With all of the positive comments about the school, the teachers, principal and the great education the children receive, one BIG important item is missing for a Catholic School. What is done to make the children grow in their faith. Are there Religion classes? What spiritual activities are done? Rosary, morning and afternoon prayer? Weekly Mass? Confession? Taking the children to the Church once in a while to explain different things around the Church, stations of the Cross, Sanctuary Lamp, etc. It would be better if the Pastor and the Priests teach the Religion part of the curriculum since we do not have anymore dedicated Nuns and Brothers. I personally think that a Roman Cathjolic school should only be for Catholic students. While the ABC's are extremely important, a Catholic School has a Religious mission and that is the teaching and practice of the Catholic faith.

This is a wonderful school for your child to learn and grow. The teachers are a mix of no nonsense teaching and compasion and caring guidance. Both my sons have attended since kindergarten, ad have fostered respectful, open and friendly repore with the teachers, as well as the principal. The only negative side is that because it's a small school, they don't have alot of yard space to run around, and gym is only once a week. But it's a great school to set your kids on the right academic track. They also offer ESL.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
