Great school. Works with parents to improve the students study skills.

Posted May 5, 2007

St. Rita is a school that continues to grow and improve. The parental level of involvement is very high and the academic program challenging. The addition of a new reading program and a resource program for math seem to be helping students who need extra help to reach their potential. A renewed focus on the arts is happening and that's exciting--especially for kids who enjoy music and art. The recent addition of gates around the perimeter of the school gives parents an added sense of security. The students at school seem happy and feel like St. Rita is like a 'second home.' St. Rita has gone through growing pains but the school has definitely improved in the last few years. I've been a school parent for over 10 years and see the difference!

Both of my children graduated from St. Rita - most recently my daughter in 2004. My son did very well in High School. My daughter is doing well in her first year of High school. Both were well prepared academically. Disipline was reinforced in such a manner that both had a good idea of what it would take to succeed in high school. The children's spirital growth was fostered. The only thing I would have changed is the foreign language requirement or lack of this requirement.

It's a great school. Parental involvement and family activities are outstanding. Good academic standards and extracurricular activities. A real community of learning.

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.
