St. Matthew the Apostle School Reviews

All facilities and resources in the school are satisfactory. As to my knowledge, there isn't a science lab. The school as a whole is in excellent condition. The parents involvement is reduced as the grades get higher. But within reason .

They do have some after school tutoring at no extra charge. This school does not have a busing program.

My four years of experience here have been uneventful. I have never had any issues.

The school has a family like atmosphere. Everyone knows everyone. And all are very helpful.

The children are very respectful to each other and the staff and adults.

I think that is why it's so easy for the kids to learn. There's no distractions and they are all eager to learn new things.

For many many reasons I would recommend St Matthew. But mostly because of the quality of education the children are receiving.
All the teachers that I worked with have all been absolutely fabtastic. They are genuinely concerned for the children .

All their teaching skills seem to be very effective. And all of them have gone above and beyond for their students.

They kept me well informed of my child's progress. Together we worked on keeping his behavior satisfactory.

they all are the best teachers and each one deserve to be recognize for their dedication to their students.
