Terrible teachers, Wannabe Gangster Kids, and Awful Communication between Kids and Teachers. Teachers are to blame, they do not teach the kids well enough to be prepared for tests, In my opinion, its one of the worst catholic schools in the district

I graduated in 1991 and have very fond memories of the school. When I attended, the school is rich with team spirit, a disciplinary prinicpal and teachers, an incredible support staff and just a wonderful environment. What I remembered most(besides great friendships) was that the school made learning fun. My son, who is currently in the fifth grade, is attending the school, with the same prinicpal. I plan on enrolling my younger son in a few years. I highly recommend Saint Adalberts.

Average to below average teacher quality and poor communication between the school and parents make this school subpar.

I am now a senior in highschool and can still recall the amazing days at St. Adalbert's. I am one of four kids in my family that have graduated there and still have a younger sibling attending. Not once did I regret the experiences I had there, I loved it. It's such a heart warming place that not only cares about giving you a great education but about you as a person as well. The principle is beyond helpful and goes out of her way to give you the best experience you can have. Her faculty and staff are some of the best people you'll ever meet. Sending your child there would be the smartest and best thing you can possible do for him/her. There are so many times I wish I could just go back there. The atmosphere of the school is so family-like and they make everyone feel welcomed.

I go to this school and it's highly recommended. I'm in the seventh grade, the principal and teachers are truly helpful. In this school, there is a no-BULLYING zone! :)

I went there for 8 years, graduated to St.Francis Prep, and will never regret going there. The principal is great, all my teachers were fun and great at what they did. I made so many friends there as well. It is an all-around fantastic school. I would definitely recommend it to a younger child just entering Kindergarten.

I would not recommend this this school. The school only cares about tuition, is rude to parents and there have been scandals in the past. I was a former Student and found the school to be a sad state.

I love this school, the kids from lower grade to higher grade knows each other and the Principal is always there watch the kids during lunch break. It is just like one family. If we weren't moving to a new place I am not taking out my kids from that school.

St. Adalbert's is for children from Nursery School through Grade 8. The teachers are excellent. They emphasize discipline but their warmth and caring are never absent. There are lots of extra-curricular activities, including scouting, basketball, and baseball. The have a music program. All students have art class and computer instruction, in addition to the basic school curriculum. There is also an honors program for gifted students. They offer after school care for a small charge to accommodate working parents. Also, during most times off they have camp the children can attend. In this time of fiscal hardship, resulting in the closure of so many Catholic schools, St. Adalbert stayed open due to its consistently high enrollment and community involvement.

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.

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.
