I cannot say enough about Epiphany. The staff was excellant. They really worked hard to address the needs of the whole child. Although Catholic schools don't have the budget that public schools do, they addressed issues such as vision & hearing, counseling,& extra help (tutoring). The samll class size lends itself to extra help for the student. I felt that the staff truly cared about the students & worked hard to get the best from the students.

I am a parent and alumni and Epiphany has helped my children to strive better in their goals as students and have taught my children values that they take with them throughout life. Epiphany has made a difference in my life and wanted no more than the same for my children. Epiphany is a magical place that has had plenty of professional, well educated and successful young men and women graduate to continue a striving and promising future. I am the oldest out of 4 siblings and my siblings and I had the fortunate opportunity with of course the sacrifice of my parents to attend Epiphany and become Alumni of our Alma Mater. Epiphany has changed my life and will always have a special place in my heart as well as the wonderful staff that I had the pleasure of encountering and would forever recommend!

I am a parent and I am very proud to send my youngest daughter to this school. The teachers at Epiphany School really have pride in teaching, they are dedicated and challenge the kids to succeed. The school has a strong academic curriculum as well as a spiritual reinforcement which our kids need in this modern world. The Principal and all her staff are all committed to quality education. The school also offers music to all grades. My oldest daughter graduated from this school and was accepted at a vey fine High School. I feel so proud to be part of Epiphany.I've been involved as part of different committees in the school for the last two years. Epiphany is like a family !!!

We have been really pleased with this school. My oldest child has been here since PK-3 and by the time she got out of kindergarten she was already reading. Now she is in 3rd grade and she is a straight 'A' student. Her terra Nova scores for 1st and 2nd grade, have always been above average. My other child also started since PK3 and now she is on PK4 she recognizes her alphabet and she cant wait to start reading. What I also love about the school is that they are also learning our religion.

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.
