The school has a great program that has much parent involvment, but the academics are mediocre and the teachers really take preference to those students who are involved in the school athletic programs.

I academic programs are satisfactory. The extracurricular activities are decent. The parental involvement could be better. It would be nice to know that our children are getting a 'Catholic' education, and not merely going through the motions. ALso, the 'clique' issue needs to be addressed. I've known students with low self esteem due to these groups of children who feel that, due to the money their parents may have, that they are better than their peers.

I transfered my child to pope from another school in the area. This has been a tremendous move for us! The staff is very professional and the children at pope are very diciplined! What a great relief!

the classes at pope are fairly decent, they have ap and honors courses and the teachers will do anything to help a student in most cases. there are music and art classes. sports teams are mediocre, soccer and volleyball are very good, football fails to impress. pope has an excellent drama program. the drama students went to a competition and beat dreyfus (a school especially for the gifted in arts). i would not recommend this school to a student who is 'different.'

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.
