16 Parent Reviews for Holy Spirit High School

My children will never forgive me for sending them to this school, and quite frankly I do not blame them. Both have finally graduated and are looking forward to college, although if you want your child to have the best shot at getting into good colleges, Holy Spirit is not helpful whatsoever. Rather ...  Read more

I am a freshman this year at Holy Spirit and I find it a very unsafe environment. The teachers and staff are great. However, the students at Holy Spirit are very rude and mean. It is very hard to find friends because people are exclusive. I believed that academically, they go easy on you which isn't ...  Read more

Well, having read the review--from parents and students--I thought it time to write one myself. I retired from HSHS in March 2010 having had the good fortune to have been part of the Spirit Family for 13 years. I saw the kids from three different perspectives. 1)Principal's secretary; 2)Guidance secretary; ...  Read more

At $7000/year to what was believed to be one of the better schools in the area, I have found it not worth the money. Your child will utimately get what they put in at any school.The dress code is selectively enforced Discipline-there's plenty of that...when your late to class or school, but academically, ...  Read more

I was very upset by the sophomore who denigrated the quality of HSHS. I am a graduate of 05, and about to be a college graduate with honors. Spirit will prepare you for college, bottom line. The school, as mentioned, could use a facelift, but it is already much nicer than it was when I attended. Given ...  Read more

Being a sophomore at Holy Spirit, i can tell you this..the tuition is too high and doesn't offer much here. Don't get me wrong, the teachers and sports athletics are great. If you want you're child to be in sports..then send them to Holy Spirit! I cheer, and run track..and i absolutely love it! Most ...  Read more

with out a doubt this is the finest school in atlantic county. The school emphasis is on academic excellence, quality character and athletic achievement.some other schools in the area try to match holy spirits academic level by inflating grades over 4.0 or eliminating class rank. The bottom line is that ...  Read more

This is a great school for a safe enviornment and discipline. The leadership is great and they have an adequate choice of courses. The building is very old and could use a makeover. There is no air conditioning. The teachers are adequate at best. But the school is a big improvement over the public ...  Read more

I graduated in 2002 and i thought it was a pretty good experience. Sure the building seems like its about to fall apart, but you make up for that with great teachers. Most make less than the average public school teacher, but yet they still teach there (some even 20 years and/or longer!). a teacher told ...  Read more
