I attend our lady of Fatima and I do not like it any more. At first the school was ok but then it began to hit me, I started to wonder why if this is a catholic school why are their fights breaking out every day. That is not even the worst part our lunches are horrible and for the most part the teachers are ok,but i think they can do better. If we are trying to type a paper we can't because either the computer is down or the printer does not work. We should not make everything strictly about school. We should go on field trips and make school fun. To be honest my favorite part of school is mass. I am not saying it is a bad school, but it needs a couple of major tweaks.

Wonderful choice for my family. Affordable tuition. The kids love to go to school. Very experienced teachers. The academics are advanced for those who can handle it and less strenuous for those who need it. They offer turtoring and extracaricular activities at low or no cost. A smaller setting which is a positive.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
