Lets start by stating that my child attends this school. I has some good teachers, but others that are not so great. My child's teacher last year was one of the not so great ones. I would consider last year as home school since I retaught everything over at home. This year my child has an excellent teacher. One of the problems I have noticed at HGS is that some faculty will lie (about students) to keep themselves out of trouble. This is a problem for me since HGS website claims to be teaching students "God's way". The school/ faculty need to get over the political bs, and treat every student equal. It should not matter what a child's parent does for a living or how much they donate. All parents still have to pay the same tuition. It is a hit or miss if you get a good teacher or bad.

We moved to the area April 2010 from Pennsylvania where my 2 girls attended a catholic school. It was a difficult move for them leaving friends behind and starting new in 5th and 6th grade. But, because of the warmth and exceptional leadership at this school their transition was flawless. I am convinced that a greater power lead us to HGS in such a shorttime we have found a family at HGS. My girls are excited to go to school and have a desire to learn, the middel school teachers go beyond their required job. The children and staff are polite, warm and accepting of new faces. Unfortunatly, we will be moving on the Texas next year and only hope and pray that the lord will lead us to another wonderful and top notch school like HGS. Enrich your child and give them the gift of a catholic education.

My daughter attended this school for two years. We relocated after her second year or I would have never removed her from Holy Ghost. This is an excellent school. The principle and teachers are fabulous. There are always fun events going on. The annual fair is alot of fun and a great way to get the community together in a productive way.

I recently toured this school for purposes of placing my grandson. As an nationally certified educator, I was totally pleased and impressed. I would recommend this school to all.

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.
