Excellent school and early childhood center! Teachers meet individual needs, as well as challenge students with an innovative curriculum. The integration of technology keeps all students actively engaged in learning! Love the school, parish, and community! I highly recommend this school for anyone who is looking for an educational program that promotes a love of learning and faith in all students.

Great community - supportive of all aspects (Early Learning Center, School and church). Highly qualified staff and excellent curriculum - my children were very prepared for high school. Communication is priority.

St. Gabriel's is a great school. I love that the older students interact with the younger students whether it is sitting with them at Mass or working in the "School Families". Everyone knows each other at this school and parents are really involved. ITBS test scores are awesome.

St. Gabriels is a school with a nurturing environment. A family environment where smaller class sizes enable more direct contact between student and educator. The leadership of the school is innovative and proactive. Many of the parents are actively involved in their children's education. As a parent I have been very pleased with the school's overall test scores which compare very favorably with other pier group institutions.

St. Gabriel meets the criteria for excellence. The administration is professional and welcoming. The school secretary wears many hats with grace and kindness. The faculty really responds to the needs of all the children. The halls are filled with students who smile and greet visitors with kindness. The hallway has great displays of student work in literature, art and social studies. The students use technology daily. They enter the Kansas City Science Fair,perform in musical programs and speech competition. The fourth grade has a terrific Wax Museum in which the students dress and speak as the famous person they represent. Honor roll students abound. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

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.
