St. Eugene School is absolutely wonderful! I agree with the other ratings that Dr. Brown is a great leader for the school and is very concerned about the education of each of her students. Parent involvement is also great with many Family Fun Nights throughout the year, as well as activities in each grade that are ongoing. The teachers and the students take pride in the school and what they do, and this is very apparent. My daughter was having a hard time with pre-school and the teacher was very patient and tried different ways to get her engaged in the class. Now, my daughter loves going to school. My son just made his communion and it was a beautiful ceremony. I highly recomment St. Eugene School to anyone looking to give their child a qualit Catholic education.

I love St. Eugene, it is a warm environment and the pre-school and pre-k teachers are the best!

The academic program is a great challange for the students of each grade. They have a nice art and music program and do a wonderful Christmas performance every year. They have now added a DRAMA class. I would say parent involvement in any school needs a bit of help but overall here we usually have no trouble covering things that need to be done.

St. Eugene is a terrific program for all ages. The teachers and administration are a direct reflection of the students and parents of the school. Dr. Brown is an excellent principle with a clear direction of where the school is going. I have two boys currently enrolled at St. Eugene and they absolutely love the program. I am also an alumni of the school and from personal experience, highly suggest St. Eugene School. There are significant differences in the type of education my children are receiving versus other schools in the area. The parent involvement level is great and any time donated to the school is truly worth every minute. I highly suggest the school, the curriculum and the administration to anyone looking to send their children to a top school.

Dr. Brown, our principal, is a wonderful leader for our school. I have found her to be helpful and concerned for the welfare of my children in every situation and I highly reccommend every parent get to know her better. I have had an excellent experience with St. Eugene school as a whole. I do believe the parents need to become more involved in school activies to be good role models for the children and to feel like part of the St. Eugene community. Our school needs the help of every parent in supporting the fundraisers to helping out with the FSA. I truly believe in being involved in your childrens' school!

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.
