I've found as a parent to a young boy with ADHD, the teaching staff is unreasonable and generally over-worked. The decline in enrollment within the school is most likely to blame, leaving a single teacher to head over two different classes. I've unfortunately made to the decision to remove my son from the school.

I am an alumni of 1988; as well as, a current parent of two students at Holy Family School. Yes, this school has seen its trials and tribulations; however, it continues to improve with each school year. All teachers are highly educated and dedicated to the students success. They are willing to listen to parent/student concerns, recognize challenges and work towards finding a solution on improving the childs educational experience; as well as, improving confidence. They are very open to trying new tactics and strategies and are willing to go the extra mile for those who just aren't getting it. The small school environment is perfect for those who need that little extra attention. Many students who have graduated from this facility have gone on to higher education and reputable Universities. This school is an excellent foundation; instilling religious and educational values in students while promoting their success.

I went to holy family after going to a public school and their grades didnt go any higher. I fel like i was getting a 4th grade education. The only thing thats really good about this school are the teachers. They are amazing. I made some of the best frineds ever at that school too, but i left because it wasnt up to really any standards. I still hear talk about how the school sholud have been shut dow because lack of students. Theres what 60 kids now? The principal is (im sorry) disliked by most students and many parents. The person below me said that kids came because they were bored with neighboring schools. I think that holy family is the shcool they came from then. The teachers are dedicated but the principal i dont think is so supportive. These are my sincere thoughts on it.

Low student to teacher ratio. Students have returned to Holy Family because they were ahead at other neighboring schools and they were bored. Teachers are dedicated and have a very supportive principle.

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 is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
