It's a great school I went there and got the best education compared to my non private school aqantinces (my staffs children)

Posted April 12, 2004

The Catholic faith is a way of life at this school: day begins with scripture and prayer, worksheets come home with Bible stories, prayer and Church teaching are woven into the school day. I love the crucifix and other religious images in the hallways, the presence of priests in classrooms or lunch room, and the all-school mass one morning a week, in which children participate by singing, lectoring, carrying gifts. What I don't like is the inaccessibility of the principal. She is never visible in the lunch room, does not greet visitors, is not reliable about returning phone calls and messages. Parents with concerns of any sort are all too often ignored. Also, she will side with the teacher no matter what. Many families have pulled out their children, and I may be next. The school is small, no frills, no nurse. Public schools should do as much with as little.

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.
