My husband and I are very happy with Holy Ghost School. I toured the school during an open house and immediately knew I wanted our kids to attend. The class size is perfect for teachers to give individual attention to each student. This school offers spanish, art, music and the kids spend time outdoors planting trees on the bosque. Our school also spends time on the Air Force base research labs building rocket ships and learning about science. The school teaches the importance of serving others in the community . They collect food for the Saint Vincent De Paul food store house, they collect money and make Merry Bags for the homeless, they pack food for Kids Against Hunger. I love the fact that I do not have to look for a middle school.

Like many parents I was unsure of where to send my only child to school. I interviewed/visited with most of the parochial schools in Albuquerque before selecting the Holy Ghost. My husband and I can not be happier with our school selection. I could elaborate on all the aspects of the school that are wonderful but no one would read this post. Bottom line, the staff is phenomenal, the families who you will come to know are equally great, and the academic standards are on par with what we wanted for our child. You will not be disappointed if you make the choice to send your child to the Holy Ghost.

What a wonderful school! I am a 2011 Alumni and I wouldn't trade a day of it for anything. Dear friends I would like to provide you with four reasons why I think you should send your child to Holy Ghost Catholic School. 1) We were named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education in 2009 and are currently still the only Catholic School in New Mexico to hold this award. 2) Our principal takes the time to know her students and families. 3) We have the best teachers who CARE about the SUCCESS of their students and more than half of our teachers hold advanced degrees in the subjects that they teach. 4) Your child will receive the best education and will be challenged to do his or her very best!

Holy Ghost helped build the foundation that made my kids successful through high school, and now in college. It's nice to see that they''ve been recognized with the Blue Ribbon Award...they truly deserve it!
