Very and very happy with Holy Family School. We like teachers, after school program, sport activities and parents involving. I feel that my son is in the best school in our area.

BAHF provides not only a solid education but the students become family and learn the important of mutual respect. It is impressive to see students learning the important of not only getting superior grades but learning to become genuinely caring people in the community. When you walk in a classroom the students automatically show respect, stand and greet guests appropriately... it is heartwarming to know these values are still be taught. Love the principal and all of the faculty - A+ across the board!

I have two sons that attend the Bishop's Academy at Holy Family and we could not be happier. The teachers, support staff as well as the daycare and after school staff are second to none. They are a dedicated group of professionals. My children continue to grow and learn in an environment that is built on our faith.

I have two children at this school -- a kindergartener and a third grader. Both are receiving an excellent education! We couldn't be happier with the principal, teachers and the school. Our kindergartener has some challenges and he has received a great deal of help from his teacher and resource teachers. Their classroom reachers are excellent academically and wonderful examples of lving out one's Catholic faith. We send out children there for an excellent adademic education but also because we want them to learn how to weave their faith into their everyday activities. Their teachers and their principal help them to do this every day! Our principal is a strong, very fatih-filled woman who calls the students to live out their faith each and every day. My husband and I are so grateful to God that we have the opportunity and ability to send our children to Bishop's Academy at Holy Family!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
