I wanted to send my son here but there are too many additional fees beyond the tuition. The open house was great and the teachers were friendly and knowledgable. Bur I was told by another parent that there is a high faculty turnover rate. He said some teachers left before the end of the school year. This is a red flag to me. I want my child to be in a stable school.
Sounds the students on the AD teams wants extra credit. Good job kids! Keep studying.
Their 8th grade graduation was a superb way of honoring our children. The graduates seemed to have been really prepared and the high schools the students are going to are fantastic! High calibre, intellectual kids from the Grade School of HF!!! The student of the year speech was very respectful of all his teachers. "Once a bulldog...will always be a bulldog!" Marvelous ending.

What I love about HFGS Decathlon is growing closer to my fellow decathletes and alternates. Spending every afternoon studying with the team had created such a strong bond between all of us. Also, we've had an incredible amount of support from our outstanding principal, our coaches who help us every day, the parents, and our priests who have continuously blessed us.
Being in the Holy Family Gade School has been an enjoyable experience. You improve academically and enjoy the decathlon with the Alternates and Decathletes around you. Many have supported us and prayed for us, and we thank you for it.
This is my second year in the Academic Junior High Decathlon Team. I would like to acknowledge my decathlete, Marylu Eapen. She has give all her effect through this academic journey. Also, our AJHD coach, Ms. Ruta, our principal, Ms. Suelto, and the parents have supported us in these past few months.
Being a part of the decathlon team at Holy Family Grade School was an amazing experience. This is my second year being a decathlete at Holy Family and I have received 3rd place twice. My principal, coaches, teachers, priests, teammates, and alternate have been so supportive and really prepared me for the competition. Overall, decathlon is a wonderful chance to showcase our abilities and come together as a school.
This is my first year here at Holy Family and it's been very fun so far. I am the Math Decathlete for the school and I would like to thank my alternate Matthew, teachers, coaches, and priests for their support. A Special thanks to our coach who stayed long hours quizzing helping us win 1st place in super quiz and 6th place overall.
When I got into the Academic Decathlon at Holy Family, I had the opportunity to showcase my abilities. In doing so, we got 1st in Super Quiz and 6th overall out of 112 schools. This experience was not like any other and we couldn't do it without the support of our coach, Mrs. Ofelia Ruta, our priests, and last but not the least, our principal, Ms. Fidela Suelto.
Competing with my fellow decathletes at the Academic Junior High Decathlon was an amazing experience. Our parents, our teachers, our principal, Miss Suelto, our priests, and our coach, Ms. Ruta, supported us from the very beginning all the way to the competition. The hard work paid off and we placed 1st in Super Quiz, 2nd in Religion, 3rd in Fine Arts, and 6th overall.
I have had the experience of being in two different private schools. Holy Family is different in the sense that you can clearly see and feel where all the fundraising goes, and there is transparency. True there are fund raisings, and projects that involves a lot of money, but these are for the children. To have a conjucive environment for studying and to offer the best faculty and support staff, it involves investing some monetary amount. But these investments yields in the form of what the children learn, and what they are able to achieve. I love HFGS and so does my daughter, everyone is given a chance to explore their strength, given opportunities to grow, not just a select few. In here, rest assured your children will be able to engage in things they love and build long lasting friendships. For those that have negative comments, i offer them these insights, sometimes we need to ask our children if they love the school or not. I know we as parents are the one paying, but, if the children does not enjoy their environment, they will not also enjoy learning. HFGS offers a wonderful learning environment and the kids know this.
This is an absolutely the topnotch school in Glendale! Go visit and have a tour of the school. They have exciting curricular programs. People are always accommodating and the teachers are carefully selected. The adults take care of the children and the children are disciplined, safe, and are highly motivated to succeed.
This school has fantastic teachers that care for the students and helps them it is needed.
