We recently moved our child from a persistently failing public school to Immaculate. Having our child at Immaculate has truly opened our eyes to the importance of expectation driven academics that encourage successful learners, while building confidence and self esteem. Additionally, we have been very impressed at how Immaculate is focused on developing compassionate and caring leaders of the future. All around great school and school community.
We have 2 children in the school currently and one to begin preschool in the future. Our kids have gone to school there since they were 3, and I could not be happier with our choice of school. The teachers and staff are great, the principalis very dedicated to making the school the best it can be, and we feel such a sense of family and home with this school.
We have loved our experience at ICOLPH. it is a great learning community starting with a strong principal, excellent teachers and a great platform for parent participation that generates new friendships and supports the strong community of the school. More importantly, our children appreciate their school, are getting a great education and are excited for school every day. Very gratifying.
Our kids have learned to work hard at this school and will be well-prepared for their next level(s). Course work can be similar to public schools, but major differences lie in greater emphases on broader concepts of reading and understanding complex materials, completing regular substantive research reports, meeting deadlines, developing strong communications skills, and respecting authority. As parents, we believe these are real-world issues that matter most. This school is a very good value in that regard, with close-knit parents who have similar beliefs. Downsides include underwhelming playground and infrastructure, lack of bus system, limited classmate pools due to smaller class sizes, and early hours of operation (8am-2:30pm daily and early 1:30pm Wed releases). Otherwise, great school for academics and work ethic in a structured Catholic educational environment with lots of worthwhile functions and events to develop friendships and close relationships with other fellow parents and alumni.
Our children thoroughly enjoy their educational experience at IC-OLPH, are challenged academically, and as parents we take comfort in knowing they will be prepared to meet future academic, moral, and social challenges. The staff are prepared, respectful, and go about the work of educating the children with kindness, diligence, and understanding. IC-OLPH is dedicated to academic excellence while providing the moral guidance of a Catholic education and instilling the values consistent with that education.
We feel we've made the very best decision in choosing ICOLPH for our son's education. We live in Kenmore and make the commute to Everett every day, with no regrets. The staff is fully committed to providing the best education and spiritual growth in an environment that allows special attention to each student as an individual. Students are encouraged to work together and treat one another with respect and care. The parents' involvement is important here and something we are proud to take part in. We cherish the friendships we have made with other families and look forward to enrolling our daughter as well!
Don't expect all pretty and shiny like the brochure shows. It has the same challenges and shortcomings of all schools. There's an insidious cultural chasm that needs as much reformatting as the class setups.
ICOLPH School is great! The teachers are experienced and committed. The principal is excellent. The parents are involved. We have had a wonderful experience in our 2 years so far and will have 2 more children attending in the next few years.
More than worth the money for my daughter's education, moral growth and socialization. Very satified and like that parents are encouraged to participate actively in many facets of school activities.
IC-OLPH is a wonderful school. We have an amazing new principal and a quality educational staff. Great parent involvement with a small community feeling
IC-OLPH is the most amazing school. The staff, teachers and parents are dedicated to educating our children and nourishing their souls. My daughter is a better human being thanks to her education at IC-OLPH.
This school has wonderful parent and family involvement!! A real sense of community. The teachers care about the success of their students. Our new principal is amazing. Great things are happening at our school!!
This is an excelent environment for all students. Class sizes are small which gives their staff more opportunity to be in tune with each child and their individual needs or skill level. Parents are encouraged to be involved beyond 'issues' and makes the whole family welcome. My husband and I both feel we've made the right decision to enroll our son and believe the benefits he recieves from this school environment will last a lifetime.
IC/OLPH was worth a move from Arlington to Everett for our family of six! It's a big family in a small school setting. Teachers and staff are responsive to students and parents, and the curriculum is thoughtful. and and current.
I think this school gives their students a conscience. They strive to educate each child to their full potential. The parent involvement is tremendous and certainly helps the teachers and students in their overall success. There is a new principal on board who has great leadership and attitude. They also have many extracurricular activities to choose from. It's been a great choice for our family!
IC/OLPH is an incredibly positive place. All 4 of my kids have loved it. The teachers are top notch, the parents are super-involved, the kids are happy. It's a wonderful school.
Overall this is a great school. Love the uniforms, no worrying and wondering what my child is going to wear. There is one thing I don't like and that is the extra time and money we as parents are expected to give.
I love this school! The academics are above what my friend's son's class is doing at the public elementary school. The class size is small. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The parents are very involved and there is a real sense of community.
This school goes beyond academics, it's a community. The children learn skills that fulfill their live outside the classroom. Among those my children have utilized are: Spanish, Speech, Music/Drama, Sports, Science and Chess club. The teachers know each parent and regularly communicate through newsletters, emails and websites. My husband and I can participate in classroom activities and we feel welcomed. I recommend this school to any parent who wants to be involved in every aspect of the lives of their children. The academics speak for themselves, three of the four valedictorian from the 2009 graduating class at Everett High were Immaculate Conception graduates.
We have had at least one of our kids in ICOLPH since 1994. Obviously, we are thrilled with the school and especially the sense of family/community. The curriculum has always been challenging, the teachers are excellent and actually know your child and family. There is truly a commitment to your child's success at this school.
