This has been a great school for my son. The principal is very involved and super nice! We moved downtown from the suburbs and this is a great alternative to IPS. The only negative is I was told class size would be 20 at the most and now there are 27 first graders which is a large class, the teacher does have a helper though.
I would not send my child to this school. There are some wonderful teachers at this school but the politics of this school are a concern. I think that there is a lot of room for improvement.
I happen to be very pleased with Holy Cross Central School. The average tuition cost does not reflect the actual cost to parents. The school offers a wide variety of financial incentives to make the school affordable. My neices and nephews attend and receive the Indiana Choice Voucher to help pay for their tuition. As for ISTEP scores, the school has received an A rating by the state and no child left behind. A rating because the students are showing above average yearly growth.
To be a private school charging $5000 to $6000 in tuition and showing the majority of your ISTEP scores falling below state averages is deplorable.
Great place to send your kids. My kids love the school, the teachers and the principal. Thanks for making this a good place to attend. We love you.
My son has attended Holy Cross Central School for the past 4 years now. The teachers are very loving and very supportive when it comes to my childs education. I would recommend this school to anyone
4 stars my children refuse to go anywhere elses, the grades and attention are amazing !
For an inner city choice, the school provides a haven for children who would otherwise be lost in the IPS system. The school struggles with adaptability to gifted students but makes up for some of that with an environment of affection and acceptance. Probably not the best place if your child is doing well emotionally but needs intellectual challenge. But good if you're looking for religious or moral support. Structure is sound but don't expect flexibility.
