Develops character: Strongly agree

Students at SV are required to do community service each year, but beyond that, as a parent who has worked in the kitchen, I have found the students to be very respectful. And, because there is a dress code (not a uniform), students are always appropriately dressed.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The school is small enough that the teachers know each student. Each day includes a "tutorial" period where the students can check in with teachers if they have a question or in need of help. Teachers and students work together toward success.


Amount of homework: Agree

For the most part I have found that the homework given at SV allows the student to master the concept and prepare for the test but not so much that it is overwhelming and I have rarely, if ever, thought that the homework was "busy work" or unnecessary. My son just started college and feels well prepared.

Because SV is a small school, both my son and daughter have had the chance to experience so many new things including Track/Cross Country, Jazz Band, Cheer and Leadership. The teachers know each student and work with them as a team to achieve their goals. Safe campus. Great community.

My child loved being a part of SV. Academics are top notch and they have a well run athletic dept. The campus provides a very safe environment.

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.




- a
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.
