This is an amazing school. I have two boys who attend, and are flourishing and growing in God's word. The teachers absolutely love my children, and my children love the school. I would recommend this school to anyone.

This school has done so much for me and my family. We have 3 kids that currently attend and we have loved the willingness of the teachers and staff to work with our family to provide the best education possible for our children. The ultimate job for me as a parent is to prepare my child, not for this life, but for the one yet to come. HW has helped in preparing my child for eternity as well as for their time here on earth. I would recommend this school for all families

We have 2 boys currently attending Holy Word. Both of them attended public schools prior and were failing miserably as well as the 'system' was failing them and us as a family. Holy Word opened up their hearts for our boys and it has been the best for all our family. The highly skilled and professional teachers, administrators, pastor and other parents REALLY DO CARE about the students education, inter-social skills and on top of all their love for the Holy Word of God. Even if you are not a Christian, I highly recommend Holy Word for your child. My family guarantees you will be extremely satisfied and overwhelmed by the quality of the education, discipline, love and care that your child will receive at this school. The cost is nominal AND it is worth every penny! Give them a chance and watch you child grow for the better.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
