St. Gabriel School Alumni
I graduated from Campbellsport High School in 2018 with honors including Magna Cum Laude, National Honor Society, Business National Honor Society, Service Hour Award chords, and as a class representative. I am now attending the University of Wisconsin- Green Bay and Bellin College and plan on graduating in 2022 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Nursing.
St. Gabriel’s provided me with more opportunities than I could’ve ever recognized at the time. The small class size and personal learning environment set me up to succeed as a student all around. I was able to get to know my teachers so well as an elementary school student. Furthermore, I was provided with such a personalized learning experience and the opportunity to thrive where I was already successful.
St. Gabriel allowed me to grow as a child, find success as a student, and learn as much as I could in those short years. St. Gabriel’s truly prepared me for my future education, as a high school, and as a college student. It opened so many doors for me down the road that I never saw coming. I tested out of my first math class in high school and still attribute my success in my mathematics courses today to the accelerated learning path I’ve been on ever since I left St. Gabriel’s. In addition, to the accelerated academics, St. Gabriel’s buried roots of faith deep inside me that helped keep me on God’s path since then. There are so many challenges we face as high schoolers, maturing teens, and now as young adults that I know, I would not have been able to get through if it weren’t for my strong faith in God. St. Gabriel’s made me the person I am today and had an astronomical impact on me not only as a student, but as a follower of God.

I graduated from St. Gabriel school in 2013. I am currently a sophomore studying at the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities, set to graduate in 2021. After my freshman year, I was accepted into the bachelor of science program for architecture, so I am currently majoring in architecture with potential minors in sustainability and interior design. For my major, it is typical to be presenting the newest versions of my work on a daily basis. If I had to explain this to the middle school me, it is similar to giving a PowerPoint presentation every day.
When I was in middle school and even into my early high school years, I absolutely hated public speaking and any kind of presenting. Being able to speak in front of a crowd was a skill that I began to develop during my time at St. Gabe’s through my involvement with forensics, as well as the many presentations I did in middle school. My early exposure to public speaking has helped immensely in being comfortable presenting ideas and designs that I am most proud of.
Furthermore, the support of my teachers at St. Gabe’s helped push me toward finding my voice and boosting my confidence. In addition to academics, St. Gabe’s helped guide my faith life from an early age. This has been extremely beneficial in continuing to value my relationship with Christ in more recent years. Due to the community of faith that St. Gabe’s is so well known for; I have felt confident in my beliefs and been more willing to seek out service opportunities. Here at the U of M, I have been able to get involved with service projects and the campus ministry program.
I am so beyond thankful for my time at St. Gabriel, and I will forever be grateful for my parents and teachers who saw the value in giving me a strong Catholic education.
- Alumni Class of 2013
Our family loves the parish and our children love the school. The school was great before the move as the teachers truly care about each and every student; but now that we are in the new building, it is truly amazing. The new principal makes sure that our Catholic Identity is reflected in all that we do. The small class size allows individual attention for all students. Our children will definitely be well prepared for high school based on our current experience at St. Gabriel Catholic Parish School.
- St. Gabriel School Parishioner & Parent
This is our 9th year at St. Gabriel School. My son began in the fantastic K5 class and graduates from 8th grade this year fully prepared for high school from an academic and social standpoint. My daughter began in the awesome K4 program and will enter 7th grade in the fall, also growing academically and socially. St. Gabriel School is more than just a school, it’s an extended family of experienced, caring, unselfish teachers, other faculty, and a new Principal (as of last year) who has “been there, done that” using her experience, level-head and nurturing qualities to make this school the number one choice for children and families in the area. You MUST see it for yourself. Call to make arrangements.
- Parent of 6th & 8th-grade students
St. Gabriel is such an important part of our family. Our children are 4th generation to go through this school. Our children are so respectful and kind because of the virtues they are taught at St. Gabriel's. The people who send their kids to St. Gabriel's are not just parents, they become family, some of our best friends. We are so lucky to be a part of this parish school, this family.
- Parent of 4th & 3rd-grade students
Even though we are over a month into remote learning, I continue to hear from other parents on how incredible it is that our remote learning has so much structure. Our children are blessed beyond measure to have access to technology for learning and teachers that have gone above and beyond to keep rigor with schedules and connectedness with classmates all while being parents of students themselves.
- Parent of 7th & 8th-grade students
I love how much my daughter loves school, her classmates, and all her teachers. She has a real sense of safety and family when she's at St. Gabriel's. That gives my husband and me so much comfort knowing she's in a wonderful environment that not only she loves, but loves her back.
- Parent of a 4th-grade student
St. Gabriel's is like an extended family to all students and their families. It's the perfect environment to develop positive social-emotional skills, character, leadership skills, and a strong foundation built on faith.
- Parent of K5 & 2nd-grade students
We love the small class sizes. We love how everybody knows everyone's name. We love the family-like feel.
- Parent of K5 & 3rd-grade students
St. Gabriel school community is outstanding. The class sizes are small, but they still have many programs available to enhance the student's education. The teachers/staff go above and beyond to help teach and care for the children. The older kids mentor the younger kids, and all of the kids in the school interact together. I would definitely recommend St Gabe's, my children love our school.
- Parent of 2nd, 5th & 8th-grade students
St. Gabriel School has been a real benefit to my child and my family for the past three years. Why? First of all, my son who currently sits in 5th grade has excelled in the classroom as a student and is beginning his personal relationship with God. The leadership and teaching staff are very strong and provide students the opportunity to succeed. Our teaching staff is professional and compassionate. Due to the wonderful community at St. Gabriel’s school, my family has new strong meaningful relationships with many families. Sending your child/children to St. Gabriel’s school can not only change your child’s life but your family's as well.
- Parent of a 5th-grade student
Very pleased with the K4 program here at St. Gabriel! Our daughter has learned so much and the entire school staff is great. It is a very safe, nurturing learning environment and we’ve had nothing but a positive experience here. Highly recommend!

What can I say about this school and staff that has not already been talked about. We were new to the school this year and have heard about the community atmosphere at St. Gabriel's. From the first day not only did we feel welcomed, but our kids were made to feel as if they have been at the school since kindergarten. Big beautiful rooms do not do the justice of what happens inside these rooms. The teachers ensure they are working with all the kids and teaching lesson plans in different learning styles. This has been extremely successful for my children as it exposes them to the same content but in different ways. The after-school activities are wonderful with a wide variety to choose from. My children have an opportunity to play sports, do forensics or take part in Destination Imagination (DI) and this is only a sampling of extracurricular activities. Father Tim has continually increased the spirituality of my family and brought us all closer to God. Watching my children lead a Mass with their class is extremely special and heartwarming. We could not be happier to of found not only a wonderful school but an extended family that helps us to grow.
- Parent of 3rd & 4th-grade students
Since transferring to St. Gabriel Catholic Parish School two years ago, my children have excelled educationally and socially. The school strongly promotes their Catholic Identity, it is evident in the way that everyone at the school from teachers and staff to students treats each other. A strong faith and a strong education - a perfect combination.
- Parent of 4th & 6th-grade students
Such an amazing faith community that welcomes you in with open arms and wants you to be involved. Our children truly believe they are at the best school ever. They love and care about their classmates and teachers and are proud of their Faith.
- Parent of K5 & 3rd-grade students
The parish and school staff are very friendly and welcoming. The school focuses as much on faith, service, family, and community as it does on education. Our children are well prepared for high school when they graduate due in large part to our caring and dedicated teachers.
