"I am writing a brief testimonial at your request of my sincere appreciation for Infant Jesus and the quality of education my children, Zachary and Ruth Cassidy, are receiving there. The academic standards are exemplary, the curriculum is unwaveringly strong, the nurturing is honest and sincere, and the respect and dignity paid to the whole child is a standard every school should aspire to.
One of the extraordinary teachers, and I know this has been said before, is Mrs. Hebert. I wish I had had a teacher like her when I was in school. She has a true care for the child in front of her and the intuitive foresight of their future needs in terms of written communication, public speaking, clarity of focus, accountability, and whole community responsibility. Everyone carries their gifts and she helps develop them by fostering a sense of discipline, accountability, creativity, and exposure to exceptional literature. She instills in her students a continued life-long love for reading and writing.
I am very pleased, too, with Mrs. Pennell's commitment, her resolve, and her determination to create a classroom that has an atmosphere of rigor and creativity. Both of my children respect her and have bloomed from her instruction, both in the classroom setting, and one-on-one if necessary. She has proved herself to always be available to a student or a parent, and always has the learner's best interests in mind.
The Latin and French and music classes have enriched my children a great deal. They love learning new things, they love the approach of tenderness and challenge. There is no immature busy-work. Curriculum is chosen carefully and thoughtfully. They also love their P.E. classes and feel positive about movement without being bullied by others for a perceived lack of skill.
Zachary has a great deal of respect for his drama teachers. He really enjoys being in that community.
Ruthie loves her music teacher and I know they have a great relationship.
That's what it comes to, a way to nurture relationships through the respect of learning, all this while fostering a sense of community and responsible care to our fellows. Sharing and support. Loyalty and regard to self and others. Infant Jesus cultivates our children. It is a harbor of scholastic service and learned teaching." Parent 2015
“As parents of a kindergarten student at Infant Jesus School (IJS), we feel blessed that our daughter is a part of a school where she is getting an excellent education along with the opportunity to worship and love the Lord as a part of her daily educational environment. IJS is not just a school, but a family of teachers, students, and parents, coming together as one to glorify God. It is a great privilege to be a member of this family where the teachers are compassionate and caring, parents are engaged in their child's learning, and the students reap the benefits of superior academics and God's amazing grace. Our daughter is absolutely thrilled with her daily education! We are so grateful to God that our daughter attends Infant Jesus — a school where she can learn, pray, sing, and openly walk with Christ along with her peers. What a blessing!"
