As a diverse, Catholic Christian community, IHM School models Gospel values while striving to achieve excellence, in order to develop positive, productive, Christian members of society.
IHM believes that each child is an individual of great worth, blessed with God given gifts and talents; all children can learn; education is a life long process which begins at home, is fostered at school, and continues through life; the total development of each child includes spiritual, social, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth; teachers, administrators and support staff should create a safe and nurturing educational environment that challenges each child to achieve his/her potential; children should be educated in a caring Christian community; and schools should promote the love of God and one another through service to the school and community.

School Notes:

  • As a parish ministry, Immaculate Heart of Mary School achieves academic excellence in a Christ-centered, caring environment which encourages self-worth, self-discipline, and acceptance of the dignity of the individual. Excellence in Catholic schools has three major components: religious values integrated into the curriculum, high quality academic education, and a structured atmosphere. The curricular emphasis of the academic program is to prepare students for successful experience in competitive high school and college preparatory programs. Within this definition, Immaculate Heart of Mary School has a long tradition as a school of excellence, measured by parental satisfaction and by the accomplishments our graduates.
