My son is in pre-k and we are thrilled with the education. Holy Name is a great community and with Father Jim as the new administrator, we know the school and parish are destined for even greater success. It's so hard to find the right school in Park Slope...either too expensive, too crowded, or you don't even get in! Some public schools have great reputations, but they are soooo crowded and many people without siblings have been turned away. Our son is thriving in this nurturing and loving environment. All the teachers and parents are very involved. The academic expectations are high, and there is little tolerance for bad behavior...which is especially important these days with so much bullying elsewhere.

I found this school by accident and am amazed. The education is excellent, the teachers very caring and nurturing and with new leadership the sky is the limit. The call themselves the best kept secret in Brooklyn. Well I hope the secret gets out. State of the art computer lab is a great addition. I recommend you check it out.

My daughter is finishing up 1st grade at Holy Name. I'm so glad that I found this school. The staff, as well as other parents, are very helpful. My daughter loves this school very much and she's doing well.

My daughter started Holy Name School in the 3rd grade and is now in 5th grade. She really likes the school, is learning many subjects, and has the opportunity to live the Catholic faith without pressure. She likes and participates in the sports (open to everyone) church activities, and dance class. Holy Name is a great school for everyone with a diverse student body and the kids have many choices. The teachers are very good! The school is a real bargain.

My daughter is now in Grade 4 at Holy Name School. It offers the best of traditional Catholic parochial school education--standards, strong values, safety--along with a family-like warmth and caring. The student body reflects the beautiful diversity of today's Brooklyn. So far, we've seen none of the ethnic tension, cliques, bullying, or sleazy fads that tend to crop up around this phase, either! School also opts out of the snobbish rat-race of the area's super-pricey private schools--my daughter, who is gifted, works cooperatively with students at all levels of ability and income. Facilities and programming are 'basic,' not premium (no gymnasium, for example, although there are computer and science labs and 2 nice libraries), but the school, in a lovely neighborhood, is a great alternative to the troubled NYC public schools, at a fraction of private school tuition. Nice sports program, too--again, gently priced and without pressured atmosphere.

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.
