Recently, my son graduated from the school. My son had a academic history of average. He really struggles in content rich subjects. The teachers cared about his progress. They helped change his thinking. He was challenged in a good way. Next year in high school he is taking all honors courses at a private school. His core values are very strong. My son has goals for himself. He pushes himself to do better. He was not always that way. I noticed a huge change in him when switched from another catholic school to this one when he was in fourth grade. Yes, it take some getting used to but in the end it was worth it in the end. On my son's day of graduation, my son hugged me and thanked me for sending him to St. Stanislaus. He was aware of the great change he had made while being at St. Stanislaus. He acknowledged he was a better student and person for simply being there. He said he would not have gotten it at his old school in Springfield. This speaks volumes about the school. The principals were great. The teachers were great. The students were diverse but great to be with.

This school provides an environment for children to grow into their potential. Respect and integrity are modeled by teachers and staff, students are expected to demonstrate the same. Graduates of St. Stan's are the honors students in high school who go on to reflect the school in a very postivie light. Our children are third generation students at this school and we have the opportunity to send our children to any private school in this region. We would choose St. Stan's again without any hesitation,

I am so glad I removed my child from this school. Military lifestyle was NOT for him. He never felt accomplished. He never got the praise he needed to grow. NOW.. he loves to work on learning even after school. I"m so relieved this princple gave up on my child. It was the push I needed to understand good education doesn't stop with St.Stan. My child received so much more leaving St.Stans.

I have a child there and I couldn't be happier. The education standard is very high and it should be. I've never seen a child ignored because he wasn't smart enough, that's absurd. The facility is top-notch, clean and modern. 7/10 sounds like a transfer student from another school where the standards weren't very high.

I currently have two children enrolled, I feel the school is a good fit for one, however if your child has any kind, even slight, learning curve, this is not the school for them. I don't feel they have the resources or desire to address those needs. Their emphasis is more on the above average student not the 'average' student. I also have witnessed negative reinforcement more often than positive. I would like to see the music and art programs more detailed. I do feel extremely comfortable with my children's safety.

A little over a decade after graduating from St. Stanislaus I can now appreciate the level of education and personal development I received there. In conversations with friends of mine who attended other private schools it has become crystal clear that St. Stanislaus had far and away the most well-rounded and comprehensive curriculum. The faculty and staff share an excitement and sincerity for the work they do and it is reflected in the achievements of their alumni. Many of the alumni have gone on to graduate as Valedictorians of their high school classes and many more have enrolled at well-known colleges and universities. When I was a student the school offered a number of classes including music and physical education. I also played for several school sponsored sports teams. To put it simply: The return on your investment in a child's education at St Stanislaus is well worth the tuition.

'I sent both of my children to St. Stan's. It was a great education! The faculty and staff couldn't have been more supportive. I know that my children's future success started at St. Stan's. They received an excellent academic foundation in a faith-filled environment. Anyone who sends their children to St. Stan's is giving them the best shot at success. These are the words of a very proud parent.'

St. Stanislaus School has been synonymous with academic excellance for over 100 years. I graduated from St. Stanislaus School and my child is currently enrolled at the school. When I went to the school, I was challenged and encouraged by my teachers to embrace learning. As a mother, I appreciate how much the teachers care for the students. I appreciate all of the extras they do to encourage students to love learning. The school has a newspaper, drama club, reading clubs, band/choir and sports teams. The children are taught to care about their community and each other. St. Stanislaus School is a caring, nurturing environment where children are given a well rounded education in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The school also has music, art and PE programs for all grade levels. St. Stanislaus is more than a school; it is an extended family.

My daughter loves the school,which she has attended for 6 years. The class sizes are small. The students go between multiple teachers (examples: 2 teachers in grade 1 or 4 teachers in grades 5-6 ; plus pe,computer,etc) so they get exposure to different teaching styles and don't need to spend all day with a teacher they may not be compatible with. They do a good amount of work with computers starting in Kdg so the students have lots of exposure to it. They also have good before-school and after-school care for the students, which is important to working parents. There are a few things we would change as parents, but overall we are very happy with the school.

My children have gone to St. Stanislaus for 7 years and this is the best school money can buy. The study habits they have obtained here are phenomenal and the great sports programs keep the children well rounded. The best by far.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
