I really enjoyed my time at this school, and met lots of friends. Our teachers were wonderful, and our principal was very friendly and nice. I really miss being there.

My son has attended for several years and I can say that he has flourished. He looks forward to reading every night and making sure he completes his home work and the extra credit assignments. I attribute this interest in learning to the outstanding teachers. And the children in his class have been outstanding peer models as seen in the sports and other extracurricular actvities. The familes are so committed to volunteering and making all efforts to support the school in so many ways. And i know and can see tht the moral fiber fo the school teachings is a core lesson my son learns every day.

This school is academically challenging, providing guidance for those with difficulties, challenges for those who are advanced. Numerous extracurricular activities and sports. Students are well prepared for which ever area they choose to pursue.

Holy Family School is an average school comparing to all the schools in the United States, but comparing to the private schools, Holy Family is probably one of the below average one in my personal opinnion. The schedules are not set up very well. The teachers only let the students to go to their lockers in the mornig, after lunch, and after school. Most of the junior high schools give 5 minutes to get the books during the each class. The sports teams are not directed by the professional coaches. Also there is no gym. I wouldn't recommend this school for you.

My children have been attending Holy Family for six years and it is worth every penny of the tuition. My daughter had eleven classmates. You will rarely find a class size that small anywhere. The teachers are strict,kind, resourceful and take the extra time to help each student; even if it is afterschool. You will never find a better school!

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.
