Cathedral is a 5 star school - amazing principal, wonderful & caring teachers, and a great curriculum. My daughter previously attended a public school & was bored and hated school. After enrolling in Cathedral, she absolutely loves school & enjoys the advanced curriculum & has straight A's. The teachers are so caring & respectful to the students! Would strongly recommend this school - well worth the tuition!!!

This is a school that truly cares about their kids. Teachers take the time to email what they did to the parents every day, it is the little things about the school that truly count.

I just graduated from this school and i loved it! i would tell anyone to go to cathedral. i spent 11 years of my life there [starting at 3 year old preschool] and i miss it tons! the best part about it was my class we were so close because the school had taught us that we always had to treat others with kindness! the 8th grade teacher is amazing! i learned so much from her. cathedral has amazing academics so if you want a smart child i would send him there. i am currently a freshmen and i just got my 1st semester report crad and i have a 4.0 all because cathedral set me up for going off to high school! Class of 2008 Forever! :]

Best school ever! This school really saved us. My son went to public school and was really starting to have some issues. We enrolled him in this school and they have really helped him turn things around. It is a great family atmosphere and the teachers are very caring & knowledgable. Worth every penny!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
