The first grade Reading Program is quite good. Our daughter has learned a tremendous number of words in her first few months
The After School Day Care Program is well run. Perhaps it is too well run; sometimes it is difficult to get our daughter to leave when it is time to go home
In addition to being an effective administrator, the principal is remarkably good at directing traffic
We have been very happy that our daughter has been at Little Flower. There is a real feeling of community and closeness that few school s have.

The administration and teachers do a great job of keeping parents engaged and informed and they encourage parental involvement. They are always willing and available to discuss our child’s progress.
I have had my children at three different independent schools over the years. The community at LFS is extraordinary – from the principal, teachers, priests, students and families. Everyone in the community is welcoming, friendly and people truly help and look out for one another and each other’s children.
The children know and are known by all the kids and adults in the community – older children play with younger ones.
It is woven into every aspect of their experience to be kind.
