IHC Schools is an excellent Catholic school that has a wonderful community. The staff are some of the most advanced trained teachers in their profession. The addition every year of new and wonderful programs not only enrich your child but give them a passion for learning. The safety of your student while in school is top notch. The small classroom size helps with one on one learning you won't find elsewhere.
I am so proud to say that i have 3 children that attend IHC! As a public school girl, i found myself surprised to be sending my kids to a catholic school, but i knew by reviews and what i knew of the school, this is where i wanted to send my children..and i'm sooo glad I did! They have received more than the "3 R'S", they have learned about morality, and in general just good christian values. My oldest is a senior, and have no doubt that he is ready to continue away from home and succeed. Thank you IHC for a great beginning for my kids!
IHC elementary is a wonderful place for students; my son has been at IHC since preschool and he loves it. The teachers are very attentive and it has a family- oriented environment. I would highly recommend this school
I am a parent of four children who attend IHC, as well as a graduate. The small classroom, the religious focus in the school and the family like atmosphere are a few of the reasons I chose to send my children to IHC . I feel my children are getting a first class education while being taught respect, discipline, manners.
IHC listened to my son. He wanted to design his high school years using offerings from the local community college and a virtual high school. The principal and guidance counselor helped him maximize these opportunities. IHC has vision and understands the value of collaborative education.
I am a graduate of IHC and now send my three children to IHC schools. I feel the religious aspect along with the personalized attention the children get in the classroom is essential. The education and the family like atmosphere gives the children a positive way to begin to enter the world.
Although I am a member of the education council, I am first and foremost the parent of an IHC second grader. I am particularly fond of the smaller class sizes; small enough for a personal relationship with the teacher yet large enough for my daughter to retain her independence. I love the religious and patriotic focus with prayers and the pledge of allegiance every morning. My daughter is being taught discipline, manners and respect by actually practicing them every day in school and I am very pleased that the students wear a uniform. I am impressed with the contact I have with my daughter's teacher, providing me with updates daily and an easily accessible internet connection to grades and schedule.
IHC is the best school in the area. I have four adult children who attended the IHC schools and have done extremely well for themselves. My daughter a Registered Nurse, a son who is a Pharmacist, a son who is a licensed Engineer and another son who is a Paper Science Engineer. I myself am a graduate from the IHC school system and am proud to do so. I hope that Watertown will continue to be able to provide this education to our children.
IHC schools has been reaching out to students for many years. Recently the school system has been strengthened by developing a Strategic Plan with many parents, students and faculty involved. The IHC Education Council is composed of dedicated people who want the school to exceed its already great accomplishments. It is a Catholic school with respect for students of other faiths. Take the time to visit and you will see that the school excels in many areas. While the tuition may be difficult it is reasonable.
IHC is the best school in the area, all the teachers, students & parents are so polite and friendly. The quality of teachings to prepare our kids for college is way far my expectations. Most kids graduated in IHC end up going to college. For a small school the Sports Program is magnificent, soccer football, lacrosse etc!
IHC is a faith community preparing students for LIFE. This school affords students the proper faith and educational environment needed in today's world. The Mission Statement says it all: providing a quality Catholic and secular education, cultivating holiness based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and forming responsible citizens whose Christian values will transform the world. How many schools in our area can make that claim !!
For the past 3 years we have been donating to this school's Annual fund and Sports programs. The Annual fund allows us to give to a cause within the school that resonates with us personally. Currently over 35% of the families attending IHC receive some form of financial aid. We will continue to support IHC because it is transparent in its practices ( we know that the money we donate is being used how we want it used) and provides a positive learning environment.
this organization allows for a broader mix of kids to benefit of an excellent, well rounded education in a setting that is safe for them physically , mentally, and spiritually.
This Catholic School System is the result of combining several parish schools in the city. We actually moved into Watertown so that it would be practical for our 2 children to attend. Excellent academics, a great environment in which to mature, and a close-knit network of families make this the best choice for us of all the school systems around. Having our children exposed daily to the philosophies and practicalities of their faith is equally important. The very strong sports programs are icing on the cake.
