Fake smiles and false honor and loads of Catholic mass requirements. Fear of admin causes teachers to cave in to powerful parents. Students are accepted if they can pay.

SAA excels at teaching values and at fostering lifelong friendships. I am also very greatful for how well prepared I was for college, particularly in English.

I graduated from St. Agnes, and I know I teach pre k at St. Agnes and St. Dominic. As a student, I felt like I truly held an identity, and wasn't just a number. Academically, I was more than prepared for college, yet I was also prepared emotionally and spiritually, as well. I feel that diversity that surrounded me, helped shape my thoughts and beliefs that I still have today. As a teacher at the school, SAA-SDS still teaches me. Whenever I feel lost, there is someone who is more than happy to guide and support me. Through both the families that attend the school, and the SAA-SDS family, I feel that I am able to give back the same quality academic and religious education that I was so blessed to receive as a student.

we don't have a library, we have a 'cybrary.' It is connected to the technology world unlike any school I have seen. We have a distance Learning center where a class can talk and intersct with some one studying polar bears at the north pole. amazing!

This is a wonderful school. Caring, strict, advanced technology. Many non-Catholic students go here. A longstanding strong education in Memphis.

It is more than I could have asked for. The teachers and administrators are amazing! The technology is above any school in the surrounding area (in my opinion the nation), which is supported by the Apple Distinguished award we received this past year. It is a school with strong tradition, which can be seen everyday. The school also does a great job making sure to incorporate God in our lives everyday. I would recommend this school to anyone who is considering sending their daughter or son to a private school in Memphis. The education and love they will receive here is above the rest. Through the leadership of our great President, Mrs. Barbara Daush, the school has accomplished great things.

Pre-K - Kindergarten have so far been exceptional. The teachers have been very committed to learning outcomes, including a very high emphasis on reading and writing. A wide range of activities were employed for our daughter including many hands on activities to allow her to learn at her own pace. A very effective positive reward system is used for discipline. The social atmosphere of the school is also very nice. She has bonded with most of her classmates in very positive manner nad formed close friendships with several as well. We have found that most of the parents are very nice and very involved with their child's education. Extracurricular activities are abundant and a wide range of learning environments are offered including music, foreign language, and PE.

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.
