I would NEVER recommend this school. Too many people leave disgruntled. Parent participation is essential for a school to succeed. Where are the parents?

This school and its current principal came highly recommended to me. I toured the school and spent quite a bit of time talking with the principal. She is an exceptionally talented educator and administrator, and I was also impressed by her candor and practicality. I would feel quite comfortable sending my children here, though we may not get in due to a wait list in our needed grades.

The principal of this school is non conforming to the school's own handbook policies. The academics are less than what a Catholic school's should be. The loss of more than 10 children and six teachers should be a serious warning for anyone looking for a quality school

My son has been going here from the past three years. He loves it and has made many lasting friendships. He has excelled in his classes. The teachers are great and the extra curricular activites are nice because the get to play with other schools.

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.
