Immaculate Heart Central was the best choice for my children. The cost is well below the median tuition for private high schools. I am amazed at how much they can accomplish with the low tuition they charge. Their dedication to social justice and the Watertown community is edifying. Thank you!

I think that most of the teachers here are very good, however they have a problem with student behavior, this is due to lack of administrative direction. I also find the condition of the schools unexceptable for a private school, the so called library, bathrooms and the classrooms are so out of date and run down, they should be ashamed to let children that are paying tution enter! I will say that compared to the other schools in the area, it is the best they have.

As a graduate of IHC, I highly recommend it to everyone. The most caring and helpful teachers I have ever met, and a wonderful alternative to other schools in the area. On top of being a home for great academics, this school has wonderful sports programs that are second to none. I can assure you no school can better prepare children for college, or the real world for that matter.

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.
