    "This school has provided an excellent education for all 4 of our children- k -8th grade. We have been very happy with the education- academically, spiritually, and physically. Our oldest two children have already graduated from SOS and they are in honors/accelerated courses in the public high school and doing very well. The SOS middle schoolers do not have to experience all of the outside influences that are ever present in our public schools. 12-14 are delicate ages and the 8th grade graduates leave SOS with confidence to face all that life can throw at them during the high school years. The areas in middle school that were lacking in the past were changed a couple of years ago- specifically, Earth Science was offered in 6th grade at SOS but public learns it in 8th grade so our students were not receiving the credit. Earth Science is an 8th grade subject at our school now. 5 years ago, the Spanish being offered at the school was less than stellar- now some of the students are going directly into Spanish 3 in 9th grade."

    "Fantastic learning environment for my children and a great community of parents and volunteers. Super high level of academics for middle schoolers with great success for those looking to move on to public school academies or local private high schools. And good luck finding a better sports program for elementary schools... that's right elementary schools. My kids are both involved in seasonal sports teams that compete with other area Catholic schools to create a great sense of school identity and passion."

    "Unimpressed by less than stellar academics. This little school was "fine" for K and grade 1 but things went downhill from there. Follows the traditional rote repetition curriculum that parochial schools have been using for decades. A great social shelter for upper middle class kids but if you are seeking strong academics and a dynamic and current administration and staff look elsewhere."

    "My daughter has been at Star of the Sea for 4 years and we have been very pleased with the parent involvement, the teachers & academic program, the athletic opportunities (who knew field hockey was such a big deal for girls?) and esp. the religious traditions that are so much a part of the school. I like that my daughter is experiencing the same kind of school environment I enjoyed, and I esp. like the continuity of having her go from K-8th grade in the same school with the same kids. While the infrastructure of the school is older, it is filled with forward thinking parents, teachers and a principal who is very dedicated to the school's success. Small class size and oceanfront location make it a special, unique place. Who else can say their kids get to run a timed mile down the VB Boardwalk & have Sand Castle Day?"

    "If you are looking for a catholic or christian environment, strong academics, uniforms and understand the importance of K- 8th grade configuration Star of the Sea @ the Virginia Beach oceanfront is for your children. We love the parents and the religious environment. Our children are so strong academically and emotionally. K-8th Grade configuration builds leadership skills. Our Prayer Partner Program between the younger students and the upper classes is one of the stongest and immediate ways to build leaders and allow a child to develop in a safe environment. Your child will be ready for life after K - 8th Grade @ Star of the Sea Catholic School."
