Teachers seem underqualified and often cannot answer basic questions. It is a small school yet some teachers are teaching multiple grade levels in one room. The principal is also teaching one class because they cannot retain their teachers. High turn over every year.
No. This school needs to challenge and push it's students to try harder and to excel. I do not see many of these students being IVY league bound, which is the purpose of parents enrolling their children into a private school.
I don't feel that the school is morally corrupt. However, I do feel that they tout a zero tolerance policy but do not back up what they preach. Students sign a contract but are not held to the agreement. One of my child's best friends were removed from the school by his parents because the administration didn't do anything about him being bullied.
There is no doubt that the school administration "tries." Trying is not good enough when your students are failing. There is a lack of communication with parents overall. The new principal is also teaching because they cannot afford quality teachers. She's pulled so thin that she cannot do her job. That in itself speaks volumes to the lack of resources the school has to provide quality education. It amazes me that ANY private school can be rated F. I was told at one point this school was a pillar of excellence. What happened?
This review is in response to the June 9th posting about Holy Angels. Anyone who has read this review can obviously tell this person doesn't have the quality education to write a constructive review. Holy Angels is a quality institution of learning. I have witnessed first hand the care that the teachers and administrators give towards the children at this school. There are many many opportunities given to these students to achieve at the highest level. Every school has discipline problems. To say they don't would be ridiculous. I would definately send my child to Holy Angels. They will learn to the highest degree and will also learn how to respect self and others.
Holy Angels Catholic School is a prize in the community. It has provided excellent educational opportunities for over 102 years to the residents of the Martin Luther King Street area and the larger Indianapolis community. Many of its graduates have gone on to be prominent leaders in our community. We celebrate the cultural diversity received at Holy Angels Catholic school and also the unique opportunity to learn about self as a people of success through the centuries. Many of Holy Angels recently graduated students return year after year to help with various events at the school and maintain respect, positive attitudes, caring, awareness and good manners that defines a successful individual. Like all parents who care about the success of their children, Holy Angels parents make an investment in their children by using this educational institution. I recommend Holy Angels Catholic School in Indianapolis to any parent wanting a place to send their children.
