The teachers at this school are very effective. They maintain order in the classroom and make sure each student understand the lesson.

I'm an alum student that graduated back with the class of 2009. I was happy with this school until I reached the middle school years. It's actually noticeable that there really is no diversity. You'll have your Italian, Irish, and Albanian kids and if you're not one of these you'll be treated like an outcast by your peers. Have experienced it. The principal did nothing but make me sit with the kids who bullied me when it came to attention it was happening. The kids are harsh by sixth grade. The teachers are pretty good. School could improve a lot more.

Community and parental involvement is excellent. Principal is excellent and knows every student and parent. She has been there for over 2o years, runs a tight ship, and doesnt change much. Some techers are better than others but as a whole are great. Alot of extra curricular activities. Everything else could be debatable but no school is perfect.

This school can be explained in one word horrible. The teachers work the kids like mules, giving them work that is at High School and College level. They ruin your child's summer by adding more work than they already have. The school itself still has the appearance it would had when in first opened in the mid 90s, such as old desks and radiators. Overall this school isn't great and doesn't even deserve one star

Love the school, all the teachers are certify meaning all have their master degrees and are up to date. The classes are a bit large about 30+, but no more than 35 kids. But when that is the case there is a teachers aid to assist. The principal makes a point to know each child and their parent by name. If there is any issues Sister MaryAlice nips it on the butt right away. I do recommend this school. Not to mention that 4 students made it to Regis High School last year which is a record, normally one or two make each year. Someone made a comment about no diversity that is not true, you have Latins, Indians, African American, Asian and so on in this school.

Great environment--everyone seems to share the same values so you know you have your child in a place they can be safe and learn. The academics are up to date and the staff seems very good. My children like the teachers and they do a fine job.

horrible school. you will find no diversity among students and children end up worse than they would if they had gone to a normal public school

It is a wonderful school with great academics. It offers children a challenge and staff is present if help is needed.

Academics are great. Music, art, sports and extracurricular activities available. Lots of parent/community involvement. Very caring environment for children. Principal and administration knows all children and parent/guardians by name. Best education I can ask for for my children.

Great school, but class size is much too big. 30+ students per class. No programs for special or gifted children.
