Fantastic mixture of academics and spiritual stuff. The school offered my child a lot of things that I have never seen since we left three years ago. Two other catholic schools we have gone to have been inferior. Despite being small there were very good extracurricular activities. The great teachers and Principal made all the difference. How I miss the Bulldogs!

This is the best school ever. My 3 year old has attended from August 07 and in December 07 she knows all of her letters, writes her name, reads her colors, and knows all of her basic prayers. The environment is positive and wonderful! The faculty and staff are superb!

Our children just started atCNS in Aug. but already we have been blown away by theclassical curriculum, faith formation and top notch teachers. After one week my oldest exclaimed 'this school really makes you WANT to learn'. The classes are kept small and there is an atmosphere of respect fostered. Above all, the school is passionately Catholic they keep Christ in the center of all they do. I feel good knowing my kids bow their heads at least 3 times each day, starting with chapel each morning. My kids come home discussing the catechism and greek mythology. If you are Catholic and love your faith, this is the school for you!

Best Catholic school in the city. The classical education curriculum is first rate, and the religious instruction is thoroughly orthodox. The teachers all host after-school programs, and the school's sports program is new but dynamic. Most parents are dedicated and support the school's mission with passion. I'm not just a teacher at CNS. I'm also a parent who entrusts the education of his two children to this fine institution.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
