Teachers are not only highly educated and competent, but they are extremely committed to the students. Excellent school. One of a kind.

I am not a parent and did substitute teaching at the school for two days. I found the students in grades 6 to 8 respectful and well rounded in the Language Arts which are the areas that I did substitute teaching. I was impressed on how well they performed academically. It was evident to me that the teachers have been working hard in the area of academics. I found that the teachers that I did meet treated their students with respect. Thank you! Sister Eleanor M. Ortega, CSJ teacher and former principal

I am a parent at Dolores Mission School, throughout the seven years that my daughter has been at the school, I have never encounter such incompetence in a school system. The adminstration and staff are illequiped to handle the needs of children in this present age. The school lacks training in conflict resolution, and dealing with the needs of special education. The school touts family values and child enrichment without fullfilling this promisses.

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.
