My children love this school, as do I. They have learned so much with no pressure of the MCAS. They have fun and can relax as they are learning. The faculty is great. There's a family atmosphere when you walk into the building. It's a great school!

My daughter attended the Pre-K at Holy Name school last year and is enrolled for kindergarten for the upcoming school year. The teachers and staff at Holy Name school are amazing. They have a great collaboration with the Elms which is fantastic. My daughter has received speech therapy through this collaboration and I have seen a world of difference. I am amazed at what she has learned and accomplished this past year. I would recommend any parent looking into catholic education to look at Holy Name School. It is has a great family atmosphere and has activities throughout the year for the students and their families (i.e. Pumpkin Festival).

I have had 2 children pass through Holy Name School and I was very pleased with the experience. It has a family type atmosphere where children are known personally by the principal and teachers. Individual attention is given to the student and the teachers are very attuned to a student's performance level noticing strengths and weaknesses. I felt the teachers were very knowledgeable in their subject matter and especially in the attentiveness to the student and their learning abilities. The school has since built a brand new gymnasium which is gorgeous and have art and music programs for the students that I feel are very important in the overall curriculum. My children still like to go back and visit the school and teachers as they feel a connection with them that lasts to this day. I feel Holy Name gave my kids a great foundation for learning through life.

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.
