Fantastic school!!! My 2 kids went from Pre K to 8th Grade and have done so well with the foundation supplied by St Fidelis teachers and staff. If you are looking for a great place for your children to learn and grow you must enroll them in St. Fidelis.

My child has attended this school since Pre-K. The school is great, the academics and devotion of the teachers is great. The morals and values added to the academics make is a well rounded school. There is a very good open communication between the teachers and parents. Parents are very much open to contribute to all aspects of their childs education. Safety is a priority for the children. I highly recommend this school.

I have one child who has graduated from St Fidelis and have found that they do not prepare students well enough for High School. They only start in the 8th grade and that is too late. I think the 6th,7th and 8th grades should be more geared toward preparing for high school as far as course work is concerned. They I feel tend to oversimplify work in the 6th and 7th grades. I also feel the principal should be more parent and student oriented. He seems to spend too much time out of sight.

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.
