Mrs. Mollman is a smiling ball of joy each and every morning for my daughter, Briana. She handles every situation with a calmness that shows the children she is collected and in mental control of the situation. She treats each of the students with dignity and respect. Mrs. Mollman has opened not just her classroom to Briana, but her heart, passion, listening ears, etc. to her transition from another school and the new environment of having boys in her classroom. She is a true example of why we picked this school for my daughter to endure her middle school years! Thanks, Mrs. Mollman, from the bottom of our hearts!! :)
Mrs. Mollman is a great listener and leader. She encourages her students to look outside the box and let her know when they see one of their vocab words in a book they are reading. When the students do not understand a unit they spend more time on the unit instead of pushing ahead to stay on schedule or because administration tells them they should be at a certain point every few weeks.
Our last school had WAY TOO much homework. There were lots of tears and not enough family time. Now we get to play games together and get to have more conversations about things going on in life then about what she is learning in school. Life lessons are just as important as school subject lessons.
Mrs. Mollman has a warm fuzzy jar and when the class gets complimented from other teachers, staff or students the whole class gets a ticket. When the jar is full they get to celebrate together as a class with something fun they want to do together.
They listen to the students when they don't understand something. They let the students interact with each other during recess and lunch to form friendships in other classes and grade levels. They all go to mass together so the older ones can teach the younger ones how to act in church. The teachers lead them and let them think for themselves, not just tell them what to do and memorize things.
Holy Name has been such a breath of fresh air for my daughter. They have a hands on teaching style that my daughter needed to stay engaged at school. The teachers and staff are warm and friendly. They understand all kids do not learn the same way and they use as many different teaching styles necessary for each student to understand the material and don't just race through it. This school was a perfect fit for my daughter. Thanks Holy Name!

Holy Name of Jesus is a solid and well rounded school. Their highest priorities are academics, faith and community. The teachers are excellent and very caring. I feel my children are secure, academically challeged and most of all happy. I would strongly recommend Holy Name of Jesus school.
Holy Name of Jesus School is a top notch elementary school that offers a wonderful education at a comparably affordable price. The school not only nutures the mind, but also the spirit through service projects to help the community, providing outstanding education through teaching, and Catholic Mass. I worked there for 3.5 years and really enjoyed being a part of a wonderful educational community. I would highly recommend Holy Name of Jesus to anyone and hope HNJ wins the contest.
For several generations HNJ was one of the finest private schools in New Orleans, but today the parents (and perhaps now even the administration) seem to want mainly to indulge in this hard-earned reputation than to make the tough decisions needed to assure a brighter future for the school. Overall the faculty do good work with the school's declining resources: The children receive a satisfactory education in a nurturing environment. However, little at HNJ seems to be seriously aimed at breeding excellence. The problem lies in the priorities of the parents who are preoccupied with les bon temps and promoting the clubbiness of the HNJ brand at the expense of the (tedious) long-term educational interests of the children. Unfortunately this is a philosophical problem and one that cannot be solved by simply spending more money.
