It was better when it was a private school. The rules are just way too strict now and really unnecessary. You can get a detention way too easily which doesn't help when it comes to your record. Also, on out of uniform days, you can only change your shirt because they don't want them to wear really inappropriate bottoms. They act as though they can't restrict the type of bottoms like they restrict the type pf shirts which makes no sense at all.

This is an excellent school I must say, my daughter attends this school and we are very pleased. The school offers so much, helps and is going to get the job done. Your daughter will be ready for college in no time, and she will also be a respected, respectful young lady with morals and class.

The school provides an excellent education program that allows the girls to get college credit. It's diverse so the girls grow in a cultural setting. The tuition is realistic especially, when the economy is so bad, it includes books, fees, everything.

Maria is the right place to have your young lady excel academically, spiritually and emotionally. It has a faculty and staff that truly care what happens to your daughter

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.

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 »
