My husband and I are the proud parents of three St. Bernadette School students. My children started SBS when they were 2 years of age, in the wonderful Mothers Morning Out Program, and continued on through the outstanding Preschool and Kindergarten programs. They are currently in gradeschool, where they are receiving a very high-quality education. The school offers a wide variety of extra programs to meet the needs of young artists, scientists, and future leaders of our community. There are also many opportunities for my children to participate in service projects to benefit our local community. Under the leadership of our new Principal, this school just continues to get better and better. She leads a dedicated faculty who each day show a genuine love of teaching and of our children. In addition to all of this, SBS is a wonderful community of families who have made us feel so connected to the area in which we live. I would recommend St. Bernadette School to anyone who is looking for a quality Catholic education for their children.

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 teacher 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.

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 »
