We could not have said it better…  

 

Created by a newly enrolled first grader soon after his school year began:



 

We are honored you are considering Immaculate Heart of Mary School for your student.  If you have any questions about our school or parish please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions Office ( DebbiH@ihomschool.org  ) or any member of the staff.

Immaculate Heart of Mary School has proven to be a place for Christian education and academic excellence since 1955.  The parents and staff are very proud of our Blue Ribbon school and we appreciate the opportunity to present our programs to the public.  Immaculate Heart of Mary students and parents are our best ambassadors so please speak to them about the environment at “IHM.”

Click on the 'We are IHM' tab above for an informative booklet which covers many areas that interest new families.  Some fast facts about our Elementary School (grades K-8):

  • IHM has been a Blue Ribbon School since 2004.  In that year 289 schools nationwide received this honor, 17 in Ohio, and 2 in Cincinnati.  This award acknowledges our school’s efforts for academic excellence and recognizes the commitment of faculty and staff toward achieving that excellence. IHM became the first school in the Archdiocese to earn the Blue Ribbon School Award.  This updated and revised award mandated that schools not only showcase their achievements, as required with the previous Blue Ribbon Award, but prove that their best practices resulted in increased student achievement through test data.  Since 2004, several other schools in the Archdiocese have earned this award, and we join in saluting the commitment to excellence shared by these outstanding Catholic schools.
  • IHM School was named a National Catholic School for Tomorrow twice:  
  •        Awarded in 2010 - Category:  Innovation in Curriculum and Instruction
  •       Awarded in 2013 - Category:  Stewardship and Social Justice
  • Other school awards are listed in the We are IHM booklet.
