This school is great! The teachers and the principal care about the students. The academics are outstanding. I get the impression that all my children learn more here than they learned in the public schools that they attended before. They actually have homework. By that I mean real homework, that makes sense to us as parents and no busy work. Class sizes varies from 7 to 28 students per class. The discipline among the students is good. Most of the students are extremely polite. I personally love the uniforms. This makes my life as a parent much easier. The school is faith based but students do not have to be Catholics. Students and teachers pray several times during the day and attend Mass once a week at school.

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.
