We love St. David - the entire community is so caring - the school is no exception. We feel our son is getting an exceptional education and he also gets the moral guidance he needs, which is so important! The focus on academics as well as on helping and serving others in order to do God's will provide the lessons that kids need today.

This is a great faith based school with high educational standards and a close knit family feel.

I have two children attending St Davids and am very pleased. I have friends whose children attend Upper Moreland Primary/Middle schools and I feel that St Davids is academically more challenging. Children can be cruel anywhere you go but the kids seem to be more accepting at St Davids. They are taught to respect one another. I love that you can call the secretary and she know's what activity your child has that afternoon. Very Personable! The Teachers and Principal truly care about each child!

I have two children attending St. David. I am thrilled with the school and all of it's programs. I think that Sister Angela is doing a wonderful job in bringing all that she can to the school to offer to the students. I agree that the children of St. David's are taught first hand how to be more accepting of all types of children and prove that hands on with the OLC program! I would not send my child anywhere else!

I attended David's from kindergarden to 8th grade and I really loved it. I made such good friends there. I graduated in 2003 and am currently a music major in college. If it weren't for that school I don't know what I would be doing with my life. The program there was asolutely fantastic and helped me so much in finding what I love to do.

I did not encounter anything of which you are referring to, bullying and low academics. All four of our children received highschool/college scholarships but the best point of St. David's is its loving, caring teachers and nurturing environment. St. David's is a wonderful school and I would highly recommend it to anyone.- Meg P

Academically this school was average. However St. David provided little in terms a perparing students for high school situations considering it's lack of extracurricular activities (excluding the music department which was great). Additionally safety was lacking. When I was a student I was often bullied by others and little was done stop it or prevent it. I strongly recommend over-looking St. David's when picking schools for your child. It will save them much trouble in the long run. I deeply regret attending this school.

A truly wonderful parochial school with a renowned music program. Focusing on the spiritual, emotional and of course, educational needs of the student. Parents are very involved as are teachers! Small class sizes.

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.

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.
