Excellent leadership and caring faculty. High expectations for all students, regardless of economic or social class.

Catholic values means Catholic style punishments - which is not great for self-esteem of little kids. Send your kids to a real school.

St. Roch is good but they only work well with kids they see with potential. If your child have ADD/ADHD or any type of special need, they WILL NOT WORK WITH THEM. Even if the archdiocese states otherwise. I had one child with ADD and the other child was above average student. After the child with ADD wasn't treated fairly by the principal/some teachers/and priest, I withdrew them. Now, one attends SLU High School and the one with ADD attends University of Notre Dame on a 4 yr. academic scholarship. I am truly bless!

St. Roch's has an excellent academic reputation--the best kept secret in urban St. Louis elementary education. Affordable compared to independent private schools, but has strong curriculum and considerable emphasis on the core subjects. The Spanish program also is strong.

St Roch does a very good job of educating the children, and teachers are exceptional many have 'old school' values about education, very effective, no nonsense, disciplined, and excuses are not allowed. It is a small school, but big in spirit.

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 »
