    "When reflecting upon the number of schools my wife and I considered for our daughter and son, St. Lawrence O'Toole excelled - academically, student to faculty ratio, matriculation to the best high schools, extracurricular activities, a student body representative of the diverse and soulful cultures of the Bay Area, consistent parental involvement, location, comfort, integrity... We agree that we made the right choice of primary schools for our children to attend. Now with one of the most sought after, and well respected administrators as principal, Mrs. Jean Kuznik, SLOT has soared to the upper echelon of academic learning centers that prepare children to become independent, critical thinkers and future leaders. Mrs. Kuznik and faculty have cultivated a learning environment that encourages children to use advanced technological tools, while maintaining fundamental and time-honored teaching methods that challenge and advance our children's learning processes. Both of my children have shared several times that "School is fun." Fun? How can this be? Yet both are more confident and proud of their achievements and look forward to the next school day."

    "I have been a parent at the school for six (6) years and now have all three of my children there. I have also had the privilege of serving on the school board, volunteering as a coach and serving in a few fundraising capacities. My wife and I have been very happy with the school and in particular enjoy the camaraderie between the students and the supportive learning environment. We have also found the teachers and principal responsive to parent concerns. A few initiatives that have been launched based on parent feedback have been the expanded music program and the Technology Club. The school continues to grow and provides a very well rounded offering in ethics, athletics, academics and student life."

    "I have two children who attend this school. My youngest just completed 4th grade. I didn't undersand the previous post regarding hours of homework since my daughter had at the most an hour's worth of homework, and that was a rare occasion. She was a focused child who did extremely well in class and learned so much. I volunteered in this class quite a few times, so I was able to see the quality of instruction. I enjoyed being there during Langauge Arts when students would read an excerpt from a book or short story from an author. The teacher brought in other books from that particular author so students could have extended learning beyond their textbook. My daughter enjoyed all of the field trips, and so did I. I liked the fact that the field trips were integrated with what was being taught in class, showing students that what they were learning in class does pertain to the world outside. I highly recommend this school."

    "My child is in her final year (8th) at St. Lawrence O'Toole and has been here since Kindergarten. The strong academic program is proven out in her high practice HSPT scores, along with several others in her class. St. Lawrence offers advanced math, sports, community involvement projects, tech club and other activities in a faith based environment. Great teachers who care about their students and encourage them to be high achievers. Sorry to the person who didn't like their child's 4th grade teacher, we thought he rocked!"

    "The school has a great sense of community as the older students look out and help the younger students. The teachers up until the second grade were amazing and nurturing. However, there is a lack of focus on basic and fundamental education. The third and fourth grade teachers are horrible and have antiquated teaching methods if any at all. The fourth grade teacher who should either retire or be forced to retire gives students hours of homework (until 9:30 pm) and only grades based on test scores, not giving credit to all the time and effort the child has spent on class work and homework. For a school that charges a tuition I would expect to the school to have advanced and innovative educators. If you are looking for a school that coaches ALL teachers to set their students up for success then this is not the place for you."
