I love this school. My son is only in K but he has learned so much. He is able to read a book and count money. I love how the teachers interact with the students and the parents. The parents are very involved. It is totally worth the money.

Blessed sacrament is a n excellent school. The addition of Music and Spanish has completed a well-rounded curriculum. The principal is very much into the children's welfare anfdis ver accomodating to the parents. The teachers for the most part are attuned to the students' needs. keep up the good work!

This has been a great school year. Many new things have added great flavor. The school now has a Library, Computer Lab, Art, a redesigned playground, Honor Roll, Field Trips and Book Fairs. My child has been so happy that it makes me feel that I am spending my money well.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
