Great school and great education. My kids transferred to Mater Dei from public school. They were in advanced classes. The general ed. at Mater Dei is ahead of the advanced classes in public school. The kids are taught by teachers who truly care in a respectful faith-based environment conducive to learning. My kids get up each morning excited about going to school.

True feeling of family here. Feels like everyone cares. When you see teachers out in public, they speak to you. My oldest daughter got a note from her former teacher when her name was in the paper. That's caring,

I am a former student of Mater Dei and can only say that it is a great school. The teachers love what they do and they do it well. Not only will you gain academics, but a well roundedness from extra curricular activities such as band, show choir, sports, and quiz bowl. Mater Dei is a school that sets students up for success throughout life. It is a great school

My lil girl took her biggest steps when she left the morning of the 1st day of Kindergarten. This school is a very, very good school. The Teachers, and Staff, work together as 1. I thank you for being part of the roots to my daughters education. M. Spaulding

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.
