Academic excellence! Small class size, committed teachers, in a caring/community environment. Overall the school has high academic standards, amazing music program, before/after school activities and care (that my children beg to particiapte in), and emphasizes moral values and service projects. Parents are committed and involved!

Excellent school. My kids love it there. My daughter is in K there and is already reading long chapter books that are meant for kids several grades ahead of her. The classrooms are beautiful and the class size is small allowing for individual teaching and follow through. The teachers are great, the parents are great. Very inexpensive for a private school and WELL WORTH the tuition. The extra programs such as sports, music, drama, dance, science, robots, and more are great. Highly recommend the school. They teach your child real world curriculum as well as the usual text book curriculum and additionally they help kids expand on being a good human being and helping others.

Holy Family School (Auburn, WA) is a terrific school. My daughter is getting the attention from her teacher, good class size ratio and the staff and parents all have vested interest in making sure the kids get a great education. It has a great sense of community. My daughter is learning to become a compassionate and responsible human being.

I absolutley love going to Holy Family. This school has not onlly made me grow academically, but also in spirit. The teachers are amazingly kind and they could not be any better. I give Holy Family an A+!

My child has grown not only academically but also learned to become a part of a 'school-family-community'. Parents and teachers work closely together for the betterment of the kids. The culture is that of being SIMPLE despite the fact that you are in a private school. It is a very small school, too so the teachers, parents and students know each other well.

As has already been posted by another reviewer - great sense of community. Teachers that care and most importantly a sense of discipline and what is right and wrong taught with compassion and from the heart.

There is a real sense of community there. Most of the teachers have or have had students at Holy Family. Parental involvement in the school is part of the tuition contract, and the parents get to know each other.

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.
