    Great new principal. Wonderful teachers. Parents that care about their children's education. Great test scores and advance preparation. IPAD use extensive starting at very young age.

    Glad that my son did not get accepted here to go to 2nd grade. They did not accept my son here because they said scored below. I thought that a 2nd grader student would to go your school to learn and not to turn him down because of his test score. This catholic school only cares of who has the most money. The old days catholic schools were different they would accept students to teach them religion and help them succeed but today is who has the most money.

    I'm proud to have my children go to school there. The principal is wonderful. Also this is a blue ribbon award winning school with over 90% of the children attending it eventually graduating from college.

    Great school. Excellent education and values taught to the kids. The sense of community at this school is awesome. The parents are super involved and everybody pitches in at the fundraisers. Love that the kids go to Mass every week. The best place for my girls.

    As a new parent it's been a good experience. The principal teachers and staff have all been very welcoming. (Also the parents!) I love the structure and uniforms. There is a lot of fundraising but not any more then the public schools these days!

    I have had my kids at St. Bonaventure ever since kindergarten and they have received an excellent education. The staff and faculty take their mission as Catholic educators seriously and this enhances the environment and experience for the kids and parents. The technology program is first-rate and there are multiple programs to support math and reading. Understand however that the leadership is in transition after the retirement of the previous principal (who was in place for decades) so everyone is undergoing a period of adjustment. If you want a quality education from a Christian Catholic perspective for your child St. Bonaventure is a great place to be.

    I go to this school and I agree with theother comments. I think that our level of education is above average but the teachers have favorites and hate all the other students. They've shortened our recess to ten minutes but they still make us go inside only five minutes into the recess/snack break

    I was finally able to pull my kids out of St. Bonaventure this year (ex paid tuition for previous year). The level of education the students receive is below average at best. Please if you're a parent of a current student do your kid (and yourself) a favor and set some time aside this weekend to ask simple questions you feel your kid should know. Be prepared to be unsettled. For the amount of soliciting they do you'd think the kids would be receiving the best education money can buy. They milk money out of you every chance they get--$1 to be allowed to wear jeans on Fridays? The principal there is a piece of work too. The sad thing is parents pay high tuition fees for the status and fail to realize the horrible level of education their kids are receiving.

    Saint Bonaventure is a National Blue Ribbon award winner and is among U.S. best.

    I have taken my children out of this school because the level of the education that they were getting was below that of kids at other schools. The school is too big and focus is placed mainly on families who make large donations to the church.
