St. Patrick School has an amazing staff that is always incredibly helpful and has the best interests of children at their center. The students go on to the high school well-prepared and academically ahead of their public school friends.

I went to St. Pats for most of my elementary years. I found it to be horrible experience. Some of the teachers were great dont get me wrong and really helped me along the way but others were horrible and made me feel like I was less then dirt. To this day they are still teaching there and I wonder why. My parents often said though high school why they sent me there. The 8 th grade teacher at the time told me I would never go to college. I am now a junior in college and have been on honor roll all 3 years. Don't get me wrong not all of the teachers are like that they have wonderful kindergarten thur 2 grade but after that its not worth your time. Both me and my boyfriend went there and will never send out children there after the horrible experiences we had there

This school has provided a great learning experience for my daughters. The academic education provided is excellent and the values instilled in the students makes this school exceptional. The "school family" we are a part of has meant a lot to myself as well as my children.

I am so impressed with this school & it's staff!! They work with each student as an individual & encourage students to excel. I have 3 children that attend this school and all have had their own "issues" that are handled with sensitivity & creativity. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this school to anyone in the Sparta area!! The academics are very strong & the students who go on to the local High School seem to consistently be in the top of their classes at Graduation.

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.
