    I am writing regarding the Transitional Kindergarten Program that is ran by Ms. Tanya...She is truly an amazing professional. I cannot emphasize what a huge important part of my child's developmental years she played. She prepared him in ways beyond the textbook traditions. Ms. Tanya pours her heart and soul into these young minds and her experience makes her one of the biggest assets of St. Gregory School. My child has graduated from her class but continues to ask about her and her lessons in feeding the mind body and soul are still with him 2 years later!! As a parent I can't express my gratitude enough for Ms. Tanya. In parenting we make mistakes but choosing Ms. Tanya was one of the things I did - one thousand percent right!!

    I am a parent of a child attending the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program at St. Gregory's and have seen my daughter learn so much within two months of attending school. Miss Tanya the TK teacher is simply amazing! Considering that my daughter is one the younger ones in the class (she just turned 4 in August) she has progressed significantly. Before attending schoool she was at home being cared for by grandma. However she has developed socially and academically in a very short time frame. I am truly impressed with the school and TK program. The school welcomes everyone like family!

    I am a proud graduate of St. Gregory's from the second graduating class over 50 years ago. I received a superb education which is still important all these years later. We had a 50-year reunion last year and were warmly welcomed back by the wonderful principal and teachers. The children made us cards and decorations for the reunion which was fabulous. I am so grateful that I got my start in life at St. Gregory's.

    My daughter attended St. Gregory the Great from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Her high school entrance exam scores were very high and she received two scholarships. Ms. Cattani and Mr. Valenzuela did an excellent job of preparing her. I thank God for the educational and spiritual foundation that she built during her years at St. Gregory.

    I am a parent of 3 graduates from this school. They have moved on to higher education (including college for masters degree) and have always shared with others that it started at St. Gregory the Great School. This school gave them the structure they needed away from home and the value of their faith morals respect and friendships. Good character is such a huge asset to have as you grow up and all three feel that St. Gregory the Great help enhance it. To this day they still visit the school and have fond memories of their teachers and classmates.

    A great school that focuses mainly on students growth with good religious education high academics cultural involvement & respect for others. Many parents have seen the big difference since we got our new principal. Together with the principal the faculty members are hands on with the students. They know each student and have good relationship with them. The teachers have been in the school for several years as well. A comfortable place to leave your children to learn. Our children loves going to school and feels happy with the environment they are in. Any negative aspects are addressed immediately and communicated with the parents to be resolved. Another good thing is that the church and school are one. They work together as one community. It's hard to find a school that have these characteristics. Glad to know that we have one close to home. God Bless St. Gregory!!!

    Today was the first day of school. We (faculty students parents) had a prayer assembly and the principal & pastor both greeted and welcomed the new and old families. What a powerful way to start the new year!

    St. Gregory the Great is an amazing school. When I attended St. Gregory's I became apart of a big family. I was surrounded by teachers and staff who cared and supported me and an awesome principle who was really involved(like a principle should be). St Gregory is my home away from home.

    St. Gregory keeps getting better and better. So many parents and grandparents are working together to make improvements at the school as well as at the church. It's easy to sit and complain about what you don't like but it's fabulous to put the work into making things better for everyone.
