As a parent who just bought a house in Rochester and who strongly wants my kids to attend a top Catholic school, the posts on January 16 and October 26 very much concern me. I also noticed the church service just after July 4 made no mention of America, placed America the Beautiful after another closing song so the priest never made any recognition of the event (he had already left), and the priest dropped (practically threw) the Eucharist into my hands without looking at me when he made the drop (did it have anything to do with my patriotic pin?). I also notice HFS has Common Core books, unlike many Catholic schools. Can anyone comment on whether the new administration is taking the school along the progressive education path? Can anyone conform or allay my concerns? Advance thanks!

Holy Family School has been a great place for my children to grow both spiritually and academically. The teachers are very dedicated to the children and I feel like my children have learned so much in their short time at the school. The reading program in the lower levels really addresses the needs of each student. Parents are encouraged to be involved and they help make the schools many programs operate smoothly. We are very happy to be a part of a nice community.

We have two children attending Holy Family and we couldn't have made a better choice! The parent involvement here is much greater than what we've seen at other nearby schools. The school provides such a warm and welcoming environment for both parents and students. We have always experienced great communication through our teachers and other staff members. The school sends out daily emails to all parents regarding upcoming events and daily news. Academically and spiritually, our children have grown. Our children both love it here and we couldn't feel more blessed to be part of such a great, close-knit learning environment!

HFRS provides my children with a wonderful environment to grow academically, socially and spiritually. The teachers are so helpful and loving. Their are programs to help students who need more of a challenge through the talent development program as well as a program to help younger children in reading if they need it. We are so blessed to have found Holy Family!

We have two Children at Holy Family North Campus and have been here for 3 years. Although we live in a very strong school system (Rochester where I did attend school myself) we wouldn't consider sending our Children to the public elementary after our experience here. Academically both schools both our public school and HFRS are very good, however, what makes HFRS unique is the family enviroment. Even after such a short time I know almost all 90+ children in my eldests grade as well as the parents. I spend a lot of time in the school and find the children to be happy and well behaved. The parents help to establish a real sense of community and want to be involved. I also like that my kids are learning there is more to things like Holidays other than just presents, that they need to give back and help others, and they need to be respectful to all and celebrate every individuals unique gifts. No matter which High School we choose public or private I truly believe HFRS will provide them an amazing foundation for there future.

Our family has been an active part of HFRS for seven years. Our three children have individually thrived spiritually and academically. We experienced one year of Rochester public schools and were very disappointed. We have been pleased with the transparency of leadership at both North and South campuses. Despite recent staff changes, academic excellence, discipline and religious foundation remain strong. Middle school has been an academic challenge and we accept this challenge in preparation for high school and beyond. Great place to be!

As a parent of this school, I would like to respond to the review posted January 15, 2014. Communication between the school and parents is very transparent. Not only can we tap into our daily FOFTY but also our on-line Fundamentals twice a month, daily media updates, and our HFRS website. My understanding as to the reason the Spanish teacher left was due to a higher paying position in a public school. In order to keep the cost of tuition down, Holy Family, like many other private schools, find a more affordable option by using shared services with public schools. That is a great idea. There is no loss of our Catholic identity. We are a very faith-filled community. For the first tme ever, our students are going to Mass once a week instead of twice per month!

My son is thriving at HFRS! We started him in Kindergarten through the UCS system. We were happy with their academic program, however, we did not feel a sense of community. This was very important to my husband and I for our boys to experience. So the following year we made the switch to HF and had our son repeat Kindergarten. We saw an immediate change in our child - he seemed so content! He was happy with his friends, teachers, school and, most importantly, himself. His confidence has grown by leaps and bounds and the nurturing and loving environment at HF has played a big part in his growth. As parents, we could not be any happier with our choice to send him here. We know he is getting a solid education in a faith-based community. Our youngest son starts next year and he is excited to be a part of such a wonderful "family!"

Devastated to see what was once an exemplary school with a strong spiritual base turning into a private, secular environment. A perfect example of the current administration - that essentially kicked two wonderful religious women out of our school last year - is what occurred with a Spanish teacher this year. Our S. Campus Spanish teacher left this fall and was replaced with a public school teacher. The students were in the middle of learning a prayer. When the new teacher was put in place, the prayer STOPPED. No explanation, nothing. The lack of communication at this school is ridiculous to stay the least. We have had a serious decline in enrollment over the past few years and the school, admittedly, has not conducted "exit interviews". Last year, the staff turnover was extraordinary. That speaks volumes! Don't be too fooled by the recent wonderful reviews as parents were asked at a school meeting to provide exemplary reviews. If you truly feel that way - wonderful, but if your reasoning is we just simply must accept what is happening and believe our administration has our best interests, you deserve everything this school becomes over the coming years.

