I am new to this school but so far I like it. They are well organized and the kids wear their uniforms. There is good communication between the school and parents.

Parents think that sending their kids to a Catholic school will help them develop a good moral compass while getting a good education. If you choose Nativity, you won't be getting what you expected. Morals at this school are really low, and the education isn't exactly the best.

I am a parent whose children originally attended St. Stan's. After the merger with Nativity my second grader transferred over. Unlike my experience at st. stan's, which was wonderful, Nativity was not. It was inferior in every way.

Nativity is a wonderful academic and social environment for students. The school builds on the moral and values taught by parents, as well as teaching caracter education in conjunction with the academic subjects. Nativity truly prepares our youngsters to compete with the rest of the world.

My daughter attended Kindergarten since Sept.'05 and she loves this school so much. The class has about 17 students. The class room is big, beautiful and it has its own bathroom. The Kindergarten teacher is wonderful and she cares about every student with lots of patient. They had a great 'Spring Show' in mid-March and the show was great. It's a very nice school.

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.
