Parkersburg Catholic schools are superior schools,both academically and socially.The staff really cares about the students and the coaches of the athletic teams are the best I've seen

Good place to work. Nice to work in a place where the Superintendent asks the teachers to 'Put more God in the classroom!' Non-political atmosphere, small classes (about 12 to 18 students), great principal who lets you teach. Kids are almost all well-behaved and respectful. Parents tend to be involved and support you with their kids. Good spirit, since the school is one of the best academically in the state - beats the big public schools that are 6 times our size.

The negative review is ridiculous, because the school generates: grades each 9 weeks, progress reports mid-quarter, newsletters monthly, and on-line information daily. Faculty call parents when necessary, see them at athletic and social events, and the community as a whole is frequently 'connected'. Only someone who paid no attention to their child's education could get no contact. I seriously doubt that the person who wrote this review has any contact with the school. I have sent two children to PCHS, and have been thoroughly satisfied with every aspect.

This school is an absolute mess. Nothing is ever sent home to parents, nothing given to children. Not a thing. Do not send your children here.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
