St. El's is a great school. The administration is unbelievable, outgoing and all around perfect for the school. St. Eleanor provides everything a kid could want or need. The building is absolutely spotless due to some of the best maintenance staff I have ever seen! Can't say enough about it! PS. Parental involvement is not important in everything the kids do. It's just fine if not too much at St. Eleanor and the administration has nothing to do with it.

I feel very fortunate to have my children in a school that gives them a high quality education in an environment tht reinforces our faith and values we have at home. Through the numerous opportunities I've had to volunteer at St. Eleanor's I have observed a loving, faith-filled school where the teachers strive to meet the individual needs of each child. I have seen teachers recognize the different learning styles children have and I like the cooperative learning activities I've seen that promote teamwork and respect for others. I also like the emphasis on reading--Read Alouds and SSR in the classroom. This school is also fortunate to have reading and math specialists as well as a school counselor. In addition to the variety of sports available, they also have a jazz band and Reading Olympics teams. There is something for everyone here.

Parental involvement is low, not because for a lack of trying but because of the current exclusionary stand by the administration. Over all it is a very good school educationally and from a personal standpoint as well.

I have two children that attend Saint Eleanor School. I could not be happier with the quality education they receive or the respect they are taught at school. Catholic schools are not just about incorporating religion into a child's everyday school experience - it's more about motivated teachers who want to teach (they get paid less than public school teachers) and children who want to learn. Catholic schools do not tolorate behaviors that may be tolorated in the public school system.

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.
