Pallotti is a really good school. Teachers are very nice, so are students. It creates a lot of opportunities for students. I STRONGLY recommend parents to send their kids to this school

Great school, but not so great choices in Leaders. It's unfortunate the school can not find a decent principal to run the school. Great faculty and campus ministry program!

Pallotti is a great school and investment! The use of technology is very helpful and would definitely recommend it to any interested family!!!!

Mr. Edmonds was great and the new President/Principal seems prepared to take Pallotti to the next level in every area. I have always loved the family I found at Pallotti and knew that my children were getting a great education, now I believe others will see our school in the same light. I have found that Pallotti is a great place for a teenager to grow into a responsible adult.

Not a good school. I do not recommend unless your child is in all honors classes. Students don't listen to teachers, and teachers don't know how to discipline. Students constantly cheat off each other (by sending work via email), play games on the laptops, and don't respect their teachers. Some teachers don't even know how to teach. A math teacher reads word-by-word from the book, and can't explain how to solve a mathematical problem. I had high hopes for this school, and I was let down. I'd rather have my kids attend a public high school. It definitely isn't worth the $12,000 tuition. I DO NOT recommend Pallotti.

My child is currently a freshman honor student at Pallotti, and I have been very pleased with the school. It is a small co-ed school and so the faculty and administration can really get to know the kids. There is a real empahsis on academic and christian values. Pallotti has a strong academic curriculum and they really encourage the kids to excel. The principal is very connected to the kids and knows most of them.

Pallotti is a smaller school, but seems to have a well rounded academic program - it included both honors and regular tracks. While every subject may not be offered every year an effort is made to meet the demand over the course of the time a student attends. There are multiple sports, bands, and clubs given its size and there are many opportunities to participate. The school wins several championships in sports, band, and other activities each year. Parent involvement seems to be moderate to high level. The thing that separates Pallotti from other schools is the spirit and caring nature of the students, faculty, and administration. It is a school where good values are lived not merely taught. Academically, it is one of the strongest schools in the area - a good combination that will help get your student get into an excellent college.

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.
