I am a mother of 5 amazing children who have all attended Santa Clara of Assisi Catholic School since they were in Pre K-3. The school has a very good teaching curriculum and amazing teachers who love their students. This school has an amazing principle Mrs. Matous who works endless hours to bring programs and resources to ensure her students have the best!!! I love the community atmosphere at this school new or returning families everyone is treated like family. I would highly recommend this school to any parent considering a Catholic private school education! Go Knight!!!

I am only a former student but I chose to send my daughter here. I love that I know everyone and how inviting everyone is. I love how students learn charity and respect which I think today's children lack. Sure the fundraising is not fun but honestly that's what you get when you sign them up all private schools fundraise. But if ever there is a problem I know I can send an email to the principal and get a response within the hr.

I would not recommend this school. We had our son since kinder garden and the teachers were nice but We believed our son was learning what he had to learn to pass grades, He didn't. Not until 2nd grade is when the teacher says that ALL the 12 kids in the 2nd grade were so behind they had to send 6 kids to 1st grade, and according to the teacher and the principal most of the others are inmmature and need medication..... REALLY? ALL OF THEM ? Since the whole class was affected, Shouldn't it be clear that the school didn't do their job ? When the principal is asked WHAT happened? She says she doesn't know, When i asked SHOULDN'T you know? her answer is Yes but I don't know. Great answer !

This a great school. go in person and do your research. Its a small school. I will tell you one thing this school does not tolarate bulling or any bad behavior. Every private school you have to do hours or opt out its explained to you when you are conserding signing your kids at this school. every private school wants parents to be involved with the children at school. If the teachers see that your child needs help in any class/home work they will have tutoring for the child after lunch or after school. The principal is awesome.

I would definatly NOT reccomend this school. It seems to me the main focus is not on education but fund raisers and mandatory volunteer work for parents of course you can opt out and choose not to but then you are charged for every hour not worked per sporting event. The cost of tuiton is not worth it. I did not see any of the technology programs the school advertises.The math program is a joke I have two children enrolled and it seems they are falling further behind than when in public. The math teacher will assighn homework and assumes that if you were there last year you would already know it. It is not taken into consideration if you are new and have not had that level of math. In all my worst mistake was not doing my proper research on this school. I was so desperate to remove them from public and I made a rash decision unfortunatly my children are now paying for my mistake. So this is just a short list of things wrong with this school I have many more but in short I would not reccomend this school.

I would not recommend this school at all!! The principal makes the worse decisions as far as hiring staff. It does not have excellent teachers (math specially), no strong principal/ school deadership and there is NO challenging academic programs.

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.
