Posted January 27, 2010

My daughter has been attending Holy Names since she was three. (I needed to have her in a safe, caring environment while I worked, and I hit the jackpot here.) The staff are unbelievable. They are very dedicated, caring, loving and professional. They have supported my daughter as a young child and now as a young girl and work with her strengths and weaknesses: intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. My daughter loves it there! She is always careful who she gives her heart to yet she has wholeheartedly given it to many of her teachers, staff and friends at AHN. The school is small, most of the teachers have been there for a while, and the families are very nice. AHN has been a gift to us. Financially it is a stretch for me, but the value--the character-building, the love and care, the respect, one really can't put a price on that.

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.
