Having taught in both public and private schools, I am pleased we send our children to St. Regis. Never have I met a more wonderful, considerate and kind administration. Staff is well-educated and current with Common Core and Best Practices in the classrooms. The school is not outdated in teaching practices nor technology. The Pastor, Principal, Dean of Students, Admissions Director, as well as staff members, are an amazing team. I am constantly humbled by the level of respect and teamwork in the building. I highly recommend this school. It's a wonderful place to educate your child(ren).

St. Regis is a wonderful, nurturing school and academy. The administration, the teachers, the students and families that are a part of this community work very well together to ensure St. Regis is a great school for all students!

I have two children that attend St.Regis. After looking at several different Catholic schools, we decided that this is the family for us. We could not be happier. The administration has been kind and welcoming. The teachers are excellent. They go above and beyond to help my children. My children want to go to school everyday. We are very happy at St.Regis.

Academically, the school was very good. My children were well-prepared for high school and excelled freshman year in Spanish, English, and Math due to the teachers at St. Regis. Socially, the place is a bit of a challenge, though our kids did fine and were happy. There is a legacy/lifer clique that is far from welcoming. Spiritually, the Catholic education was great, but students could be held to higher standards of behavior. Extracurricular activities: Regis track and football are legendary due to the coaching, but other sports seem to lack experienced coaches and that could lead to very bad experiences for young kids. They are trying to add different activities other than sports, but there wasn't much there during our tenure. The new administration has had its challenges cleaning up the finances and replacing very good teachers who left (some voluntarily, some not). I hope they succeed.

As a parent with a student at St. Regis, I can attest that this year has not brought about the change we had hoped. My regret is we didn't transfer after all the turmoil of last year, which was a huge red flag and our indecision, I feel, has become detrimental to their education. This has also come at a cost to us, after paying for their education, we are paying for supplement tutoring. I feel this is the unforturnate cost of our decision to stay. There are some good things about St. Regis but I'm sorry to say too many disappointments outweigh those things.

The reviews seem mixed, but I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving. We came here five years ago from another Catholic school. We had no particular complaints with the previous school, but it was very small and seemed to lack some of the 'bells and whistles' that St. Regis has. Coming from a small school, we were worried that there would be not as much individual attention, but that was not the case. My three children have been taught to think for themselves, care for others, and how to model Christian behavior. That was in addition to the excellent instruction with high expectations that have consistently placed them in the top 15% of every standardized test they've taken. My one concern is that it seems that some vocal parents try to disrupt the instructional process by publicly demeaning faculty and administration. However, this year seems much calmer, so I am hoping that situation is resolving itself. Perhaps the person who posted several grammar errors within his/her own post that criticized the grammar of a teacher is also less of a distraction this year by sending his/her children to a different school.

I am in love with St. Regis! The principal is the most supportive and loving woman. Every aspect of the school strives for excellence. The teachers are amazing, caring, and incredibly hard working. My children are receiving the best education available.

I have three children at St. Regis and am very happy with the school. St. Regis has taught our children very well and is home to some truly outstanding teachers. What's more, we feel like we are part of a strong community at St. Regis. I like that my kids attend a school where everyone knows them and knows me and my husband. It's a place where people really care about each other. St. Regis is surrounded by very good public schools, but they can't match the strong academics and nurturing environment offered at Regis.

St Regis has been a wonderful place for both my children. They are able to meet the needs of all types of students. It is strong academically but also focuses on good moral values. The community is one of a kind.

St. Regis was never a good school to begin with. In my opinion it had poor discipline and the middle schoolers were not as prepared for high school as students from other schools were. The new staff has attempted to improve the school, but did the opposite and completely turned everything around. They have bitten off more than they can chew and several families are switching schools and parishes.

New administration has brought the upper grade school to an academic low. Mismanagement of teaching personnel has disrupted the course of the learning process and set students behind. Electives are short of laughable with no regard to academic enrichment.

St. Regis academically is a great school. Many parents went to the school and now send their children there. Very clickish. Unfortunate for a Catholic school.

I believe it nurtures and educates my child in an equally balanced religious and academic environment which mimics our personal life and beliefs.

We moved into this school 2 years ago from a local public school and we could not be happier. Wish we had made this change sooner. This is a school where discipline, kindness, and solid teaching is the standard. Our children are expected to have manners and responsibility for their level of work. Sports program is good too.

Excellent school with great moral values. Take discipline seriously. Very good Science, Math, English and Spanish programs. Excellent sports. Very involved community of parents. Love the Christmas programs as well as the Mother and Father Day programs.

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.
