I can't agree more with the previous poster. The principal is extremely involved with creating a 'Broadway' production and while that can be viewed as an added benefit, it's disheartening to know that it seems to be his absolute primary focus. It's also annoying that the school's website is not up to date. For the past three years, the same 'Under Construction' and 'Coming Soon' blurbs are posted where data should have been added by now. This is the third year that my children have attended St. Ignatius and they remain enrolled there only because my first choice for another school in the area has not accepted new applications in awhile. Many of the teachers are fine but St. Ignatius should consider executing a stronger curriculum and implement extra-curricular activities; not focus so much on Broadway productions.

The school just recently changed pricipals, and the new principal who is appears to love the Arts seems quite passive in other areas of the school development. The curriculum is fair. The teaching staff lacks consistency in regards to the grading scale. They do not offer any opporutity for the students to participate in team sports as well having absolutely no extra-curricular activities for kids in grade k-3rd and only band and now drama for the upper grades. The desire for parent involvement is thier but it does not seem to be embraced by the current administration.

I agree with the other parent. The atmosphere at St. Ignatius is one of caring, academic achievement, and family. I have enrolled my son for 7th grade and we are looking forward to an enriching year...

'You never get a second chance to make a first impression.' The staff at St. Ignatius doesn't need a second chance, they got it right the first time! I stopped by to inquire about admission policies and curriculum this summer. I had a list of four other schools that I planned to visit after my stop at St. Ignatius. To make a long story short-I never made it to those other schools. St. Ignatius is a first rate CARING and nurturing environment where students grow. I'm looking forward to a great educational and spiritual experience for my daughter this year.

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.
