This is an excellent Catholic School. Principal is a firm and qualified leader and she even helps lead the choir! Teachers are all very dedicated, fine arts, sports, academic decathlon - everything is here. Great parents, wonderful kids.

This is our first year at this school and our daughter is in Kindergarten. I have been impressed with every aspect of this school. I think we found our perfect match. The level of parental involvement is excellent. It feels like a true community. The children are challenged. Academics are excellent, teachers are great, extracurricular activites...again outstanding. Small class sizes and one class per grade yet all it does not prevent them from offering great programs. A must see!

I have been so impressed with the willingness of the parents to help out with whatever is needed around the school. And the teachers are great with the kids. They really do try to do whatever is best for the students, and are in constant communication with the parents to help solve any occurring or potential problems they see. I just love the sense of community that I feel there.

I absolutely love SJE. I was nervous putting my son in the transitional kindergarten program but I am so glad I did. He is now going into fisrt grade and is reading above his grade level. All of the kids know each other and the older ones look out for the little ones. It is nice having the older ones paired up the the little ones for church and other activities.

Great school! One of the best foundations in Catholic teaching and christian community in the area. This unassuming school also offers excellent academic enrichment in math, science, music, art and all fine arts. Teachers are dedicated and very concerned with students. Families are all very welcoming and inclusive. Strong leadership from the principal and we feel tuition is well invested in bettering the school. Our children do extremely well here, which was not our experience at their previous Catholic school.

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.
