I am an old student of Regina Coeli and I regret having ever gone there. I went to public school for high school and was behind not only in athletics but in education as well. Luckily I was able to some what catch up, but the kids in my grad were ahead of me with both science and math...I wasnt even eligible for the higher classes, it had nothing to do with test scores. There were a few teachers that were good... i'd say 2-3 out of 8. Most had no idea what they were talking about, or would just give you workbooks to do all day while they would just sit and read. Or they would just let us play outside or inside all day. If you want your child to think for themselves and get ahead in life do not send them here. Oh and most of the friends I made in high school had higher morals and ethics than the ones I met in Regina Coeli.

I have been at RCS for the past 3 years.when I first went in on "Moving Up Day" everyone was soooo welcoming! I went to a public school before and it is not compared to how close everyone is and how caring all the teachers are. I have made the most terrific, wonderful friends here. Every student knows everyone's name Pre-k through 8th grade. We look out for eachother and guide the younger ones. We put on a production every year with the teachers directing it. We have basketball as a sport, band, art, music, P.E., computer, library, and literacy. This school expects high standards from each and every student, and if a certain student does not reach their goal then we help them get on the right path. All I have to say is that I couldn't have asked for a better school. This school is my home and I take care of it like everyone else.

I went to Regina Coeli School many years ago. I still have great memories of the school . There were many teachers that were great teachers and people. I was a very lucky to be a student at Regina Coeli School. The school help me form a foundation for my education and for my values that has guided me throughout my life/career. I would highly encourage any parent to consider sending there children to Regina Coeli School. I hope the school will be here for many more years to guide students for there education.

Highly regarded, experienced principal/educator hired Fall 2006 who has raised expectations & academic standards at all grade levels. Small classes. Teachers go above & beyond run afterschool program (prek & up) offering homework help, student council, Gr 5-8 afterschool intermurals, theater program (Gr 5-8) which puts on high caliber Spring musical production, & a technology program that is tops! Annual school yearbook (hardbound, in color) created digitally by 8th grade. Up to date computer lab; technology used to enhance curriculum & learning. Literacy program emphasized in early grades; lunch book clubs start in Gr 3. School science fair & talent show open to all students. Spanish begins grade 6, NYS Regents Earth Science & Algebra studied in Gr 8. The building blocks to successfully master challenging academics in gr 6-8 & beyond laid in early grades. Active, supportive parent community.

I have been extremely satisfied with Regina Coeli on every level thus far. My oldest has been there for the past 2 years and my youngest will begin next September. The class size is small and the teachers are gifted and caring. The principal is outstanding. I have seen an enormous difference in my son's attitude and self esteem. Highly recommended.

Regina Coeli is a good school. We don't offer the highest-quality education available, but the community is welcoming and (most of) the teachers are nice and knowledgeable of their subject area. The 'upstairs' (grades 6-8) is the best: interesting classes and great people make the learning experience fun. We don't have many sports: by this I mean we have basketball. That's it. Although it's surely not the best school in the area, Regina Coeli is a definitely unique learning place.

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.
