School Reviews

  • Recommended August 10, 2013 - My daughter is getting an excellent education at Holy Names. She has great access to all her teachers, who are very compassionate and dedicated. She has thrived in the music program, this being her first opportunity to play in an orchestra, and she loves it! - Posted by Parent
