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.
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!
