    "Nice Catholic school with average academics with too much priority is placed on fundraising versus classroom work. The kids have 2 school plays per year and the children loose valuable classroom time while practicing for the play. Participation for the play is 100% mandatory and all the practice is done during normal school hours (very big negative for us). Attendance to the plays is chargeable for the parents. Tuition is very high compared to other regional Catholic schools. Between normal tuition & mandatory fundraisers, ICS is about $1000 a year higher per student then competitor schools in Bath & Palmerton. ICS will nickel & dime you for everything where other Catholic schools will not. I removed my children from ICS to join another Catholic school nearby and we first noticed a gap in their Math, Reading & Science from ICS. That said the religion emphasis is exceptional. If you are looking for excellent Religion education then ICS is your place. If your emphasis in Math, Reading & Science and a more reasonable rate, them consider looking elsewhere."

    "Immaculate Conception School is a wonderful place dedicated to the students in every way. It is academically rigorous, has clear-cut behavior requirements, and is a cut-above all other area schools. However, the sisters are so kind and loving, the school also has a kind, family feel to it. Our daughter started at a local public school and we were so disappointed in the level of education, communication, and attention to the students. We looked for a better education and setting and found that and more at Immaculate Conception School. As a public school teacher, I can tell you that the expectations and academics at ICS are far superior to the local public schools."

    "The staff at Immaculate Conception School is fully and truly dedicated to the well being of the students, both spiritually and academically. Excellence in education cannot be realized without such dedication. The teachers are devoted to better the students through a well-balanced academic curriculum such as language arts, mathematics, social and physical sciences, religion and liberal arts in a Catholic, Christian-centered environment. They make an excellent team whose teaching excellence has allowed the students to move on to very successful lives knowing that they received the very best primary education."

    "My husband and I chose to send our children to a Catholic School to ensure that they are in an environment where morals and values are fully integrated into everyday activities and not taken for granted. The Sisters are wonderful with all of the children and make this experience a wonderful one! Thanks I.C.S.!"
