My child went to this school for many years I found the staff to be completely professional, well informed and caring while some parents may disagree with the pricinpal they cannot dispute the scores , the discipilne compared to other schools in the area and the caring of all the nuns, pastor and community.

You are so right, the nuns, are the only supportive team, the principal avoids the issues, the teachers are mean to the students, they dont show the students any respect, they yell at the students, they are disrespectful to the students, especially the upper grades, they have no patience for the students, especially with the little children

This is a great school ! I have been there since kindergarten the teachers are nice and help you when you need it. Mrs.Lucie is a great principal. I was raised and taught right in this school. And,if any teacher from this school is reading this.... thank you, all the work that you guys have done, has really helped me in high school.

This school is terriable, there is no support coming from the staff, the principal does not listen to the worries and questions of the parents and student. The rooms are overcrowed and often too hot or cold for the children. The only supportive staff were the Nuns and the kindergarden teachers.They do not have any art or gym teacher, and they lied about no having a grant program to help parents. Not a school i would send my children too. If you are smart you will not let your child go there. I worked as a stuent teacher and left in good terms with them but will not send my own children there EVER. Stay away...

I attended Holy Spirit School and the teachers were very caring and the classes were small enough that the teachers were able to work with children individually.

Over all, I was not happy with the school at opted to pull my children off from their. There is no parent support group at the school and no music or art programs. The children reported the room being very hot and stuffy in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. There is only one techer per grade and some of them are rude and made me feel rushed and bothersome. The only ones that were nice were the nuns and the pre k and kindergarden teachers. I would not recommed this school to anyone. The plus side is the school being less costly and small in size. But other than that nothing else is postive about it.
