Nativity is a wonderful school with great teachers and a terrific principal. With a low student-to-teacher ratio and a dedicated staff, the school works very hard to involve the parents and students at all levels of the education process. Whether the child needs extra help because he or she has a learning disability or is an advanced learner, the school is there providing whatever extra help the child needs to become the best student she or he could possibly be. While the school has a religious-based education, not all students are Catholic and yet all students receive the same solid education. My only wish is the school had a high school as well, so my child could receive the same high level of education all the way through Senior Year of secondary school.

The children get an excellent education at Nativity. The teachers are very caring about the students as a whole, rather than their grades. Education is individualized where appropriate and practical. The principal, Mrs. Heise, is an amazing woman who looks after each child as if s/he were her own. Discipline is appropriate and geared towards making the children productive, polite, and caring members of society. The money coming into the school is spent on the children and their education, rather than administrative staff, so the children really DO receive the best education possible. I'm thrilled our child attends this school, as I believe they provide the very best education in this area.

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 »
