This school is great. This school is very advance in its academic studies. Teachers seem to be very involved with students. It's a small school and all the kids know each other. They have an after school care that has help me greatly. I am very happy with my son attending Holy Spirit School.

Holy Spirit School is a school with great teachers that want the best for their students. It is a school where high value is placed on education, discipline and safety. The small class sizes allow the staff to personally know each family.

My child is getting a great education at Holy Spirit School. The staff and teachers are great! My child is already in the 4th grade and I couldn't be any more satisfied with the education that my child is receiving at Holy Spirit School. Thanks Sister Loretto!

Holy spirit School is a wonderful School. I love all the teachers, the principal, Sister Loretto and the secretary, Ms. Hithe. They really really care about all the children there. I have had children enrolled there for the past 11 years.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
