An urban delight . . . . a diamond in the rough! Old-fashioned, yet technologically advanced schools like this are rare in this day and age.

This school is one of the oldest & best schools in Ft Wayne. They have a very diverse population, are active in their neighborhood surrounding the school, they have excellent & engaged teachers, they are parochial therfore they can help children reach their spiritual potential, the student body is very respectful to everyone, their test scores are some of top in our area, they provide a top notch education on a shoestring budget to the not so wealthy children in our great city. Our Mayor Henry is a graduate of Most Precious Blood--still belongs to the parish & is a strong supporter of MPB! Pat Moore Fort Wayne In

We love the small class sizes and the time that the teachers are able to spend with our children. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is very welcoming. The after school activities are very educational.

Precious Blood School instills good moral values in its students and fosters a culture of respect, stewardship, and high academic achievement. I believe some of the best teachers in Indiana are at PB. As a university professor in the sciences, I am impressed by PB's committment to science and math education. The reading program is first-rate. PB offers many extracurricular activities, including music, drama, and athletics. No child is excluded from participation. Students of all faiths and from diverse cultural backgrounds are welcomed. Overall, I'm proud my children are at PB.

My child had the option this year to attend the school near our home that her best friend attends or return to PB. Without hesitation she chose PB. She replied, 'Mommy at that school they don't even pray and the teachers don't know all the kids' names!' That said it all to me. PB creates a loving, nurturing environment that enables students to feel special and safe which allows them to find their passion to learn. Each year I am more amazed by the exceptional teachers we have and their commitment to our children. Thank you, PB!

'PB' offers a safe environment and quality education from caring, certified teachers. The class sizes are small. In addition to the regular academics, students participate in about 7 different sports, bell choir, band, chorus, Spanish, school musical, television prduction (on site studio), student council, and academic contests. In 2006 PB scored 2nd in the science I-step for Fort Wayne and also posts higher than average scores in math and english. They even have their own 6 lane bowling alley!! We have a new principal this year which I am sure will bring many more great things. PB is a great family.

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.
