I am curently a 7th grader at Seven Sorrows and this is an amazing school full of school spirit and great education. All of the teachers work with you if you do not understand the information. I love Seven Sorrows because all of my friends are here and would recommend this school to anyone!

High turnover of teachers. They can't seem to keep them here. Many internal problems with administration. 3 principals in one school year!

I am a 2007 graduate and couldn't have received a better education. Not to mention the family atmosphere and small classes that greatly add to character and growth. I love SSBVM!

Quality of education is good, some teachers better than others. Son is now in 2nd grade and doing better in school because of the above. Music, art, gym and computer class are available, something that alot of public schools are starting to phase out is recess is still happening here. There will be a new school built within the next three years.

I have 2 children attending Seven Sorrows BVM School in Middletown PA, I would not send them anywhere else but Seven Sorrows, the teachers, the principal and all the staff are the greatest, the class sizes are small enough that the students get enough teacher student time, the cirriculum is based on religion as the foundation, and the education I feel is the best thing I could do for my kids, they have every type of sport or activity that any public school has to offer, they offer so much more than I ever imagined to our kids, parental involvement is greatly appreciated, the office staff is always there when needed, I just cannot say enough about the wonderful things I have seen, and have been a part of at seven sorrows. Great 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.
