My children thrived at St. Dominic. There were so many options to choose from that they each were able to find their own path. There is a very strong sense of community that makes each child feel apart of the school. Each of my children received some really nice scholarships for college and found themselves well prepared to handle the academics at their universities. Thank you to the teachers, staff and administration for building such a great place for kids to grow and learn.

We have had a family member attend this school and are extremely unhappy. The public schools in this area have much more to offer in terms of academics and AP pportunitites. just look at academic scores and scholarshipa earned.

What a wonderful experience our son had at this school! The students, the teachers and the administration really live and breath Christian values. The academics are top notch - the school makes it easy for the kids to explore and learn at their own ablility. We have appreciated the range of AP and honors classes offered. Our son now has several excellent university to choose from due to the education he received at St. Dominic's.

Year after year Dominic keeps losing its best teachers and coaches. My son's favorite coach and teacher left thisyear. Now, during this senior year he will not have the support of his closest teacher.

St.Domininc offers the same AP and honors course selection you d find at any local public school. There are fewer sports at Dominic than other area schools; for example, no wrestling, no field hockey, no ice hockey, etc. There are student clubs but once again you may find more at the local public school. The student population is 99% white, staff population is 100%, so diversity will not be experienced through the school. Cost for four years is around 40,000. Drama club remains strong but performing arts center remains unfinished after three years of construction. Similar drama programs can be found at local public high schools only with finished performing arts centers.

Behind the times when it comes to course selection. The school touts AP and Honors courses like they are the only ones to ever have them. Some of the best teachers have been cut.

My child gained so much at St. Dominic's! A warm welcome was given by very caring staff, teachers and students. We found their science, math and language classes to be further ahead than the priviate school previously attended. The teachers are absolutely the best.

My daughter is finishing her senior year and has had an excellent 4 years at St. Dominic. Her classes were set up to help her gear up for college as soon as she came in as a freshman! She has had wonderful guidance and instruction. The teachers provide many opportunities to explore and excel in the many different areas of study. Honors classes are encouraged as a way to further prepare and get advanced learning in subjects relating to a future degree. Extra curricular activities abound with magnificent performing arts programs, state ranked sports programs and many varied and philanthropic clubs. We would encourage any seeking quality education to visit St. Dominic to see the great work and growth going on everyday for themselves!!

Do not sent your child to St.Dominic. Several top members of faculty in the Science, Math, and English departments have left in the last two years. These teachers prepared me for college in a way that put me above the rest of my college competition. Their replacements have been a regular rotation of first year teachers who leave after one year than are replaced by another first year teacher. Course selection hasn't change in 10 years, there is a much wider selection of courses at another private school or even local public schools.

St. Dominic is a great school with an all-around good enviorment. It isn't the absloute best school in Missouri, but I wouldn't choose to go anywhere else. All schools have their advantages and disadvantages, and I would say that if a student tried their absolute best at SDHS, they will get alot out of it and will be successful in life. It isn't as much of where you go to high school, it's how much work the student will do. The only thing I do not like about St. Dominic is their religion department. For being a Catholic school, they could definitely use more work in the area of faith. But other than that, I would definitely choose SDHS. If I am to live in St. Charles County when I'm older, I would send my students to Dominic, more of a West County area would be SJA, another great school. Godbless:)

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.
