We were very dissatisfied with this school. The academics are subpar. It is way overpriced and they only care about your money. Most public schools are just as good if not a lot better.

Maybe at one point this was a good school, but I can only say it is a terrible school now. If I had it to do over I would never have sent my daughter there. There criticulum may be higher than a public school, but they do have equipped teachers to teach it. If you contact a teacher...forget it they will not call you back. No comuncatio at all with students. I really believe they could care less if the kids fail or pass. someone needs to give the diocese a wake up call before catholic schools are a thing of the past....

In our experience, there is no communication between faculty and parents.Phone calls are, as a rule, never returned. The teaching staff seems marginal at best.

My 4th child is currently attending NC. This school gives students a great education, excellent sports teams and most importantly spiritual development. All of my children who graduated went on to attend colleges that would be considered among the nations top tier ( two recieved scholarships. I have a very high regard for this school.

Highest quality high school education in the pittsburgh area. My family has sent 3 generations to NC and the tradition only gets stronger with time.

Many promises were made during the enrollment process that were not honored upon enrolling. There seems to be a lack of communication between the administration, faculty and parents.

This school has been an excellent fit for our family. The enrollment has been shrinking since 1985. There is a strong possiblility that the school will be moving closer to the growing population base in the North Hills within the next 5-7 years. Teachers truly care about the kids and the extra tuition costs have been worth every penny.

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.
