We 100% love St. Catherine's! They have been a great warm environment for our family. I love how they have embraced technology. Our son thinks the smart boards are the best thing ever! We highly recommend this school. The home school association does tons of fun actives to help raise money for the school. Thank you everyone for doing a great job, it is well appreciated!

Excellent academics. Especially impressed with the wonderful technology program and the way computers are holistically integrated into every subject at every grade level. There is a wonderful sense of community at St. Catherine's the children are taught and embrace a culture of respect and compassion for one another. The teachers and administration are very approachable and interactive with parents. The class size is small. There is also a great music program compared to other schools both private and public in the area. I have two children in the school, 5th and 7th grade.

I believe that the quality of the academics at St. Catherine's is unbelieveably good. They have a lot of music, art, sports and other activities to choose from such as chime choir, volleyball and music lessons. The parents are also involved in almost anything! They are always invited to help in anything they can.

My daughter is currently in 6th grade at St. Catherine's of Siena and has attended since Kindergarten. We have been extremely happy with the education she is receiving and the strong sense of community within the school environment. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone.

I am the mother of five children. My oldest three are graduates of SCS. I currently have a child in 6th Grade and one in First at SCS. The teachers are top notch and nurturing. I feel the best test of the quality of the school is how well the children do once they have graduated. My children and their peers from SCS have all done very well after leaving SCS. My children have been able to test out of First year Algebra in high school and have placed in the upper tracks of the schools they have gone onto. I would highly recommend SCS for their academics, and strong sense of community.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
