    "We just finished up our 6th year at Holy Family and its been great for us. You will not regret sending your kids here and it is well worth it. I was skeptical at first and was inclined to save a few bucks sending the kids to public school but I'm glad I didn't in the end after seeing how my kids have developed at HF. These are some of the attributes which differentiate besides the academics: Extracurricular activities such as FLL Lego Robotics (4 teams), Public Speaking, inter-school sports (Football, Basketball, Track, Volleyball), excellent occupational therapy services for kids who need it, girl/cub/boy scouting (Go 286!), real sense of community with the parish, parent involvement is encouraged and of course, spirituality. There is more but these are my favorites. You also have the opportunity to guide the direction of the school through various councils such as finance, tech and school advisory. Point is, there is plenty of opportunity to voice concerns, have them heard and get some action especially if you participate in the community. The principal is very approachable and greets everyone, every morning."

    "I attended Holy Family School before switching to another school. Some teachers and aides seem to be happiest when making kids feel bad. Homework is assigned and not explained and most teachers don't want to offer extra help. And, there is no one to go to for help when teachers mistreat you."

    "We just finished our first year at Holy Family School after transferring my kids over from another school. I cannot say enough good things about it - community, academics and spirituality all roled into one. If you are searching for a new school, consider HF. We had teachers who were involved and responsive to our children's needs. It seems from reading some of these reviews that some people have had negative experiences, that can occur at any school. Children are not cookie cutters and not every parent is looking for the same things in their kids' education. No school is perfect and no school is a great match for every child either. But for us it worked and can only speak wonders - go check it out for yourself."

    "It appears that in November an effort was made to recruit a few happy families or faculty members who are also parents to post 5 star reviews. I would strongly urge prospective families to pay close attention to the earlier negative reviews. The primary grades are better than the upper grades and many people end up staying just because they don't want to switch schools after making friends and getting settled at a school but this school fosters a toxic environment. Kids and teachers bully children and there is no action taken. The administration is great at selling their story but there is no substance behind it; look into the specifics of their programs (such as Spanish, computers, art and music) and see that there is little depth. And, if you ever encounter a problem, they will do nothing to help you solve it. Don't get fooled by the PR ."

    "We have had our children at Holy Family for the past decade and it is an excellent school. The community is welcoming, the administration is superb, and the teachers are caring. Is it perfect, no - but there is no school that is 100%. There have been isolated incidents of bullying, but these were dealt with fairly and swiftly and the school has a comprehensive anti-bullying program. Several parents have written poor reviews, but we would urge prospective families to see beyond the grudges of the few. Come to an open house at Holy Family and ask the students themselves if you want an unedited truthful answer about our school. Bottom line: we have found at Holy Family what hundreds of other families have found: great education, great values, and best of all, a wonderful community!"
