I cannot say enough about the education I recieved from IWHS! The modular schedule really forces you to learn time management skills! Academically I felt really challenged in a positive way and if ever I needed help or clarification on an assignment the teachers always helped and made sure I understood. The school offers Pre- AP and AP classes in the event that the regular curriculum is not challenging enough. IWHS also partners with UIW and offers some college level courses for students to take and begin earning college credits! IWHS also has tow really neat programs to make the students really feel like they belong to a family. The first is the Big Sis/ Lil Sis program where a seasoned Senior student and brand new Freshman student are paired up for the year. My Big sis was amazing! She passed on a lot a insider intel to me and made sure I was doing alright in my transition to the intense world of high school. I loved being a Big sis my senior year and getting little knick knacks for my Lil Sis and helping her find her niche at IWHS. My Lil Sis and I are still really good friends! The second program I found helpful is the Fish Tips program! In this program teams of Sophomore students help guide the freshmen through their first semester of high school. I loved their classes! They answered our questions and made us feel like we could come to them at any time if we didn't know something. I loved the All- Girl environment of IWHS! The focus was truly on studying and extra-curriculars! I think the fact that IWHS student wear uniforms and hardly wear make-up really help to keep the students from becoming obsessed with their outward apparence and the superficial aspects of being a teenager. I loved coming to school everyday at IWHS! Oh and if your daughter likes to sing she MUST look into joining the IWHS Choir. Mary Ann De La Garza directs the choir along with teaching Algebra. She is by far the best teacher I have ever had and being a part of the Choir and Madrigals was the BEST part of high school. Dela (as we call her) helps you be your best in both acadmeics and as a person. Incarnate Word is the best education by far for young women. They truly prepare you for college and ensure that the time spent there will be rewarding and memorable!
St. Gregory the Great Catholic School is an amazing school. The factuly are invested in their student's success and really care about their well being! They have on average 14 years of experience teaching children. The administration and staff from the Principal to the school nurse are caring and professional. Walking into the front office you are almost always greeted with a genuinely warm and welcoming smile! Academically SGS offers a very comprhensive and challenging curriculum. The school offers honors classes for the upper units and tutoring for those student with special acadmeic needs. SGS offers interesting core class options including yoga! SGS is one of the few schools to begin teaching a secondary language (Spanish), and computer science to the pre-kinder classes! Extra-curricular activites are incredibly diverse! Athletically the school has the usual list of sports for both boys and girls organized by a dedicated coaching staff. SGS also offers a wide range of clubs from Drama Club to Irish Dancing! The school truly enriches the students both in and out of the classroom. As a former student of St. Gregory the Great, I can honestly say that some of my best experiences in eduction happened while attending SGS. While I am no longer a student, I remain a parishoner of the St. Gregory Parish and have had the opportunity to watch the school grow and continue to blossom. St. Gregory the Great School is the best choice for a holisitc education that will education your son or daughter both morally and academically!!!
I have studied the Bible for almost 50 years with over 30 of that in the ministry. It was my privilege to be introduced to Ariel Ministries at a prophecy conference in 1979. This was soon after I had left seminary where I had sat under the some of the same professors that Dr. Fruchtenbaum has studied with during his time at Dallas Theological Seminary and later some who had been his professors. Those some of them were critical of his stance on certain areas of prophecy they did not offer a better explanation of the issue. For almost 20 years I met a number of people, both scholars and those in the pews, who were aware of his teaching and they seemed to be mostly skeptical of his offering. In the last ten years there has been a major change in what I have been hearing. I have seen Dr. Fruchtenbaum's writings on many pastor's shelves and his writings quoted in many of the articles that I have read. It has been my privilege to host Dr. Fruchtenbaum in my home and the churches that I have pastored. For the last fourteen years I have served as the Protestant Chaplain at a California State Prison. Arnold has, on three occasions, delivered seminiars on the Word of God to the inmates at the prison. His materials are the most popular of all that they can obtain from the chapel libraries. Of all of the teachers I have been privileged to study under, Arnold has been to one that has opened my understanding of the Bible. I would encourage anyone who is serious aobut their Bible study to contact Ariel on the phone or at www.ariel.org.
