“Because of the solid foundation and education he received at IHM, my son Anthony’s transition to Salesianum High School has been an easy one. Further, he tested in to a high level of Geometry and Honors Spanish for Freshman year. We are grateful for the superior education he received while at IHM, and more so, the daily reaffirming of his Christian faith that he carries with him through his high school years. We feel fortunate to have been part of such a wonderful community for so many years”…
and
“My son who is a freshman at Salesianum was incredibly well prepared for the academic challenges of high school. I credit that to his years at IHM.”
