St. Patrick School is now led my Father Christopher Redcay and Patricia O'Donnell. With these 2 strong leaders, the school is thriving! You will not find a stronger community of parents and teachers. The curriculum is diverse and challenging while still maintaining the Catholic ideals of service and faith. I have 3 children at St. Pat's and can not recommend this school enough.

St. Pat's has new leadership in place and you won't find another school with as much energy, faith and service in place...very forward-thinking and an amazing place for students to grow in their faith....spanish and technology, plus faith formation and a virtue program make this school amazing...the principal and pastor have vision and a faith-driven model of leadership.

Great school....Excellent teachers....Positive parent involvement...spectacular extracurricular activities including sports....A little lacking on the Principal side (leadership cynical and lacking)

I have three children at St. Patrick's. All three started kindergarten there. We have been particulary impressed with how well they have learned academically. But more than that, the community of committed teachers and positively involved parents is really amazing. I wish I could have gone to a school like this when I was a kid.

St. Pat's a great school, academically. The curriculum is challenging and suitable for the children. I love quite a few things about the school. However I must admit it's not always a warm atmosphere (at least that's the way I feel when I visit the school as a parent). I believe the interaction with teachers and student are ok. Another observation: Favouritism. (Need I say more?)

Top Notch! Excellent faculty, teacher to student ratio and academic materials. Also excellent family participation in events.

Quality of teachers and academic programs are second to none. A warmth permeates this place like no other school I have dealt with over the years. There is so much to do for the kids outside of the day to day activities and classes. Sports for girls and boys are well organized and always going on after school and the weekends all year. Music shows, talent shows, plays etc. are available to children to be part of a large team oriented effort. Parental involvement in all parts of the school is incredible. Parents are a huge part of St. Pat's ongoing success. So much of the warmth and spiritualty of the school comes from parental involvement. This is a school that not only provides your child with the best education but this is the place that instills confidence for your child's future. It is a can't miss! Good Luck!

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.
