Infant Jesus School has gone through some rough stages recently. Whether is was because of the principle, some self righteous parents, or teachers who thought they should drive the ship, or the 22.7% decline in Catholic School enrollment nationwide. Now some people have left IJS and written some toxic reviews to somehow serve their sense of vindication, but families at IJS love our children, our teachers and the community that we share. There is a school for everyone, but no one school is for everyone. Infant Jesus School is under new leadership, dealing with declining enrollment that is seen nationwide, but we still have GREAT teachers, parents who are invested in the school and students among the best in the state.

My child attended Infant Jesus for 3 years, The Principal had her favorites that to me was obvious, she did not participate in any school functions. The Parent meeting would be at 9:00Am most of us have to work so we could not attend. The teachers were fantastic but the leadership was a whole other story, glad they hired a new principal but she does have her work cut out for her.

Infant Jesus school used be a wonderful school and then the principal ruined it with her selfish and unrealistic way of thinking and treating people. We left the school because we had enough! The teachers are leaving one right after the other and the place is falling apart! They brought in a temporary principal and I feel bad for that person. This school should just close and give up. It will take a miracle to bring it back to what it once was. I feel bad having to write this, but I want others to be aware. There is another great school in Nashua that you can go to and get that education you are looking for.

Infant Jesus has amazing teachers that care about their students' education and their well being! They always go above and beyond for their students inside and outside of the classroom. The school has a friendly atmosphere and welcoming attitude. I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested in a superior, well rounded education for their child.

Infant Jesus is exceptional. Our daughter is just finishing kindergarten. We are always receiving compliments on her politeness. The school has emphasized kindness, politeness, and love of God, Country and Family. It's old fashioned values struck a chord with us. Plus, the opportunities these kids have are amazing. Retired US Supreme Court Justice David Souter dropped in to visit with the 5th graders! Where does that happen? The academics, including journal writing and computers (they learn Powerpoint, Excel, etc.), are all brought to the table while helping to develop kind, committed citizens of the word.

My son has been at Infant Jesus for 5 years and I can't say enough wonderful things about it. We started off at another Catholic School and transferred in for 1st grade. The teachers are so loving and caring. They are a close knit group and do so many extra things for the children. Can't say enough about this school.

We started preK in this school thinking how great it would be for our child to have religion as part of his daily education. The teacher ended up being a nightmare. No communication. When asked questions she acted as though we were putting her out. By the second month in we were not only turned off by the excessive fundraising and donations but the teachers attitude, we ended up removing our child. Not the first impression to school I wanted for my child. He dreaded going. Once he moved onto another program he flourished, loved school and his new teachers.

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.
