St. Lawrence O'Toole
We love it here! We had to move our Kindergartener from a public charter school
mid-semester and SLOT has welcomed us with open arms. It is simple and
academically challenging. Aftercare could be more developed, but it is
inexpensive, safe, and the aftercare teachers really care. Mrs. Tasi is everything
a K teacher should be. So kind, loving, and patient. It is apparent that she loves
God and the kids. Mrs. Douthit, the principal, was so welcoming. The parent group
is awesome and raises a lot of money to keep tuition down. Come to an open house,
this school midght be a good fit for you too!
I'm looking for feedback from families who have or have had
children enrolled at St. Lawrence O'Toole in Oakland. Any
information about your experiences there would be appreciated.
Because we left CA in summer of 2007, we had to leave St Lawrence
O'Toole as well, and we miss it! Our child had a great first
year there, and although she's now doing well in a good public
school in our new home, we often talk about how she got such a
nice start to school at SLOT. The school has high academic
standards and is challenging, and is at the same time small and
nurturing, and interested in different key aspects of development
-- not just intellectual, but also emotional, social, and
obviously given the Catholic ID, spiritual.

Any parents of children who attend St. Lawrence O'Toole in
Oakland? I would like to hear what you think of the school.
Our daughter started
school at SLOT this past August, and we
have been extremely happy with our choice. They have high
academic expectations for the students, and also offer a
comfortable and supportive environment in which our daughter is
thriving socially. The school is ethnically diverse and
recognizes diversity in ways beyond that -- i.e. inclusive
langauge about same-sex families etc. I think this place is
quite a find.
happy SLOT parent
