Why Should I Choose Holy Angels Regional School for my Child?

It’s perfectly natural for parents to ask this question.  After all, the choice of where your child attends school is surely one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make as a parent.    Often, parents’ first question is: how much will it cost? Will I be able to afford it? Actually, that should be parents’ last question. When it comes to our kids, and their education, the real question is:  “Can I afford not to?”

So, here are a few points to ponder as you make that decision.    

We acknowledge that parents are the primary educators of their children. That’s why we promise to keep you informed about your child’s progress, any problems that he or she may be having, and how your child likes to learn. In addition, we expect that you will be involved in your child’s education all through his / her school career.  There are plenty of activities that your child will want to involve you in, from helping with homework to volunteering at school in whatever capacity you are able. That way, we demonstrate to your child that we are partners in your awesome responsibility to be his or her primary educator.    

We hold students to high standards. Holy Angels Regional teachers are professionally prepared and properly certified to meet the standards of every kind of school.  But because we acknowledge that parents want the very best for their children, we don’t hesitate to demand the best from your child. Homework, projects, and even tests are rigorous in our school. This is an act of faith in your child: a belief that your child can reach his or her highest potential. The result is that our students are well prepared for their next academic challenge-high school.    

But even more important, our teachers acknowledge that their students are worthy of the highest expectations because you believe the very same thing.  

Holy Angels Regional School is different where it counts. The very core of our Catholic school is the Gospel teaching of Jesus, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Central to the school day is prayer and the practice of “what would Jesus do.” Students have the opportunity to learn their faith and to live it.  Social justice is not only taught, it is lived, and our goal is to bring your child to an awareness of God’s love for him or her, as well as his or her obligation to live a moral life and work for justice for others.      

Holy Angels Regional School emphasizes what matters in school.  We don’t put a priority on sports, or other extra-curricular activities.  We believe that a solid, academic, value-laden education is more important than the “frills”.  You won’t find fads or social experiments going on in our schools. We have found a formula that works and we simply continue to refine that formula.  At Holy Angels Regional, we get results because we believe that the tried and true can be trusted. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have up-to-date facilities and teaching tools.  Our graduates are technologically literate, and they understand that computers and other technology are just means to learning; they are not the goal of learning.

We have been educating our community’s children for almost one hundred years. We employ administrators and teachers who are there for no other reason than to teach your child. We value your child as a unique, special individual who is more than a test score or a statistic.    

I encourage you to come and experience just what makes our school different. Schedule a tour and start your family’s journey with us now!

Our 8th graders were asked to share some positive experiences about using the Rosetta Stone program to learn Spanish!
Joshua- "I like the program because it walks you through learning Spanish and it makes it easy for beginners."
Liam- "I like that each student can learn at his/her own pace, which allows us to fully learn the content."
Ava B.- "I like the independence portion. Unlike an open classroom environment, the teacher focuses on you and only you. You feel much more accomplished then when you pass."
Angellina- "It helps me learn at my own pace. This helps me read and speak Spanish better."
Ethan- "The program is very independent and it is easy to use and understand. Rosetta Stone really is a fun tool to learn a new language."
Madeline- "We get to learn three ways: by reading, speaking, and seeing pictures. This helps us understand conversational Spanish that we can really use, instead of just learning and memorizing facts."
Shane- "It is helpful that you can work at your own pace."
Angellica- "It helps me understand Spanish more and how to speak it properly."
Dominik- "It is easier to understand and you can go at your own pace while learning."
Darin- "You can learn at your own pace instead of having to keep up with the whole class."
Olivia- "It is a great way to learn Spanish, especially if you were having difficulties learning it before. It also teachers you what you want to say and how to say it.
Chris- "You can learn how to pronounce Spanish properly and speak more fluently from this program."
Jonathan- "You learn how to both speak and understand Spanish. It also helps you learn alongside native speakers."
Aidan- "It is a great program because it lets you work at your own pace. It is also interactive, and you can always check your own progress."
Heidi- "It helps you interact with real people which helps you become more fluent in speaking Spanish."
Pablo- "It is really easy to use this program."
Andrew- "I like using the headphones and that the program is interactive. It is cool to speak to the program because then you are really speaking Spanish."
Giacomo- "I like that you can go at your own pace and take your time learning."
Jack- "I like that we get to practice our pronunciation, so if we ever visit a Spanish speaking country, we can feel confident we are saying the words right."
Dominick- "I like that we can work at our own pace."
Sean- "I like that it is interactive and we get to speak the words aloud, instead of just writing the words on paper."
Anthony- "It really is a fun way to learn Spanish and I find it easy to understand."
Selin- "I like using this program so I can work at my own pace."
Nicolette- "We can take our own time to learn which is great, especially if you reach a skill that you are having trouble with."
Pamela- "It helps us learn at our own pace and I feel like I am getting a better understanding of Spanish by learning this way."
Julianna- "I feel like I am learning more Spanish and learning more quickly than in a regular class."
Kenzie- "It is fun learning at my own pace."
Michael- "I like that this program allows you to work at your own speed."
It sounds like our new computer based Spanish program is a hit with our 8th graders!
