Great School. We are always learning something new, and always being treated with respect. Kids are life-long friends and are there for one another. Incredible parent-involvement, parents are always there and willing to help. Teachers really care about the students, and enjoy seeing them succeed. Overall St. Philomena is a great school that teaches all its students to learn, make friends, follow God, and have fun while doing so.

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.
