Our children love this school. The combination of quality teachers, a dedicated principal, and Christian values are lessons they will carry with them for years to come . We couldn't be happier with the education they have received for the past 7 years.

Leadership is lacking, administrative personnel are often surly and rude. There are only a handful of decent teachers at the school. Entirely too much yelling goes on due to lack of control by teachers and principal. There are many other options besides this school. The school is old and needs major repairs. Not a pleasant learning experience for children.

I love this school! The faculty and staff are always informative and willing to go above and beyond for my child! The teachers that I have been involved with in the last three years have been extremely helpful and willing to use new techniques that are stimulating and fun for my daughter. I would recommend any parent who lives in our community to reach out to the school for more information.

We are extremely pleased with the education our children have and continue to receive at St. Ann School. We have been members of the St. Ann School family for 11 years. We love all that St Ann has done for us over the years and we continue to volunteer and be an active member of our school family

St Ann School has an excellent preschool /Pre-K program. The children are stimulated in all areas of developement both academically and spiritually. The teachers in the class are very caring and nurturing and set appropriate boundaries. Their focus on Christian values and morals at this young age is exceptional and provides a solid base for which the child can develop effective social, academic and interpersonal skills. They treat each child as an individual and are very sensitive to the various needs within the class.

St. Ann School has given my children to learn in a digital era and yet have a special partnership with God. It is a grand school with staff that are open to ideas, and demonstrate good christian beliefs. It is money worth the investment! David Heiser

While on the surface the offerings of this school might not compare with the 'extras' of a local public school, they hold their own against the area's finest. (They do have some sports, and they are very good.) Quality teachers, small class sizes, high classroom expectations for students, few discipline problems; teaching of personal responsibility, ethical behavior, critical thinking; students are highly engaged in their daily academic activities. Lots of emphasis on developing good communications skills. High level of parental involvement. Great sense of community, and as a result, the students, teachers and parents are very supportive of each other; they work together to help every student reach his/her potential. Very supportive during personal crises. Art and music programs are still relatively new, but growing. Worth every penny.

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.
