My daughter attends the school and I'm not pleased at all. The teaching is poor and the staff are rude and disrespectful. The secretary Ms. Flores is especially unpleasant and I can know longer deal with the school

I am so saddened by the reviews I'm reading. I graduated from St. Ann School a long time ago, in 1970. I have wonderful memories & got an outstanding education which more then prepared me for college. It was run by the Dominican Sisters then, I'm sure that the fact that there aren't any nuns left makes a big difference. They devoted their lives to teaching us.

St. Ann's would be great if there was a new principal. She doesn't let the students or teachers do anything to make the school better. She has to control everything and because of that nothing ever really gets done. She's cheap and doesn't fix or buy new things. Drinking fountains and sinks are broken. What is good are the teachers. They try hard and care about the kids.

I go to this school and there is lots of swearing and bullying. Some of the teachers don't really care about the students. There are only two outstanding teachers. These two teachers are enthusiastic about teaching the kids and actually enjoy being at work. The principal is to strict. She will come to the cafeteria and yell at kids when she could just address it in a subtle way. In the past there have been numerous fights were strict disciplinary action was needed. She would suspend people for a week but the people would come back the next day. The principal would be strict when its not needed and would not be strict when discipline is needed. This school is a horrible school to go to. your best bet is to go to another school.

This school is the worst school in the bronx. So sad that money was spent for a poor education. No extra help from the teachers. The Math teacher is the worst. Giving one star to this school is being nice!!!

TERRIBLE SCHOOL, JUST SEND YOUR CHILD TO ST.BRENDAN'S.. Much better education there, in fact, I attend there and am graduating this year. Our computer class is taught by my classmates mother so she knows whats going on and takes whatever we are doing and teaches us it in class.

While the school does offer a much safer and more academically oriented environment than the neighboring public schools, the teachers are at best, below average. They are heavily biased against certain students while heavily favoring others. It is highly unfortunate that the most memorable teacher was a mysterious man named Mr. T or Mr. Turner (I cannot completely accurately recall), not because he was the Physical Education teacher, but because he was the only faculty member there capable of presenting any leadership qualities. He knew exactly when to be stern and when to go easy unlike many of the other untalented teachers who would simply go in one way to the extreme. I do not regret coming to this school but I would never recommend it to anyone else unless they had no other choice but to attend the nearby public schools offered.

I feel very safe with my child attending this school. I'm also satified what my child has learned so far. Its true the school does look old but are the children there for a fashion show or to learn. and so far each grade my child was in has computers. Not sure what school these parents are refering too.

This school is not worth it. There is no computer classes in this school. There is no discipline nor respect to each of the students . In other words this school is horrible!!

Saint Ann offers a safe learning environment for children with excellent, qualified New York State teachers. There is an after school program available for those who are not available to pick up their children at the regular dismissal time which is at 2:50. The after school program runs from 3-6:30 p.m.

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.
