My child had a very positive experience at Holy Family in the elementary school. The middle school experience was negative. Some of the teachers were quite mean. My child used to be very happy there, but we left in middle school.

The elementary part of Holy Family is great, caring and helpful teachers. The middle school (5-8) is almost the exact opposite. The middle school teachers yell and are demeaning to students and do not practice what they preach. I would not recommend sending any students in 5th to 8th grade. I would rate the elementary school teachers as 9 out 10 and the middle school 2 out of 10. The only bright point in middle school is Mrs. Spoerl.

The teachers at Holy Family are wonderful. What I love about Holy Family is the small class rooms and how the teachers and children have so much respect for each other. Safety, Discipline, Principal Leadership and Teacher Quality are excellent.

Our children have an opportunity to learn in an exceptionally strong academic environment with a wonderful community that represents God's children from various walks of life.

It was a great blessing that my son was a part of the school community at Holy Family Cathedral School. The school is a small and unique environment that allowed for the teachers to gain more insight into my son's individual strengths and weakness. In turn, this created a better relationship in which the teachers mentored him through the difficulties and challenged him in other areas. A high expectation is in place for Christian behavior and work ethic. Holy Family works to ensure an environment in which students from all types of backgrounds are welcomed, safe and equally challenged, spiritually, academically and socially. The curriculum has prepared my son well. The academic level at Holy Family has had a strong impact on his acceptance into advanced programs in high school as well as other opportunities. The small group of faculty and staff work very hard to offer the best PreK-8 education.

I have been involved with Holy Family School for 30+ years. Having a parent, myself, and now my children attend the school, I have seen it evolve into a highly rated educational facility. The teachers are highly skilled. The parents and community work together to make sure that it is one of the most highly rated facilities. All involved with the school benefit academically, spiritually and personally. My children have excelled in all areas.

I am a single mother of 2 children who attend this school. I agree with the previous post and have more to add. This school expects parental involvement and volunteerism because we are a community who support our children, thus keeping tuition low. We know what will be taught and are invited to continue our close relationship with our children in modeling the importance of school, faith, and right behavior. The values of being Peacemakers and celebrating our children's strengths and uniqueness run high. I see every race represented with no single majority. Financial aide is available. The teachers really care and their work is evident.

This school is absolutely wonderful! Students and teachers respect each other. It is academically sound and progressing. The school is culturally and socio-economically diverse; the community celebrates diversity and appreciates individual differences. I have 2 children that have attended or attend this school as well as 6 other private schools including a British school while overseas and a school for gifted students; this school has a balanced approach of academics and students learning how to get along with each other so they can be leaders in contributing to a successful and peaceful society.

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.
