Cardinal Pacelli offers an excellent, well rounded education as well as a supportive and engaged parent community. We are not Cincinnati natives and when we chose Pacelli for our children the welcoming community was a key part of our decision. We definitely made the right decision! We have children in 2nd, 4th and 8th grade. My 8th grader has had an amazing experience and is very well prepared for high school. All of my children enjoy playing sports for fun and being a part of a team. The teachers are dedicated and work with the parents to facilitate character development along with academic achievement. Our children have had opportunities at Pacelli for service projects, International travel and great Scout programs. Our experience has been extremely postive - we have happy, engaged children who are excited about going to school day after day.

Do not be fooled, Pacelli is NOT a good school! Most of its teachers are veeeery below average and hate teaching. The school revolves entirely on who is a "good Cincinnati family" and if you are not a part of a said family, you will be mostly excluded. The school also revolves around sports, and if you do not play a sport, you will also be excluded. It is EXTREMELY cliquey and the students aren't bright at all. If you're thinking about sending your child here, please look at other options.

Our son just graduated from Cardinal Pacelli School, and we have daughters in fourth and sixth grade. We are very pleased with the school, and in fact, our graduating son was admitted to McNicholas, Moeller, and St. Xavier--all with highest honors. The school just finished a beautiful renovation/addition, including a great new science lab. Cardinal Pacelli has caring teachers, active parents, excellent extracurricular activites, and a safe, nurturing learning environment.

Cardinal Pacelli School offers a great learning atmosphere, with newly renovated facilities and a welcoming parish community. The student/teacher ratio is excellent and their students routiniely graduate and continue at the HS of their choice (St. X, Ursula, Moeller, Ursuline, McNick, Summit, and Walnut Hills). My sons, in 1st and 3rd grade, are ahead of the curve academically and are well-mannered, resepctful children, due very much in part to Cardinal Pacelli School.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
