    This school is warm and nurturing. Your child will be given attention as an individual person and opportunities to succeed on his or her own terms. The teachers and administrators in the middle school are straight forward and accessible. It is a very small school with a family feel. The PTA is an active and positive group.

    I am the parent of a new fourth grader at St. Gregory The Great. I feel blessed to have found this school for my son. He was in a charter school for three years. During that time the concern was more on test scores instead of the student. At St. Gregory the Great the student is important. The principal and all of the staff are wonderful. The curriculum is great and the students achieve because they are not stressed. My son has excelled at this school. I would recommend this schools to anyone!!

    My daughter has attended St. Gregory the Great for nearly two years. Her teacher along with the other teachers and administrators have always had her educational experience as their top priority. I have recommended this school to family and friends.

    After having significant problems at his previous school my son has thrived at St. Gregory the Great School. The nurturing environment and the great teachers have just really allowed him to learn and grow in a way he never did before. He's proud to walk into the beautiful facility every morning and we really could not be happier with this school.

    My son is in the 4th grade and his second year at St. Gregory. After trying out public and charter schools I was blessed to find St. Gregory and my son absolutely loves school now. The kids are well mannered respectful caring and considerate. The principal teachers and staff treat all the kids as if they were their own which makes for a loving and nurturing environment. St. Gregory makes learning fun with some very creative techniques and ways to teach. The curriculum is also well planned and executed. My son looks forward to going to school on time everyday with a smile on his face and as a parent you couldn't ask for more. .

    I went to St. Gregory's a while back. The staff are sweet people for the most part. It is a small school which is good in the sense that you never feel left out or like a stranger. However with a small school comes atrocious things as well. For EX everyone seems to know your business and it is not so much as the students that "gossip" but mostly the teachers/staff. There are many parents that complain about the same teachers. There is a male teacher in the jr. high department that well everyone has their own opinion on him.. but I don't have a great review on him. He does not have the correct job that fits his ways or rules. He rarely teaches his students and is very sarcastic to his students and sometimes parents. He tends to put his students down instead of lifting them up; as a teacher it is your job to lift up your students and it is okay to have an opinion but you are NOT to share it with your student especially in front of the whole class in which he is famous for. There is another teacher in the lower school dept. that is very strict and very unwelcoming to his/her students. This teacher is very famous for the amount of HW/discipline he/she gives the kids.

    The first day of school my son loved it. He cant wait to go everyday and he feels like a big boy learning and doing all sorts of activities in his pre-k class. Principals and teachers are super sweet and thinking of transferring my daughter to this school next year for her 1st grade class.

    Wonderful school Teacher and Parents. My daughter loves to go to school everyday. The staff knows you and your childs name. The Principal is wonderful and caring. If your looking for a school that keeps you posted with your childs needs and treats your child like they're a part of a family then this is the school for you.

    My child attended St. Gregory for 2 years when I decided to put her in Public School. Well needless to say she is back in St. Gregory. I love the fact that everyone knows each other by first names and safety is incredible. I wish they had a second language in the curriculum.

    My child has attended St.Gregory since starting pre-K at the age of three. The school has provided my daughter w/ a safe and caring community where she has been able to continue developing both academically and socially. My only gripe is that they do not offer a 'gifted' program. I look forward to seeing my daughter complete her elementary school education at St. Gregory the Great.
