St. Edward-Epiphany School keeps its commitments to parents who enroll their children as evidenced in parent feedback:

“We are very happy to be a part of SEES and are so grateful our child is a part of such a loving and supportive environment.…”

“We love SEES for its supportive learning environment, wonderful teachers, and strength of community. The teachers do a great job of providing the children with the tools to self-monitor their progress and having the children be accountable for their own work and progress as well.”

“We love the school and all that it stands for and are glad that we are part of the “family”. I couldn’t imagine my children going to school anywhere else!”
