    I went to St. Lawrence school for 7 years. I always loved going to school and all of the friends I made there. The curriculum challenged me and colleges look highly upon the Catholic School System in Lafayette.

    This is an amazing school. The teachers are involved with the parents and it actually seems like they care as opposed to some of the public schools I went to. The other parents are a great help to new parents. As well as the staff I have asked a great many questions and have never felt like any of them were out of place. If you have any questions as to the quality of this school simply go to any other school at the end of the day and watch how they leave then come check out St. Lawrence. Sean a proud St. Lawrence parent.

    The teachers at St. Lawrence are so dedicated to the children and you can see that they genuinely love them. We have had four children go through St. Lawrence and all are college bound. St. Lawrence prepares children for more than just academics - it prepares them for LIFE. We are so happy to have chosen St. Lawrence for our children.

    Both of my children went to this preschool. Being an elementary teacher I would recommend this preschool. It is the perfect mix of preschool skills and social interaction. The children learn the basics such as cutting writing name and learning alphabet skills counting skills etc. There is also playtime both inside and outside on good weather days. Any Christian family would be comfortable here; kids pray before snacks are taught manners and learn about Christian holidays. This preschool is also very reasonable in price. The teachers teach from the heart.

    My wife and I are both professors who moved into West Lafayette specifically for it's schools buy we soon discovered that the WL district is overrated and after one year on it's system decided after careful research to enroll our 6 yr old and 8 yr old into St Lawrence Elementary. We are of course Catholic buy we are convinced that the academic standards are equal to those of WL and that the learning environment over all is superior. Look me up and email me or Paula Leverage for details.
