Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I went to the open house of Holy Child School and found that they were not accommodating for parents who have more than one child to attend.

If you want your children to have the highest level of education with a strong focus on catholic values then there is other choice then HOLY CHILD CATHOLIC SCHOOL! Check out their website site, Facebook Page or even better schedule a tour with your children. I am sure this school has exactly what you are looking for. They are in the in process of opening up a Daycare!

We are so happy with our choice. We love the faith filled atmosphere and the academics. When we saw the test score for our Kindergarten son we were overjoyed.

The students are well mannered. The Teachers pick up on the students that need extra work on the subject that they are working on,and if the Teachers notice this. The students are sent into a Special room to practice and get this subject right.I think that this is great !!!!!!! No student is left behind to feel like they don't know what to do. No student is left to fall through the cracks. This is what all schools and Teachers should do. Holy Child makes sure your child feels special and feels that they can Do It.

Usually you are limited geographically to a few schools and select from among those with limited information what you believe offers the most for your child and usually you compromise. Not so with HolyChild. You won't find more involved teachers led by a compassionate, caring principal. You feel welcome from the first day. And you know your child will be safe. ( To my knowledge there have been NO incidents of any violence at Holy Child. ) Children initiate a 'Hello' or 'Good Morning'. And on my son's first day when he was introduced to his class they stood and Cheered! Check out the other area schols then come see Holy Child. Like me, you'll wish you came here first.
