  • The DePaul Catholic School reviewed by a parent

    My son is currently in his second year at DePaul. He started in PK-4 which was an amazing experience for the both of us. The staff are very personable, the teachers are compassionate and communicate very well with the parents, and the parents are very involved. The parents of the students support one another's children which is a very nice aspect of this community. The academic curriculum is age appropriate, yet challenging enough to push them to think. I also love that my son has religion and is taught great morals and values aside from what he is taught at home. The only complaint I have is the class size, I prefer a classroom to have no more than 20 kids in it. However, there are teacher assistants, math/ reading specialist that come and work with the children as well.

    I have been going to this school for twelve years and I have loved every second of it. It's not only the great classes and amazing teachers, the subjects you wouldn't learn anywhere else, it's the people. The entire school is a family, who are capable of amazing things when we all come together.
