I would highly recommend this school. I first brought my 1st child here in 1997. The experience I had was so worthwhile, especially since I was struggling as a single parent at the time. I came back again years later with my youngest child because of the staff and the program at Holy Angels. From

Also, I very much like the structure of how things happen, the technology and most of all I love the structure that the classroom gives to the children. I have less than a year experience here, and only one teacher, however, this has been the best experience for my children and myself. I also appreciate the extracurricular activities offered, the people that give the classes (dance, pe, spanish, etc.) really care about the children and their progress.

As a parent it is essential to show my kids stability and find the right school so not to transfer to another school after finding you made the wrong choice because the teacher upsets you or your kids are
... Read more not safe. HA will love and support you and your children. The principal & teachers are true mentors and nurture that bond and truly partners with parents to success. Even teacher's aides, day care assistant, and the janitor are like family. You don't feel alone with HA School and instead you gain a family. The curriculum at HA is advanced and I'm saying this from my experiences with my daughter who graduated from HA and just started highschool, if your kids graduate from HA your kids transition to high school will be easy. At HA my kids developed their talents I didn't even know they have, thanks to HA. I would tell my friends that I love Holy Angels School and you too will love HA. Come and join our family at HA!
