Curriculum is the best we've found compared to other area Catholic schools. The test scores are phenomenal.

I am not so sure about this school anymore. The administration seems unconcerned about the happenings in the school. Classes are way too big, and individual attention doesn't exist. People are leaving and I understand why.

We love St. Charles. Their teachers, principal and staff are devoted and caring. Their accademics and standards are high and the community is wonderful!

We choose St. Charles because of the high quality of education and the expectations of the students, in addition to the level of parent involvement. Our children started in St. Charles' preschool program, where we saw that they were not just educated but cared for and loved. This environment continues into the primary and middle school grades. As St. Charles graduates continue on to high school, the feedback the principal continually receives is how extremely well prepared St. Charles students are for high school challenges, and how they continue to excell in that environment. St. Charles also provides excellent extracurricular activities (band, extra science programs, and numerous athletic programs beginning in 3rd grade) and additional opportunities during the school day, such as Spanish and Algebra, to eligible students. We continue to feel very grateful and fortunate for the education (academically and morally) our children are receiving at St. Charles.

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.
