I wouldn't send my kids to this school...The kids are mean and tease each other, they throw trash all over the place and are so noisy and disrespectful! Some of the teacher's aids can barely communicate in English. The police department has to get involved in the noise and trash problems. This is a Catholic what are they teaching those kids? Not about the environment and basic respect.

I have two children attending this and third on her way next year. I would not want them in any other school at this. The teachers, staff and Religius atmosphere are great. My children love their school.

I really like this school, religion is a big part of my family and we want to keep it that way, there are areas that need improvement, such as extra curricular activities and more focus on other languages, it would be great to be able to have a program that encourages kids to learn more than the required academic program. I think that it would be wise to have an art and music program to develop other skills in our children. Parent involvement could be better.

Coming to St. Cornelius School was the best thing my daughter ever did! She started in Middle school where the academic curriculum was strong, the teachers caring and involved with the students and the students welcoming and accepting. After school sports and various other activities kept her very busy in the afternoon. I highly recommend this school.

I am a parent of a child who has attending this school since K and I have grown very unhappy with the school's academic program and the lack of communication between the teachers and parents, so much so that I am taking my daughter out of this school. I am very disappointed in the lack of leadership from the principal to the after school program. I would not recommend this school!

As a parent of a St. Cornelius School student, I definitely believe that the quality of academic programs that my son receives is superior to the quality of programs provided by the public school district in our area. I would like to see more extracurricular activities (i.e. piano, violin, chorus, soccer, softball, drama, et cetera). In addition to the extracurricular activities, it would be nice for a second language to be a part of the core courses (i.e. French, Spanish, or other). The level of parent involvement is high but not necessarily evenly distributed, which I believe is the norm for most schools.

Its a good school, but lacks in diversity and control over the students. English is a subject in which they have to work in. Science is a subject that the 8th grade teacher is able to teach the students very well. The bad thing about this school is that they have no extra curricular activities that interest the students, and sports teams are not a big thing there.

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.
