my daughter has attended this school since she was three years old. A lot of improvement was done over this past summer. the school is great it is a small community school and I believe the students do get the attention they need. I believe the students gets their money's worth in terms of education given the resources available to them. My daughter is in kindergarten now and hopefully will continue until middle school. I like the fact that she is not forced to join the catholic church and it's o.k. for her to attend a different church. She is treaded very nice and we the parents have not tieds to the school other than she attends the school. At k she is taught organizational skills as well as study skills. I believe that if this school is given the same resources as other private schools it will excell.

This school is great. It is all renewed with some new teachers and a new principal. The teachers and principal are very understanding and listen to our concerns.

I am very impressed with the Kindergarten and second grade, since my children are in those classes. My second grader is far more advance than his cousin who is in another catholic school in the city. My daughter loves going to school and can read in Kindergarten. I give a lot of credit to those 2 teachers Mrs. Lemieux and Mrs. Raposo

I withdrew my child from this school because very poor leadership and lack of professional middleschool teachers, with a great lack of christianity from the principal.

I pulled my kid out of this school...very poor leadership and a lot of special treatment for kids with parents in the PTA. Very unfair. I hope this new leadership brings forward better judgement and more accountability. Some unqualified teachers who should not be teaching.

Excellent leadership from the principal. Challenging curriculum based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework. Caring teachers.

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.
