Great school. My children have attended St. Lawrence School for several years. We have had a positive experience with everything from the teaching staff to the administration. We love the small school environment were the teachers and principal know every student by name. The education provided has exceeded my expectations.

Horrible school. My child went there and changed because the teachers were to 'busy' it educate. Look at other catolic schools if you want any education for your children.

My children love the school for the sense of small community. The teachers are enthusiastic and fair. The school places value on parental involvement where appropriate. The physical education program, however, is fair. Playing kickball every 'gym' day constitutes recess, not a bona fide physical education program which is very important for a child's development as well.

What a wonderful school for a christian education. No, it is not a perfect school, but it is certainly the school for us. My daughter is a 6th grader, my son a 1st grader. Their experiences here have been very positive. The teachers don't get paid much by comparison, so I know that they are there because they truly want to be and it shows. With less outside influences/distractions, my children are getting a great education.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
