The junior high program is tough, especially compared to the local public school. A lot of core education. Writing, reading and arithmetic. The teachers are outstanding - motivated and experienced. They really care about whether your child is learning. My child's writing abilities soared through this school. I never knew he was so talented. If you want your child to be challenged and see their really talent, bring them here!

St. Raymond is perfect. When I came here, I learned that when they say all are welcome, they mean it. The friendly community is complemented by excellent academics, community activities, and great extra curriculars. Go Saints!

St. Raymond prepares their students not only to be very good students but stewards of humanity. Many go on to excel in academics, arts and sports in high school. All leave with a genuine care and love for their neighbors and all things that surround them.

St. Raymond offers not only academic excellence, but develops the student to be the best person he/she can be. The teachers live out their mission and promise to deliver the best education.

St. Raymond's offers a solid education and it's students are well prepared for high school. There are many extracurricular activities offered. It's a very nice community and there are lots of opportunities for parental involvement. The school won the Blue Ribbon Award for education this year (2009)- one of only 50 private schools nationally to do so. They have recently invested in upgrading the facilities and programming of the preschool. There's a lot to like! My kids are proud to attend St. Raymonds and we are very satisfied with the education they're receiving. We enjoy being part of the community as well.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
