My child completes her homework in less than 30 mins. More work should be given. The school did not give out lessons for the summer to help continue their education.

The teachers are great roll models, since this is a catholic school they know there is no tenure but they earn their place every year. What a great staff at this school.

It is so great how they teach the students the proper ethics and morals that are lacking in the local public schools.

This school is fantastic. The staff cares so much for the children. I wish I found this hidden treasure sooner so my older children could have attended. They don't put up with any nonsense. There is no bullying or trouble like the local public schools have. My child has learned so much and is ahead of his friends. They have extra free tutoring available and really work with the parents. God Bless this place!!!!

This school is really good. The teachers work so hard and really are receptive to the parents concerns. The principal and his staff call you back very quickly and he is never too busy to meet with you. They have a great aftercare program and summer camp. I feel bad for the teachers when they get a parent who won't admit when their child is wrong or acts out because of their own failings as a parent. I looked at the review below me and have to say if your child acts up so much that you need to go on a field trip with them I would say you need to stop blaming the school and look at whats causing this behavior at home. I have been at this school for years and never experienced what they are saying. I love this school and recommend it to everyone. If you don't like it put your child in the local public school and they can behave any way they like. At Holy Cross you need to be involved as a parent not just say things and not follow through. Stop trying to tear down a great place.

35 kids in a class, little to no homework, scarce extra curricular activities, I definitely do not feel my child is being challenged.....be very careful of the Independent Mission Schools. They pack the classes to the brim and are not preparing "our "children academically! Will not be returning! The school environment is safe if that is you main concern as a parent.

Holy Cross offers a unique educational opportunity for young children that effectively prepares them for an opportunity to enroll with one of the city s top high schools. Teachers take great pride in educational enrichment, building sound foundational values, and instilling discipline which is evident in the student's academic performance and social etiquette. These bright well-mannered kids really do stand out in the area. I am proud of my daughter s overall development. .
