    Nativity Prep is the best thing that happened for my son. I've never saw a school like this. The teachers here truly are there for your children they. Spend most of their days and evenings educating these young men. The school has smaller class sizes compared to other schools. The teachers spend some of their weekends with the students also going on great field trips. The boys are also taught about community service and how important and valuable it is. They also have the option to go back to school after they go home for dinner they can go back to do their homework assignments in a quiet environment. Nativity has a variety of sports and activities the boys can choose from which is included in their daily school day. I really appreciate the teachers and staff there for devoting their time with the boys. The teachers have a very low income in exchange for room and board and health insurance. We have been blesses for having this opportunity for my son. I have seen such a difference in him compared to when he was in public school. Not one negative thing to say about this school!
