School Reviews

  • Recommended March 22, 2014 - I currently have 2 sons enrolled at Holy Ghost and could not be happier. The teachers and school environment provide support so that the boys are able to meet the challenges of college prep courses with the encouragement of their teachers. There is a sense of community here that my sons feel a part of. Both of my boys are able to be students, athletes and musicians/artists all in one school. They are not relegated to one stereotype. The size of the school allows each student to foster their unique gifts and thrive. - Posted by Parent
