    The teachers in the dual language program are great! My daughter has been a student at St. Alphonsus since kindergarten. She is now in 2nd grade and loves her school. I have seen lots of improvements at the school. Everything keeps getting better. I'm very happy with the school.

    I attended K-8 and I am glad to call it my second home. A lot has changed since I left including a new language program, and principal. My last year we received chrome books to help us with our class work.
