It was adequate , considering our teacher dropped out in the beginning of the school year and we were in chaos. If it weren’t for Mrs. Rivera, i don’t know where I’d be. She deserves so much more recognition than she gets. Teacher of the year reward type recognition. She deserves the world

The school used to be run by nuns and was behind in different aspects compared to other schools; however, I believe the new principal is changing things for the better. New technology and curriculum will come and also new programs for the next few years. Communication and organization at the admin level needs to improve, but it already began to happen and hopefully it will continue to improve under the new principal's leadership. I am also surprised to see how many parents are not involved in their children's education. Many parents blame the school (and this is the case in public and private schools as well)and why I ask the parents about how many hours a day they sit with their children to do homework or if they check their children's backpack or their homework, then these parents tell me that they don't check or sit with their child to do homework; however, they complain about the schools.

Mediocre school. High number of students in each class. Teachers don't get any support.

St. Dominic Savio is a great school. Children who go to this school often get their choice of acceptance into whatever Catholic High School they please. After the change of leadership, that school and student are thriving. I graduated from there last year and have two other siblings currently attending. With the new principal, the kids are encourages to eat healthy and dedicate themselves to their studies. From experience, high schools are more than pleased with any student who comes from Savio. One of the best all-male high schools sits right next to them and all boys are encouraged to apply. SJHS, an all-girl school, is also impressed with the quality of students from Savio. All freshman honors classes currently have at least 4 Savio students.

My daughter just graduated and went on to SJHS. She had an awesome experience here as part of the SDS Family. My 2 sons now attend and we have a new principal who is addressing previous issues. So it's only getting better! Solid teaching staff.
