The 4th/5th grade teacher is not a good one He has favorites and makes terrible remarks. Other than that the school is fine.

You know the school is good when over 50% of the 7th graders get selected to participate in the Duke University TIPS programs. As it is a small school, the kids are pushed to their abilities (which is usually equal to or greater than their grade). Far better than the local public schools and tuition is fairly affordable, especially if you want your child to go to college (invest in them learning HOW TO LEARN now). It is a Catholic school that teaches a firm yet fair, traditional curriculum. The principal is tough, honest, and fair. Any lazy teachers have been weeded out. Lazy kids will have to get off their arses to make passing grades (a 69 is an F there). After-school tutoring is available on scheduled days. Kids will get religious education, which beats them having to go to CCD if they are Catholic. Parents are expected to help out at the school and spend time with their kids during homework. All in all an excellent school where your child will do their best but, like any school, it is up to the parent to help them reach their potential.

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.

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.
