I love this school. My daughter attends pre-k and she also loves it. The principal and asst. principal are very accessible for any of your needs. During the first month, parent and teachers conference was held. All parents were informed about what to expect for the school year and introduced to all of the staff. The school is warm and inviting. They also have a website to access newsletters from the principal and teachers. You can access your child's individual page which provides all homework assignments and any additional information from the school.

The principal is very personable and us aware off everything going on in the school. He knows each student and is aware of their personalities. I found that this school's math classes were way below the New York State requirements. Advanced students were taught at the same level as the failing students. Students who were advanced at the beginning of the school year saw no growth and would regress to the same level as students who were behind their grade level. Not enough home work.

Love this school!! The principal greets the children by their first names and is very hands on. The school is now called Our Lady's Catholic Academy and has had a new principal for two years. Mr Coyne has really turned the school around.

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 student 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.
