great school, great opportunities for community service, staff is knowledgeable. Athletics are a great. Field hockey team is one of the best. Football program is well known. Religious yet, not uptight. Uniforms do not hinder students ability to grow but rather enhance this ability. Art teacher, Ms. Milano very knowledgeable about Art and history. Art program sets a foundation for the rest of your life, definitely recommend taking a class in the arts.

If it wasn’t for attending Holy Spirit High School, I would not be the person that I am today. As a student, I have seized every opportunity to for extra help or to gain more information from the teacher so that I could becom a better student. As a person, the spiritual and life lessons that Holy Spirit has taught me have been priceless. These lessons have helped be grow as a person and guided me to deepen my faith. The family oriented atmosphere is what makes Holy Spirit special. The teachers, staff, and students truly care about you and want to see you become successful.
The Honors and AP curriculum at Holy Spirit prepared me unbelievably well for college. The teachers are there because they want to be; not to make a lot of money. The experience as a whole was more than I could have asked for. There is a familial atmosphere, not only among grades, but with the school in its entirety. Even after graduating, there is a drive within to continue to give back to Spirit. I would say the majority of my classmates continue to support the school, not necessarily financially, but by attending school events (i.e. sports, plays, ...) and keeping up on the latest news.
