    I am currently a sophomore in college and an alum of Saint Vincent’s. I commuted for all four years from Northern Westchester. The environment that the Adminstration and fellow students cultivate make the long trek worth every minute spent at school. The faculty and staff take the students progress and well being to heart. By the time I graduated, and arrived at college my teachers at SVF had already introduced me to basic collegiate concepts and skills. The warm environment and wonderful academics of Saint Vincent’s prepares every young lady to boldly go forward and embrace their goals!

    It's a wonderful school! I've grown and learned so much here, and I will continue to do so in the next two years. If you choose Ferrer for High School you are definitely making the right choice! The girls are so friendly along with the teachers. All of the teachers genuinely want the students to succeed and will help you as long as you ask. I wholeheartedly believe this is a great school for any girl who wants to attend!
    Saint Vincent Ferrer High School is an excellent school. The faculties and administration are really good at their job. The atmosphere is positive. Help is always around the corner. The principal is a great leader. She never disparages the ideas of others. She listens to the propositions of everyone and puts it to work. Has the best interests of everyone. Welcomes everyone in a generous and loving manner. I say this because when I was about to transfer to the school she welcomed me with a kind and loving manner. Made me feel comfortable and cared about. Honestly, she is the best. Moreover, the girls are really talented, smart, brave, kind, and loving. The resource here is abundant. This school is the best academically. The only problem is the cafeteria food. There’s barely any healthy foods. I highly recommend this school.
