We have had experience with a local public school as well as with St. Ignatius, and everyone in our family is in agreement that St. Ignatius is the right choice for us. The teachers, staff and administration truly care about students, and offer a learning environment that is rigorous, but not test-oriented. Teachers take the time to know and understand their students as people, including their challenges, skills and personalities.

Incredible school with the best education for pre-k and elementary school students around, hands down. Berks County's catholic schools are among the best in the entire state and this school is one of the best. Incredibly caring and effective teachers and coaches. Can not recommend this school more! If you are considering private education for your child, this is the best elementary school in any of the surrounding counties.

We moved into the area a little weary of the schools here. We were very surprised to find this excellent school. The teachers are great and give lots of feedback on how the kids are doing. There is lots of opportunity for Parent and community involvement but most of all just lots of nice people who treat you as really good friends. I would highly recommend entering into this school.

Great school. Have been in the school for 7 years. Teachers are very involved and give feedback if parents are interested. Teachers are honest and some parents may not want to hear what they are telling them. Great community feel. Education is outstanding and the caring enviorment can't be beat. Would highly recommend this school.

Overall horrible experience at this school ! Most teachers are mediocre at best and some are just palin awful... very hit and miss. Little to no feedback on children's progress, little to no hands on learning. Rote memory with no encouragement of critical thinking. Nice facade but definitely lacking in what really counts. Ineffectual administration ! Make sure you talk to parents of children in this school before you think about signing up!

The parent involvement is very good. it is a good well rounded school that most children will do good in. They do want the children to walk the line that they fell is the best one. There is little wiggle room in disciple and behavoir.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
