I am a St. Elisabeth alumni and i want to say that this school is wonderful! I have attended this school for nine years, K-8, and it is absolutely a great environment. The teachers are caring, supportive, and understanding with students. It is a small campus but a wonderful thing that all the students know each other. I absolutely love all the amazing memories i made while being here and i am grateful for all the wonderful friends i have made and blessed that i still keep in touch with them even thou we went to different high schools. I have made the best of friends here that i love all so much! This school has outstanding academics and also teaches one about religious studies. I graduated here with the gold cord, part the decathlon team and i got accepted to all my high school choices, excellent academic program! I love my elementary school and i could not imagine to be sent somewhere else. If you are thinking in putting your child in a catholic private school, may St. Elisabeth School be one of your choices because this is a great school!

my child is currently in kinder. I am really disappointed in the school. I'm actually a formal alumni and decided that it would be a good school for my daughter. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The primary teachers seem to be working together which is a good sign that they care about the students. The problem lies on the office staff. They don't communicate well with the families. They don't inform you about the events with advance notice. Sometime my daughter misses out on events cause I don't find out about til that same day or the day before. I asked the school to fill out an magnet application for me and they gave me a hard time. I got interrogated why I was apply to a public school's magnet program. And did I really think that a public school can provide a better education for my daughter. When I go into the office there's hardly anyone there to help me out with any question. At one point I went in to change my home address and was handed a binder with all student's personal information and was told to find my card and change it myself. I don't like the idea that anyone can just open a binder and see my personal info. They need to be more professional.

Moved here from AZ. This school is 1 year behind in curriculum. Very disappointed with Principal. Tuition is too high and principal over charges for parent participation and fund raising. I would not recommend this school to anyone. Public school offers more in education and curriculum.

This school is not pretty, no stretches of g grass for the kids to play, no trees, no fancy facilities. But for the price of tuition(if you heavily volunteer) I feel like me son is getting a great catholic education. His writing has really improved and I love his teacher's as well as the teacher's aide. I always feel informed about what is going on in his classroom adn I think the office workers and principel really bed over backwards to help the parents in whatever way they can.

I Love my daughter's School!!! It's small and everyone knows everybody by their first and last name. Its a great community of Caring Teachers, Staff and Great Parent Volunteers that are so involved with the kids. My daughter has advanced so much in one year.

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.
