This was my first year at this school and I found it to be a wonderful experience for my children. I have been at other schools, and have not experienced the warmth and family atmosphere that exists in this school. I am pleased with the education my children are receiving and feel that teachers and the principal are very approachable and willing to offer assistance to me.

This is the best school in Broward county. We maintain a high excellence in academics from PK through 8th grade. We are one of the rare schools with a very stable faculty who have been with the school on the average for eight years. We have the highest scores on Accelerated Reader. We are accredited and have received praises from the Florida Catholic Conference. We are a small school family where everyone knows one another. We have improved each year and continue to add new students and families to our school community!

St. Malachy is a great school. The teachers are very qualified and enjoy what they are doing. The principal is fully involved in all aspects of the school, and stresses parental involvement. My children enjoy the school and have had a great overall experience. My only problem with the school is the gossip in the parking lots after morning prayer by those parents who are bitter.

The leadership of the principal is of poor quality. The quality of the education has deteriorated as they are not keeping up to dates with materials and equipment. Overall my children had a bad experience. Some not all of the teacher were mean.

This school did not prepare us enough for high school. Another thing that was not great about the school was the principal.

While the school has consistently outstanding academic results, sending essentially all its graduates on to private secondary schools, the real strength is the atmosphere. St. Malachy provides a very secure, positive and healthy environment in which to provide a child education. There is a also a fairly broad range of extracurricular activities, and the school has done extremely well in athletic and academic competitions with other area schools. All in all, as a parent, I am very pleased.

We have two children at this school one from pre-k and is now in 4th the other from K and is now in 5th. It is a family oriented school. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the classroom as well as fundraisers and school functions. The Principle has an open door policy and has never turned anyone away. Teachers teach with passion. I do recommend this school. Discipline is also a priority as well as safety for the students.

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 student 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.