We have two children at HFRS, one at North Campus and one at South Campus. Our experience at HFRS has been nothing but great. We have had wonderful teachers and our kids have been challenged in positive ways. There are great support staff personnel at both ends of the learning scale. There are lots of opportunities for extracurricular involvement for both students and parents. You really get a sense of family at the school. Best of all, kids are learning to put Jesus into their daily lives. Seeing an all-school mass will really warm your heart!

We have a 2nd grader at Holy Family and second our second child will start Kindergarten next year. Our oldest started Kindergarten in Utica Community Schools. UCS was OK, but it lacked a sense of community and did not have quite the academic rigor we were looking for. We switched after the year and repeated Kindergarten. At Holy Family, the teaching assistance in every class, breakdown into reading classes, and warm, welcoming environment were a stark contrast to our experience in UCS. Over our 2 1/2 years at Holy Family, we have been thrilled with the education, school environment and community of families.

Holy Family has provided a strong academic and spiritual foundation for my children. We have been blessed to have had this choice for our children. HFRS offers an academic challenge and sense of community that is second to none. We have chosen to embrace the rigor and encouraged participation in the various extracurricular opportunities that HFRS offers (from the arts to sports). We are confident that our children will be well prepared for high school especially after learning the systematic organization methods and homework/project time-management techniques taught and expected of the students. Students are expected to be responsible, accountable, and interactive citizens. Again, we are blessed to have had this school choice, and have made life long friendships along the way as have the children.

I have two children at HFRS, one at North campus and one at South campus. I am happy to say the school has been our second home for 6 years and counting. The parents are supportive of each other with the same interests including but not limited to a solid higher education for our children and a foundation of faith. My children are very happy with the friends they have made and the teachers and staff who not only teach them but also who love and care for them. The curriculum is challenging for both kids and the life lessons they are learning will help them grow to be leaders in our community. We feel very blessed to be able to give them such a strong foundation.

I have two children who attend Holy Family. We will not be sending them next year. At South Campus there is a complete disconnect with parents and a general lack of communication or care.

I would like to let all parents know that not all of the Holy Family teachers are catholic school teachers. In the 2013-2014 school year they began to outsource teachers from the public school system. They let long time experiencedl catholic teachers go to save money. But at whose expense? Just be sure this is what you want for your child.

I believe that Holy Family has great teachers. They are devoted to the students, and while a teacher can have a bad day, overall, Holy Family has the best. Middle school is not as difficult as the one commenter stated (withdrew last year), if your priority is to complain and put extracurricular activities in front of learning, then it was good that you left. Those comments regarding the new principal, he is going to do as the diocese advises, and being part of a catholic community that is what we must accept. Too much complaining, and not enough volunteering...are you a parent that's part of the problem? Sad to hear nothing but negative complaining, be adults and be part of the solution!

I went to holy family from 1-8th grade. I can honestly say I LOVED IT. I met so many great kids and I loved the staff. Sister karen made our year amazing and I really do wish I could have one more day at the school. Kids are nice, teachers are great, homework is reasonable and sports are good. I would recommend lacrosse :D 5 Stars for hofo. I can honestly say I did love this school and would never have wanted to switch. Yes it is expensive, but i'm glad i got to experience hofo. I go to Adams now and I can say it put me ahead of the game. I have a 3.3 gpa so im pretty average but holy family defiantly did do a good job prepping us. Go wildcats haha!

As a product of parochial education, we have chosen to sacrifice and enroll our children at HFRS. I have discovered the education to be challenging and progressive. As an involved parent, the current administration headed by Mr. Meyer's has provided an excellent pathway to the future for our children to be successful. Adaptation of the common core with the addition of much needed technology will provide our children with the tools and knowledge to compete with their peers as they head onto high school and college. Combining curriculum with faith based education is a program that is unbeatable. My husband and I are highly satisfied with the quality of education and faith being taught to our children. We will continue to be faithful supporters of HFRS, it is a first rate school.

