St. Leo is a school that nurtures. It offers many things beyond the scope of a great academic foundation. Teachers and parents work together to offer afterschool sports, technology and pursuit in fine arts. My children attend st. Leo's as i did and my own mom. St. Leo's is a vital piece of our town.

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.
