    Holy Spirit Catholic School Reviews

    We have been with Holy Spirit for 10 years with our oldest just transitioning to high school and our youngest starting preschool and a couple kids in between. We were saddened when the school transitioned from K-8 to pre-K - 5, but the switch allowed us to send our youngest there early. My children have thrived in the welcoming environment. The staff is dedicated to their jobs and to our children. They genuinely care about our children’s’ well-being. There has been retirements and turnover in recent years so my review is based on the staff who taught my children, some who are still there and some who have left. The principal in the building works tirelessly to make the school experience better and by relating to the students individually so they know they are important and they matter. We like the smaller class sizes so our children have more individualized attention.

    The staff here are wonderful, caring and well educated. They consider themselves as a partner to the faith and educational growth of every child. They are excited to use every resource available to help each child reach his/her full potential. You can feel the excitement for learning. The Jesuit, Benedictine and Franciscan houses help the children feel a belonging that crosses grade levels. Our children look forward to everyday with their teachers and friends.
    We love Holy Spirit. You can tell all the staff really care about the students. It feels like family. I love that they focus on acedemics, faith, and building the students character.
