I moved 45 miles for my son to attend St. Monica's School. The environment for the children is great. The teachers truly care for the well-being, happiness, education and growth of the children. There is much effort going into the future growth of the school and of the children. The Pastor as well as the principal, teachers, board members and PTO are very active in the high expectations of the coming years and the greater education of the children. My child did not like school AT ALL before, now he says every day it was a great day (seriously!) Except for one when he got in trouble for too much tardiness, but that is a strong point of the school. It is more disciplined, as well as instilling the 'sense' and importance of self-discipline in the students. They have plenty of activites and chances to meet other families, the academics and school material are carefully chosen, and the older kids look out for the younger ones. It is worth investing in the tuition. I also have not seen any bullying at all here. I highly, highly recommend SMS for the best interests of any child, for families, and future society because out of SMS we will see great leaders in the future!

I attended St. Monica's and I'm very happy that the school still exists. They provide a wonderful option for those not wanting a public education. Really helped prepare me for private high school and college

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.
