I wish every child could experience the combination of excellent academics and character development offered at I.C. Kids learn to be Christ-like and to go do something great in the world. I looked at the CPS school in my neighborhood but I am pleased with my decision to have my child attend IC. Principal is always available and has great vision for continued growth and development of school. I am satisfied with the teachers and there are numerous extra-curricular activities. Parental involvement is second to none.
We are completing our first year at IC. Early in the year we were concerned our son's needs weren't being met. The principal, his teacher and the special pull- out teacher all put their heads together to work with us. The principal is exceptional. She welcomes parent questions, and will change methods and policies when needed to make sure each child and parent is satisfied. Our son has some social issues, but the teachers and staff do all they can to help, without making an "issue" of it for him. I love this place.
I am continually impressed by the students at ICS. tHey are kind and respectful to others. This reflects the values shared by the commuiity of families, teachers and administrators. I am also quite impressed with the above average Terra-Nova test scores for all the grade levels. Great Job!
Enrollment for the 2010-2011 school year has increased by 40 students. Perhaps families that were not satisfied with other options in the area? Keep up the good work Mrs. Felicione and her dedicated staff.!
Although the reviews are not set up to comment on others, I have to offer a rebuttal to the posting on February 25, 2010. First of all, with all due respect, perhaps if this parent had attended Immaculate Conception School as I did, the grammar and word usage would not be as shockingly horrible as this review. It hurt my eyes! Second, the Principal meets and greets the students each and every day. The times that I visit to pick up my son; I see children high fiving the principal as they wander past her office. Principals should not be hugging anyone, Catholic schools get enough bad publicity as it is without the principal becoming touchy feely with my son or anyone else's child. I am not paying $5000.00 per year for hugs and kisses, but for a sound education and the excellent communication that the school provides.
I am currently a high school student that graduated from this school. I attended there since pre-school, and I have a few relatives working as teachers there now. They are very dedicated to their work, and we are all a part of the IC family. IC is a well-rounded school offering many things such as academics, co-corriculars, and sports. They prepared me for the schooling I am in now (mostly honors classes) and helped me to develop and grow. I miss the school but will always consider it a huge part of my life. :)
IC is a wonderful school! Every morning and after school the principal is outside assisting with departure & greeting the children in an orderly, safe fashion. Not only does she know every child by their name but she even knows their siblings who dont even attend school yet. The teachers are very supportive and attentive to each child's needs. My daughter is only in kindergarten and has learned so much already, a special Thanks to Ms. Wilnewic & Mrs. Mulkerrin, your hard work & dedication is very much appreciated!
This school is a great school for all children because there are so many opportunities. I would know, I go to this school. Also, In middle school there is a thing called a house system which works like putting some of the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, here and there, in classroom together. It's a great opportunity to get along with different people older or younger than you. I love this school so much and I'm pretty sure your children will love it, too.
We have 4 children currently enrolled at I.C. We have been extremely pleased with all aspects. Our children love. They not only succeed academically, but they are also learning to become respectful, responsible students. I.C recently was awarded a blus ribbon status for exceptional schools. Ic is the place to be!
I am very impressed with the teachers and the curriculum. My child in kindergarten has learned so much since school has started in August. Kudos to the dedicated teachers (special mention to Ms. Milnewic)!
I.C. is a great school. My children love it. I feel very confident that my children are getting an excellent education. The teachers are very caring also. We have a choice a several schools and after much research, we chose I.C. And we are glad that we did.
I am proud of this school and the fact that my children are part of the I.C. family
