The teachers are great. You can tell that they really care about the students and want the best for all of them. This school prides itself on high academics and the teaching of morals and values that will lead the students to successful futures. I highly recommend this school.

Since they have a new principal, I'd send all kids there. The teachers are great. They have a great positive atmosphere and they have a winter play. They have an awesome teacher named Mrs.Steoklein. She is very kind and really takes the time to help the kids learn. Mrs.Schrant also has a great teaching method that has helped kids go from F's to A's. Mr.Dumbler is a great P.E. teacher and actually plays with the kids and also has respect from kids. Holy Family is a great school. I encourage parents to send their kids to that 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
