  • The only other review is laughable. Get off your butt and be a parent. Are you kidding? Your child is exposed to swearing?? Try sending them to a true catholic high school. Swearing???? Really? Ha ha. If it were not for IJP, I wouldn't be the person I became- personally and professionally. Get your children out of their bubble. I graduated-successfully- from an all boys catholic high school after Infant Jesus, and if it weren't for the true experience of insight and education I received at IJP , I never would have survived. Thank you Infant Jesus of Prague!!! Two apple lady- go back to your own bubble and wake up!!

  • IJP is seriously in need of leadership! It boosts a nice philosophy: "The mission of Infant Jesus of Prague School is to provide avenues through which students are able to hear the word of Christ, heed His message, and live the gospels in an environment that stresses quality education, positive self image, and respect for others," -- but this is a crock! My daughter has been bullied and physically assaulted on two occasions over the past two years and the best the principal/administrators can do is hand out a detention of "no recess," the same punishment a student gets for forgetting their belt with their uniform! The curriculum is sub par at best and most of the teachers are curt and uncooperative. My daughter reports swearing from the lunch room attendants while serving lunch... barely any supervision at recess; physical fighting at recess; very strong sexual comments and references by the students; very foul swearing and if that wasn't bad enough, the class room sizes are 35+ with no teacher's aid... we've been at Infant Jesus of Prague for two years and we are counting the days until the year is over!
