My son is currently in Mrs. Bello's first grade class at Saint Ann Catholic School. We are very pleased. She is challenging, energetic, and so loving. Best decision we've ever made!

St. Ann's provides a safe, caring environment for children. They get a wonderful academic education, great religious/ moral teaching, and lasting relationships that only a close knit school like St. Ann can provide.

My children have attended for the last 13 years. The school in the past has been excellent. They current Principal has run off most of the excellent teachers and the school has continued in a downward spiral. It's a shame that this can happen to a school in a short period of time that has such a rich and long tradition.

We first enrolled our two children when the new campus opened several years ago. We cannot say enough about the quality of education at St. Ann's. Our children are eager to go to school each morning and they love the teachers, staff, and friends there. Also, the tuition is among the most reasonable in the Tennessee Valley for a private education.

Our daughter loves going to school everyday. St. Ann's is the reason, the staff, students and parents are wonderful. We are non-catholic, but the religious background she is learning is a great foundation for her future church life. We are very happy with this school.

We have been extremely pleased with our experience at St. Ann's. Our son has Mrs. Ogle as a K5 teacher. She is caring and encouraging to him and others all the time. She is a wonderful asset to the St. Ann's staff. We look forward to having him there in the future. --Andrea Brown

Saint Ann School provides my children with a wonderful education and a Christian atmosphere. I think the teachers are very caring and hard-working. We wouldn't consider sending our children anywhere else.

We were extremely disappointed. The academics are lacking as well as discipline. Our experience was not good nor recogninized by adminstration. Many problems are ignored and disreguarded. When paying for the best, our family at least expected little respect.

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.
