This is a wonderful school that teaches the children not only to be great students, but to be good moral people who are very learned in their faith. I hope someday to move close enough to send my children back to St. Monica School. I know of no better place to send my children. We miss it so very much.

The caring and excellent education that is received. Because it is a private Catholic School there is the freedom to bring God into all the students do. When they graduate they are far above the public scools in many subjects.

this school has done so much for my child. When public schools in this area had my child fearing for his/her life, i brough him/her to St. Monica's. Where the Teachers,Principal, and students were all welcoming and supportive to him/her.

I went to Saint Monicas school for seven years and I loved it! I mostly enjoyed 5th grade camp with Mrs.Row, being envolved in plays, and simply just going there.I have a lot of friends who still go to the school, and they are always raving about it.In this school, parents are a big part of the school's sucess. The teachers are great with the kids, and make the kids interested in their studies. I would highly recogmend this school to anyone who wants their childern enrolled in a great family environment where they can share freindships and faith!

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.
