Read what parents are saying about St Walter School
Initially, we had anticipated only putting our children in Catholic school for preschool. I had gone to a Catholic grammar school, and my experience wasn't stellar. I had planned to stay here for 2 years and then send our kids to the local public school. However, shortly after the first school year started, we were hooked. St. Walter is a diverse school that celebrates each student, provides individual attention, and challenges its students to grow academically and personally. The staff, parents, and students are all welcoming--we immediately felt at home. We're here for the long haul. I would definitely recommend this school.

I went to public school and never really understood paying for a private education.....until I found St Walter! This small school in a diverse community is filled with love for God and the Catholic faith. We have families from different economic, social backgrounds. Their are also many families of a Christian faith other than Catholic. But it feels like a family. Everyone has been welcoming, my children are teaching me new things and they LOVE going to school. It is a safe place where you know your children will thrive.

My daughter has attended St. Walter for the last 8 years and I am satisfied by the both the educational and social opportunities she has been afforded. She has a strong faith foundation that has been nurtured by the teachers and staff. We are glad we choose a smaller school which allows the students, parents and teachers to know each other. It also offers the opportunity for individualized learning. St. Walter is a great school.

My family have been at St. Walter for 5 years. We are actively involved and invested. Our experience has been very good. It's a safe, inviting and warm environment. Our new principal has implemented many new things and we are looking forward to our new curriculum and activities for next year.
