We had to transfer to New York but we had our two children enrolled at St. Anthony's School. We were very satisfied with the school. The Pastor is supportive of the school and the principal demonstrates great leadership. He is always there for the parents and students. The teachers were always concerned for the progress of my children. If you want the best then I recommend you send your children. Thank you SAS and best of wishes.

Saint Anthony's is a wonderful school in every which way. The academics are superb and the religion studies are excellent. I especially love the enrichment courses: Spanish, Art, Computers and Science Lab. My only complaint is that the school only goes up to Middle School and if you want your child to continue in a good private school he/she has to go to Saint Joe's in Brownsville, TX (about 20 miles away).

Excellent school! This school was rated the best private school in the Rio Grande Valley. I just wish it had grades 9 - 12.

My daughter attends St. Anthony's Catholic School and loves it. She is in the Montessori program and has learned so much. This is a great school for the foundation of a child's education. I recommend St. Anthony's to anyone who wants to challenge your children's academic abilities.

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.
