GREAT school in terms of adding technology. Principal Bona and Father Mitchell are exceptional in their roles as well. Small classrooms. Music and language programs. They serve the community weekly. Across the street from the library.

The teachers at ICS are caring, constructive, and I feel that they have prepared my son to excel in middle and high school. I highly recommend ICS. Excellent school.

My daughter is in Kindergarten at ICS and I feel that the two teachers are wonderful. I feel my child is held accountable for her behavior and that she is genuwinely cared about and has strong guidance with her academics. Jane Bona truly goes above and beyond her responsibilities as a principle in getting to know the families and addressing concerns.

The strength of the academics and dedication of the staff makes this school a special place for each and every studet. We find that the teachers and students really work together to make ICS a safe, happy place of learning for our children. It is also the least expensive tuition of the area private elementary schools. Great campus too. Love the gym and extra-curricular activites

As a parent, I feel that ICS has been wonderful for my children. I believe in a faith-based education and feel the teachers, principal and staff all follow the same mission. They teach and prepare them for life. Anyone looking for a Catholic school should really consider Immaculate.

My two children have been attending Immaculate since 2001. There have been many changes in administration- but the parent community and teaching staff are a strong core. Parents are supportive of the teachers and involved in their children's education and extra curricular. The current administration is on top of things and really bringing the school to the top.

I am a new student to this school and it is great! The classes are small, the people are nice the tuition is low and if you have 4 or more childen coming they're for free! In fact the principal came out of his retirement to help the school out!

You shouldn't consider this school for middle school at all. Having been a student at ICS last year I know that the school isn't up to par. I thought you were supposed to learn something at ICS but I've found that I'm terribly behind.

Both my children having been attending Immaculate Conception since kindergarten and I couldn't be happier with the education they are getting. It is said it takes a village to raise a child, Immaculate Conception is truly a village in itself. The teachers are excellent and supportive. The principal is innovative and caring. Parents are involved. And a little known fact the academics are great, just look at the tests scores and compare to the rest of the community, they truly stand out as the best.

My son has been going to this school since 1st grade. It was a great school but quickly deteriorated when new principle arrived! I am taking my son out of this school in the fall of 07 before he enters 7th grade. Very unstable school at this time!

I went to Immaculate for 5 years and I still think from time to time how much I want to go back. The teachers, the students, the staff, everybody is just wonderful at that school I don't even know why I left...

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.
