St. Elizabeth is a wonderful school. There is also a family enviroment here. The academic programs are awesome. They are programs that are preparing them to succed in college. There could be more extracurricular activities for the students. This school is located in a area that is filled with crime so its so important to keep our kids involved in something positive even after normal school hours. Other than that academically this school is exceptional.

My daughter is a sophmore. Like the size of the school and classes. Most teachers are innovative and creative with subject matter. I am happy with the academics, daughter is A student. Student Athletes have support but the Administration is a bit behind the times. Kids are from all socio-economic levels.

St.Elizabeth (grades 9-12), located in Oakland, CA provides a good sound education. Honored as an 'exemplary school', the student population (approx. 250) is small and closely knit. A sense of 'family' is evident on the campus. The administration, faculty and staff utilize a 'hands on' approach in administration and teaching. Many alumni enter the teaching field. Upon college graduation, many return to St. Elizabeth's as administrators or teachers. A very good academic environment. Advanced Placement (AP)classes are available. A variety of extracurricular and sporting activities are available to students. Sudents are expected to perform at their maximum potential. Upon graduation, the majority of students pursue either a 2 (an associate's) or 4 year (BA/BS)degrees. If you are looking for a school with good academic staandards and a loving and caring teaching environment where students can reach their academic and personal goals with complete administrative support, then St. Elizabeth's is the place to be.

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.
