Excellent school. Prepared staff. Safe campus. Great kids. Opportunities to excel, and, for some, receive extra support. My son looks forward to learning EVERY day. A gem of a school.

St. Vincent's High School is an outstanding community school. The staff and administration are remarkably friendly and accessible, and the curriculum is admirably rigorous. The debate team is nationally renowned, and the sports and extra-curricular programs are fun and popular. It's a small school with a lot of energy and an atmosphere of great creativity.

St. Vincent's is a unique school because of it's student size and the interest the faculty shows towards the students. It is certainly college prep and rigorous academically. My children all went on to graduate from major universities. They did play sports at SVHS. The only teams without JV or frosh teams are boys and girls soccer. We found the speech and debate program tremendously beneficial to students who participate. Parent involvement is very high because part of the program mandates every family must serve 30 hours per year at some school activities. This was easy as driving a group of students to a game or speech tournament counts.

It has been a disappointment that St. Vincent sports program is so limited, no room for freshman, my daughter thrives in sports, St. Vincent only has varsity teams, to get in is a very slight chance,for the cost of there education every student should have the opportunity to participate in sports, unfortunately this is not the case at St.V.

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.
