They do not have advanced math or reading programs. They teach Phonics. Minimal after school 'extra curricular' activities. They had a wonderful art teach the first 3 years our child attended. The playgrounds are the paved parking lots! Parent involvement, PVC not PTA there is a big difference!

We have four children at St Catherines and we are very happy with the school. It is a wonderful community of teachers, children and parents. The dedication of the staff is remarkable. We are always welcome to volunteer and participate in school activities. We are blessed to have such a resource in our city.

We have four children currently attending St. Catherine's. The teachers we have had so far have been wonderful. Their education has been exceptional and they are above average in all their national test scores. The kids love the school and all the activities it offers. The school welcomes volunteers on a regular basis and I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time there. We could not be happier with our choice in schools.

My daughter has attended St. Catherines for 2 years now and the decision to send her there has been our best. The school challenges the children academically and instill in the children respect, responsibility and core values. The schoold also offers an afterschool program as well as ample extra curricular activities.

I have 2 children in St Catherines. The teachers are very challenging and expect nothing less than the 100%. Like any school you are going to have problems but I believe St Catherines is above board. Keep up the good work.

St. Catherine is a good school, with the potential to be great with new leadership. The current administration is quite rigid in its outlook and behind the times pedagogically. Parent involvement is kept to a bare minimum, except when it comes to fundraising expectations. That having been said, there are many excellent teachers, the facilities are good and well-maintained, and the students come from families who value education.

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.
