Excellent academics, outstanding teachers and such a warm sense of community, it almost feels like a second family. Our 3 children are students, and we have had nothing but positive experiences with all of the faculty and fellow families. We are so thankful we have found such a nurturing environment to provide them with the foundation of their education. One of the best parts, in my opinion, is the strong relationship between parents and educators. Parents are always strongly encouraged to be partners in their children's education and there are plenty of opportunities for parents to get involved. Over our many years there, we have had teachers call us at home, on a regular basis to discuss our children's progress, especially when they feel they have made a great achievement. Our children have even received postcards from teachers while on vacation. They really know how to not only grow their minds, but help make them feel important in every way. We feel very fortunate that our children have St. Lawrence School to help them grow, learn and shine!

When my son was in fourth grade, the teacher would have my son and another boy sit and do nothing while the other students did their cursive writing skills. Her excuse to my son was that she could not read his cursive. As a result, my son and his friend do now know how to write cursive or read cursive. This is a catholic school where I paid for my son to attend. This is not a public school. The purpose of a catholic school is to prepare my son for college.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
