We are looking to send our son to Kindergarten and are having trouble getting schools rated. For instance on this website certain private or Cathiloc schools have no rating. What does this mean and how do I get info on those schools?

Hi ThomasKosiba, and welcome to GreatSchools Parent Community.

School ratings are based on state-administered tests, which are required by public schools and not mandatory for private or parochial schools. So there's no way to compare those standards.

Even so, the rating is just one measure of a school's success.

You can read the parent reviews and look at other information online. And when you tour, you can ask about which standardized tests they might take, where the students matriculate to, and how well they do.
