St Vincent De Paul School (1164 South Josephine Street) Comment
I have four children and have been t St. Vincent parent for 10 years now. All my children started from Pre-K age. When we were looking at schools, my husband wanted an education like he had which was Catholic school in the Midwest. I on the other hand, grew up in Latin America and attended a non-religious school so I was a bit hesitant about Catholic education. I can now say I am really happy we made this choice! St. Vincent teaches the child on both fronts: academically while taking care of their wholesomeness as a person. The education level at SVDP is so good my daughter was accepted into Kent on 6th grade. Then, my son followed. SVDP feeds into some of the best schools in Denver because of their academic level, this was one of my worries when it all started. After a year and a half she actually decided to return to SVDP because she missed her friends which says a lot about the peer dynamic created at SVDP (and they are 12!). Kids are still kids at SVDP. There is no question in my mind that we made the best choice in Denver. I looked around the other Catholic options, but I loved that this school had nuns. Unlike what some people fear nuns might be like, they bring so much grace and kindness to the kids! They personally validate what they teach by modelling, making it coherent for the kids. I am glad we got into SVDP, speaking to other parents who ended up in other schools I realize how lucky we are.
