I was a resident in 1993 & this place should be shut down!! People please don't ever send your child here! If you want the really scoop on this place look them up on ripoffreport, most of the stories are true on there! This site makes you choose at least one star in reality it does not deserve one star but, I unfortunately have to give it one so I can make parents aware of the dangers of this place!

Madonna Heights residential program offers a caring and safe environment. My daughter was there and I am having her readmitted to the school.

I was a student here for many years and never once had a problem. The sisters and staff were great in all areas.

My name is Josephine Morales (age 21) a former student and resident of Madonna Heights. I love MH is the greatest thing that has happened to me. They teach you values, morals, appreciation and most of all they treat you with respect. The staff are wonderful people, they don't just teach you; they care about your well-being. Yeah! there are some that don't use their time wisely while they're in the facility, but most of them leave Madonna Heights with their head up high and mentally able to deal with everyday life struggles. That's what you call A job well done!

Madonna Heights cottage is repulsively the most poor excuse for a residential program for girls. I would know because I was a resident there from 4/00 until 10/31. It limits the girls from learning basic living skills. I recommend the RTC program in the main building as the enviorment is more warming and bearable.

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.
