I have been a parent at this school for 10 years, with one child having gone completely through and two in process. My high school aged child is doing very well in high school and was well prepared. I love the academics, the teachers, and most importantly how it is Christ centered. Truly a wonderful Catholic education.

I hated this school...The teachers never seemed to care about the students, were very rude, and very UNcatholic! It's very hard; This school made my panic and anxiety levels sky rocket...They always said that highschool had this much work...I'm in highschool now. not NEARLY as much! I remember when I was in 4th grade, I stayed up until midnight studying..thats messed up.

This school is going to challenge your child. You have to work hard through blood, sweat, and tears to make it through. If you do, however, you are going to be more well-rounded and happier with many oppertunities. Good Luck!

I feel that this school is lacking in science and math. English (including reading) social studies, and specials are very good.

We only have one years experience so far.The extracurricular activities are great at the school.Art, music, computer, library, gym, the school has them all.The teachers for these classes seem to be okay. There are many activities and scheduled events in which the parents are highly encouraged to attend.The school also welcomes lunch time visits.The principle, although not always receptive, does possess a wealth of knowledge in the field of education.The pastor is nothing short of excellent!In short, the school seems to be overlooking the importance of the teachers role, especially during the first full year of school.We are undetermined on whether we will attend next year.The level of parent involvement is also incredible.

Holy Spirit School is an excellent example of how the Catholic faith can be taught throughout all areas and curriculum of a school. The teachers and staff are devoted and highly intelligent individuals. As parents, we feel blessed to be able to send our children there. The school is a well kept secret and very affordable. The school enjoys tremendous support from the parish. It is a GREAT 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.
