Selecting a school for my children was one of the most difficult decisions I've ever made. I am more than satisfied with my decision to send them to HNM. The school breathes it's faith with service projects like Double Bag Lunch, the Winter Shelter, blanket/shoe drives to name a few. The school offers many extra classes to expand the students horizons and also provide support for those who are falling behind. The extracurricular activities aren't limited to sports. They have many academic and service focused clubs and also have an amazing drama program that puts on musicals twice a year. Father Rich and Mrs Marquez are extremely dedicated and their commitment to the schools mission statement is unwavering. My family was welcomed with open arms from the beginning and have grown to consider the HNM parish and school family as my own. Many families come from 10+ miles away to be a part of this wonderful community. The school could improve in a few areas mainly in incorporating modern day conveniences that help working parents balance their responsibilities (online payments, more consistent communication and fundraising credit for SCRIP overage purchases). The school should also consider doubling up on some of its classes to lower the student:teacher ratio as it begins it's expected renovation/expansion project.
