra time with the student but letting the parent know what is occurring. They also have a wonderful resource teacher who not only cares about students that attend her class regularly but also about other students that may also have problems. We also have a wonderful guidance counselor. Next to our cafeteria; the P.E. and art classes are rated #1 by the students. The students also enjoy learning Spanish and Latin, as well as taking music, choir, band or one of the other elective studies in the arts and humanities department. St. Anne is kept in tip-top-shape by our great building superintendent and his aide. Our assistant principal and administrative assistant are the best-they know ever child and parent in the school by name and you can always talk to them about any concerns that may arise. Our principal is wonderful-he cares greatly about the students and their parents as well as the school staff. The children love our priest and they enjoy going to mass. Of course you can never appreciate a school such as this one by just these postings-make the first step and visit the school yourself...from there speak with the faculty, students, parents, and volunteers of this wondrous school. Think of it like this: Don't judge a book by its cover-read the pages and in between the lines-and just like an interesting book you just might like what you find at St. Anne. Read less
