Although this blog is sponsored by our partners at Bishop Leibold School, the words of this guest contributor our completely authentic and a true reflection of her experiences with the school.


Bishop Leibold School






Thinking about your child/children’s future can be a scary thing especially when deciding what school would be the right fit for them. We have been fortunate enough to find a school that has grown our children’s faith while also helping us build a community that feels like family! 

I was introduced to Bishop Leibold School during an open house by my brother 7 years ago. When I first walked in with my soon to be preschooler, it felt like we were right at home. The atmosphere was so inviting and welcoming. The principal, teachers and parent ambassadors were friendly and ready to answer any questions I had. My 4-year-old son at the time was so excited to visit the preschool room. Watching him interact with the other children that were visiting as well as how comfortable he felt talking with the teacher, I knew this would be a great fit for him. Fast forward 7 years, he is now a 4th grader at Bishop Leibold. My middle son is in 1st grade and my youngest will be starting preschool in the fall.

Throughout my children’s journey at Bishop Leibold, they have flourished with not only their academic knowledge but are also learning more about what it means to be Catholic. They are consistently being challenged and met at their level by receiving quality instruction. They continue to amaze me with the accomplishments they are achieving. The teachers have always been a huge part in the learning success of my children. My oldest son has enjoyed being a part of the STEM camp/club, playing soccer, basketball and running track. My middle son is looking forward to running track in the spring and playing soccer in the fall.

Both my sons have made the kindest and most thoughtful friends. Families have become friends and we are incredibly thankful for that! Not only have our children grown in their faith at Bishop Leibold School but they are receiving excellent education as well!
