Prior to enrolling my child into ICS, I heard nothing but great things about this school. I want the best education for my child and ICS seemed like it would be it. The tuition: We pay tuition for July and August, when our kids are not in school. The teachers: Do not really pay attention to the kids. My child comes home with a full lunch kit and when walking into the school in the mornings, her teachers don't even pay attention to notice of she's there in the line or not. If I could give this school 0 stars, I would. I don't understand how this is a private school.

I went to ICS and then I went a top high school and a top private university where. I now have my masters in just 5 years. ICS prepared me well for the academic challenges ahead and the caring staff also met my spiritual which was even more important.

I've read one of the review about the teacher being so helpful and dedicated but strongly disagreed with that comment. I had to take my child out because my child did not get the help, support or guidance to learn. It felt like a boot camp there. My child was being pressured to learn. I was flooded with negative comments rather than encouragement or support. The teacher had very little patience with my child and was so quick to give detention. She was very unapproachable and disconneted with me or my child. I knew i had to take my child out as this would affect learning.

I strongly disagree with the last entry. THE TEACHERS, are responsive and dedicated to their students. They are available via e-mail or you can just place a note in your child's folder. However, they can't do it alone. Parents, also, have to be advocates for their children educational process. It takes a village.

TEachers are not helpful at all. I wish they were good at communication. Too much pressure instead of what being taught. I end up sending my kid to Kumon as he is not doing well in the exams.

My children and I observed other children running into the building because they are so happy and nurtured at this school. The principal is pleasant and humble. She was definitely the deal breaker for my children this school both have always maintained above 90 average grades in this school and previous school. Parents have to do their part no matter what school their child attends. This review is only my opinion but anyone who writes anything negative about the staff or academics will also have to ask themselves what can they do to help their child or children attending this school.

ICS is a great School that recognizes the sovereignty of God. The Principal teachers and all staff I have met are respectful and committed to their work. My daughter joined Grade 7 as a transfer student and she was assisted to settle in very well.

My child attends this school and is going to grade 1. I like the teachers that I have been in contact with especially my son's kindergarten teacher Ms. Reyes who was lovely and would keep me up to date if my son misbehaved in class. Also, Ms. Breen (principal) is wonderful. She actually knows all her kids and call them out by their names (how she does this I don't know). However, I feel they should develop a system wherein children who are more advance in their class should be given more advanced work. I will see what happens in this 1st grade because my child is reading at a 2nd grade level and so do a couple of kids that I know about and there are kids I know who are below 1st grade level in both reading and other skills. I am curious to see what will happen in 1st grade because all these kids will be there and they will be at different levels. I just don't want my child to get bored even though he is challenged when he gets home. So I will just wait and see.

I greatly recommend this school. My son has attended ICS since kindergarten. He is currently in 4th grade, and does very well academically and socially. He has received Principal Honors every year. I knew Dr. Jaffe and she was a great principal. She helped my son in kindergarten when he was having problems adjusting to his new school. I haven't had any problems with the new principal, Ms. Breen, She was very supportive and accommodating to my son when we had a recent tragedy in my family. ICS teachers work with the students. They are fully enriched through homework and testing. As with any school, parent involvement is also important to a child's success.

This school is a waste of your money. The children in these schools are completely behind in math and various subjects.

I loved this school years ago. The Principal changed and so did the school. The teachers are good but the Principal talks more at you than to you. I know it hard to run a school but the parents are just as important as the students. We are the one who pays the tution. I felt like I was paying Harvard prices and getting treated like it was public school not like there is anything wrong with public school, but if you're paying for private you expect private.

My daughter graduated from ICS. Her years at ICS (grades k-8)is one of the reasons she is well rounded, exceptionally educated, and happy. Dr. Jaffie runs a tight ship. She demands excellence from her teachers and students. The teachers are excellent.Dr. Jaffie gets nothing but respect and she deserves it! This school is a powerhouse. If you're looking for a Catholic School, ICS surpasses every other Catholic School in the borough of Queens! Check it out!

they encourage snobbish behaviour and have managed to produce some 'young ladies' who are rather full of themselves and regard themselves too highly. I am a past student of this institution and so this is my personal experience. it was by God's grace that i did not turn out like some of the others. The teachers and principal need to encourage the students to embrace more of their Jamaican culture and heritage and not treat it with such disdain.

In my opinion, I.C.S is a very good school. It has great teachers and gives studentds a chance to express their personality. The principal is very good with kids and the kids are very well disciplined. All my 4 kids went to this school and the first born is graduating harvard, the second born is going to harvard, and the two littlest are in townsend harris highschool.

My child is a 6th grader this september at ics. She is excited to learn new things like chemistry. She can't wait to resume flute lessons and to meet her new teachers. She enjoys picking out school supplies that differs from the simple, boring ones given to her by the school. She likes to have personalized supplies. She is a big fan of 'hello kitty'. She is not looking forward to gym. Also, she is glad that she has n.U.T (no uniform today) card days. These days are special because they allow her to put together an outfit for school that expresses her own style and love of fashion! Overall, she feels very happy with ics and would like to continue going there. Lastly, the dances last year were well decorated and well planned out. The talent shows the have at ics are also very good and fun for friends.

My daughter is in the 2005 graduating class. Immaculate Conception School has provided her a strong foundation for high school. Not only is she academically strong, she is a deciplined, well rounded child who is prepared for the challenge of high school and college. Thank you Dr. Jaffie and staff. I got value for my money.
