    Outstanding, safe school with caring faculty and excellent academics! The teachers truly care about bringing out the best in each child. Everyone at the school is friendly, and it is a loving, safe environment where one can see happy children everywhere. The athletic program is competitive yet all-inclusive through 4th grade, and the fine arts program is creative and fun. The Catholic, Christian environment encourages children to love God and share their God-given gifts with the world. Students are challenged and extremely well-prepared for their schooling after they leave St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School. Students are also encouraged to have compassion for others both at the school and in and outside of our country as community service is a requirement beginning in junior high school. The teachers don't "teach to the test," so students learn critical thinking skills which are so important to have in college and in one's career.
    Mr. Hood, the somewhat new president, has been making a lot of small changes that are bettering the school, but no major changes need to be made. The faculty and administration is truly one of the greatest things about St. Agnes. Everyday I walked around school and knew almost every person I passed in the hallway and wether it was a student or teacher, we always passed with a friend “Hello! How are you?” Or “Good to see you” and a big smile. The school spirit is incredible and the bond of sisterhood everyone talks about is REAL. I graduated this year, May 2019, and it literally breaks my heart having to leave such an incredible school. However, I know SAA will always welcomes me home and the bonds I have made with teachers, students, coaches, and everyone at the school will last a lifetime.
