This is and has been a good school, with great Christian Value and a quality education. There is nothing in comparison available in this area.

I agree with the parent that wrote if you want your child to have a good education to move on. This is not the school that will do it. The same thing happened with my daughter while enrolling her into antoher catholic shcool, we were told that she's below her grade level. They almost didn't accept her because of it. In my Opinion the staff at the school is not very professional either. This school was a waste of my hard earned money, and I DO NOT recommend them if you actually care about your child's education.

We had a wonderful experience with the 7th grade. I found the work very challenging, and my child always had ample homework

This school was not academically challenging during our 7th grade experience. The building could be kept much better. The computers were old. In my opinion you could have a better experience at a public school for free.

If you want a good education for your child, move on. My daughter has attended this school for 2 yrs. She is on honor roll.When I had her tested at a new school because of administrative problems with the school, I was informed that she is comprehending below her grade level. Shouldn't the reading specialist at this school have known this?

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 student 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.
