I highly regret sending my son to this school. For starters this school staff has not received the proper education that is supposed to be given to fufil the job. The school has also hired staff members who have abused their own children yet they expect us to intrust our own, There has been a few intructors who have neglected a few students enough to bring someone to observe and the the teaching instructor. the principle himself has pulled on a few kindergarden kids arms and has gotten away with it. In the first grade they do not allow the kids to go to the restroom and if they do choose to they have to sign in a card that after three signatures they have to go to Saturday school and because of this there was a student who had peed and the teachers assistant saw and said that was not her problem that the little boy should remain peed on. With the older students there was also a lot of clothing and shoes to gone missing and no one does anything to get all those accessories back. they also put very little attention academically they see many students struggling and do nothing until summer break comes in and offers tutoring that you have to pay for as well.

My husband and I visited 3 other private schools before visiting St. Catherine. We ended up choosing St. Catherine for our child for many reaseons. The campus is very well kept and clean. After interviewing the principal we were impressed by the manner in which he spoke of the school and the students. He has high regards for the school teachers and students. All students from pre-school to eigth grade are very respectful and extremely well behaved. The school not only focuses on the basic subjects but it also offers computer lab, library, music, sports, and aforeign language class. Students have opportunites, thorught the year, to participate in religious and cultural theater perfomances. They have gone on several field trips to expand their religious and science knowledge. As a parent who's child has attended this school for two years, I highly recommend

My children attened St. Catherines Of Siena until this year the school was so wonderful the past years but this year things just went down. Not enought staff, no computer labs, no library, no PE teacher no 7th grade teacher and the price on tuition is way higher than other schools which is so disappointing cause they dont offer much.

My 6th & 2nd grader have attend St. Catherine's of Siena in Rialto since Pre-school. I am very satisfied with the level of academic excellence expected of and exhibited by the students. The principal, Ms. Diaz, is outstanding. Ms. Diaz was awarded 'Principal of the Year' 2006 - 2007. Having attended public school all my life, I am impressed at how all the teachers know all the students. Ms. Diaz also knows all the students by name!! As a former public school teacher, this is unheard of!! Extracurricular activities are always encouraged. Parents are always invited and encouraged to participate in and out of the classroom. My kids love school. I thank God for St. Catherine's!!

Spiritually and academically superior! My children are nurtured in every aspect of their growth in a loving, caring environment. The teachers and care-givers foster morality, independence, empathy and I hold them in the highest regard. My children are young, and thankfully, will be able to attend this school until they graduate 8th grade. I am grateful to the staff for their leadership, their knowledge and their ability to create in my children the love of learning.

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.
