Holy family is an excellent school with great academics and athletics but it would be nice if there was more diversity in the student enrollment.

We have had children attend the parish school for the last 16 years. It is more than a school, it is a family. Our school works hard to make sure that each parent feels connected, and each child feels welcome and valued. It is a great place; academically and spiritually. Our oldest, now a sophomore in college was prepared for both high school and college by the great teachers, principal, and parents who are dedicated to making Holy Family great. Jim Young

I attended HFPS. It's a great school. The class sizes are small and you can really get any extra help you need. Teachers are ready, willing, and able to help you. As for conflict within the school; it's solved quickly and efficiently, if it even arises. Students respect their teachers and each other. It's a great school.

This school is the jewel of Milwaukee's North Shore. Graduates of this grade school have been valedictorians of both Marquette High School and Dominican High School in two of the past three years.

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.
