Best kept secret in this area. Excellent teachers, well-mannered students, and their biggest asset, a principal who is a strong leader in hold of the school, cares about each and every students , great effort in whats best for each and every one of them. My child went to shool here, and by luck, was in a learning environment that is safe, warm ,friendly ,non-judgemental, academically challenging, all created by this wonderful principal! More power to this school !

I absolutely love this school. It was were I went to school in the 80's. My two children now attend. The principal is firm, yet very pleasant and fair. The school itself is in better condition then when I attended. I just miss the sisters and friars presence when I was a parishioner.

One of the greatest school on the upper east side for growing young adults. A place were all people can get along and become great friends. Through all my years there I felt a great sense of friendship and well being.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
