I have to respond to the comment below. We only had two years at St. Agnes, but we moved our child there for exactly the reasons the parent below complains about. We want and expect discipliine at school precisely because it promotes a better learning environment. That structure is what makes the students successful. No students are expected to be perfect, but they are expected to behave. I'm not Catholic, but I say "amen, brother." And of course coaches favor athletes, just like math teachers favor math whizzes. As for the parents, we see that they are a pretty tight group, but I wouldn't describe them as a clique so much as a group of people whose children have been together every day of every school semester for 8 years. We got as close to them and involved as we wanted to. Our child's manners and attitude have both improved many times over, and the acacemic growth has been exponential. We could not be more pleased, and wish all of our older children would have had this opportunity.

they like you better if your wealthy. The moms form a click. The kids learn, but are forced to be perfect. the coach showed favortisim to those that were athletic. It was who you know that mattered. But, father Mike was a great priest and a fair one, but didn't have as much control as he needed. Most kids were of weathly background, some, a couple, were there with a gift from the school, everyone knew who they were. There was a lot of pressure to be perfect . It is a very structured school and requires no talking in lines ect...very strict.I gave the school a rating of 3 only because the kids do learn.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
