My daughter is in her second year at St. Dorothy. We could't be happier. She loves it, is making great friends and learning faster than I imagined.

Our child currently attends St. Dots after her being there for 6 years we are completely unsatisfied. Teachers have been well below average. The principal is out of touch. Bullying is VERY prevalent. We thought the school would have gotten better but it has only gotten worse. It was a terrible mistake sending our child there.

Horrible school!!!! I would never ever enroll my child in this school again!! we had a very bad experience with 4th grade teacher. students are very unfriendly, don't welcome new students openly. Principal is doing horrible job! this school is using car parking space as playground. Whole structure needs to be changed!!!

The principal (Mrs. Sheehan) is awesome! She is very involved and runs the school well. The teachers are pretty good too. The school is very good at communicating with parents by way of memos, email, school newsletter, etc. The curriculum is very challenging. It is a great education for a very reasonable tuition.

An excellent neighborhood Catholic school. Curriculum is tough--Latin included for upper grades--but students are also educated in how to be good, kind people. The first time I visited the school, several children held the door open for me. I was stunned by their good manners.
