St. Theodore Holy Family Catholic is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are dedicated to the intellectual and spiritual development of each student.

Holy Family is an excellent school. My two boys (1st and 4th graders)love this school. The teachers are dedicated, caring and patient.

I went to Holy Family Catholic School four years ago. I am a straight A student, in college preparation courses and advance classes. Holy Family was a great school, and I miss it incredibly. When I have kids, I am definitely planning on sending them here. The school definitely helped build me academically, spiritually, and a person.

As a former teacher of Holy Family, I found it be a wonderful and spiritual community for children. My co-workers were committed to a wholistic education, one that encompasses the the mind, body, and soul. In regards to the lassitude of the teachers, I saw no such thing. The teachers were extremely qualified and competent in their positions. Obviously, we were not there for the money.

I think this school was wonderful! We fould this school after Hurricane Katrina and they made my children feel welcome and at home. They loved and cared for them. My children made great friends and we are sad to be moving back and leaving them behind. They made us feel like part of the family!

I have no idea what this parent is talking about.... As the parent of a high school junior, who attended Holy Family Pre-K through 8th grade, I would have to disagree. My son has been and is in advanced placement classes including Math. He carries a 4.0 gpa and as a high school sophmore made a 24 on his ACT, he took the ACT again as a junior and scored a 27. I think this speaks volumes for Holy Family Catholic School!

I found this school to be very disappointing. I did not find out until my kids got older that instead of holding them back because they were way too weak in math and reading, they just passed them along. Now my kids are struggling to catch up because of the laziness of the teachers. They never called to tell me my kids were having problems, and they always made good grades. But they were way behind the national average and couldn't even read! I would recommend either St. Margaret's or ICCS over this 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.
