St. Patrick School is a place where we believe learning is a lifelong commitment so we strive to teach the students what they will need to be successful in their later years, not just the years they spend with us at St. Patrick School. We believe that we build a great foundation to make the transition into high school easier for the students. It is a place where the word family does not just mean your immediate family but every family that attends the school.

St. Patrick School has created a wonderful environment that has enabled my children to excell. The school instills values that children need for everyday life. I made a wise decision to send my children to St. Patrick. A very worthwhile investment indeed.

I am a proud graduate of St. Patrick School. I was also able to fulfill my life s dream by having the privilege of being a teacher at this Catholic School. My three children are also alumni. Sending our children to this top notch school was the best investment my husband and I gave to our children. My husband and I both believe the Catholic Education received at St. Patrick School was the best beginning for our children since it provided for them an education that was academic, physical, social and spiritual. The rewards of having an education at St. Patrick School are endless.

St. Patrick School provides for students spiritually, academically, physically and socially. Children learn to their optimal level in a faith filled environment. Academics can be concentrated on because of minimal behavior problems. Children are challenged and guided to become life long learners. All the teachers and staff are dedicated and I would love to give them all huge raises! Children enjoy Art, Library, Computer, Physical Education and Music classes. Children do a lot with the community and for the community. The money I invested in this school was money well spent. All of my children were given a strong foudation in academics and Jesus Christ. I love Saint Patrick School! I am the proud parent of 10 Saint Patrick School Graduates and seven granchildren graduates so far.

My children have achieved in all aspects. I am secure knowing they are in a good environment with dedicated teachers who care. The hands-on projects, individual attention, and parent/community involvement make this school an awesome place to be a part of.

St. Patrick School has been a wonderful learning environment for my children. The teachers exhibit the utmost professional attitudes, and my children not only learn academically, but our home's moral and social values are reinforced. We are also non-catholics, but we have never felt excluded because of our religion, in this school.

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.
