The best jewel in Ky ! This is a small school with big things to offer! The principal is a dedicated, hard working person, always thinking of creative ways to make learning fun. The staff are faith-filled people who truly care about each and every student and wants to see them succeed. The teachers
... Read more are the best I have ever seen. The primary grades have very dedicated and energetic teachers that get the kids excited about learning. The middle school is outstanding, with brilliant teachers who have a lot of experience to offer, and truly prepare the students for high school. Holy Family is one of the very few schools in the city that offer so much to students. I watched my kids along with the rest of the school in a Christmas program this past year, and it was unbelievable! The kids put on a flawless performance with hand bells and they did a beautiful job! Holy Family has an accomplished music director who believes that every child has something to offer to music and has instilled that confidence in all students. In addition to the outstanding music program, there is a wonderful Spanish teacher who is really from Spain! She has taught the kids not only the language, but about spanish speaking cultures all over the world. I don't think there is any one more knowledegable or patient to be teaching kids of this age this subject. The art program is also an outstanding creative outlet the kids have learned so much about. Then there's all the extra cirricular activities offered at the school. I know there is a max of words accepted here - so I will only advise you to contact the schold for more about this great little jewel in Louisville. I have 3 children, one who graduated from Holy Family 3 years ago, one about to graduate 8th grade this year and one in 2nd grade. There is not a better school around! Read less
