Holy Ghost Catholic School 5

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!

Mrs. Albers literally brings the "music" to the students, and by extension, to the parents and other family members of the students. She is a wonderful music teacher and produces musical programs that are quite lovely, be it at the school or in the community.

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.

Given the current educational environment, the homework being assigned is preparing the students to be even better prepared for their secondary and future education.

Students are encouraged at every turn to do their best, to "stick with it", to persist and therefore succeed.

It's been said many times that others in the community who have had occasion to interact with the students have expressed their positive feedback as to how the students comport themselves.

All the teachers through the years have been very instrumental in my child's development. They have help foster a positive learning and let us know when our child has had difficulties. Kudos to Dr. Copeland (the principal) also.

The amount of homework is fair and just for the appropriate age of the student. It is not too much nor is it too little.
