26 Parent Reviews for St. Ignatius Loyola School

Lord help us! This school has the potential to be outstanding but the principal is not a leader and doesn't possess even modest skills that should be essential to this position. I could describe her as defensive, abrasive, ignorant and spiteful. She is definitely resting on previous principals' laurels ...  Read more

Do not send your child here ...on the very surface it looks good but the education is sub-par, children are stiffed and the administration from the top down wants absolutely no input or involvement from parents. Not to get into the principal who is one of the most unenlightened 'educators' anyone could ...  Read more

Strength: Religion. The other three Rs are hit or miss, with the misses too frequent. The principal has zero leadership skill; no public speaking capacity; and a default answer of "no" to good ideas.

Although my sons are now adults, I look back at the education they received at SIL very fondly. They received a stellar education in the basics of Language Arts and the basic foundation of Math skills. This is going back quite far in the days of Sr. Audrey as principal and Mrs. Wescott as the wonderful ...  Read more

I am a recent alumni and I hve nothing to say but that it was the best school experience I've had in my life, though I may be biased after having gone to school there since kindergarten. Saint Ignatius has prepared me extremely well for high school at Marymount, which in itself, is very difficult to ...  Read more

I am an alumni. Excellent school, loved the memories, teachers were amazing, high school is easy because of Saint Ignatius. The only prob was their rules were funny. They would get upset about the weirdest things. Sometimes we would have fun and play with each other and mess around with each other, ...  Read more

Fabulous school, because of affiliations, a little less expensive than other private schools in this neighborhood but better academics so great value too!
