We are very pleased with the education, discipline and caring enviroment in which St. Cyril is able and willing to give our child. We were so nervous about wheather or not we were choosing the right school for our daughter or not and with the lords will this is where she ended up starting her education and it has been a satisfying 2 years and counting. We hope the enviroment and education remains the same thoughtout the remaining years at St. Cyril.

Simply outstanding! A loving/caring teaching enviornment in which our children can truly thrive both academically and spiritually. I can be sure that my children are safe and well cared for. In addition they have an exceptional special education program for children with ADHD. This program has been a Godsend for my family. It far surpasses any public school program and I wish with all my heart that there was this kind of help for ADHD children in every catholic and 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.
