    The commitment from the teachers and staff at Holy Angels School is noticed and I really appreciate it.

    I attended Holy Angels School in Colma all 9 years from Kindergarten to the 8th grade. Attending this school has definitely shaped the person I am today. While attending high school I thought about how thankful I was to have attended HA for my education. Majority of the people from my 8th grade class went to the same high school & we were all in honors or Advanced Placement classes. HA prepared us for the coursework we encountered in high school. I am also still very close friends with my friends from HA. We don't call each other friends but instead a family. I also stay in touch with the teachers at HA because they become your life-long mentors.

    I would highly recommend this school. I first brought my 1st child here in 1997. The experience I had was so worthwhile especially since I was struggling as a single parent at the time. I came back again years later with my youngest child because of the staff and the program at Holy Angels. From there teachers Admin Staff to all its employees. Just a great school all around.

    I would recommend this school for a variety of reasons. I love the way the entire school makes a family feel as part of a community (a family). Many people know each other the children all greet you in the hallway everyone is friendly there is such a spiritual atmosphere here that is very refreshing and heartwarming to see and feel. Also I very much like the structure of how things happen the technology and most of all I love the structure that the classroom gives to the children. I have less than a year experience here and only one teacher however this has been the best experience for my children and myself. I also appreciate the extracurricular activities offered the people that give the classes (dance pe spanish etc.) really care about the children and their progress. I would highly recommend this school.

    This is a school that treats your child and your family like their own with the right amount of discipline understanding compassion and true fellowship to the catholic belief. This school also thrives on the importance of well presented education and the safety of our children which is a huge plus. This school has a strong sense of bringing the community and our families together. This school helped me raise my first daugter and now that I had one more they are doing it again!! I love Holy Angels School!

    I will recommend them to enroll their children at Holy Angels School because of the excellent academic curriculum and their Catholic values that my children acquired during their 9 years at the school.

    I would tell my friends that I made the right choice in sending my children to Holy Angels School. As a parent it is essential to show my kids stability and find the right school so not to transfer to another school after finding you made the wrong choice because the teacher upsets you or your kids are not safe. HA will love and support you and your children. The principal & teachers are true mentors and nurture that bond and truly partners with parents to success. Even teacher's aides day care assistant and the janitor are like family. You don't feel alone with HA School and instead you gain a family. The curriculum at HA is advanced and I'm saying this from my experiences with my daughter who graduated from HA and just started highschool if your kids graduate from HA your kids transition to high school will be easy. At HA my kids developed their talents I didn't even know they have thanks to HA. I would tell my friends that I love Holy Angels School and you too will love HA. Come and join our family at HA!
