This school portrays it's self as and all girls school but then they turn around and allow boys to come in the school and mingle with the girls,they want to have it both ways TOTALLY MIS-LEADING.This school has a bully problem and they won't address it for fear it would ruin there so-called perfect image and they'd loose Big Money Donors.My daughters grades dropped 20 points since enrolling in this school and she's barely passing.The teachers are mean to my daughter and to me and totally UNCARING to the point where they made my daughter cry.I've spent a ton of money sending my daughter to this school and it was totally a waste of my MONEY.DEFINETLY NEVER SEND YOUR DAUGHTER HERE.THEY DON'T CARE!!! This school is totally overated with no Morals, they claim there a religous school and a all girls school but guys are constantly in the school harassing the girls and they feel it's perfectly o.k.

It has been the number one high school in the WNY for a long time. The school's commitment to the academic, spiritual, character and emotional development is unmatched. There is no better place for a young woman's education than at Nardin.

Academics are great except some bio and chem teachers. They know their stuff but aren't tuned in to kids and's tough sometimes. All else is great, the English department must be one of the best anywhere. Math is good but they need AP Calc BC. Sports are very competitive. Arts program is good, but all music lessons are paid for by you. Parent involvement is good. Principal is excellent. Tuition is tough, in my 10+ yr association w/Nardin tuition has more than doubled.

The curriculum at Nardin High School is extremely rigorous but prepares students for college. The school tends to be stressful, but the endless amounts of homework truly mold the young women into very wise, well-rounded citizens. On a positive note, the majority of girls who attend Nardin love it mainly because of the friendships they develop over the four year period. My daughter would never leave Nardin Academy, and she has developed strong relationships with her teachers as well. The principal is excellent and the extracurriculars are highly competitive. I know the all-girls school may upset some, but it teaches the girls to be independent. I feel that when my daughter graduates, she will leave with one of the best educations in the country as well as a feeling of self-confidence to serve her well in the real world. I highly recommend this school for all girls searching for a challenge!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
