School was just awarded Blue Ribbon status making it one of the top elementary schools in the country based on achievement tests. The school does what it is supposed to do: teach the basics well and as an added bonus Religion and its accompanying morals, proper behavior, manners, etc. Most schools would jump up and down to have this award and the quality of students and teachers speaks for itself.

When I went here, there was no foreign language, art or music. Now the school is called "All Saints." I would check: is whoever teaches language, art and music actually certified in that subject? And, does that person hold a degree in either that subject area on in the teaching of the subject? Bullying was a problem. If you have a boy, make sure you hold him back a year or he'll be two years younger than all the other children. All of the parents hold their boys back a year or two to play football. "Art" in 7th grade was a coloring book sheet distributed by the nun along with some crayons. In 6th grade it was a wire frame that we were supposed to tie pieces of yarn on in order to make a Christmas wreath. One plus: the library has a lot of great books that have never been read by anyone. If you want to turn your children into lapsed Catholics, send them to this school.

Tremendous school from top to bottom. All schools aren't perfect but St. Ann's is pretty close. When you think that the cost of the education is about half as expensive as the cost to educate a child in public schools, you know you are getting your money's worth. Any public school would be happy to have the test scores and high school acceptance rates that St. Ann's generates.

There is a new principal this year that has really 'energized' the school. From what I hear, her efforts are resulting in several transfer in students for next year from other private schools. She is a real people person who is very result oriented and focused on achievement prep which the private high schools in area require.

The poster below is right about the test scores. Much higher than peer schools throughout area. And as an educator, the post below referencing inconsistent faculty is a fact of life at every school. All in all, our friends who sent their kids here are at or near the top of their high school classes. The bottom line is that this school provides a strong foundation in the 3 R's. More schools should be following their example.

A great school. We found that the kids score higher here than local public as well as area private schools.

Tremendous inconsistency of faculty. It seems that students do nothing but complete workbook pages throughout the day. Innovative instruction is lacking.

St. Ann is not a perfect school; but what school is? If you want your child to learn civility and respect in a no tolerance atmosphere, I'd recommend it. My children are taught in a top notch curriculum. The teachers are generally committed and responsive. The sports programs are great because of the dedicated parent volunteers. Every 8th grader last year was accepted to their first high school choice, which says a lot for the education, I believe. As far as the reading in the upper school, children read what they want and write about the book. They must read 1 hour each night and write about what they read. I give St. Ann's an A-plus with extra credit.

St Ann's is a wonderful school. The parents are very involved, and the teachers are very engaged when it comes to making sure the students have learned the needed material.

Don't bother wasting your time or money here. It can be better invested in public schools. As a former student, i was taunted and teased by almost EVERY student (with 30 per grade, there's not a lot of room to make friends). If your child isn't part of the 'in crowd' with the church in kindergarden, the next years are going to be horrible like they were for me. Don't waste your time or money.

St. Anns provides a welcoming, friendly environment for younger students. However, the school is just not up to snuff academically for older students. There is no challenge in the curriculum. 8th graders read books with a reading level of 5 (designating 5th grade), such as The Westing Game. The math program is also severely lacking, moving at a much slower pace than most other schools. The science program in the junior high is, however, terriffic. It is a shame that graduating students may be deficient in so many other areas.

St. Ann is a wonderful school environment for a full range of children and their abilities. The school is well run, organized, and caring. My children not only achieve academically buy learn kindness, manners and concern for others. I see a big difference in my children since they left public school and attended St. Ann. I am very impressed with the administration, teachers and staff. They have helped my children learn in many areas. St Ann educates the whole person. There are many 'extras' at St. Ann: music - band, music lessons, vocal, choir; sports; art; language - French & Spanish. The science labs are state of the art. Labs of this caliber are not usually found in a grade school. K-8 uses the science labs. The building is well maintained, bright, clean and safe. Children eat lunch at school.

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.
