The children thrive at this school. I would be reluctant to send my child to other schools in this area. I know most of the parents by sight and it is an excellent learning environment! The teachers are incredible and care about challenging the kids with making learning fun. The principal needs to be positive, a leader, and work more with the parents and community.
We have been at IC for several years now and it is a great school. The parents and PTO is very involved and make a difference and really want to help the children. The small class size is wonderful! Would only change the principal.
I grew up in the public schools, so it was difficult to send my children somewhere and pay for school. I love the multicultural Ukrainian and American integrated environment and believe that is extremely important for my children to learn and appreciate this. In our electronic age and world without borders, this school teaches traditional values (and cursive - so many schools don't teach this anymore!), with some electronics. The electronics can always improve as are always changing, but right now the school tries to provide a good balance between technology and values. I would recommend this school to parents in the area.
When we came to the United States, it was our dream to preserve our Ukrainian heritage while providing our children with the best education available. Without IC Schools, we would never have achieved our dream.
Largest Class size is 24 :-) The priests, principal and teachers work hard to assure the children have a safe and highly motivating environment. It's understood that this is a Ukrainian Catholic school, and as such Ukrainian is a required 2nd language class. This is a great thing in today's diverse economy. Yet this school could be helped /grow if the administration /board would be more open to better balancing UK vs/ English activities such as school concerts, etc
I grew up at public schools and couldn't imagine paying for my kids to go to school. But it's the best thing I could have done. My daughter loves her school...she has wonderful friends who share the same morals and values, and she has a very enhanced curriculum t hat includes Ukrainian and Religion classes. I know all the parents by name and enjoy various events throughout the year including a Halloween party and father/daughter dance. Everyone of my daughters teachers have been wonderful. I couldn't ask for a better atmosphere for my daughter. My only wish would be for the High School to reopen. I hate the idea of moving my child away from IC after 8th grade.
My parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends attended this outstanding private school, including myself. I am proud to say that history is repeating itself, and now my children attend. I couldn't be more proud of this fact. IC molded me into the person that I am today. I always came home with homework and positive challenges, and I participated in sports. It made me the hard-working and driven individual that I am today. Thank you to my second family! Be true to your school!
Catholic, private school with focus on academics, and learning Ukrainian. Small class ratio allows focus and mastering of core skills. Added bonus students wear uniforms.
A great school that not only teaches academics, but teaches responsibility, community service, and good citizenship. How many other schools do that these days?
We have only been at IC for 3 years however we feel IC is an amazing school. Our children have exceled academically and are reading two grades above their grade level. It has been an awesome experience for both our children and for us. We are extremely satisfied with the staff and feel very fortunate to have found IC!
Immaculate Conception is a family, not just a school. My kids receive an excellent education in a warm and loving atmosphere where I know there are save and cared for. They are challenged not only to be great students, but better people. Teachers in every grade get to know all the kids and their parents. Parents are friendly to new families and quick to lend a hand with carpooling or study groups. Volunteering is highly encouraged both by teachers and the administration. You don't feel left in the dark about your child's progress or the status of school happenings. Even if you aren't Catholic, the school has so much to offer families who feel their students aren't getting the individualized attention they need or who feel, as parents, they aren't being listened to or don't have opportunities to share their talents. Teachers at IC spend their time TEACHING not doing administrative tasks or preparing for the next big test or count. It's all about the kids and their education here.
School provides a great education in a religious environment with teachers who really care. Parental involvement is also incredible.
Speaking as a grandmother of a student, I give the school 5 stars. In my opinion the students are doing work higher than there grade level. The school also encourages students to do extra curicular activities that make a well rounded child. AAA+++
This establishment of learning exemplifies the standards that are required to keep our city, state & country in the forefront of education for the future, while establishing, in the students a level of understanding, knowledge, personal social security & basic family historic values.
An amazing school with teachers who really care! My son will be here for several more years. The parents are very involved, and the school is academically challenging. It is worth checking out!
An excellent opportunity for a great education is here at this school. With strong community ties and parents who really care, yo u can't get better then this academically focused school. You don't have to be Ukrainian to fit in. Many different nationalities here all working together! Small classes make for an great learning environment!
An awesome school with great community and family ties with a focus on academics. Very dedicated staff and teachers. I am not disappointed, and my son is getting a great education.
An incredible school with great parental involvement and a close knit community. While other schools are closing, this one is thriving.
Great school with preschool to grade 8. I keep hoping though that the high school will return! Now over 200 children at the school. Definitely check it out!
Excellent school with great academics. This is my sons 4th year there and I highly recommend it. The parents care and are very involved! I highly recommend it!
