My children started at Saint Margaret's in Kindergarten and are now in the Middle School. We intended to only stay for Kindergarten but fell in love with the Staff, the Principal and the caring environment. School starts for us this week and the other day my oldest who is entering 8th grade turned to me and said "Mom I really am excited to go back to school. It's going to be a great year." - as a parent there is no better feeling than knowing that your child enjoys school and learning. The children are challenged to always do their best but beyond that they are taught strong social values and respect for all. Extracurricular activities like music, drama, cross country, to name a few, contribute to creating well rounded and confident individuals. The teachers truly care about each student and want them to excel. Without question, the academic program has given my children a solid foundation and, as we start to look at high schools, I'm confident they have the grades and skills to be accepted and succeed at the school of their choice. We are so glad we found St. Margaret's and have been able to experience all that it has to offer for the past 8 years.

I have 2 children at this school and have had my oldest here for 6 years. What a wonderful environment for your children to grow. There are many schools with newer buildings, including public, but the beauty of this school are the intangibles. Respect, hard work and values are all taught in a loving, caring environment which helps in forming the next generation.

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.
