My son is a Kindergartner at Seton this year. The staff is incredible and so is the curriculum. I absolutely adore both Kindergarten teachers and their aids. I wouldn't think of sending my son anywhere else.

As a current 8th grade student at Seton, I have to say the students and teachers are remarkable! The teachers are constantly making sure you get everything they are discussing. Great school, gonna miss it next year!

As a former student of Seton I can confidently say that it is a school with a well rounded curriculum, great teachers, wonderful parent involvement, and nurturing, faith filled environment. I can think of no other school I would send my own children to.

Parent involvement is incredible! I do think this school also has it's problems. The education is decent but while teaching our children religion, and morals and values, Seton also teaches the children that money runs the world. I'm starting to look into public schools for next year.

I don't always believe that statement, you get what you pay for. I think Seton is too overated if you ask me. There are other private schools around here that are just as good as Seton. Or even better! Besides, most of their classes have the same number of students that the public schools do. So what's the difference?

The school and faculty are excellent, the price to attend the school is high, but you get what you pay for.

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.
