My daughter loves her school and teachers. The class sizes are small, and the teachers are very involved and loving. Solid Cristian values, diversity and zero tolerance for bullying. When my daughter went to public school she was bullied for her race and it seemed like almost all the girls got harassed by older boys. In the Catholic school, they do not put up with any of that. Her test scores have also gotten a lot better since she switched to Holy Cross.

All of my children attend Holy Cross. The staff at Holy Cross cares about the well being of each and every child. I love that my children can pray in the class room say the Pledge of Alliegence, and feel good about themselves and their religion. I LOVE HOLY CROSS CATHOLIC SCHOOL!!!!!

The classes are small and we are a diverse community, just like family! The teachers really care and my kids love it! Our lives revolve around Holy Cross School and church.

All three of my children were educated at Holy Cross. They were well prepared for high school academically. Holy Cross is also a multi-ethnic school, and even a multi-faith school, where all are respected. The core Catholic values are modeled and emphasized, while respect for all faiths is maintained. Holy Cross is a loving school, with dedicated teachers, and a loving atmosphere. Even though it doesn't have a lot of money, this school provides a good education and a wonderful, loving, values centered education.

All of my children went to Holy Cross. They went on to high school very well prepared. The teachers and staff are so supportive and dedicated to the learning and well-being of the students. I loved watching my children play basketball there - the teams were so multi-ethnic and such good friends. If Holy Cross can do this, so can the world.

Students are respected and loved in a nurturing environment. My daughter can read and she will not be in Kindergarten for another year. The food is great and the hours are the best for my schedule.

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.
