  • Reviewed by Former Student on November 02, 2010
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Visitation has very good academics. The children are prepped for state tests and high school entry exams near perfectly. The principal, Sr. Rosemarie, really knows how to run a school. By the end of a student's first year, she will definitely know them by name. The only negatives are that it does not have a proper gym or cafeteria, and there are some problems with some of the special subjects. Overall, Visi is a very good school, and you should definitely send your child there if you live nearby.
