St. Monica is known for it's high academics. The teachers go above and beyond to work with my child and me. The school is in constant communication with the parents. They are always challenging the students in the area of technology and fine arts. My oldest child even tested into multiple honors classes his freshmen year at high school. That is largely due to the teachings and learning at St. Monica.

The school is great. The education is second to none. The kids are happy to go everyday. We have 2 kids there now and one more on the way, we have been very happy. The familes are very involved and welcoming. We have been in the parish a few years now and feel like we know every family.

Have 2 sons that went 8 years here and we could not have been more satisfied with the quality of the teachers and curriculum. Very high parent involvement.

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.
