School is really bad staff are mean to kids. They only care about the money it is small,the school has very little money. The art, music, and science lab shares one room. That's why it's closing down

A little "Gem" in the Bronx! The new Principal and staff are great and respond quickly to any inquiries I may have. I have also heard this from many parents. The class sizes are small so students do not get lost in the shuffle. My child is very happy here especially with the changes implemented by our new principal. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND ST. ANTHONY'S, CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELF!

It is hard to find a good school for your child, I chose St. Anthony for my child because it was smaller and has a family feel to it. I think its a good school and my child is learning but I also I agree with some of the other parents that there is no communication between school and parents. As far as the principal being warm and caring, one complaint about your child and your child is treated like the black sheep from the faculty. Kids are kids and they shouldn't be made to feel like that.

This is our first experience with St. Anthony's School. We had a rough start but things are better know. I would like to say that Mrs. Quiones the Kindergarten teacher's is really pushing her students to succeed in life. I appreciate her travel so far of a distance to educated my child. I think that every community needs a school like St. Anthony's in there community. I would like to see more activites for the younger students and more extended care for them as well. Kindergarten needs to be more involed in there school.

Ptinciple is hard headed and lacks communication to parents, gives back wrong amounts of tuition paybacks, and does not set enough after school activities.

St. Anthony is a wonderful school, with many students waiting to get in. The principal is a warm and caring person, who is always there for her students. Anyone who gives this school a bad rating has a problem, and probably didn't get their way. I would recommend this school to any parent who wants a quality education for their children. St. Anthony has been like a second family to my children. I wish there were more schools like this one!

St. Antony is a wonderful school thats provides kids with a great education. The principal is very a nice, warm and caring person. She is always there for her students. The principal provides wonderful communication with the parents, and will do everything she can to help. I disagree with the last parent who said there was a lack of communication with the parents, that is a far from the truth. The parent is probably upset because they didn't get their way. If that was the case there would'nt be a waiting list to get in the school in the first place! I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a quality education for their children. St. Anthony is like a second family to us. The door is always open to come and speak to the principal, she will listen to all your problems, she is wonderful!

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.

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.
