School Reviews

Our children have been attending Holy Cross School for five years. We are very satisfied with the quality of the education they are receiving. We feel that our children are being challenged academically while being exposed to weekly centered based studies including Art, Music, Technology, Spanish and Physical Education making the educational experience very well rounded. The campus is beautiful and well maintained. There is a real sense of community and parent involvement at this school.
