St Matha is one of the best schools in the area. I sent my children there and now they both graduated from very nice universities, I could see that St Martha was really a good start for them. After I see what other family members turn out to do onces they finish public school high school I feel that it is the best sacrifice I did in my life for my childen. Thank your St Martha for working together with me on my children's education.

This school is like our second family. My oldest graduated from St. Martha and had an exceptional experience. My youngest is in their new TK class and Great school, great teachers and faculty. They offer after school sports, and various clubs. The school recently updated their technology and continue to set goals for improvement.

They are opening a new Kindergarten room. We are excited to see the innovative resources. The classroom will have a Smartboard, and classroom computers. Technology is the future and this school is going above and beyond. -My older son also attends this school and I can not ask for anything more. The academics and the support of the teachers are just amazing.

My son loves the school. It teaches my son so well that both my husband and I are amazed. Apart from academics, it also teaches my son the right values and how to respect his parents, love his family and care for others. My son is a very gentle and nice young guy under the guidance of its principal, teachers and all the staff. we all support St. Martha's! Continue your great job! We highly recommend you to everybody!

Great School. Very good with history. There's a math club in the school. Lot of activities to do. The school has a very good sports. They have many trophies in the school. Former students come back here and say hi. The teachers are funny.

I support this school with enthusiasm. I expect that those who feel that parents are involved and participate with eagerness in their childnren's education seems 'busy body', however there is no other way to ensure your child's success if you do not participate as much as possible with your child's school. My daughter is confident, secure, and feels encouraged by the teachers and staff at the school. Without such a tight knit school, she would be lost. This is exactly what I was looking for in a school and I can't wait to send my little one there.

I was very disappointed in this school. The pricipals attiude was horrid. This school was the worst possible experience for my child. Busy body parents, Catholic Schools are famous for them,get prefrence,education system was mediocre at best and the school never improves the classrooms or the outdoor area and lets not forget the overcrowded classes. I truly felt that the principal did not have my childs best interest in mind. Leaving St. Marthas was the best decision I ever made . I am not an angry or bitter parent, I just feel that society as a whole has changed and it's sad to see that even parochial schools are now infected with this awful cancer of greed and unkindness towards one another.

My daughters like going to this school. They have a lot of intresting days. Like International Day, Catholic schools week, Health Fair, Book Fair, and many more. They have checkups for children like checking their eyesight and ITBIS Testing. I recommend this school for you.

St. Martha's School strives to provide the students with good academic curriculum, sports activities, moral values. The cost of sending a child to this school is very reasonable compared to other catholic schools. The faculty and staff are very involved in the students growth and development and keeps the parents well informed of their progress. This is my 8th year with St. Martha and I am very pleased with the camaraderie between the teachers, faculty and parents.

Good school. They emphasize on good moral values and education at the same time. Parent involvement is highly encouraged to promote family values.

This is a very bad school. They charge lots of money for children to go there, and the school never gets improved. Most teachers and the principal seem as if they dont know what they are doing. This is a horrible school, avoid it at all costs!!

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.

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.
