  • Recommended May 01, 2012 - ISJ School offers an exceptional education. My three children have all gotten their start here. Excellent teaching staff, state of the art facilities and of course, the IHM Sisters at the helm - all make for a top notch learning institution. Our family highly recommends Incarnation-St. James Catholic School. - Posted by Parent
