I just graduated from St. Charles School 2 days ago, and I am already missing the love and compassion St. Charles School gives to each person that walks into those front doors. The academics at St. Charles are GREAT! The past four years at Bonner, the valedictorian has been from SCS. There have been numerous Neumann Scholars, which are students who have passed an extremely challenging test, from SCS. The music program is excellent! The music director is Mrs. Judge, who runs the Children s Choir, and cares for every child she teaches. The parents are the key part of SCS. They run a pizza lunch once a week and they are there almost every day to help whatever is needed. If you did not hear about the Principal Sister Irene, you must not live close to school. She is the BEST principal I have ever had. I really love her!

St. Charles was a great time. Hard times but i made the best of friends. I would never forget what I did and what I learned. I was brought up at St. Charles and it made me who I am today! St. Charles had a big impact on my life and I will always miss it. Class of 2005 <3 love you's

As alumni, we saw St. Charles as the gateway to beginning our future. Its academic quality was outstanding and helped us excel into a college prep school.

I love St. Charles because I have been there for 8 years, and this will be my last year there. They have great teachers, and we make it to the academic bowl every year.

Without any doubt.. Jesus is present from the time that you first step in the school. Sister Irene the principal is a wonderful person that believes and practices love and guidance in the name of Jesus Christ. A very good school that focuses in our children welfare , success and christian doctrine.

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 student 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.
