Holy Spirit is a fantastic school! This is our first year here (2nd & PK4) and my kids love it! They both have very good teachers and the curriculum is very strong. We came from another catholic elementary school with higher tuition and lower academic standards and are extremely pleased with the strength of the teachers and the entire feeling the school gives off. My children have never been happier.
Holy Spirit is a wonderful school. My child attended Holy Spirit and received a wonderful education. She has since graduated from Texas A&M at College Station and is currently working as a chemist for a engineering firm in Austin. While my child attended Holy Spirit I worked as a teacher. The entire faculty and staff at Holy Spirit were professional dedicated people. I felt very sad when I heard that the principal that I worked with was no longer there. I feel that Holy Spirit Catholic School is going to miss Joanne Gawlik in the coming years!
The Academics are well above average-there are some good teachers doing excellent work...there are also some accidents waiting to happen.If your child is a girl she may do well in the middle school but if they are a boy(s) this is definitely not the place. It is run like a girls school and there is no apparent understanding of the functioning of the adolescent brain. The previous review of the principal is on the money.Her attitude is quite clear 'we have a waiting list' so we do not have to listen to your concern, much less work with you! You are very much left to feel like 'if you don't like it, leave'. Your child will get a good education,no doubt, but he/she probably not see school or learning as an adventure or source of fullfilment that it could be. Too bad really, there is a ton of money at this school.
The school tuition seems to be a bit high.. This is my first year sending my little girl she is in Kindergarden She will be going into first grade next year and her younger sister will be starting Kindergarden.. The school itself seems to have a good academic program and my girl has had a chance to learn about music, art, and other extracurricular activities but most of all the cathalic back ground and teachings . The school seems to have and want a great deal of parent involvement, in my opinion this is great... Some times there is so much involvement that a parent may not be able to join in on every thing but it's nice that they ask and encourage the parents as much as they do. In my opinion this is a great school and hope that your children enjoy it as well.. Sylvia Moreno Bulverde TX.
Poor administration, losing all the good teachers. Families are great, but school is in need of an overhaul. In need of a new principal to turn the school around. Considering the price of tuition, they should have stronger teachers and a better principal.
Parents tend to be clickish if you are not active in the parish. The school however is first rate. We have had our kids there for 9 years. Very good teachers and admin. staff. Tuition is some what expensive at over $4000.00 for 10 months non-parish rates.
