I appreciate that Holy Ghost feels like a family and strives hard to make each child feel welcomed and loved. They have a challenging curriculum for all students and I really appreciate their integration of music, art and athletics into the curriculum. They offer a great assortment of after school activities as well. There are always ways to become involved in the school and they want the parents to know what is happening and be involved. Overall, good school and would highly recommend.
Our family couldn't be more pleased with Holy Ghost. We are an Air Force family who heard about the school just prior to moving to Kirtland AFB, and because of our multiple moves we've had experience over the years with both private and public schools. Both of our children attend Holy Ghost, and they are equally challenged in their academics, their fostering of personal responsibility, and their focus on service and community. We feel incredibly well-supported by the faculty in just our few months here so far; I feel like we have a found a gem. Students here are given a wide open path to challenge themselves and discover their full potential. Dr. Copeland and the faculty are amazing; the programs in place rival those of the finest private schools in DC. This school truly prepares students to be active, successful, well-rounded citizens, and most importantly, centered in values and integrity.
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.
