Our family is parishioners of St Stans, but started our kids in public school. Due to issues involving bullying, we removed our kids from that environment. We researched institutions from religious/parochial to private/prep schools and chose St. Stans. We have been extremely happy with the curriculum and the overall education the kids have received. I have friends that are teachers and friends who just have kids in the public school, and both are VERY unhappy with the common core instruction. St Stans is not bound by common core, and comparing schoolwork at the same grade from St. Stan's to that of a friends child in public school, we have found St Stans is more advanced. Friends children in public schools are not being taught spelling or cursive writing etc. I know when we chose to send the kids to St. Stan's friends commented that the education in Catholic schools are not as good as in public. I can only speak to the St Stans program and I can tell you that nothing is further from the truth. We are very happy with the academics, teachers and discipline the school provides. Families are very involved. Issues are addressed ASAP. Our kids will tell you that they love their school.

Wonderful school. We are new to the school for 2014-2015 school year and have all positive things to say about St Stan's. The teachers really love the kids and love to teach. It's obvious the teachers want the children to succeed. The parent group is active and welcoming to new families. My daughter loves going to school each day. We toured all the parochial schools in Meriden prior to making the decisions to come and be part of the St Stan's family and while each school had something to offer we are so happy we chose St Stan's. A full gym and hot lunch program with a cafeteria in itself is a bonus the other schools do not have. I'm sure St Stan's has it's flaws but from a new parents perspective and knowing there was a change in principals this school year, everything seems to be going smoothly. Most important is the happiness of the kids and my child adores all her teachers and classmates. The transition was very easy. I only wish we looked into St Stan's earlier. This review may sound over the top but usually people only write reviews when they have something negative to say, and often times the positive gets overlooked.

St. Stan's has been a great experience for my children. The teachers go above and beyond to help them learn.

St. Stan's has been a "God" send to my son and my family. My son Brady started kindergarten last year at St. Stan's after the school was recommended to me by a social worker/child counselor. Meriden public schools do not have the one-on-one student/teacher relationship that my child has benefited from at St. Stan's. He is reading at a level far above his grade, his speech development issues were addressed immediately upon enrollment, his teachers communicate openly and positively with me and the overall "personality" of the school is positive. I am proud to send my son there and extremely satisfied with the education and ministry he is receiving there. I look forward to sending my daughter to kindergarten there in 2015.

St. Stans has a great community. Education is the foundation of this community along with school spirit and pride. My child is thrilled to be a student at St. Stans where education is held to a higher standard. From the parents to the principal they are a wonderful group of people that help instill good values in the children. They have shown my child that learning can be fun too. Lots of fun events to participate in that help the school and community.
