Terrible!!! This school should have closed down ages ago. The principal left halfway through the school year when my son attended. Ms Janine was clearly intoxicated on the first day of school. The teachers seemed uninterested about my child. The hot lunches even gave my son diarrhea on more than one occasion. When I heard they were raising tuition in an effort to stay open...I almost gagged. I felt ripped off paying for my child to even attend that dump. The archdiocese should go by for a visit. I am sure they will agree that St Florian is LONG overdue for a bulldozer!!!

My child had to transfer out of the school because of the kids. Before you get all attitudy, there is NOTHING wrong with her. She is a bright young lady, and gets along well with others. But for some strange reason, the kids were very rude to her. I had to call off work and talk to the principle to dicuss this matter. I am sorry, but i do not recremend this school at all! This has also happened to close family members and friends.

My family loves this school based on its academic curriculum and teacher student ratio. Our children feel safe in and around the school. Teachers demonstrate their kindness through individual family attention. I can't see my children attending any other school.

St Florian School has been serving the community of Hegewisch for almost 100 years. It is not uncommon for the same family to graduate four or five generations from the school. Besides having an active sports program, the school excels in its catholic traditions and religious education. A small class size helps to maintain the highest level of scholarship. While other Catholic elementary schools are dropping in enrollment, St. Florian's enrollment numbers continue to increase. The school has exceptional parental involvement. The Parish community also is very active in school activities creating a warm family environment. The addition of the new principal, Terry McKenna along with the continued efforts of Father Jim has resulted in a strong cohesive parish school.

I think that St Florian is a great school and I can see how the Faculty works hard and really cares about all the Students in the School. I am amazed at how many students are excited about going to school.

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.

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.
