I am a parent of 3 children who currently attend St. Dominic Catholic School (5th, K, & PreK3). My oldest attended public school during kindergarten and 1st grade, and while the academics were good, we were missing the community aspect of the school experience. We decided to move to St. Dominic when my oldest began 2nd grade, and we have been so pleased with the decision. The teachers who have taught my children have been excellent, and I have found them to have high standards in the classroom, which I appreciate. I have also found the principal, Mrs. Mathias, to care very deeply for the children and their success. Extra programs at the school include art, music, Spanish, computer, library, and band (5th grade and up). Children attend recess and PE each day, and Mass on Fridays. An excellent after school care program is also offered for all grades (including preschool), which was a must for our family since we are both working parents.

I have two children that attend St. Dominic School, one in PreK4 and one in First Grade. I have found St. Dominic's to be a wonderful learning environment for my children. They have up to date facilities with modern technology, and first rate faculty and administrators. There is a new early learning center that is exceptional. They have a long tradition of placing high standards on academics and religious education, but also offer many extracurricular activities to include CYO sports, band, cheerleading, etc. I would highly recommend St. Dominic's as a top choice for any parent looking for a well balanced education that includes teaching religious values.

We have 3 children that go to St. Dominics. They had previously gone to both private and public schools in Florida, and we feel like St. Dominic provides a better learning atmophere than other schools they attended. The facilities are great. The community is close knit, and parental participation is outstanding. The kids really love the school.

We had three children graduate from St. Dominic and we found that they were well prepared for high school. Combining spiritual development with academics, St. Dominic provides an excellent atmosphere for becoming a rounded individual. Parents and parishoners support the school financially as well as in volunteering time. I highly recommend St. Dominic School to help parents with educating their children in the formative years.

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.
