Absolutely Terrible! My child and I were both treated aweful by Mrs. Casper, her assistant and the principal. After a great pre-K experience there, we only made it 3 months into kindergarten before I had to switch schools. My child cried every morning for a week that he was mistreated there before I went and saw it with my own eyes. Avoid this sorry excuse for a school at all costs! The public school he attends now is much better and the teachers and principal are much more educated, knowledgable and ethical. Also, be aware that they record incoming calls without your knowledge!

St Charles is a great school. The pre-school program is a nurturing positive atmosphere with a wonderful staff. I could not have asked for a better school.

My children attend St. Charles and are receiving the best education I could hope for. Thankfully they are excelling in their classwork, but the school does offer extra help for the children who need it, the IU even offers speech and counseling services there. The principal and every teacher are totally committed to ensuring that each child receives an exceptional education. We sacrifice to send them to a school where their education is the priority and they are loved and safe. SCB students consistently score in the top percent on the standardized tests and I would highly recommend this school.

I went to saint charles and I dont recomend you go there. There is hardly enough one on one time between student and teacher. the school is small and there is usually only one classroom per grade. I found my experience there good and bad. The good is that I made friends that will last a lifetime and the bad is that I am sort of behind academicly because we only finished about half the book when other schools were ahead of us.

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 »
