This is a wonderful small school with an incredible amount of diversity. They acknowledge and respect the many various cultures and languages represented within the walls of the school. My son receives the amount of attention and support that he needs to excel as a student.

I go to Cathedral School, and it is an ever-changing environment for creating well-rounded individuals. Every year there is another positive addition to the school. The teachers are friendly and try to make learning fun. I think if you want to send your child to a good Catholic School, Cathedral is the one for you!

The academics at Cathedral are highly stressed by the excellent staff of teachers and all those who work at the school. The music program is thriving, the arts program is connected to The Maine College of Art and more after school activities are growing yearly. The school has a very active and caring Home and School Committee that is extremely concerned with working to make Cathedral a very well run,delightful and educational experience for students and their entire family. The principal, Sr. Theresa, is a very kind and caring woman with a lot of experience. She runs the school with respect for all her 'children'. The school has a lot of diversity that makes each student have a great appreciation for each others differences and broadens their learning experiences.It has been an excellent school for our family.

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.