As the previous post stated. Our first years were also wonderful. However, when we entered South campus, 4th grade homework was quite a bit. Then in 5th grade it was about 1-2 hours a night. NOTHING prepared us for this years 6th grade homework. This year 6th grade, we had an easy 3-4 hours nightly. Sometimes more if there were 2-3 tests the next day. My daughter was so overwhelmed that she had to give up activities to try and stay on task (never ahead). The teachers didn't seem to care. The administration never once looked into it after countless meetings and reviewing calenders. NOBODY cared, NOBODY listened and yet the school is down almost 100 kids in the last 2 years. Doesn't that raise a red flag? Why is it that administration is more worried about technology then it is about classroom size? Or even having ENOUGH staff members? Will the smart boards one day take the place of our teachers? I know I'm not interested in having my kids taught by a computer over a real life teacher. I want the sensitivy and warmth of a teacher. We are leaving over Christmas and will keep Holy Family, parents and their staff in our prayers.

Our experience at this school was wonderful in the early elementary years. You couldn't ask for a better community of dedicated parents and for the most part, teachers. Unfortunately, from 3rd grade and beyond it was disappointing, as we found a lack of communication in regards to homework and and the classroom, as well as a definite change in positivity and the attitude towards the students. There seems to be a lot of negativity in regards to how students are addressed rather than the guidance one would expect from a Catholic school. Each year it seems the teachers are piling on more and more homework to accomodate the higher MI educational standards, instead of adjusting their teaching methods.With the recent change in administration and the retirement of several wonderful teachers, it seems that the general atmosphere of the school is changing overall, and I am concerned for what this means for HFRS going forward. Going into the 2012 school year, it is already starting to look like a school that is very different than the one we enrolled our children in under the leadership of the previous administrator. I am not sure if we will continue past this year.

"The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts." C.S. Lewis I am a proud parent of 3 HFRS students, I am also a public school elementary teacher. I am a product of Troy Public Schools, k-12. I have an undergraduate degree with special education and social studies endorsements as well as a graduate degree in language art and literature. I have taught middle school in Berkley as well as substitute teaching in the Rochester Public School system. With all of that being said, I wholeheartedly DISAGREE with the previous review taking aim at the academic standards and quality of education at HFRS. Parents sending their children to Holy Family are not on receiving an awesome education they are receiving so much more in terms of educating the whole child. I have NEVER been to a school (and I've been to many as a consultant and a teacher) where the students are as respectful, hard-working, and morally balanced. Yes, I have seen the flip side to that coin, but it is the minority, not majority at HFRS. I encourage everyone of you to be free thinkers, ask the parents, interview the kids, don't make your decision based on the opinions of others.

HFRS touts their academic program as "second to none" I respectfully disagree. Having sent 2 children through 8th grade at HFRS and 1 one through 6th grade then moving to Hart, I believe I can honestly speak about both systems. Like so many HFRS parents, we too believed that all our children were brigher than average. After all, my kids were all straight A students. My oldest and youngest were both in "advanced" math and involved in FPS. Certainly they were ahead of the public school kids right? Wrong! Our eyes were opened when our youngest got a reality check at Hart. No longer was he in the top math class. There were kids who were leaps and bounds ahead of him - how could this be? He was in an academic program which was "second to none". If you hear nothing else, please hear a bit of wisdom which I overlooked for too long: TELLING IS NOT TEACHING AND MEMORIZING IS NOT LEARNING - then look at the work your son or daughter is bringing home. As to school atmosphere, kids are kids, don't be fooled into thinking otherwise. There are kids making good and bad decisions at both schools. A wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf, chew on that a moment.

Our son attended the North Campus K-3rd and then attended fourth grade at the South Campus. My husband lost his job and we were forced to enroll in Rochester Community Schools. While we had a very good experience at HFRS I must come to the defense of RCS as there are some disparaging and very undeserved remarks in earlier reviews. My son now attends Hart Middle School and previously North Hill Elementary. The cirriculum is very demanding (I think it was revised some years ago) the teachers are amazing and very dedicated. My son has made nice friends and we couldn't be happier!

The faculty and staff at Holy Family are very dedicated and go above and beyond to help students and families. There are many extra-curricular activities available for students.

