    "The statistics don t lie. We considered St. Leo the Great for our kids because we kept meeting people who d attended credible colleges and universities like Stanford, Cal, and others who said they went to St. Leo. Students at this school have very high percentile rankings on standardized tests, the school has a high percentage of students getting academic scholarships and awards, and they have a very high percentage of students getting into the high schools of their choice and going on to complete college degree programs. We wanted a school culture which supported that level of academic rigor in addition to fostering the social and moral development of our children."

    "I m very impressed with the academic rigor and sense of community at St. Leo the Great in Oakland. My son scores very high on the standardized testing and his teachers have always been innovative - to keep the curriculum interesting and challenging for students. Most importantly, students are taught to respect themselves and each other. I've visited many elementary schools and have never seen another school which provides so many supplemental learning opportunities and teaches students such a high degree of moral development, integrity, and leadership. We've been a part of St. Leo s community for over 5 years."

    "I'm very happy with my choice to send my children to this school. The principal leadership is beyond excellent, there is a strong sense of being a part of an inclusive community, the curriculum promotes academic rigor, the staff is diverse, it's in a safe and clean neighborhood, and children are taught self-respect and community service. I could say lots more that I love about this school but wanted to keep this review brief!"

    "I am honored to recommend the School of St. Leo the Great to any parent who is looking for a caring environment that fosters academic excellence, respect for one another and values the importance of a well balanced curriculum inclusive of the arts and sports. Both of my children attended this school and it was an extremely valuable and rich learning experience for both of them. St. Leo's fully prepared them for the high school of their choice and both children went on to attend their first choice colleges. The strength of any great institution is rooted in its leadership and this school's principal is one of the finest and most committed and dynamic principals I have ever known. Her interest in the whole child, her mantra of inclusion, encouragement and anti-bullying at the school make this school one of the best in Oakland. I have returned to the school as a former parent to conduct in-service sessions with the students and faculty and it has been a pleasure to engage with students who are so well behaved and respectful of adults. Looking for a great school, check it out!"
