What an amazing school. We currently have two children enrolled at Holy Family Cathedral School and LOVE it! The principal, faculty and administration are wonderful. I know my children are receiving a top-notch education in a faith filled environment.

The school is fantastic!!!! I have three children ranging in ages from pre-k to middle school and all are at Holy Family. All of our kids started in kinder or preschool (as preschool has now become available for little ones as old as 3!) have been to the school since kindergarten. I feel so blessed to have my children at such a great school. There is a sense of community on this campus that you don't feel elsewhere. I feel like my children are so loved, nurtured, and sheltered at Holy Family. I have found the teachers to be so attentive, caring, and concerned for my kids that it continues to amaze me! It's a blessing to have my kids in such a great school! Love it, love it, love it!!!!! My only regret is that my oldest will soon graduate. I am not sure where we will go from here as no place can be as wonderful as Holy Family.

Truth can hurt. While the teachers were amazing at this school for many years, this is what I am not complaining about. When you write a review the worst shows over the best. Well, coming from a Class of 2014 graduate I am happy I am leaving. First and foremost the schools issue with bullying is constant. Recently the school allowed some students into the school who had been causing trouble the whole year. I would say, but I don't need to. Academic dishonesty was a huge issue this year in my class and I am not going to lie but I was bullied because I would not share test answers. The teachers reaction to this was appropriate. It stopped, but should it have ever started? Kindergartners have been out in detention for being tardy. The school lacks funding. It is obvious the school wants students to attend mater dei to extend catholic education but the students do not live under catholic values. I am not attending mater dei and am glad I am not because I am sick of the bullying I faced at this school. Holy family I had attended you since kindergarten but eighth grade went down the drain when the students were allowed into the school. Will miss you k-7 but I'm fine 9-12.

The majority of teachers are great. However, the Jr High English and Science teachers are very poor. The school continues to have problems with bullying. The bathrooms are danger zones. There have accepted new students who were kicked out of public schools and they are causing problems. I would not recommend this school.

As Principal of HFCS I welcome and encourage feedback from parents allowing opportunities to address such concerns as those shared. Our goal is to always uphold our school's mission which is dedicated to the education and formation of the whole child - spiritually, intellectually, artistically, psychologically and socially. Our ministry of education supports diverse learning styles and scholastic experience. Our first concern is always the safety and well-being of each student. We recognize that the care and education of the child begins with the family and that parents are the primary educators of their children. We support parents in their role by providing a learning and nurturing environment which promotes strong catholic values.