I am a former student of Holy Family Regional School. It is a great school, but there is a TON of homework. In order to survive this school it is easier to start here at a young age. I can't imagine going to a public school and jumping into Holy Family in the 6th or 7th grade. Yes, they do have some petty rules, but it is for the students' own good. Most of the teachers are great and the former principal was amazing! Unfortunately, she recently retired so I don't know how the school will turn out in the future. Both of my sisters go there today and are doing well. The littlest one has made more friends than ever and has excelled in her work. I would definitely recommend this school if the student is willing to put in the effort. Holy Family made me who I am today and I was seriously disappointed going into a public high school. It was so easy, the kids fooled around, and the teachers were only willing to help when they were getting paid by the hour. (Stoney Creek) Shhhh...... Heck, please send your children to a private high school like Holy Family. It is for the best.

One thing is clear about this school...the staff is extremely dedicated to the well being of every child. The teachers are there because they want to teach and nurture the children, not because they have tenure or a good pension plan. The class sizes may be a little bigger, but there is a teacher and an aide in every class, plus an ample amount of support staff to assist. This is an excellent school.

I am very pleased HFRS. My child previoulsly was at West middle school, where in 1 year I saw how his academic skill decreased, but I was lucky that I finally found an openning at Holy Family and was able to move my student. The teachers here are great and very involved with the students, my child loves this school and has improved greatly academically. There is no greater thing for a parent to see that your child is happy when leaving for school in the morning, and happy when he comes back in the afternoon and shares all the new interesting things that he is learning in school each day. The teachers are well qualified and really enjoy teaching. HFRS is a great school that I absolutely recommend. The Principal is wonderful because while being able to enforce the school's rules is very well liked by the students. HFRS really offers a great learning environment.

I can't say enough great things about Holy Family. Both of my kids are students and both have had some special needs that have been more than addressed by the teachers and faculty. There is no school perfect for every child or family but if you want your child to get a top-notch, competitive Christian education then this is the school for you. The frequent remarks regarding class size baffles me...I have neices and nephews in the Rochester public school system and they are the exact same class sizes as HFRS. For all of you that complain...get out of the Rochester District and see how large the class sizes are in other districts. My friend teaches 4th grade in Warren...she has no assistant and 40 kids. Now that's something to complain about.

I read every review posted including the unfavorable ones. It's baffling to read comments related to large classroom size or that students weren't prepared for high school. It makes me wonder if those people have HFRS confused with some other school! In my school days there were 4 rows of 10 kids (40 per class) with 1 teacher and it worked fine! There was no such thing as teacher's helpers! There is no better-run school on the planet and we feel very blessed to have Sr. Karen at the helm along with many talented teachers on staff. Both of my children have attended HFRS since kindergarten; one is now in high school and the other is in middle school. Both are way ahead of their peers thanks to the cirriculum at HFRS, have a strong Catholic faith and high morals. It has been so worth the financial sacrifice!

My daughter has learned more in the first month at this school then she learned all year at her previous school. Her class size is large, but she seems to get plenty of attention and the teacher seems to know exactly how she is doing in each subject. Each class has an assistant for 3/4 of the day. The families at this school are very involved in their children's education. It is a wonderful learning environment!

Very poor academics. Public schools offer a higher level of education compared to this school. They have lost many families in the last 3 years due to the quality of the teachers and school.

After attending Holy Family from kindergarten all the way through eighth grade I would say my experience there was something that I will remember for years to come. I struggled in many academic areas, but always had someone right there to help me understand and guide me through. I do not ever remember a time that I ever felt left behind or alone, because there was always a teacher or Sister Karen there to tell me that giving up just was not an option. Sister Karen was determined to know her students and their families and I remember her going out of her way many times to help my family in times of need. Holy Family is more than just a school. It truly is a family who is there for support and guidance both spiritually and mentally.

I have two students (K and fourth grade) at Holy Family and I don't think they could be at a better school. The teachers in the lower school are excellent,professional and put the kids first. My kindergarten was placed with a different teacher for reading and writing and is now reading at a 2nd grade level. They really take their time placing kids at the different reading and writing levels so they can be sure your child gets the challenge that is right for them. I know that if you are unsure about the placement for reading you could just ask and they will be more than happy to adjust if appropriate. Kids are excited to transition to So.Campus where a beautiful building/gym/cafe/lockers and another set of great teachers are waiting for them. Sister Karen sets the tone at this no tolerance for bullies school. You won't find a better school.

I am quite disappointed with paying the high tuition. I was expecting my child to be taught manners, religion, and academics. Neither of which have happened. Many of the students and parents feel that their children are entitled and give not very much respect to the teachers, peers, or fellow parents. The school does not follow a competitive curriculum with the Rochester School District and I will be sending my child back to public schools next year. Sadly, I wish I had more faith in the public school system before I threw my money away.

