    This school is the best when it comes to helping all children learn! They have the support to help the quick learners as well as those who need something different in order to learn. All children are supported and given all they need in order to become the best students they can be.

    Parents - Are you looking for a top quality school for your kids? If so I highly recommend St. Elizabeth Elementary School. This institution has been providing high quality education for 116 years! St. Elizabeth not only offers excellent academics but very centered Catholic teachings and Christian values that enable students to thrive academically and spiritually. It is such a good feeling knowing my kids are in a safe learning environment being taught by highly qualified teachers and staff who truly care. I cannot stress enough what an outstanding school this is. I feel very fortunate that my children are blessed with the opportunity to be students there. If you think you cannot afford the tuition please know that 80% of families receive financial assistance. Come take a visit and discover for yourself what a wonderful treasure St. Elizabeth is!

I still have 2 more children here the youngest was a part of the first Preschool class at St. Elizabeth. I thank all the staff and faculty at St. Liz for making it our second home.

    St. Elizabeth Elementary School is just a wonderful school. From the teachers to the administrative staff everyone shows genuine concern for the intellectual growth of each student. Truly no child is left behind.

    As the parent of a student who moved from a public school into St Elizabeth I cannot speak highly enough of the teachers and staff. My child was not succeeding academically in public schools. The smaller classes and emphasis on development of the student at St Elizabeth changed all that.

    St Elizabeth has very good quality in what they teach and how they teach. It has a more one on one basis with each student teachers care and are very involved with each student and parent.
