My daughters attend Mission Dolores and they love going to school every day. The school is one big family. Thanks to the teachers at Mission Dolores, my oldest daughter knows that she can accomplish any goal in life if she works hard enough. There's a group of parents very committed to not just helping their children but also their children's classmates. They have a great sports program, choir, and a decatlon team.

The kindergarten teacher is wonderful. Kids are writing their own book reports by the end of the year! Class size does not exceed 23 kids and there are two teachers aides.

Highly Reccomended. The caring teachers and staff provide a welcoming environment for students. The parent community is very active in schoool events and fundraising. The curriculum is academically challenging. And there is a well utilized sports program. Our family was very happy at MD. Go Tigers!

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.
