I am a public school teacher and parent to two St. Paul Cathedral School students. We have been incredibly happy with the education, nurturing, and community that this school has to offer. The teaching staff is experienced and provides a rigorous academic experience for all children, regardless of their level of achievement. If you are looking for a school that encourages traditional educational programs, this school is for your student.

My kids are receiving a wonderful education at St. Pauls. The teachers are all excellent, and the new principal is enthusiastic and caring and a great role model for the students. We are especially impressed with the empathy of the students - they really do take care of each other.

I think this is the finest school in the Yakima Valley. After moving her from a larger city I have been so deeply impressed by the education, guidance and love my children have recieved while at St Paul's. I highly recomend this school to anyone looking at private or public education in the Yakima valley. It is well worth it!

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.
