Academically I am satisfied but I had some serious issues with the school. My wife sent in payments for pizza day. we did not pack lunches for the kids that day. my son was told that he did not pay and could not have any. My son was told to eat what his mom packed for him. My son told them that he did not bring a lunch. No one offered to give him pizza and bill me the $2.00 later. No one called me or my wife to say "hey bring something for your son to eat". Instead the staff allowed my son to go the entire day without eating. When we complained their answer was to offer to credit us the money for the pizza. Allowing a child to go hungry for a day is unforgivable. I will never re-enroll my child in this school. What they did was disgracefull and the only reason that I didnt pull them out of school the next day was because I did not want to disrupt the continuity of their education.

Excellent school. Have two children enrolled in this school. My kids love it. Great teachers! Classes are small, less then 20 per classroom. Athletic teams in soccer, basketball and volleyball. Great after school activities.

I have a daughter that is currently enrolled in the school, since she was in pre k, over the years she has excelled in all her classes. I thank all the teachers and princible and staff for all your hard work. this is a school that I will highly recommend to enroll your child in. the parents at this school are very involved with the school and other parents. queen of the universe is by far the best school that my wife and I chose.

I expected more from this school considering everything I've heard. I believe that things change with the new administration. I'm not really happy or sad with this school. It is another form of public school except you have to pay to go here. The class rooms are very large which is a misconception that private schools give having you to believe that their classess are smaller. They have the same issues and cps. Overcrowding is an issue and they don't turn people away now that they except funding from the state.

Almost all the teachers are old and do not have patience to teach anymore. Seems like the passion of teaching has left their hearts! Over all the children's bad behavior is distracting for the ones that want to learn.

This provate school provides quality religious education to my children. Small size of the school also let parents get involved. Compared to the oublic schools in the area, the academic programs are better. Sports programs are enjoyable for the children. The coaches are flexible with working parents schedules. There is also band and art classes which the children rave about.

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.
