This school provides an excellent grounding for girls to get a great education in a positive and nurturing environment. The classes are small, and the teachers are dedicated.

I graduated from Fontbonne Hall Academy with Honors in 2002 - it was a wonderful 4 years, which not only prepared me for college (attended St.John's Universtiy with scholarship), but for life. The small, classroom setting and intimate, family-like atmosphere helped build a strong foundation for my future. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a school that you could call a second home, a school where there is a lot of one-on-one teacher/student interaction which will help you excel and never feel like you can't catch-up.

Fontbonne Hall Academy is an amazing high school, and I know that it will get me to reaching academic excellence. Fontbonne has shaped me into a proper, well-rounded, intellegent, mature young woman, and has academically prepared me for college and has made me into a woman of the future.

This school has available resources to children during school, and after school. There is extra curricular activities such as certain clubs to attend after school and sports to enroll in throughout the year. It has amazing opportunities for young women seeking a bright future.

Snobby, prep-school for well-to-do girls in a well-to-do area, a little light on academics and heavy on snobbery. Smart girls are held back and bored to death

fontbonne hall is asmall all girls catholic highschool situated in the most beautiful setting in brooklyn.. The girls attending achieve excellence and always go on to college. Its a very informal atmosphere of houses on the campus, thus making the 4 years your daughter attend this school feel at home.. For me it is the very best education a young lady can have.regardless of her religion.

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.
