Great school gave me a lot of opportunities to succeed and helped me grow as an individual. A lot of diversity and fun built into learning teachers were very engaged and looked forward to teaching.

I loved this school from the moment I started my freshmen year. It offered many opportunities, as well as a fresh start, given that a lot of us were coming from different places. However, the moment I started my Sophomore year, it had become extremely clicky (and limited) as to who fit where. In a school that encourages a sense of belonging, and a warm atmosphere, I found this rather strange. I came from a school that wasn't much larger, but found a tremendous difference in the sense that everything got around to everyone. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed my high school experience at Immaculate High School, but I also feel as though it is not for everyone.

Immaculate High School was a great school for me in the '80's and is the perfect school for my children today. I currently have a junior and a freshman. They love their school, their teachers and the friends they have made. It is such a welcoming atmosphere. The academics are top-notch and the school is constantly evolving to meet the needs of the 21st century. Teachers truly care about each student. The school size is PERFECT! At close to 500 students, it is large enough to offer many course, athletics, arts and service opportunities, yet small enough to feel like a close-knit community where you are never just a number. The best part is that my children are not only growing academically, but are also encouraged to live lives of character, where the school's motto of "Reverence, Respect and Responsibility" are a part of everything they do.

I have two daughters, Class of 2014 and Class of 2018. I love this school! Great academics, lots of extra-curricular options, but most of all a truly caring community. The motto is Respect, Reverence, Responsibility and you can see it in the interactions between students, faculty and visitors to the school. My daughter who has graduated feels that she was extremely well prepared for college.
