- a
We have been attending this school for 7 years. We love the teachers, staff, and watching our children learn in a rigorous, loving, and faith-filled environment.

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
I have never experienced an issue with bullying. I know they teach children at all grade levels every year about the effects of bullying and how to stop it through Bullying and the Bible and they have a reporting system in place.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
They have a complete support services staff that support children of all academic abilities. For such a small Catholic school they really know how to individualize education.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
They have a new Principal that is in touch with the families and concentrates on building relationships.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
They partner with Joseph Maley Foundation to build character of self and awareness of others.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
They care about my child's academic, social, and faith growth. St. Monica's focus on individual growth is refreshing.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
They use homework as an opportunity to practice skills and build study strategies.

My two children started in Kindergarten and graduated from 8th grade. Both children have a passion for serving others and creating an equitable social environment for all. Because of the diverse student population, my children can engage people of all abilities, ethnicities, and beliefs with equity and humility. My children are proud to be St. Monica graduates. As a Sophomore and Senior in high school, they regularly talk about their faith with peers and make good choices daily. I also appreciate St. Monica's ability to support students with academic and ELL needs.

If you are considering a new school, I would check out other private schools in the area. This school has been in decline the past few years. Classroom sizes keep growing. ISTEP scores are not everything, but a 46% overall passing score that St. Monica received last year is unacceptable. The communication from the principal is also lacking as it takes her a week to respond to you. We switched schools this year and our children are thriving. Definitely do your research when checking out schools in the area. There are much better options!



- a
A new administration came in three years ago and has done wonders. They are building a new staff, beefing up technology and curriculum and retaining the Catholic education. I don't intend to disparage the prior administration. They did fine but things can and do get stale and there were some teachers that were complacent. My children are learning what they need to know and the school is reinforcing the values I want my children to learn. I have children in the 7th, 5th and 2nd grade this year and all have attended St. M's since K. My only critical comment is that the Spanish program is still in need of an overhaul.
