My son has been going here for 3years. He's now in 1rst grade. Teacher parent communication is awesome. They are working with iPods technology to keep parents informed of progress. Good education starts at home. Teachers are great. Mrs. Finley is he's a teacher now she is outstanding.

This school has changed so much. The new principal is not engaged at all with the families at the school. It seems like she has no interest in wanting to meet the families. I used to walk in the morning or afternoons and she would just walk by me and other parents without saying good morning, good afternoon, hello or at least a smile! Nothing. Many things that were tradition in the school have been discontinued. It's very sad. It was always nice to see past student come to the school to vist and you don't see that anymore because they are not allowed.

Incarnation is a fantastic school. Kids learn morals, values, patriotism, Christian/Catholic beliefs and behaviors that are not encouraged at public school. ICS is producing well-behaved, responsible, enthusiastic life-long learners who do well in high school, college, and in life. The school is a close-knit family -- the parents and kids all know each other, which strengthens bonds and enhances the educational experience. There is a lot of love and pride in this school. If you are considering Catholic education for your child(ren), you will be impressed and pleased with everything ICS has to offer. Check out the website or take a tour of the school - you will see for yourself how wonderful it is!

Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
