Come see the big impact made by our small class sizes, inclusive values, and innovative teaching methods.

This fund, named in honor of retired Principal Frank English supports our goal of continuing to provide personalized, high-quality care for the needs of our students in our inclusion program.
As a community, St. Barts fosters and celebrates Christian values-- instilling in our students the importance of character, integrity, service and compassion-- all of which Mr. English demonstrated with great consistency and tenacity. We hope that you will consider making a gift this October in honor of Mr. English's birthday and Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
