This was our first year at Holy Family and we feel so blessed to be a part of what is truly a family! The half day kindergarten program was phenomenal. A family friend who has taught in the public school system for 20 years was absolutely astounded by what my son was learning. He is miles ahead of the 1st graders and some 2nd/3rd graders she observes in her district. Academically and spiritually this school can not be beat. The parental involvement is wonderful. Everyone we come into contact with truly cares about their child and simply wants the absolute best for their children. Therefore, the parents are willing to be involved 100%. I am excited to send my younger children to this school and we are more than willing to make the sacrifices necessary to do so. Sr. Karen and the entire staff deserve major kudos!
I currently have 2 children at Holy Family. I feel very blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school. Our principal and teachers are very loving and caring toward the children as well as the parents. The education they have received has been outstanding. I would recommend this school to any family.
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.
Have had 4 children attend this school all just love the school and the academics were 1st class. Sister Karen has developed and old fashion learning center. Every child feels part of the family and they have a truly family focused education.
