I love St. Lukes! I am graduating this year and I feel very prepared. The small classes make for better learning environments. There is a no bully policy and it seems to work very well. I do believe that SLS is a great school and I hope I can even send my own kids there. Not to mention that our Terra Nova Testing scores were outstanding! SLS is definietly a 5 star school!

Knowing children and teachers in the area public schools, I see that my children in St Luke's are at least a year behind the public school students. Although the environment is close-knit and caring, the administrators and teachers are way behind in staff development and it shows in thier teaching. My children will be transferring out...

This school has wonderful teachers who really care, and is a fabulous academic environment. At St. Luke's they nurture children in the Catholic faith.

I attended SLS from kindergarden through 8th grade and it was by far the worst experience of my life. It has caused me much problem in life and has put me in a place where I don't deserve to be, depressed. The students bully relentlessly and I am ashamed to have to say that I attended this school.

I graduated from st. luke's as all my sister's did. this is a wonderful school. this is the best elementary school to send your children to, not only is the bar set extremely high on education but they have the best educators. the devoted religious experience and spiritual guidance the children receive is not received any where else. my time at st. luke's was my home away from home, the education I received I still carry to this day.

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.
