A wonderful warm and welcoming community. Our five children love St. Alphonsus and we adore the school! Excellent educational experience in a warm and nurturing enviroment.

St. Al's definitely holds its own in the middle school area. The total numbers are growing and Gateway to Technology is offered to all middle school students. I have experience with four other parochial schools and this school shines above the rest. Very informed staff with religious and state certifications.

Excellent preschool through 3rd grade program. Mediocre middle school instruction. Many families start their children in the younger grades then move them to Greendale public schools.

We have two children that started in K4 and now have a second grader reading at a 5th grade level and a 5 year old reading chapter books. In addition. We were most impressed with the quality of the teaching staff and strong leadership of the principal. St Al's also implemented the Gateway to Technology(GTT) program incorportating pre-engineering type classes into their middle school. Forensics is available at the 3rd grade level and Spanish & Piano is available starting in K4. Incredible school with high achieving students, faith-driven families and talented staff. We did an exhaustive comparison and couldn't be more impressed!

My two children received excellent academic educations along with strong moral training. The school requires service learning and provides a variety of extracuricular activities and sports- all staffed by volunteers. Individuals are valued. It has a family atmosphere.

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.

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 »
