This school is horrible academically, not a single teacher is certified. The teachers are so subpar; and they can barely speak English. Most of the parents pulled out their kids and the real problem continues. The principle is so full of herself that doesn't realize the teachers are the problem. She is not really what she seems to be. Students in fifth grade are testing at a third grade level if tested elsewhere. And since principle is a retiree from BISD, soon the school will be full of BISD retirees (tired and worn out), favoritism continues. I would never pay for such unworthy education.

They got rid of the old principle and the new principal at the school is the best!!!

Very shady school/favoritism. The teachers are subpar but I will say the activities the school offers are nice. I've removed my child from this school and hope they become more fair to ALL students.

This is not a really good school. There is a lot of favoritism. The teachers dont teach well and some parents are involved to much that they become the principal's favorite

I had my son there since he was 4years old, and i am very dissapointed on how the leader of the school does not listen to the parents. i had issues that were never resolved so what i had to do was take out my son from that school, he was already in 4th grade but the principal does not listen to you and i did see a lot of favoritism and that is what is unfair for the others students that are good students too. The coach especially is very rude and are not flexible with the students. I had a very bad experience in the school. The majority of the teacher my son had were good but it was the environment that was not healthy for him that i did not have any other choice than to take him out from there. I do feel that being catholic and knowing the rules of God they still do things that are unfair to this kids. I was never heard and the issue was never solved. I believe that a child's school is their second home/family and if they disrespected and mistreated then they will not want to go and their self-esteem will be shattered. I am very dissapointed.

St. Luke Catholic School is a small school community that creates a caring, loving and personal environment for their students. You feel welcomed when you enter the school and the children are happy to be in school. The curriculum is driven by a dedicated adminstrative team, faculty and staff members. Children are always challenged to reach the next level. Students receive special attention in the small classroom setting. The school also provides a true spiritual environment that sets the foundation and overall development of every child. I am very pleased with my children's progress at the school. This is a great school .

I took my son out of this school as quick as I could. His teacher was telling him things like when he plays video games he is playing with the devil, told his friend his dad was going to hell because he doesn't go to church... bad bad choices of words to tell a child.

St. Luke has always provided my children with high standards of education. They not only encourage the children to achieve high levels of education; but also high levels of moral standards. The administration, faculty, and staff demonstrate their motto of Love, Care, and Respect for one another. I feel that my children have greatly benefited from their years at St. Luke. Thank you for your support.

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.
