This is no longer a catholic school. It was closed down years ago due to financial hardships. This place was replaced with an After School which is named Agapae.

H.C. J. is a very small, Catholic school that provides a very good Christian education. I am a product of H.C.J. and I think I turned out wonderful. My other siblings are doing great, also. We have a lot of students who turned out to be good professional people in our society. H.C. J. have produced a lot of Dr's, Atty's and many more productive fields. The thing that is also attractive is the small setting and the history behind the school. I'm a proud parent and alumni. RTH

This is a great school inwgich children desire to learn. Parental involvement and support is high. The former graduates of the school consider it an honor that they graduated from Holy Child Jesus.

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 makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
