Immaculate is a wonderful place to go to school. Students are received an excellent academic education and spiritual formation during their 4 years at IHS. I was blessed to be a student there and now I am blessed to be a teacher there. The Immaculate Family is truly special. I believe Immaculate is a phenomenal place for students to learn and to thrive.

Both myself, my sister and my husband graduated from IHS in the early and late 80s. The education we received from there was a huge stepping stone for college. I also played basketball and softball for the Mustangs and made many lasting friendships. The faculty was engaged and supportive in any way they could. We will be considering Immaculate for our son in the future for sure!! Once a Mustang, always a Mustang!!

As an alumnus, I have found myself drawn back to their school after almost 50 years. My experience at Immaculate afforded me great success in qualifying for higher education. The education provided here goes way beyond classroom studies. It is the perfect environment for created a well-rounded individual. Their athletic programs are unmatched and their arts programs are world class. The school has received the highest awards in both areas every year for many years. The religious programs guide students to mature in their faith and prepare them to enter adulthood as moral, responsible individuals. My education at Immaculate has been with me through my entire life and I am currently retired. I am gratefully involved with the Alumni Association even after all these years. For me, it is still home. If you are considering a private education, you would be doing yourself a big disfavor if they do not take the time to investigate Immaculate. The women and men who lead this school are the best in the business!

Immaculate High School provided my children with an excellent academic foundation, including honors and AP opportunities. IHS helped them to develop leadership skills and also encouraged service opportunities beyond the standard HS requirement. At Immaculate, my children participated in a variety of enrichment activities including, sports, musical theater, and mock trial, to name a few. Because of the smaller environment, they developed close relationships with their teachers. As parents, we feel blessed that they had such a well rounded high school experience, one that prepared them to excel in college and beyond.

Considering sending your child to Immaculate High School? A decision you will never regret. As a family, we are completely impressed with all the offerings that the school has, but most importantly the warmth of the school community. My oldest daughter is a graduate of the class of 2020 and we could not be more proud of all of her accomplishments during her four years at IHS. She has grown in knowledge, faith, kindness, and matured into a wonderful young lady. This year our youngest daughter will be entering as a freshman and we look forward to her growth with Immaculate over the next four years. We are certain that she will be confidently prepared for her future college career plans just like her sister. Though she has not officially started, she is already being embraced by the students and staff reaching out to her personally and welcoming her. She already has a sense of belonging and extended family. We are completely satisfied with IHS and are certain you will be too.

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.
