Well, I've been to this school and it seems as the years go by I feel great to had left that school. I need change. The students were immature and childish and made me feel inadequate to other students at the competitor schools. And ugh, talk about the lack of security. Most of the doors are unlocked, but I gotta give them points, they at least locked the front door. 'The best school there is!' Psh!

I have been a student at St. Al's for 9 years from k- 8th and it is my second home. The teachers there are amazing and the students are like my brothers and sisters. And the best part about St. Al's is we are faith centered. It is a place that makes it a joy to get up and go to school everyday!

Two of my sons go to St. Al's and are learning very well from caring teachers. A great Catholic education and more importantly, great moral development in an age when morals are lacking. Highly recommended!

St. Aloysius is under new leadership, and this leader has a vision. I believe he will bring the school back to the top.

This school's motto is 'St. Aloysius - the best school there is!' I believe this motto rings true. My son has been at the school for 6 years and continues to thrive. The faculty and principal treat each student as their own. There are none of the public school worries. We have experienced no bullying, no fist fights, only high achieving students with supportive families. If you are considering a school change due to a move or another local school closing, you would never regret St. Al's as your choice.

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.
