Academically fine; activities fine. Not as traditional as I would expect out of a Catholic school.

Poorly informed and/or trained personnel in dealing w/ various student's learning styles/needs. School implements a politically-driven philosophy.

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.
