This school has great teachers that care. The students are welcoming and respectful. They have extra curricular activities such as choir, honors classes and track. My child loves going to school!

I went to Pres K-8th and I loved every minute of it. Would definitely do it again.

This is my daughters 2nd yr at Presentation and i am very pleased, she adjusted very well, small class sizes is a plus, and the teachers are great, wanted to send my 4yr old but not for 3 days, think that is a stupid move, what would i do the other 3 days? so I had to place her somewhere else. The bus service is great, makes my life so much easier, there is hardly a Catholic school with free bus service

This is my son's second year at Presentation Elementary school and his progress and advancement has been tremendous. The parent participation and envolvement is encourged and welcomed. It was very hard for him transferring into a new school at the fifth grade level but the transition has been pretty painless for him and he's adjusted well.

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.
