    "I am a Long Island public school teacher and I chose St. William the Abbot for my children. I visited and researched many schools in the area before deciding to send my children here. I wanted a school that had a caring and inclusive environment with wonderful academics and extra-curricular activities. I am so impressed by this school. The expectations in behavior and academics far exceeds public school. The children are well-behaved and it is clear that morals and values are practiced here. When I compare what my children are learning here to my friend s children in public school at the same grade, it is clear that St. William the Abbot is challenging and rigorous. After many years of teaching at an excellent public school and witnessing administration having their hands tied when dealing with: bullying, student behavior issues, violence, lack of morals, lack of respect, and a lack of basic educational skills in many of the students, it became clear to me that I wanted my own child to go to private school. St. William the Abbot has thriving school community with booming enrollment and before and after-school programs. I am so thankful I can send my children here."

    "My children attend SWS, I have nieces and nephews in the public schools and I believe my children are being provided a more than excellant education. It is not only the education that is important to me, but it is also the importance of religion and manners. My children are recieving a quality education, they play with wonderful children and those children have amazing parents that are invloved and care."

    "Catholic Schools raise the standards is a prevelent theme during open house at St. William the Abbot, but in reality, this mantra is a mere paradox. Out of my 9 years of attending SWS (K-8) I can safely say that this school, in fact, lowers the standards. I came to this conclusion based on a myriad of reasons. One of the biggest reasons is St. William's sheer inability to "raise the standards". When I entered high school for the first time, I was quickly discouraged to find out that many students in my grade were enrolled in classes designated for sophomores. SWS lacks a rigorous program for highly motivated students who intend to get "ahead of the game". Another reason that SWS lowers the standards is its irrational spending. I couldn't help but notice that during my last year there, the administration bought brand new flat screen t.v.'s to give a better appeal to the parents (like you), and never seemed to feel the need to replace their obsolete lab equitment. Yes i have made many friends and cherished many memories here at SWS, but in the end, i regret ever attending this school. Moral of the story: send your kids to public school. -Patrick O'Hara - alumni - class of '12"

    "Took the time to do my research and visit every open house within 15 miles of Lindenhurst for 1 year before deciding to send my children here. I knew as soon as I walked in the door that this is the one. It has been one year and I have never been so grateful for such a beautiful atmosphere and experience. From a public school for kindergarten to first grade at SWS, I have noticed a difference that is like night and day. As a single parent with VERY little income, I will move mountains to ensure my children attend this school for their entire elementary school journey! The effort, time, care, and attention paid to the students is beyond my furthest expectations!"
