Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

They are the true meaning of Catholic school. They teach our children more than facts they are taught values and morals

I went to this school back in the 60's and sent my children there K-8. I love this school it is an amazing place for your children to gain an education. The school is mostly from the small neighborhood surrounding it. If you recently moved in and are not familiar with they type of ne3ighborhood you are living in you will not be able to understand how children treat your kids.

The students in this school were horrible to my son the five years he was there. Its funny every one talks about the public schools but they are better than the Catholic.

This school has been a terrible disappointment for us. My son has ADHD and the school is not equipped to handle children with these types of learning disabilities. I found the outside support services for my child to be inadequate and they were constantly overwhelmed by the amount of time that they had to spend with other children having similar learning problems. It is unfortunate that even after our child was diagnosed with ADHD, the school was unable to provide any additional services to help him.

St. Monica provides an excellent Catholic school education in the heart of South Philadelphia. The school community is extremely tight. The leadership, the staff and the community have high student expectations.

This school has provided a wonderful education for my children. The teachers and principals provide each student with the best education possible.
