    All 5 of my children have gone to Transfiguration since they were 5 years old. Transfiguration is a school where the children come first. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. They are there to teach because they want to be part of Catholic Education. The principal is outstanding and knows each child by name. She is an excellent leader and is always supporting new and creative ways to bring the best out in each and every child. Transfiguration gives my children encouragement and confidence with their diverse learning styles. I am especially grateful for the value based curriculum that centers on Christ.

    Transfiguration has done wonders for my son. The staff sincerly cares about every child that attends. I couldn't be happier with the dedication.
