I like this school, the staffs try their best to meet what the students need for education. With the small group, it gives high comfort level for students to focus on their education. With the tough economy time like this, I still put my kids education on the top priority, since St. Vincent offer very modest tuition. There's nothing wrong with local public school, but with small amount of money, the differece that your kids get for their education are worth every penny. 2 Of my children are in advance IQ levels, if I cannot afford the tuitions due to the tough economy times, I think I will try home school first before public school.

I love this school. My son is ADHD. In a public school my son would have been singled out as a bad kid. At STVS they work closely with my son & I to make sure he gets the education he needs & deserves, inspite of his ADHD. Speaking from expierence, you would not get this from a public school!

St vincent de paul school provides a top-level education for children. The school has an aim to make their students 'catholic from the inside out'. They have also won the catholic identity award, as well. My children have indeed been fortunate to have been able to attend such a school.

St.Vincent is a great school and every thing but they're too strict about rules and everything else. Let us have some breathing space teachers and principal. Even know I have learned a lot at St.vincents. I wish I could go to Public School. Just make everything better like, Church every just 1st friday in each month or get a cafeteria or better assemblys and casual polo shirts would be nice.

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.
