We are extremely disappointed with this school. My child, who loves learning and has always had top grades, started hating school. Turned out she was scared of getting little things wrong out of fear she would get negative points. My daughter was so stressed out and miserable there that I did not know

The principal told my husband I was inappropriate for not giving them enough notice when I pulled my daighter out of there! Unbelievable. My daughter is now in a different school and happy again.

Top notch school. Children leave very prepared for more rigerous academic endeavors after graduation. Those going to the Huntington School District often find themselves in honors/AP classes. The 1 star ratings are puzzling, but are not in a way. There is "secular animosity" towards St.Patrick's.
... Read more I as a Catholic parent have been in the presence of people bad mouthing the school because of a perceived elitest perception by those speaking poorly about the school. It is a private school, and the public school has shortcomings. Parents who have children in the public school system just have animosity at St. Pat's in my opinion. For the parent who said there are 31 kids in a class in St. Pat's, open you eyes. There are the same amount in the public school, if not more. Read less

Great community spirit in the school. Testing has placed St. Patrick's on par with Cold Spring Harbor and above HUFSD .

The school is good depending on how you look at it. If you want your child to learn about religion and get deeper in their faith then you will be disappointed. If you want just straight education then you may too be disappointed.

Both of my children have been attending St. Patrick s since they were 2 years old. From day one we fell in love with the level of education as well as the faculty and sense of community. There is a strong communication line between teachers and parents. The parents are extremely involved and there

The school offers an advanced curriculum though state testing preparation, as with all schools, clearly detracts from true classroom time. St. Patrick's provides students with substantial additional programs that truly serve to enhance the students learning opportunities. The teachers also set themselves

By the way I'd like to respond to the comment that St. Pat's does not provide academic intervention to their students--completely untrue. My daughter was provided one on one math help without me even asking for this, I was thrilled, the school had recommended this approach based on her standardized

As far as not providing a higher level experience for advanced children, that is another comment that is completely untrue, there are several children in each class who participate in the "Gifted Program-SEARCH" which is provided by the school district. Also there are children who receive financial assistance and honestly the tuition o approx, $5K is a bargain for what your child is receiving. It sounds like the 1-2 star commenter's just want something to complain about. Read less

St. Patrick's School is everything a parent looks for in a private school-very strong academics, highly structured, promotes self-discipline- but it is fully parochial- Catholic values and spirituality are an integral part of the picture. We have three children who attend, and our experience has been
... Read more an excellent one. The enrollment is stable, and teacher turnover is low. With few exceptions, teacher quality is quite good. The physical plant is in mint condition, and the interior is immaculate. As to comments about test scores, the administration at St. Pat's is very forthcoming about theirs. Then look on the Times website at 4 or 5 neighboring districts' scores. You will see for yourself how St. Pat's stacks up to the rest! Also, all St. Pat's students' scores are included in their stats, regardless of whether the student has an IEP or gets academic intervention. This is not true of the statistics published by local school districts. Also, there's sports, enrichment, after school care, full day pre-K, 2 and 3 year old nursery- the kinds of bells and whistles you usually do not find in Catholic elementary schools. This school is a gem! Read less

For the people who think there are no children at St. Patricks who come from low income families or who are ESL think again. Through the Diocese there is a scholarship program that helps those with financial difficulties send their children to St. Pat's. For the parents who complain that 'all the teaching

FInally , for those who complain about first and second year teachers , what do you expect ? In every profession people have to start somewhere and like every profession people are allowed to make mistakes. St. Patricks is a wonderful school and a great place for any child to learn and meet friends. Read less
