My children spent their entire grade school years here. It was their home away from home. The academic standards are excellent. The students from St. Ann School stand out when they go to high school. They are getting a fantastic education that is underscored by a strong faith. I know there are good public schools in this area, however that was never an option for my family, based on our conservative and religious beliefs.

I transferred my child here from another Catholic School, and I couldn't be more pleased. Top notch academics, and it is what an authentic Catholic education should look like.

We relocated from another state and couldn't be happier with this school. The teachers and staff are top notch. The school environment emphasizes academics but is engaging and nurturing as well. We are so happy with our choice. Our son just loves going to school everyday.

Joining the St. Ann School family was the best decision we've ever made for our children. This school is a hidden jewel. The academic standards are high and the environment is very nurturing. Prior to joining St. Ann's, we visited all of the other private schools in Central NJ. There is a warmth to this school that we did not find anywhere else. The teachers are the absolute best. They have high expectations and go the extra mile to help each child succeed, while reinforcing the values we teach our children at home. It's been amazing to see how our children have grown spiritually as well as academically. In addition to top notch academics, St. Ann's offers state of the art technology, music, art, library, World Language, PE and a long list of extra curricular activities, creating very well rounded, happy students! It is incredibly reassuring to know that our children will be well prepared for high school, college and whatever else they choose to pursue in their lives. We can't say enough about this school but we can tell you with absolute certainty that St. Ann's is the very best investment you can make in your child's future!

St Ann School is like a second home to my children! It's comforting to know that they are in such capable hands when I leave them there all day! The rigorous programs offered at St Ann School keeps my kids brains always thinking!!! We couldn't say enough about St Ann School!

My children attend St. Ann School and I am more grateful each day. St Ann offers more than any parent can expect from a school. At Saint Ann's, they are not just a number; each teacher and staff member truly care for them. This school is worth every penny and sacrifice we make to send our children there.

I am writing on behalf of my family, to articulate the reasons why we so love St. Ann s School. My husband (St. Ann s 79) and I felt strongly that we should share our perspective as parents because our children s Catholic education is the utmost importance to us. Seeing the academic and spiritual growth of our two children currently attending St. Ann s, we are in eager anticipation for their younger siblings to follow in their footsteps. When exploring our options of schools in the area, St. Ann s clearly stood out to us. The warmth, love and respect we experienced at out very first Open House made the decision easy for us. Now, we witness these aspects of St. Ann s first hand through our second grader and kindergartener. Specifically, the high academic standards instilled in our children at a very young age remind us as parents that pride in your work and joy in education are something to be treasured. For this, we thank the teachers at St. Ann s for their dedication to helping our children learn and grow. It is our desire for our children that St. Ann s continue to instill the values and work ethic in the years ahead for the school. As parents, we commit ourselves to support this school out of appreciation for the blessings from St. Ann s.

In 2007 We enrolled our son in St. Ann's for their Pre-K program. We were planning on sending him through the Bridgewater School system for kindergarten and beyond. After only a few months we saw that the teachers and the nuns offered something quite different than what I saw happening at the public schools. In 2009 we enrolled our youngest son there as well. St. Ann School is giving our boys a solid educational and spiritual foundation. One day they will look back and thank us for giving them the gift of a Catholic School Education. Although, it would have been easier on us finacially to send them through the public school system, the sacrifices that we make are well worth it. George Pantozzi Bridgewater NJ

My three children attend this school. A fourth child will be starting Sept 2010. This fine school provides a learning environment where the teachers are able to provide individual care. My children are not lost in the school system. The teachers are very good -- they know exactly what children are about and have the experience to know how to correctly guide the children. The teachers all have a passion for teaching and for caring. Their love for teaching shows in everything they do. I am a graduate of St. Ann s School. I am very pleased and proud to have my children walk the halls that I used to walk. They will learn in the same nurturing environment that I was raised.

I have some very bright kids and St Ann's has proved to be a wonderful environment for them. It is a loving school with good discipline and very high academic standards.

St. Ann School was the first choice for my children's education because, academically, the students are challenged to achieve their best. There are many religious activities to reenforce their in school religious learning and experience.

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.
