IC School is the perfect place for your children to grow, surrounded by carrying and nurturing teachers and staff. A challenging and quality education at IC is well worth the money. My child has blossomed since she began school there, and I WILL be sending my youngest there, as well!
The school has received a new priest! Who both my son and I love... He really interacts with the school. My son has even recently informed me that all grade are now involved in a anti-bullying class. The principal and teachers are amazing. I've had 3 children go though I.C. and move on to the Mount, Pulaski Academy and the University of Louisville and they say that I.C. educationally, physically, and mentally prepare them for high school and college!
I'm appalled when people criticize a priest. However we have Another great priest at IC. The teachers are awesome!! The principal is extraordinary!! The whole staff there is wonderful!-- Like one big family all working together for the greater good of our children. Christ-centered environment. We ve been very pleased. As many other people to be sending our children to a Great school like IC
Most of the teachers at the school are very good. However, enrollment continues to dwindle because of the priest. This is because he ignores and/or allows serious bullying issues, playing favorites and ignoring some kids behavior because he is afraid of some parents. He also insists on using incense during Friday school Mass, which chokes and nauseates the kindergarteners who sit next to the altar. The priest also chokes and coughs, causing many parishioners to comment that he looks like Barney Fife smoking his first cigar. Even though the teachers are very good, I would not recommend this school until the priest is transferred; which hopefully is soon.
I love IC! I have been going here since I was in Kindergarten and have known some of these teachers my whole life. I am now graduating and will miss this school very much. This year we have the principal as our math teacher and it is great I have learned so much and truly understand it and my grades are showing it!
I am very disappointed in this school. Cliques are terrible, especially in the upper grades. There are several good teachers in the lower grades but I certainly wouldn't send a child to junior high here. A lot of complaints have been made against the priest too.
