    I am a graduate of SAS as was my mother. My son Noah now attends SAS and he loves it. I always knew someday my children would go here. We aren't just a school we are a family. We have the kindest Principal competent loving teachers a strong PTA and wonderful parents. Our school offers an excellent foundation for future success. Their curriculum is up to par and excels the basic requirements. SAS is know as a school for multiple intelligence b/c they truly are. I am confident that any child will love it here and every parent would approve. I have recommended SAS to many and have seen a 3rd grade girl come from a local public school to attend the summer school program in danger of being left back. After summer school ended her parents enrolled her in our school for the following year promoting her to the 4th grade for a marking period to make sure she was able to follow and by the end of the marking period she was an honor student. Learning the same stuff but in a different way. I can not say enough positive thing about our school it's only something one can understand from experience. SAS N mero Uno!

    St. Augustine school does exactly what it says- we pay attention to every child. I have two children in St. Augustine and I currently believe they are in the right place for them. The teachers are excellent and responsive to every child's needs. They tailor their lessons to every child in the classroom. However they never stray from the traditional Catholic school values and always expect excellence from every child with utmost discipline and respect. They have recently updated their science labs and have a thriving science program that encourages student projects both at home and at school. Their principal and administration listens to all the parents and considers every request and suggestion. Their building is clean and organized and constantly being updated and revamped for the upcoming school year. Their newer preschool teachers are a gem... The kids love them. At the end of the day you see nothing but smiles and that makes it all worthwhile.

    St. Augustine's has a long and storied tradition in educating and molding young people to become productive succesful adults and citizens. My own children who are now young adults received a wonderful foundation at St. Augustine's.

    My three sons graduated from St. Augustine School and they received an excellent education. They are successful in life because of the foundation they received at St. Augustine's.

    My oldest child attended Pre-K and Kinder at St. Augustine's and it was satisfactory. But they don't offer good enough programs for the money that is being paid especially if you compare it to the public schools in the area. I didn't enroll my youngest child here when it was time for him to go to school.

    This school is the best! I used to be a student here. You cannot beat the value of an excellent education coupled with discipline that will apply for good moral character and development of a kid. Thank you Saint Augustine School.

    Superb school! All of my three children attended and they have grown to be exceptional adults. They have advanced academics and robotics. It is a loving and family centered school. Refreshing in today's world.

    Excellent school. The principal is Sr. Roberta who was named the top principal in the region by the Archdiocese. They are strict but loving. My daughter did extremely well there. I wish I had the funds to reenroll her there again! They have great activities for the kids and for the families. Tuition is really reasonable (I had financial hardship so I could not continue my childs education there).
