I live in one of the top school districts in NJ and moved to Holy Spirit 3 years ago wanting "more" for our children. We looked at various private schools. We wanted high academic focus, strong community and that "more". We easily chose Holy Spirit. First, their true commitment to growing the children academically in the most personalized manner was incredible. Allowing them to move forward and learn at their own pace and encouraging them to grow not "waiting for the others to catch up" as in public school. When they needed help, the teachers/staff go out of their way to work with them. Teachers are always happy to offer extra tutoring which is wonderful. The kids are nurtured in an environment to care for, respect and help each other. The community involvement among the parents is strong. The school events and fundraisers, especially the Tricky Tray and Broadway style "school musical" are fun for the extended community, as well. My children love Holy Spirit and so do we!