I am very surprised to read this response. Both my children attended Holy Family School and continued to excel in the Honors and AP programs at Catholic High Schools. Both my children recieved acadmic acholarships from a variety of colleges. One would think this would be a difficult challenge if they came from a school where only basic stuff was being taught. I think this person is not telling the whole story in regards to the child, or children involved. There children may have been behind in high school, but who knows what type of students they were and what type of parental support the children received from home!

I have had three children at Holy Family - all with very different needs and abilities. Each one has had great success academically, spiritually and socially. The children are respectful of one another and staff, parents and children alike are kind and community-minded. Like many non-public schools Holy Family administers the IOWA test which is a nationally normed exam. Our school ranks extremely high in the upper quartile, scoring better than 85% of schools nationwide. Students leave Holy Family prepared for high school and more. High schools consistently comment that Holy Family students are highly prepared to succeed and perform well in high school placement exams, honors and AP courses. I am grateful for Holy Family administration, staff, families and children. There are few places with the right stuff coordinated so well. There is no doubt that the Holy Spirit smiles on this school.

I had the unfortunate experience of sending my children to Holy Family. It was the biggest mistake. The teachers are under qualified and don't care about the children at all. The main concern of this school is not the education but the bottom line. How much money you can give or raise for them. The school is far behind of the times as far as computers, language, reading. They have lost many families in the last 3 years because of the teachers attitudes and their lack of knowledge. Some classes have close to 35 kids in 1 class. The teachers are unequipped mentally and academically to handle it so they take their grievances out on the kids. There is no second language offered untill 4th grade and even then it is very weak. Public school is far superior to this particular school. For child's sake, pass on this school.

My son attended full day kindergarten at Holy Family last year. I was very disappointed. Before starting school we were told that they would work with our son at his pace and we were surprised to find just the opposite. Reading is not on the curriculum for Kindergarten. It is strictly letter sounds and 'letter people'. Our son, like many others were already reading. Holy Family did nothing to change their curriculum and were unwilling to work with us to provide more advanced work. I feel my son was held back academically. I am curious how many of the Kindergartners are returning for First Grade.

The level of parent involvement is phenomenal! Everyone acts and feels like family. It is such a warm and comforting feeling to send your child to a school that wraps their arms around them, makes them feel valued and special, and teaches them about the love of Jesus Christ. I would recommend this school highly to anyone interested in a loving experience, works well with the children in academics and provides wonderful opportunities for growth, spiritually as well as educationally.

HFRS is the best place for our children. The administration and staff goes above and beyond what is expected to make it a moral based school that is academically challenging in a caring environment. Strong study habits and leadership skills are taught from the earliest grades so that these skills are second nature to the children. Teachers encourage parent involvement. I challenge anyone to find a better school.

Holy Family has been a blessing for our family. The curriculum is amazing and has far exceeded any other school we have looked into. The staff is remarkable and always available to any parent. The parent involvement is exceptional. We could not ask for a better school. The values and morals we teach our children at home are being further taught at school. We are so grateful to Holy Family and the wonderful staff for supporting us as parents.

My child went to Holy Family for 2 years. It was 2 years too long. The school is over crowded. The education is very poor. The students are always behind when they go on to high school.

We are so blessed to have our children attend HFRS. My son was overlooked in public schools and within the first week at HFRS, they had placed my child in more challenging courses. We have been to many private schools and could not find one that we felt at home until HFRS. The teachers are wonderful and very caring. The principles are truly amazing and always available. The children are respectful, well mannered, caring and kind. The parents are very involved with their children and have given them a wonderful Christian foundation.

My children attended two years of Holy Family. The class size does not allow for a quality education. When I enrolled my children, I was told that there are 2 teachers per class - that was not true. I was told that Spanish was taught from Kindergarten, that was not true. Spanish is not taught until 5th grade. My biggest regret is that I waited 2 years to remove them. We are now happy with our children's new school, but they are very behind academically because of Holy Family.

Holy Family is a great school. We have been connected with HF for many years. The kids get a very good education. Thye also grow in their knowledge of God and Jesus through the teachings of Sr. Helen and Sr. Karen.

Addendum to previously submitted rating. Last line should read, 'dreading the thought of our time at HFRS ending. It's been a pleasure.'

My experience with Holy Family school has been one of complete happiness. The quality of education exceeds all expectations and the care and hard work from the staff is fantastic. I have never been in a finer school than HFRS.
