My children have attended St. Monica Catholic School for the past 5 years. This school is one of Kansas City's best kept secrets. The teaching staff is one of the most dedicated and committed I have experienced. If you want an caring, safe environment where your child will receive academic challenge and success along with Christian teaching and responsibility, check out St. Monica. My only desire is for the school to have a newer building and not combine classes. But I guess as the enrollment grows they will get those things.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
