18 Parent Reviews for St. Leo The Great School

This is a great school. Yes it is tough and the dress code is strict but would you rather have your kids get a good education and associate with other good families or have them looking like punks and behaving like criminals? Take a look around Fairfax high and the choice is obvious. St Leo is well worth ...  Read more

The teachers were nice and tried, but first graders should not be expected to do an hour of homework a night. Multiple studies have proven no benefit to homework at that age and yet, St. Leo's piles it on. Apparently in second and third it can be 2-3 hours a night. I pulled my daughter before we experienced ...  Read more

The middle school teachers at this school are extremely biased, they favor The girls over boys, the front office staff are just blatantly rude when they found out I was transferring out of this school, the vice principal kept questioning us about why we were transferring. The students there were great, ...  Read more

Great school, excellent Christian formation, great education, friendly and knowledgeable faculty. We have our two daughters at Saint Leo since Pre-School. We have seen many children of our friends and even though we are aware that most of the Christian foundation is provided at home, we are also aware ...  Read more

Last year was my last year at St. Leo's. To start, the administration is terrible. The principal doesn't even do their job so they leave it to the vice principal to do everything. They care more about the dress code than student actually achieving good grades. Also, they care more about what the middle ...  Read more

I have had two children in St Leos if they had not changed principals my youngest would not be there. With a change in the church and the new staff at the school it is better. But I agree that it is too much run like a public school for my taste. I don't want PC I want a strong base with a Christian ...  Read more

I was shocked to read the review from the parent who said that religion was not a priority or incorporated. We have had the absolute opposite experience. The priests are engaged with the children, my children have weekly assignments in religion - between writing reports on saints to memorizing prayers ...  Read more

This is a good but not a great school. My children attended the local public school for two years prior and had better academic programs there. We transferred to this school due to the expectation that religion would be incorporated into the curriculum, but that has been spotty at best. Religion is ...  Read more
