My two sons have attended the JRK3, JRK4, and Kindergarten programs at St.Mary Magdalen school and have had an outstanding experience. The environment is just wonderful - mostly due to caring, devoted teachers who are dedicated to the social and academic development of all the children. Having a full-day Junior Kindergarten program starting at age 3 was a great convenience for us, as working parents, to be able to have one place to have both our 3 and 4 year old go at the same time rather than two school drop-offs to daycare and preschool. This is a rare find amongst Catholic schools. The Junior Kindergarten years prepares them well for Kindergarten. Kindergarten is academically challenging, yet makes learning fun and encourages continued social development. Music, Spanish, Art, PE are all offered beginning at the preschool levels.Their after school program is also excellent - lots of well-supervised time for creative free play outside and inside.The school has a true community atmosphere where the students and parents are very friendly and make an effort to get to know each other even amongst different grade levels. If you want a supportive environment for your children to have an opportunity to grow and learn, and your family to feel welcome and at-home, this is the place.

Logos School literally saved my life. After being bullied in middle school and being diagnosed with anxiety disorder and depression, I went to a large public high school. I was filled with high anxiety every moment of every day, so much that I even stopped attending school for quite some time.I was so close to running out of options (other than dropping out), but I decided to give one last shot to Logos... That was the best decision of my entire life. The therapists there were SO helpful, and they really understood my specific needs. I met the best friends I could ever ask for at that school. Logos made every day an exciting adventure and helped me overcome so many struggles, both therapeutically and academically.Very recently, I graduated from Logos School, which was something I could have ever imagined myself doing just a couple years ago. I am currently attending my dream school for college and pursuing my dream career.I could not thank Logos enough for giving me my confidence back and helping me discover who I truly am. I would recommend at least checking out Logos because attending school there was a life-changing experience that will help me cope with things a lot better in my future. I have learned so much about myself, mental health, and forming strong relationships with others over the two years I was there. Thanks to Logos School, I now have my life back in order, and I know I am capable of doing great things in the future.

Logos has been a life-saver for our family. Three years ago, our daughter was in a school setting where she was misunderstood, bullied, and singled out as a “bad” kid. In an environment without anyone to care or advocate for her needs, she became angry and isolated. She had no friends, and school staff chose to look the other way when conflict arose. Since starting at Logos, our daughter has blossomed. She has been acknowledged for her many gifts and talents, made wonderful friendships and enjoys school again. Best of all, she has developed a strong sense of self respect, compassion and understanding for others. Our home life is so much more pleasant, and we are finally able to relax and enjoy our family time together.

DON'T GO. There is nothing masterful about the institution besides the skilled forked tongue of the principal. If you have a student that is smart, bright, talented with great state test scores but not a wealthy then watchout! This guy will say anything, even blatant lies to convince you to place your scholar in his incapable hands! My student was home schooled. There were other great schools but all very expensive and kind of far. When we found this place we thought it might be God sent. The staff was nice, they seemsed to have a real focus on education and they were located within walking distance of my husbands job. Looks, and talk can all be decieving.The kids at this place are unbeliveable. Rude, loud, total lack of educational focus. My student was bullied and very little teaching happend in most classes. Only two or three of the instructors had any control of there classroom. after my student being assualted for the third time and finally getting defensive with words only, not even cursing, the principal, Mr. Peebles decided to TRY and suspend my scholar for a day. We withdrew our student immediately. Read my words. DO NOT GO.
