I heard this is a good school and i went to see for myself and it turns out teachers and children have a great relationship not only academically, but also socially. I would really recommend this school to any parent that is looking for a safe and beautiful school for their children. catch ya later!!

I love st.Lukes. The school teaches you positive self-concept and respect. Each individual earns and gets respect. St.Luke is extraordinary and a excellent school- gio g.

saint lukes is a great school. they are all welcoming this is also my last year.i've been here since kindergarden and for these past 9 years saint lukes has been nothing but a home.the teachers do care about you and make sure that you try your best.if they see that the students dont understand the work they stay afterschool and do what is possible in order to help you.the students welcome you in quickly.this year students from st.pius were welcomed in and they all have made many friends. everyone knows eachother.the principal is very caring and kind. i know that im going to truly miss the school because it is the place to be. -paola

My daughter has been in this school for three years now and so far so good. Her first and second grade teachers were magnificent, although her third grade teacher got off to a rough start all seems to be good now. From a well involved parent.

St. Luke is a pretty good school. My sons enjoy attending St. Luke School. My oldest is finishing the fifth grade and he received 4 awards including 2nd honors. My middle son is finishing the 3rd grade. It starts off difficult for him but towards the end he improved dramaticly. As in many schools, you have great teachers who cares and some teachers which the students and the parents bud heads. But in general, the school is great.

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.
