Google ACT results for 2012 and you will see that St. Alberts had the highest scores in the area and outscored state average. 99% of students graduate and 96% go on to college based on 5 year averages. I met two new teachers who had been teaching 20 years in local public schools and were burned out. They have been rejuvenated teaching in the disciplined and respectful culture of St. Alberts. The new school president had a successful career managing Fortune 500 companies and is bringing his skills to St. Alberts. This is already a very good school... and it is getting even better.

If you are seeking the best high school in Co. Bluffs, this is your only option. The education follows a college prep trac, but is mediocre at best. Grades have always been catered to local large Catholic families, with deep charitable pockets. Many students scoring well at St. Albert's, never graduate from college. If you value your kid's education, expect this school to meet only the most basic needs. Many students are not challenged, and many fall behind. Don't expect the attention necessary to catch them up. It is a survival of the fittest nature as most public schools are. Teacher quality reflects low pay. Limited private/religious funds=limited programs. Strongest leadership is religious. You could save your money for college and do just as well with public options, if you are very vigilant, and promote positive high expectations for your child. Former Student/Successful College Graduate, and Proud Graduate of an Omaha, NE private school. I am the proud parent of a successful public school student, currently.

The dedication to the students and their success is No 1! I couldn't be more pleased with my boys development!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student 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 »
