TESTIMONIALS ABOUT ST. HERMAN SCHOOL

 

  •     "St. Herman's is a wonderful school....I've never seen a group of children so absorbed in a class as the group who were listening to their teacher read from Great Expectations...I'm impressed by St. Herman School's commitment to teaching virtue and good habits of character. I wish I had known about it before I wrote my book on moral education [Why Johnny Can't Tell Right from Wrong]. St. Herman's  would have been my prime example of the right way to do things."

  •     "The students coming to LCA from St. Herman School were among our very best: they were notably bright and inquisitive, creative, diligent and self-disciplined, with a sold base of knowledge and strong intellectual ability. [They were] considerate of others, helpful, constructive, happy, enthusiastic, utterly dependable, and solidly grounded in their faith."

  •     "My dear wonderful friends-thank you for helping Anya! You gave Anya a good education. She speaks English fluently now, she is interested in every subject, and there is not a single person in your school with whom she would not like to meet again."

  • "My special time with Class II drafting essays, researching states, brainstorming representative costumes and presenting ideas was the highlight of my semester! I felt so encouraged to see young people respect and exhort one another to succeed, but with the larger context of community. I saw them cooperate and complement each other - two girls explained to me that ''they work well together because they have opposite strenghts...as opposed to weaknesses!'' I found the experience delightful and I wanted to tell you how impressed  I was with their ability to focus, follow directions and most of all, to work together to ensure that everyone was able to finish together and cheer as a group. Thank you for that blessing!"
