    Desales has a family atmosphere which promotes a well rounded education. It has small class sizes with teachers who go above and beyond to insure the success of each student. Each classroom is equipt with a touch screen and computers so that the students become familiar with up to date technology. There are many opportunities for parents to participate either in class or from home. Parents and Grandparents feel comfortable to volunteer through out the year.

    DeSales is an awesome school based on family God and a sense of community. The teachers and staff there are the best! They have a warm genuine passion for education and our childrens success. I've subbed in 7 different school districts but DeSales always had a place in my heart of the closeness of family friendship and quality education by those you can trust.

    My daughter is in her 2nd year at this school. She is currently in Kindergarten. She is very shy and everybody has been terriffic with helping her feel comfortable and bringing her out of her 'shell'. It is a very close community. Parents are very involved in all aspects from volunteering in classes recess monitors lunch monitors extracuricular activities - everything. I always feel welcome by all the teachers and the principal whenever I am there - they never act like it is an intrusion to have the parents there. A very warm caring community! Great education as well!

    My son is completing his 3rd year at DeSales and has had the perfect balance between education and discipline. I feel he is leaps and bounds ahead of comparable grade levels in the Public system.
