Each year this school is getting better and better. The curriculum is tough and the school is doing a great job with it. I want my child to be challenged and work for his grades. The staff is wonderful and available to parents. I'm happy we have stuck it out.

The students attending All Saints Catholic School are challenged academically and taught to be kind and caring. The faculty work together to keep your children safe and provide a nurturing environment for their growth and development.

My daughter attends this school and has since kindergarten. The school has gone through some changes over the last few years and it took a little time to adjust but I am glad I kept her in this school. The teachers are wonderful and compassionate. The communication is great. The curriculum is right in line with all the other catholic schools. I was reading all these negative comments and wanted to post my experience. It is a great school!!! Don't believe the negativity!!

I am a parent of a former student of All Saints School. My child entered high school unprepared for most of the college prep classes. Despite numerous requests for assistance from the principal regarding teacher's performance and actions in the classroom , my requests were ignored. Teachers clearly had favorites as did the principal. I attended a meeting to discuss the 8th grade graduation dance and witnessed a teacher mocking the principal. How unprofessional and disrespectful. Not only did this teacher arrive late, she disrupted the meeting with her nasty attitude. Very unsatisfied with this school.

I have two kids attending All Saints and I am very pleased with the level of education and discipline they are receiving. Their staff is dedicated and committed to providing the best environment possible. I highly recommend this school.

Having been a Catholic school graduate myself, I thought it was important to have my children learn in a Catholic school as well. My youngest now graduating the 8th grade,has given me the chance to see how All Saints does not by far fit to the standards expected by a Catholic school.The teachers do not respect the students. Communication is not always the best. But, for a Catholic School, Religion should be important. It starts at the top. The priests, principal, and then teachers. If you don't show it how can you teach it?

All Saints provides a rigorous curriculum, incorporates current technology, employs professional and caring teachers and staff and nurtures students in multi-level development: body, mind and spirit.

Our school has a wonderful sense of community. The students are a joy to work with and their energy and passion make every day fun and positive. They show their enthusiasm for faith, academics, and service each day. A great place for students, teachers, and parents!

All Saints is a positive learning environment. The students here are challenged not only with great academics, but also to be good Christians and role models. The school offers a kind, safe and fun place for children to learn and parents to share. Caring staff in the inexpensive and convenient Extended Care program helps the parents rest assured when unable to pick their child up a 2:30. The tudents are also encouraged to do Christian service in school and outside of school.

Excellent principal and vice principal. They are a winning team! I have had my two children there since pre-k 3 and each year gets better

This school has developed in many ways. The entire staff works together to offer the best for our children. The caring and inviting atmosphere are noticable when you enter the building. Looking forward to next year!

Anything negative about this school usually gets disregarded. There is nothing great except a few teachers. This is definetly not a holy school and would not advise anyone to allow their child to attend here. If you like to be lied to right to your face, then maybe this is the school for you. I feel bad for a lot of the staff because they have such a poor leader!! I just recently removed my child from all the negativity that school has. I had to give the school at least one star because the site doesn't allow you to put zero.

One of the hallmarks of Catholic education is rigorous behavioral and moral standards. My daughter is a student at this school, and I noted this year that many of the children who had left the school were students who had caused problems, being disruptive in class, or bullying other students. It seems parents did not like the administration because rules were enforced and parents were not allowed to bully teachers and the principal into letting kids do whatever they want. The school has many committed families and the curriculum is very open, so you know exactly what is expected of your child. Honestly, my daughter is having a much better experience now that the class mean girl is gone and there is not so much negativity from parents.

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.
