The school facility is in a safe, beautiful and peaceful environment. It has a well-rounded curriculum. The important thing is that our daughter loves the Sister who is also the teacher of her class, the support staffs, and the after-school care staffs. They are all loving, kind and professional. She looks forward to school everyday. We are amazed at the level of academics my daughter is achieving so far. The communication, and social skills have also improved remarkably. We also love to see her improvement in speech/public speaking as she presents her book in front of her classmates every Thursday. We're very glad that my daughter is in great hands.

Dominican Kindergarten (DK) has a well-rounded curriculum. We are very impressed with the school's academic and non-academic standard. This is evident with our child's ability to read and comprehend, grasp math concepts, understand the world of science, know current events, learn English & Spanish, enjoy music, appreciate arts and be physically fit --- learning all of these while having so much fun! Best of all, DK consistently instills Christian values --- self-discipline & respect to name a few --- among the children while inspiring them to be life-long learners. We highly recommend this feeder school to St. Joseph if you are looking for a program that is academically rich, socially responsible and fun! It is excellence at its best!

Great teachers, parents, staff, and safe location. The new reading program is incredible, fun and strong in phonics, phonemes, sight words and vocabulary. Learning centers extend the learning in small groups with more individual attention. Computers, Spanish, music, singing and much more help the kids get good foundation. The Catholic Christian life learning is the foundation of creating good, responsible, independent kids who have loving parents. We have a great community always sharing and helping in the class in many ways.

" I am very happy with the education and catholic guidance my daughter is receiving. She is learning not only the math and english concepts but most important to be a better community involved person in a happy environment. Her progress in this year has amazed me!"

Kindergarten is amazing. Our child is blossoming under the gentle teachers. We are so glad that we can volunteer in several aspects. We are looking forward to a year of growth in both academics as well as in the social arena ... Then on to St. Joseph School!!

Great academic program. Feeder school to St Joseph's K-8 school. Located on same campus. Music, art, computers and sign language taught. As well as mentoring of the youngsters by the older kids. My son and I loved this school. Big parent involvement.

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.
