This is my seventh year (with three children) at SS Cyril and Methodius School and I can honestly say this was the best choice for my Child's education. From a very early age my children were reading, using iPads/Smartboards, and taught public speaking in 2nd grade! This school creates leaders through a challenging curriculum, yet caters to those gifted students who may need the extra help in finding their way. The teachers care and want these students to go on to great high schools & colleges; I have personally worked with the Special Resources Counselor who is excellent in finding a program that will make my daughter succeed without letting go of the challenge. This is NOT a place where kids get a prize for showing up, but a place where the prize is a quality Catholic education at a great value. Kudos to the team at this school - my kids are behaved, well-rounded and most importantly HAPPY!

Poor leadership and lack of interest in aspiring for higher standards. Teachers are stagnant and do not aspire growth and professional development, with the exception of a select few. Many changes need to be made to this school from all levels to compete with the surrounding catholic grade schools.

The kindergarten teachers leave much to be desired. I have seen first hand the lack of classroom management skills one teacher has and heard from other parents that the second kindergarten teacher should have retired years ago. I'm not sure how the other grade level teachers are but kindergarten is a huge disappointment.

It was a really good school. Expecially the academics. The teachers really pushed you to be your best. Even if that meant a lower grade, you still gave that effort.

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.
