This school was okay, if you were a transfer student (like me), it was hard to make friends since everyone established their friend groups, so I was pretty much on my own for most of the year. I tried hard to make friends at this facility, but it nearly impossible since most of the students here are stuck-up and close-minded, childish behavior if you ask me, it’s hard to believe that some parents raised their kids to be like that. The teachers definitely had their favorites, especially if one of my classmates parents were involved with the school, so that student would get away with anything (something you would see on a TV show🙄). In fairness though, the teachers genuinely did care if we understood the material and wanted us to excel. Don’t forget about the sports, most of these programs were ran by the students parents, so they had that extra advantage on the team, which made it unfair for the rest of the team.
My experience at Immaculate High School for the past 3 years has been great. All of the teachers I currently and have had in the past have been great. In my experience at Immaculate, I have not really a bad part of it. My time at Immaculate has been fun and great.
My experience with Immaculate so far, has been mostly a positive one. I was able to make new friends, while connecting with old ones. Lastly Immaculate challenges me both educationally and physically, aswell as spiritually. This has, and still is, helping me become a better person in every way.
Although I'm only a sophomore, I can see that Immaculate High School was the right choice for me. One of my favorite things about the school is that due to the size I'm able to connect with others, especially teachers, easier. I feel like they individually know me and want me to succeed, and that I'm not just a number in the crowd. The size of the school also makes it easier to find a group of truly good friends, and creates a sense of community. For the most part everyone is very welcoming, and it's not too difficult to transition into high school or meet new people. At Immaculate I've been able to get involved in multiple programs, extracurriculars, and clubs, and have really enjoyed trying new things. I've already grown so much since middle school and have become more confident in myself and in my future. My advice to anyone coming here would be that high school is what you make of it, so take every opportunity you're offered here and don't be afraid to put in the extra work.
Since I began at Immaculate High School last year I have become more independent, both in class and in extracurricular activities. The teachers understand that not everyone comes out of middle school with the same degree of self-confidence. They have pushed me out of my comfort zone academically, and have encouraged me to meet new people and try new things. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next three years brings!
Coming to Immaculate after transferring from a larger public school was the best decision I have ever made. The staff, faculty, and sports coaches all care about each individual student's success and well-being. The academics and extracurriculars are great and it really does just feel like one big family here at Immaculate.
At Immaculate High School, I have met my best friends, whether it was through an amazing sport program or one of the countless clubs Immaculate has to offer. IHS offers a great athletic program, numerous clubs, community service opportunities, and rigorous courses, taught by enthusiastic and determined teachers. My experience at Immaculate has been like none other, the school and the people within it are truly my second family.
There are many things that make me a proud Immaculate grad. I loved my friends, teachers, coaches and counselors. I found mentors everywhere and opportunities in sports and clubs and the classroom. I have seen many graduates go on to the best schools in the country year after year. Just glancing back in any 2 year cycle there are multiple Ivy League attendees; Yale, Harvard, Cornell and Columbia all recently. Duke, Notre Dame, Georgetown, BC, Villanova, NYU, Wake Forest and Northeastern repeatedly enrolling IHS grads. Fairfield, Fordham, Providence and UConn all pursue the students for honors programs, nursing, business, engineering and liberal arts. I graduated many years ago and I look at how my friends are doing now; happy, engaged, supportive and successful and I have such gratitude that we share in common a belief that Immaculate was a cornerstone that's been there their whole lives. There is something about that community that delivers so much for families year after year.
Great school. Students receive excellent education. Families are very supportive of the school and community.
Immaculate is a special community with dedicated teachers, supportive families, and wonderful students.
Going to Immaculate has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. As a rising senior, I feel prepared for the college process. I have received an amazing education over the past three years, and I have also been provided with many great opportunities to be involved in the Immaculate community through sports, community service, school clubs, and so much more. This is what has made attending IHS so special for me, as it is a place that has allowed me to not only receive a great education, but to also become involved in an amazing community as well.
Immaculate High School offered me many amazing opportunities to grow and excel - pushing me beyond my comfort zone and welcoming me into a strong family community. The school encouraged me to try new things, giving me the chance to participate in athletics and unique extracurriculars for the first time.
I have been working at Immaculate High School for almost a year now. It has been the most wonderful experience. The culture is one of inclusivity, professionalism and complete collaboration where everyone has a voice. Everyone here is working toward the same goal and it is a community from its employees to its students. I couldn’t imagine a better place to work or a better place to send a child to prepare them for the next chapter in their education!
My experience at Immaculate has been welcoming and great from the start and as I enter my Junior year I am more than confident that IHS will prepare for the future. My favorite part of Immaculate is the performing arts, specifically the spring musical! It is a great opportunity to go outside of your comfort zone and meet the most amazing people!
Immaculate high school is an amazing school. I’ve leaned many valuable lessons being here and made lifelong friends. The academics at immaculate are also amazing and have taught me so much. Immaculate high school is such a great school and I love being apart of this school community!
As an alumna of Immaculate, I look back on those all-important, formative years of high school and am so grateful that my parents made the sacrifices necessary to send me and my siblings to Immaculate. The values taught during those years as Mustangs have remained with me, along with the friendships with my peers and their families that have withstood the test of time. We were all fully prepared for college AND life, and have remained in contact with many of the outstanding administrators, teachers and coaches at the school. If parents are considering the cost, I can tell you that your children will thank you years from now for making the investment in their future. My friends and I all agree that with age comes wisdom and gratitude for the formation, education and friendships from our days at IHS.
I loved that Immaculate offered the opportunity to do it all. I didn’t have to choose between academics, clubs, sports, or theatre, I was able to participate in so much during my four years. I played basketball and volleyball, I was a part of eight school productions in the fall and spring, I was able to be a club president, and I was able to stay on top of honors courses. I wouldn’t have been able to do as much as I could without the love and support of my teachers. So many of the teachers I had at Immaculate are pure, genuine, caring people who love their students. I loved the fall plays with Mrs. Wild and Ms. Czel, I looked forward to it every year!
Teaching in a Catholic school is a blessing. Being able to share your faith with the students and guide them in forming a better prayer life is rewarding. This foundation will help them in their lives for years to come.
After finishing my first year of college at a top-tier university, I can honestly say that I was far more prepared than most of my peers for the rigors of a demanding major. Many college friends shared that post-Covid, their high schools have lowered the bar and expectations for students, which was not the case at Immaculate. The social-emotional support was provided during the pandemic, but the college prep education remained strong. I also loved having access to many dual enrollment classes. Most importantly, the friendships I made and memories I have will remain with me forever. Immaculate is a much better value than many private/prep schools in CT, given their strong academics, character formation, great college outcomes and varied extracurricular programs. School spirit and athletics are awesome too. The turf field was getting old when I left, but they just announced a brand new turf and track for Fall 2023.
Great environment between students and teachers, smaller classes truly help so that students get a good understanding of concepts!
