This school is not what it used to be. This upcoming school year, tuition has been raised for fewer services. Most teachers aides have been laid off thus raising the student to teach ratio. School has no administrative direction. I would not recommend this school.
Best school in the area, all things considered. Each year I search Glendale for a school that can beat Incarnation in academic achievement, quality of faculty/staff, safety, parent involvement, and extra curricular opportunities (in that order). Each year, Incarnation Parish School wins.
This school has way too many students in each classrooms with very little room to move. The recent school wide meeting with parents has hinted that next school there will be even more students in each classroom - as many as 40, so BEWARE!! You have been warned if you are considering enrolling your child at this school.
Great school with positive family/community participation. We researched a lot of other local schools, and selected Incarnation. It was certainly the best decision we could of made! Our son has been attending Incarnation Elementary since preschool. Its a wonderful program. He will be entering the first grade in the Fall 2013. In March, while still in Kinder, he began reading and writing sentences on his own. We are so thrilled with his progress and excited about his future. The preschool and Kinder teachers are EXCELLENT!! We are VERY pleased, and lucky, to have our child attending Incarnation.
Incarnation is a caring and welcoming environment for education. The staff believes in the importance of every child's success! My child continues to strive and looks forward to going to school each day. A happy child and a great education...what more could a parent want?!
This school has demonstrated a nice ability to transisiton and grow this year. The new Principal is working hard and has a happy staff and student body. They are transitioning to the common core standards and receiving lots of training and support. The Jr. High continues to be phenomenol with a new math teacher and returning language and social studies teachers who really keep the kids on their toes. Most of all it continues to be an amazing community. So happy to see it withstand the efforts of a few to cause havoc, and so very pleased with the many things my children learn everyday at Inca!
Our daughter is in her 2nd year of preschool at Incarnation. She loves all the teachers and aides and is delighted to be going 5 days instead of just 2. She's learning to sit and pay attention, she learned all her letters last year, only going twice a week and her huge interest in science and math are growing thanks to the fun way they are taught. She is a funny, confident little charmer, who is excited to learn more. I love how the teachers encourage friendships and playing together, yet let the shy ones discover friends at their own pace. Parent involvement is easy and encouraged and fun!
Thankfully we have moved our children from Incarnation and they are extremely happy with their new school. It says alot when a child comes home and tells you how much better social situations and academics are handled elsewhere. I wish this school all the best but I do think that they need a reality check.
This school is finally moving to the right direction. It removed some troublesome teachers and a principal who had not done much for this school. I hope the new principal will make things better for the next school year. It's been a chaos for the past year.
Incarnation School is one of the best Catholic schools in the area. Its academic program is excellent with dedicated homeroom teachers and specialists in areas of science, art, music, and pe. The school has a separate science lab and produces an art show every year during open house. The academic decathlon has won many awards and the sport teams are competitive. Graduates attend top high schools in the area and are prepared to succeed.
Incarnation has highly competent teachers and staff who nurture the students with challenging academics and strong Catholic values. The community of families are close-knit and support each other in times of need. The previous principal always had the children's interests at heart and the school improved much with her gentle leadership, but the new energetic principal also shows great promise. I highly recommend this school for families seeking to be a part of a strong faith-based educational community.
Incarnation school has been a wonderful experience thus far for my children. They are challanged academically and engaged in exploring art, music, and athletics in a way which encourages them to be well rounded individuals. The staff is caring, approachable and always have the best interests of the children at heart. What makes the school unique though is the truly wonderful and supportive community of families that surround the children on a daily basis. Highly recommended.
We are very happy at this school. Our kids are learning in ways that align with our values. the teachers are great! I highly recommend this school.
Newly hired math teacher leaving after only two and half months on the job. There are too many parents at this school who need attitude adjustment. Teachers and parents need to get along. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL to anyone and to encounter these parents, you will regret it.
Incarnation School has been very good to our children. The principal, teachers and staff are committed to academic excellence and Catholic values. In a period where there has been a sharp decline in Catholic school enrollment across the state, Incarnation's enrollment has remained strong. We highly recommend this school.
Incarnation school is a very strong community, kids are very happy there. Teachers are very dedicated as well as our Principal, who is leaving after 5 amazing years. We wish her success and we are positive that we will find a strong leader, to continue the great work. God bless Incarnation School.
The principal of this school has recently quit leaving it with no leadership. There is something terrible happening at this school. Absolutely NOT RECOMMENDED!!
Last year, three teachers quit and this year the math teacher quit and a teacher's aide quit in the middle of school year. I no longer trust that this school will provide a good education for my child. This is going to be his last year attending Incarnation Parish School.
My two children attended this school, and we continue to be involved with the school and school community even as my son has recently graduated from his 4-year Poly-Technic university. The staff is dedicated to their students, and preparing their students for continued success academically and socially capable in moving on to quality high schools in the area.
I am very happy with Incarnation. My 3 children have (one current) attended this school and I am extremely satisfied with the quality. The only thing I would see is a problem is the small group of parents who believe they are entitled to run the school. I can say that Incarnation has always been a great school but it is better now. Students are well prepared for the future religiously, socially and academically.
