St. Ann welcomed me from the beginning as a part of the family. Everyone has been incredibly helpful, from cleaning the classroom to collaborating with lessons to sending in notes with concerns from home. It is a blessing to work here!

St. Ann's is my second home for me!! It's the best!!!!

'I like St. Ann School because they pay me for working here.' Well, yes, that's true but the real reason I am at St. Ann is that I strongly support Catholic education. Many of the teachers in Catholic schools are competent. They work well with the children and help to bring out the best in them. Catholic school teachers know it is the parents who are paying them and so they feel a greater responsibility to serve the school families by their good teaching.

the teachers are amazing and my nieces love it!

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.
