Choir at open house suggests a school top heavy in ministry yet the students rarely if ever minister beyond the confines of the school. Very weak in terms of challenges for the bright student. Religion program is equivalent to an elementary school CCD program, or worse, spending DAYS watching movies like "Superman" and "Friday Night Lights", Newer president of the school, Julian Peebles, is almost 100% in abstentia, This "education" ended up costing us $$ on "the other side" with colleges - our child was not prepared for the SAT 2s for French, History or Chem because the teachers were so weak (the principal didn't even know what an SAT 2 was). By the principal's own admission, when the class president asked "why are we always the 'dumb school', he stated "every school has its niche in the Archdiocese", as if to suggest that it's an unwritten rule in the Archd that it is SUPPOSED to be without challenge. If your goals for your child extend beyond those of a community college, steer clear. Get a $ package from another school if the cost is your reason for choosing Spellman. You won't regret it. I wish we could go back in time and do things differently.

Excellent school where the teachers and other faculty really care about the kids. Have had children in the school for 10 years and they have all been very successful. The school spirit and 'family' atmosphere cannot be beat. More AP courses would be the only thing I would suggest for improvement.

We are thrilled with our experience at Spellman. Teachers and administration are positive and supportive. Community spirit abounds. It's nice when your child looks forward to going to school every day.

This school is filled with possitive people and great teachers. It will help your child become a great person, prepared for college and have a strong relationship in God.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
