- 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.
