St Angela is the best school in town. Our children have been attending the school since 1992. The teachers are excellent. They are very patient and loving toward the students. A child learns best in a loving environment. The principal is a mother of all. The curriculum is great because our two oldest boys are doing well in College and High School and we still have our youngest boy there who is also doing well. We have only received compliments on the level of education that our boys have received from St. Angela.

I LOVE THIS SCHOOL. It is amazing. Small but yet so incredibly growing. Everyday we learn something new and go out to spread it with the world. I would never leave the school if I have to but, graduation is the step up for us to show the world how far St. Angela School has taken us.We emphasize Respect and Responsibility and when you walk threw those doors you feel a love you'll only feel here. EXCELLENT. I am very involved in the school, being on student bodies and all you can think of. I guarantee you will never regret sending your child here. -PROUD STUDENT!

St. Angela is an amazing school. The staff is always there supporting your goals 110%. The headmaster Sister Gail is a warm and caring advisor. I should no, I attended St.Angela School. Every month the whole school,grades K-8, is invovled in an event thanks to the newly found Student Council. Their motto at St. Angela is respect and responsibility. This motto is given and recieved everyday. Another quality that makes St. Angela School such an amazing school is their dicipline in the classroom. You are guarenteed an excellent education. You are given perspective in life which I and all my 2005 classmates took to heart especially in our last year at St. Angela. There are no words to describe the education recieved at this school unless you have experienced it for yourself. Even a tour of this school will be all you need to say yes to enrolling.

This school is the best school around. I dont say that just because I went there, but because it is. The music, art, and sports teachers are all wonderful. The parents are always welcomed to be involved in the development of there child at St. Angela School.

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.
