My child has 2 teachers for home room - one in the morning and one in the afternoon and each is 'WONDERFUL"! They are very effective at encouraging the children to learn and to become responsible, kind, community members.
All children in my child's class have planners and a folder to keep track of all homework and help them stay on task. They learn to be responsible for themselves and learn a sense of pride for doing well.
Our daughter has been going to Holy Ghost since Pre-K and we love it! She gets a wonderful education, loves to read, learns respect & kindness for others and nature.
They have sports clubs and chess and other activities. The teachers are top notch and there is a strong sense of community among all parents and kids.
My grandson has been at HGCS since Pre-K (going on eight years now). While he had some developmental delays that stemmed from a congenital condition at birth, the staff has been instrumental in accommodating his needs and helping him to continue progressing through his educational and spiritual development. He is very happy at Holy Ghost. The Pastor, Fr. Mark Schultz, is a wonderful, loving pastor who shepherds the school staff, the children, their families, and all others who give of their time, talent, and treasure. The Principal, Dr. Noreen Duffy Copeland, guides and inspires the teachers and other school personnel so well that they can, in turn, continue to affect the best interests of the students by cultivating learning and instilling values. We see happy, excited, involved children at assemblies, masses, school events, and in the halls and playgrounds. All continue to work tirelessly to achieve the school’s vision to be a “Community of God, inspired by the Spirit, walking in the footsteps of Jesus,” and its mission to be a “School Community that provides all students with opportunities for academic success and the demonstration of Christian values through service to others.” HGCS is a terrific school in all aspects; we couldn’t be happier!
Teachers inspire and encourage the students. They are firm but fair. They are consistent with their approach whether in the classroom, on field trips, on the playground, in church, or at extracurricular activities.
