We stay at St. Matthias because our values are reinforced daily at school; our children are truly cared for, valued, and respected; AND any special needs are addressed through differentiated education so my children can succeed and be the best they can.

“St. Matthias is the perfect fit for our family. You can immediately feel the warmth and enthusiasm by the staff. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers continue to look for new ways to motivate and inspire the children. The sense of faith and Christian values that are constantly being taught to them and shown by the example of everyone here are priceless. We love this community and feel at home here.”

“St. Matthias Parish School truly is a place of excellence. Not only did the faculty and staff fully prepare me academically for high school and beyond, but they genuinely cared about me and nurtured me emotionally and spiritually as well.”
Nick Reppen – St. Matthias Parish School Class of 2006, Pius XI High School Class of 2010

“We choose St. Matthias School because we really wanted our children’s education to be built on a solid Catholic foundation. When we toured the school, we discovered a staff that is very passionate about their jobs and the students they educate. From day one, we have been happy with St. Matthias School. The families we have encountered are very active in their students educational upbringing and spiritual growth. Our children have formed life long friendships and are learning new things everyday. One of the things that I am very impressed with is how our girls have been learning that volunteering their time, treasure and talent is very important. They know how important it is to give back to our school and community and have exhibited this by volunteering at the St. Matthias Parish Festival, participating in the marketing of our school at parades, and helping raise money for the Catholic Soles Walk to benefit our Tuition Angels Program. St. Matthias School is helping them understand this important core value.”

“St. Matthias has a very high educational standard. I’m confident my children will be very well-prepared for their future education endeavors because of the foundation they are receiving at St. Matthias. I chose St. Matthias because of the experience and dedication of the staff, as well and the warm, welcoming atmosphere of the school. I love the learning environment at St. Matthias. I believe my children are receiving the best elementary school education possible in southeastern Wisconsin. I feel so fortunate to have my children attend St. Matthias. In addition to an outstanding education, they have received a strong foundation in faith. The pain of losing a grandparent was lessened because of their faith and understanding of God. The development of their beliefs at a young age is invaluable.”

“Twenty-six years ago I graduated from St. Matthias. With my husband, I toured the school in hopes that it was a similar atmosphere as when I went there. That is to say, quality education updated to compete with other schools, excellent teachers with minds and hearts that guide the children with teachings of God, extracurricular opportunities, and a sense of family. We were very pleased to see that St. Matthias continues to have these things and so much more. We saw and keep seeing high standards in all of these categories with the addition of the wonderful surprise of opportunities to get to know wonderful families as well as reuniting with other alumni who were seeking to give their children what they had when they grew up. My children are getting a quality education, a solid base of friends they care about, and opportunities for them to excel in places where they are discovering their talents. The teachers and staff nurture their growth beyond what we could ask for. Our family is very proud to be a part of the St. Matthias family.”
Lori Shantner – St. Matthias Alum and mother of 2 students

“We like the personal attention that the kids get in the classrooms. We like the smaller class sizes and that the teachers are able to spend more individual time teaching the kids. We also like the expectations that parents get involved with the school. While some may look at this as a burden, we feel that it keeps the connection strong between home and school, and my child can only benefit from that.”
Craig & Ann Becker – Parents of 1 student

“I like the Star Partners and feel cool that the older kids know me and talk to me. I also like the chicken nuggets!”
Maddie Becker – K5 student

“The atmosphere at St. Matthias is so amazing and you can instantly feel it if you step in a classroom. The faculty are so dedicated to the students and put in so much extra time to create a nurturing learning environment. We’re constantly impressed with how proactive teachers are in working with us to challenge our kids as they develop. And the parents at the school are so wonderful. We have grown so close to many of the school families and feel truly blessed to have these new friends.”
