My child attended St. Anne for K to 8. The school subsequently added a pre-school. All of the teachers were credentialed, with many of them having advanced college degrees. Although my child certainly had her favorite teachers, we thought all of them were very dedicated to their jobs and students, and were well qualified. We have no regrets about sending our child to St. Anne.

My child attends here, and I can tell you the academics programs are stellar. The school is about 3/4 asian and 1/4 caucasion. I do wish they were a bit more diverse, but it still is one of the best catholic schools, with high test scores in the city. Low class size too. Kindergarten classes are at 22 students with 2 teachers per class. The kids test very well here. Teachers demand excellence and most if not all students seem to love it here. Hidden gem, but not so much anymore.

excellent curriculum. Best in building a great academic foundation. The students are respectable and the teachers are great. They are strict but they are also fun. The children are happy here because the St. Anne school community is strong.

My children have been well educated here at St. Anne. They have a very strong Jr. High and the teachers are terrific. Mrs. Meek and Ms. Ferrari are wonderful and caring teachers. Sr. Rosan is an excellent English teacher with so many wonderful ideas. This school also has a resource teacher by the name of Claudine Hallisy. She is a very caring teacher and has helped my child tremendously with algebra. Parents and students respect and love all the teachers and are grateful to them for all they have done.

My son is graduating this year and St. Anne's has been a great experience ! The jr. high teachers all strive to make your child the best they can be and the kids are very prepared to move on to high school. The jr. high teachers are very supportive in every way. These 4 teachers run like a well oiled machine !

There are a lot of great qualities in this school. The teachers, staff, principal, and their overall pholosophy are well established over the years of experience. The dedication of the parents and the continuous education opportunity given by the principal to his teachers are just the best. The school's pholosophy is whole child first with a little more emphasis in academics. Some teachers may seem old school on the apparence, and, I don't agree with the previous comment. In my child's class, the whole class was given the chance to take out the trash on rotating basis. I thought this was a great way for my child to learn to become a responsible, helpful, (no matter how small or dirty the chore is.) and down to earth person.

The resource teachers at St. Anne are excellent. Claudine Hallisy and Sister Katie are kind to the students they work with and go to great lengths to see that their students get the professional help they need. St. Anne's students are lucky to have them.

St. Anne's has an excellent English program. The teachers are very well versed in this department. The social studies, math, and science curriculum is excellent as well. The only drawback is that some teachers have a very 'old school' way of disciplining kids (i.e. writing 100 sentences of the same line, or picking up trash outside, etc.)

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.
