What a great school. Holy Cross was a great school for my kids and it is a shame that the Trenton Diocese closed the school.

Holy Cross school is an excellent school! My daughter has been enrolled there since the PreSchool Three Year Old Program. She has learned so much both academically and spiritually. Holy Cross School is a very warm and safe environment filled with very dedicated teachers and staff. There is no better school in our mind. Our parents are very involved in our school and we have a great P.T.A. and loving Principal.

We had a very bad experience with this school. The teachers never sent any notifications home to inform parents of what was going on.Lack of discipline. My child was bullied and got hurt while in the classroom. When we found out, the administration tried to cover their tracks. Fell below my expectations. Public school is actually much better. My child's Terra Nova test scores fell below average, went from a A student to a C & D average. We had to send our child back to school in our district. Her test scores improved the following year.

Holy Cross School provided our three children with an excellent education. The religious and lay faculty and staff, sports coaches and parent volounteers,created a family atmosphere in which the students thrived. Holy Cross students are special. They stand out in high school and they stand out in college and in life. They are strong people with excellent leaadership skills. I don't know what the secret is, but I suspect that it's prayer and an unswerving dedication to educating todays youth to be tomorrow's leaders. Our childen are fortunate to have received a Holy Cross 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.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
