Nazareth Academy Grade School is the best school. The teachers really, truly care about you and you feel like this is your 2nd family. They have Spanish, art, computers and music each week. However, they are not equiped to handle disabilities such as ADHD. 80% of the parents get involved with fundraisers and help out. Their mission statement is Faith in Action Rooted in Catholic Values and they really do teach with love. They have zero tolerance for bullies.

This school is very disappointing. The teachers aren't good and either is their after school activities. They have no gym, the school is very old and dirty and it's mostly a girl school.

Great 'family oriented' school. Its great to really know the other students and parents. Many functions are held to encourage active participation in our children's growth. I wouldn't have my children go anywhere else. I feel very lucky to have Nazareth nearby! Nazareth is truely 'family oriented' and troublemakers who would otherwise interrupt your child's education are shown the front door. I love this school!

Nazareth Academy Grade School is not a very good school. Although their academics may be good, the atmosphere is not. The faculty is not as kind or caring as a parent would hope for them to be. Also, the students and their families are not kind in any way, either.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
