We have three children (K 5th 7th) at ASCS and have been members of this community since 2006. We are very pleased with the love of Christ our children have as a direct result of their attendance at All Saints! The teachers are dedicated and the new administration is committed to the success of the school. Our children are well prepared in Math and language arts as well as Spanish! We love our community and have developed many life long friends at ASCS!!! Our children are HAPPY at ASCS! The children at All Saints are so well behaved and polite! I highly recommend this school!!

Our child has been enrolled at All Saints for the past 3 school years starting in Pre-K. I can't say enough about how much we love this school. Worth every dollar. I am constantly amazed with how much my child is learning at such a young age. This school has previously been selected as a national blue ribbon school and the kids consistently score in the top 10% in standardized tests (without being "taught the test"). The building is top notch with a recently completed gym and smart boards in the classrooms. In addition to the basic curriculum my kid has spanish art music technology library and PE classes. The teachers and administration know the kids by name and are very warm toward the parents. There are a lot of very affluent families at this school but the administrations doesn't appear to treat anyone any different based on their ability to donate (and they don't hound you for donations or with fundraisers) but they do expect significant parental involvement. Although it is a Catholic school it is not overly religious in its educational delivery. Bottom line you can't go wrong here if you can snag a spot.
The teachers are A+ all the kids here are lifted up and celebrated.
The teachers and administrative staff are amazing. My kids are learning so much and loving being at school.
This is a wonderful school. The teachers all sincerely care about the students and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure that each student is successful in everything they do.
I have two children in school there and love it. Parental involvement is awesome. Teachers are fantastic. Tough curriculum.
Our son is in the 5th grade. We love All Saints! The teachers really care about the students both academicallly and becoming responsible kids. We feel that All Saints is one big family. Even though we are not as well off financially as a lot of the families we have not felt out of place. We have not noticed any cliques of kids or parents. We are so fortunate to have All Saints in our town.
I really like All Saints. Its a good size and there are so many electives to choose from.
This school has everything a child needs to succeed in life. A great education parental involvement and extracurricular that has sports theatre music scouts 4-H chess competitive academic groups religious groups & communities service. The extracurricular is growing more every year.
My sons go to All Saints and it has the best decision for our family. They are becoming good kids with a conscience. The teachers care for them and the students care for each other besides getting a great education. It is a very special place and we are lucky enough to get to go there.
We love All Saints! We have four children their right now and our oldest child has been at the school for eight years now and quite frankly I could not see her anywhere else. The teachers and staff are wonderful! They are always trying to improve themselves and are willing to try something new. Their participation in outside school activities really shows that they are involved both in the classroom and outside. I believe the students learn the Catholic teachings throughout all their subjects and really try to become great citizens. The quality of work all our children bring home is wonderful and the national test scores reflect that. The community atmosphere is incredible and the parent involvement is great. We have the best parents! The principal has always addressed any of our concerns and is a wonderful leader.
My son has been at All Saints for pre K and now K. I love the school the teachers and all the kids in my son's class. I find it hard to believe the things that others have said go on in the older grades. I am certainly not an 'in person' at the school but I have never felt anything less than welcome and appreciated for any involvement I have at the school from coming to eat lunch with my son to volunteering for an event. I think with the tuition as low as it is fundraising has to be a part of plan. We are already excited about our now two year old being able to go to ASCS. Our experince has been nothing but positive - my son is leaps ahead of his friends in Norman public K.
I had two children attend All Saints. We chose to move our children to the public schools for financial reasons. However the education and experience they received at All Saints was always positive. They were able to transition to the public schools without being behind in any subjects and in fact were placed in advanced classes. I am sure that this is due in part to the foundation they received while at All Saints.
Our oldest son has attended All Saints since kindergarten. He is now in third grade and we are very happy with our choice to send our son there. I am amazed every year with the education he receives and the level of care the teachers provide. The teachers really care about their students and are always open to discussing situations with parents. Parental involvement in highly encouraged and appreciated by the teachers and the faculty. There is fund raising but it is a private school and that is to be expected. Our son is getting a great catholic education. The level of learning is high but the catholic faith lives in this school. I actually heard some 8th grade students talking in the hall the other day and they were discussing Jesus. I know you would never hear that in a public school.
It is rather interesting that those who have negative opinions about our school chose not to include their names. I wonder if these parents shared their reasons for leaving All Saints with the administration. I am proud to be a teacher at All Saints and I realize that my opinion may be viewed as biased. However I believe that All Saints provides a quality education to the students. Our mission is help children to know love and serve God through academic pursuits and service to others. I invite skeptics to take a look at our test scores academic awards and achievements and our long list of service projects. Christ is at the center of all we do. Our school provides an atmosphere of love and concern for all students as we strive to help each one grow up in an environment imbued in Christian values.
I love this school! we have had our children here since Pre-K and the parental involvement is incredible. The teachers are in contact totally by e-mail phone and in person. My oldest has a learning disability and the school has went out of its way to get him what he needs. My children are in this school for the community and values this school offers. I know of 4 children who have left the school for finances or divorce and they all were placed in advance Math in Norman public middle schools. My children have had term papers essays speeches & novels to read that my friends in public have told me they have never had at Norman public schools!! the class sizes are never larger then 25 with a assistant and my child has had 16-18 in his class the last 3 years. catholic family environment
Our daughter went to All Saints from K to 4th and our son went from Pre-K to K. He then went to Norman Public Schools. Quite honestly my son has learned more in the public schools than my daughter ever learned at All Saints. Our daughter felt 'behind' her classmates when she began public school in the 5th grade. All Saints is not worth the money. It isn't even really 'catholic' in the universal meaning. I found it to be a very elitist environment and I am very relieved to have my kids attend Norman Public Schools which academically 'knock the socks off' All Saints Eagles. I just wish I had known this five-years'-worth-of-tuition earlier.
The class sizes are large in the lower grade classes (23-26). The pre-k and Kindergarden classes have full time assistants but they were removed from the other grades due to the budget. Quality of education is still good but the class sizes are definately not small until you get to the middle school.
We've had two children who have attended ASCS. We were very happy with the education obtained by our first child but recent changes in staff and faculty have diminished the effectiveness of the school. A school that expounds the notion of equality allows bullying especially if the child's parent is very 'involved' with the school. Parents are very clickish and that behavior is passed on to the children. The school failed to adequately address my second child's need to improve reading skills. The school seems overly focused on raising money and pays lip service to teaching morals values and educational skills. I hope the principal will recognize the problems and turn the school around before my third child can attend but it is too late for our second. We have transfered her to another school in hopes that a more supportative environment will improve her learning.
When we first started out at All Saints in the second grade we loved it. Now my child is in middle school and we are very displeased with the quality of education. The quality of teachers has diminished the principle is non-responsive to problems the students are unsupervised and have been involved in many skirmishes and violent behavior toward each other which the faculty has no knowledge of because of low supervison on the playground. The rules have doubled and most have not been helpful but are being put in place for reasons that do not make sense. My child's scores were way above the national average when we were in grade school there but have continuously fallen especially in math where she was accelerated by two grade levels. The tuition costs have continued to rise but the quality has continued to decline and budget problems are making it even worse.
