We have three children, one graduated and two are still at Holy Spirit. We came to this school because our local public school was a complete let down. No academics, tests, book reports etc. Holy Spirit addresses all areas of academics, social skills and has excellent teachers and staff. The challenge is there and when it comes to sports, everyone plays! We just love our school!

This is a terrific school. Our daughter went here for her 4th and 5th grades after being in a fairly good public school. Her learning was at least a grade level above what was being taught at that public school. Caring teachers..Good discipline..High parental involvement.

Holy Spirit Catholic School in Grand Rapids, Michigan is outstanding. I first moved to this area in June 2004 and my son started attending a different Catholic School and in November 2005 we did a mid-semester transfer to Holy Spirit and he has again started to flourish and love education again. The staff and teachers are very kind, fun, and experienced. The Curriculum is very appropriate for his age group and challenging. The extra's they do with the children, the lunch program is very good, and my sone just enjoys going to school. I would recommend this school to anyone new/old in the area.

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.
