My children have attended this school since its founding as a consolidation of all the Catholic schools in Hoboken in 1999. My oldest got excellent high school admission test scores, acceptances at all the High Schools she applied to plus several scholarships. The school is a traditional Catholic school, safe, strict, orderly, disciplined. Compared with the area public schools, the students are polite and well-mannered. The top-notch principal maintains a high level of academic excellence. They learn a lot, get lots of homework, and do very well on standarized tests. It is very old-fashioned, not for those who like it loose and modern. They have an excellent sports program, volleyball, basketball, etc., and a great music and drama program, aftercare, summer, hot lunch. Parents do a lot of fundraising. They are involved, but they don't have a lot of input, it's mostly dictated by the archdiocesean rules/tradition, but it works!
