Best private school for 3K-8th grade. Your children will leave academically prepared, spiritually grounded and morally unique. I find it curious that there is only one bad review here. I think some good old-fashioned teaching of respect for your teachers, peers and parents is sorely lacking in today's schools. These kids go on to be top of their classes, leaders and captains of their sports teams and great examples in their churches. Maybe the problem was with that parent's child, not the setting of the school. Sorry their had a bad experience, I love these school tremendously!

This school is wonderful. After graduating from the 8th grade my children went on to excel in high school. The teachers in grades 5-8 had prepared them so well. They were wonderful caring people who truly cared about each child. I would recommend this school to anyone who loves their children.

St. Anthony Catholic School is a remarkable school. My children attended from 4k thru 8th grade. The teachers at each grade level were fantastic! My children were academically challenged each and every year, developed compassion and understanding for others, and grew in self concept and independence. Not only were they well prepared academically, socially, and spiritually, but they had the confidence to make the right decisions all young people must face as they enter high school. In short, a St. Anthony Catholic School education was the best gift we gave our children. If you want your child to be nurtured in a caring and stimulating environment, St. Anthony is the only choice!

f you are looking for 1970s style teaching (sitting, no talking, no collaborating, lecture style, passive engagement) then this is the place for your child in grades 5th through 8th! My child had a wonderful experience Pre-K through grade 4. After that, I have nothing positive to say. I find it interesting that from 5th - 8th grades, the number of students leaving and going to public, charter, online or other private schools increases substantially. The one common denominator ..the teachers of those grade levels. I travel internationally as a keynote speaker and educational consultant with over 28 years of teaching and training experience and train superintendents, principals, school boards, and teachers and cannot believe that I allow my own child to experience all the things I "coach" school districts to NOT do in their own school systems. If this school is still around in three years, I will be completely shocked. The staff in that building need a wake up call. They need to go teach in a "real" learning environment for one day and then I think they will beg for professional development that will help them meet the needs of today's learners, not the learners of 1975!

We love our school! We have moved several times for my husband's career and my kids say this is their favorite school. The academics are challenging without being overwhelming. They offer sports, plays, music, art, etc. Saint Anthony families are so welcoming too. It has been a great fit.

My daughter is in kindergarten and getting ready for first Grade. Shas been at St. Anthony School for 2 years and absolutely loves it. She has learned so much in the past 2 years, I am so impressed with the faculty and the education my child is receiving at St Anthony's. The basic skills she is receivng for her future education is wonderful, and it is putting her on the road to sucess. I hope to keep her enrolled at St. Anthony School until 8th grade.

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.
