    My student attended Epiphany K through 8. My child learned to love learning from Kindergarten through 2nd grade. Third and fourth grade were both a little rough with lax teaching from both and the 3 rd grade teacher did not like some of the boys. After we made it through that stage 5th became much better and my child was very well prepared for high school where my child excelled. The teachers in middle school grades communicated and guided. We are truly satisfied with our Epiphany experience and open this gem continues to educate students at this high level that educates the whole child. Thank you Mrs. Klerk for your leadership and time in the classroom.

    My daughter attended Epiphany for 9 years and the quality of education she received there was superior. Teachers were caring knew exactly how to teach the materials and truly believe the "No student is left behind". There was always time for one on one instruction. Epiphany taught my daughter wonderful study habits which she has carried through to high school. Because of her education at Epiphany she is in Honors and Advance Placement classes in High School. Epiphany offers a faith filled atmosphere Christian environment. All the teachers go out of their way to fully educate the children. Quality education Christian atmosphere small class sizes with room for one on one instructional leaning caring teachers - Epiphany is where students and families will receive this. Thank you Epiphany Catholic School for preparing my daughter for the next phase of her life. We truly were blessed to be a part of the Epiphany family.

    Our child attended this school for almost 6 years starting in kindergarten. For many years Epiphany Catholic School in Lake City was a place we were proud to say our child attended. It offered an excellent education along with caring teachers all in a family atmosphere. Sadly to say after many meetings with the principal and certain teacher/s we pulled our child midway through the year. We were not the only ones their where several other parents including a teacher who had children attending the school who also left. It was even brought by several parents to the Priest that their where issues going on but still nothing was changed. Their are several exceptional teachers at Epiphany unfortunately their are a few teachers including the principal who apparently have their own agenda and as long as they are getting their needs met... they don't CARE AT ALL what the parents input is nor that their paychecks come from tuition that we as parents pay. The only hope of Epiphany Catholic School changing is when it financially hurts their bottom line.

    My child received and excellent education at Epiphany and a love for learning. The teachers were very responsive and helpful and really prepared my child for high school. We felt very comfortable with this family atmosphere that educated my whole child. He continues to associate with friends that he made while attending Epiphany.

    We are very pleased and grateful for Epiphany Catholic School. The principal is a genuinely caring and christian educator. Our daughter has attended Epiphany Catholic School since Kindergarten and we can see the developmental advantages from choosing epiphany. The support of the parent Church and pastor is also a huge testament to the purpose and drive of the school. Thank you Epiphany we pray for continued success so that others may benefit from this historical and important institution.

    This is a wonderful school. The school stresses academics community service and religeous study. This a a great place for children to learn and grow.

    This was a wonderful learning experience for me. The teachers were very considerate and truly seemed to care about their student's education. Extracurricular activities are lacking a little but hey it is a small school. Parent involvement is integral. My only complaint from when I went there was the clique behavior. As common as it was nothing ever seemed to be done about it! I survived though and am much better for it. Also if you aren't Catholic they don't try to force-feed it to you.

    Epiphany is the best School! It is fun and you get alot of hands-on activities to participate in. The teachers really get to know the students and its easy to remember who your classmates are because of the small class sizes. I am still attending Epiphany and have been attending since 6th grade. I would recomend this wonderful learning enviroment to any parent.

    This school has come a long way in recent years. The principal and my son's fourth grade teacher are very responsive to parent input. Homework can go a little overboard but the teacher is working with parents/students on getting this to a reasonable level. The teachers seem very respectful of the students. There is no harsh 'backwoods' punishment as I've seen in area public schools. I do wish that the couple of students who consistently misbehave would be removed from the classroom until parents have addressed the problem with their children. This school is heads and tails above the public and other private schools in the Lake City area. Now if they'd only start a high school!

    I attended Epiphany several years ago and have known students of the school all my life. Students of the school have consistently received an excellent education in very well-disciplined classrooms. I was not a Catholic and was a little nervous about attending at first - but I was made to feel very comfortable by the staff and clergy. 'Clique' behavior - that is singling out and teasing or bullying the poor the different the socially awkward etc. - has always been very high at the school however and the concerns of victim students should be given more attention.

    Epiphany is an awful school. I children there are very creul and they will not do anything about it. The teachers choose favorites and they do not grade fairly. Would not recommend this for any child.

    Our Daughter is currently attending Epiphany in Kindergarten this year...we had a horrible experience with the public school last year and were elated to find a school which places so much value on each child and there unique ability to learn along with an agressive learning curriculum that without saying is second to none. They took time to get to know our daughter and her needs( how she learns best) and the fact that God is the center of there learning experience it makes the environment one that we are so grateful for. Thank God for such a wonderful school ! I highly recommend them to anyone serious about there childs learning environment and future.

    My friends and I think Epiphany was pretty cool except for the uniforms and the principal Carol Ghionzoli. Most of the time it was entertaining there aren't many sport options. But overall it was pretty good.
