We have been at SVDP for 2 years and are very much impressed with the school, teachers, and principal. This school challenges the children and I know my son will be well prepared for high school because of the curriculum and pursuit of excellence by all involved in the decision making of the school.

this is the best school in the world. we learn about our faith and have great sports teams. we also hav very energetic and fun teachers and we learn alot. the elemantary school is kept separate from the middle school so that they can have different learning environments and priveleges so as they progress in throught the years at st.vincent they have something to look forward to as they get into the older grades. in second grade the students make their first communion and reconciliation. the principal is a great leader and gives the students any privelges but has many strict rules about these priveleges. over-all this school is very good and is a great place for children to learn as well as hav fun while they are doing it.

Under the guidance of the Dominican Sisters of Nashville and a superb caring, dedicated staff, SVDP is by far one of the finest schools in the Denver area. Having had a past student currently in a private HS and a present student, I can attest to the fact that the students are treated fairly and respectfully, receive compentent academic training to excell, supported to respect self and others, respected for their individuality, value and moral driven teaching and are disciplined with love. Self esteem and developement of the 'total' person is the goal. A real value for your time and money.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
