I am not a parent but a 2002 graduate. Cabrini is a wonderful school and unlike any other. My class, which consisted of 92 girls, graduated and all entered colleges of high standards with financial aid ranging from partial scholarships and grants to full scholarships and enough aide to cover all four years with surplusses. Cabrini teachers have won awards and the school itself has earned two Blue Ribbon Awards. They have one of the state's leading Drum Corps; winning more first place awards than any other band. The school patron, St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, founder and saint, is a role model that influences every young woman that enters Cabrini High's doors. A dedicated, persevering woman that never gave up and did her best to help everyone within her reach. Going to Cabrini was one of the best things I could have done and I thank my techers for everything.

This is a school with a mission and a purpose. A school that educates not only the minds but also the hearts of our youth.

My daughter is at MCHS. I m very pleased with the performance of the school. They have challenging classes and very capable teachers. The principal is all the time willing to help and encourage the students to give the best of them. My girl was coming from a public school and in the first year of HS was having some problems in the English class, this year she is going to 11th grade and is going to be in all honor classes.

Not a parent, but a graduate who is very proud of her alma mater. As a youth volunteer in an elementary school, I recommend it to many parents of eigth grade girls. This school empowered me to become the person I am today. I am well respected and have a lot of self respect and self discipline.

Cabrini High School is not what it should be. The best thing it has to offer to its student is their drumcorps. A normal class size consist of 25 students per teacher.

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.
