I like this school because my grandchildren are receiving a very valuable education which does not compare to the public schools.

Ihm is a small school where you know your kids are safe and in a friendly enviroment. The kindergarten teacher is great, she handles the children well and has great concern and compassion for them. Overall the school is a good school

Immaculate Heart is a wonderful place to send children to school. The teachers are very dedicated to the education and spiritual well being of each student. The teachers often go out of their way to make a child's school years memorable. The teachers have been teaching at the school for many years and are dynamic and love what they do. The 8th grade teacher is so passionate about her subjects and her students. The K teacher is involved in many extra curricular activites with the entire school body. The families support each other and the school feels like a home away from home.

The Pastor is exceptional. The principal is average at best. The staff of the jr. high is average, English teacher is good, the 8th grade teacher should find another career path, the 7th grade teacher is okay. Elementary wise they are solid.

IHM is a great start for children. They encourage faith-based attitudes and ideas. They promote discipline and self-control. The staff is dedicated to the children and their families.

This school is more a community than a school. Students have the opportunity to participate in any of the school activities and they build long term relationships with fellow students.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
