Until this year, St Pats was one of the few schools left in the Archdiocese that was 100% tiding (donation) based. Unfortunately a few bad apples put us on the road to the same tuition based policy as many of the other local Catholic schools. We have been overall pleased with the academic and theological aspects of the school; likewise the tuition model now puts us ahead of the curve when we speak about a technology rich, secure environment. Discounting a few of the snobs we have run across there, it is a fairly hospitable, welcoming environment that thrives because of all of the wonderful volunteers. And the new clerical staff is simply marvelous.

For my 4 children, I value catholic education that includes strong academic expectations, motivated, professional and respectful teachers, a sense of "home" ^ belonging and an inviting atmosphere. We have it all here at St Patrick!

St. Patrick is a faith-based community where my children learn both academics and christian values. The school emphasizes peace building, learning about our Catholic faith and helping one another. The Stewardship Program is outstanding! From Kindergarten through 8th grade the students take part in projects to give back to their community and to help those in need.

While I love this school due to the community of people, I feel it is lacking in leadership. We have unhappy teachers and have had a high turnover of teachers. Our middle school is uninspiring for our children and have many teachers who YELL instead of discipline. We could be so much more.

There is such a variety of special activities that the kids can participate in...something for all interests from art to sports. The fantastic parent volunteer program allows this to happen.

This is truly a community of families. Parents give of their time and talents to support the learning program and extra-curricular activities conducted here.

The school and parish are a warm environment . The teachers are dedicated to student achievement. Another reviewer indicated they would like a more ethic or economic diverse group at the school needs to be more realistic about the demographics of the east end of Louisville. You can only work with the population you are given in a particular area. Some may say the church works likes a business, well my response to that is which church does not. A church has bills to pay, just as you and I do and if the collection is not covering operating expenses well something needs to change. I have lived all over the United States and I have been involved in many different catholic communities. I can honestly say St. Patrick is a nice school.

I have been extremely happy with my child's school experience here. The best part is the excellent, loving, caring faculty and the warm atmosphere that encourages learning, personal growth, and values. She is academically challenged, and has had many varied extracurricular opportunity to give her a balanced education. I feel she is being well prepared for high school and life.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

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.
