Blessed Sacrament School is a great school. The teachers are caring and accessible and care about each student. Students are encouraged to do the very best they can. I love the feeling of a small community and there's even a Parish church right next door. I feel content knowing my child is in a safe environment. The academics are everything they should be and the school is keeping up with the every changing technology. They currently use an interactive whiteboard which enhances teaching techniques. They have many after school clubs that are either free of charge or a small fee of $10.00. Cooking, knitting, chess, newspaper, future cities, and art club. Children are taught kindness, compassion, morals, and community service towards the needy. I highly recommend Blessed Sacrament.

Excellent school. Principal is an excellent leader gentle but respected by the children. Pre-K and kindergarten teachers are superb. Staff is caring and compassionate. The children are taught wonderful values. Many activities to benefit the needy. My kids have been very happy and we've been pleased with their progress. They've expanded the phys ed program (a good thing). The playground is very small and could use a facelift but there is a park across the street.

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.
