My son has been very pleased with Savio. There is nice sense of community here and the Catholic identity is great. The Academics are good - some very strong teachers especially in Math and History. He has two teachers this year with PhDs and most of the rest are bright with Master's degrees. The music program is very good (state champion three years in a row). Students seem to love the fine arts program, and it helps strengthen the HS community. With so many award winning extracurricular activities (Robotics, Jazz Band, Math team, Yearbook and dozens more) and strong girls sports programs - the students are spread pretty thin as many do four or more activities. Dr. Wagner, the president of the school is very experienced and should be able to guide the new principal well. The weaknesses are the obvious ones - as the school continues to grow there may be the normal scheduling and overcrowding problems for the next few years, and there are fewer course options than at huge public school (they do have almost enough AP classes already though) and boys sports (except for basketball and baseball) need improvement - the school is bigger and has to compete at a much higher level.

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.
