Dear Friends and Visitors:
Welcome to the IHM website!
Children in the East Hollywood area of Los Angeles have enjoyed the opportunity to be students at Immaculate Heart of Mary School for the past 89 years.
Through instruction in Religion and daily school living our students learn about the tenets of the Catholic faith and the values so much a part of Christian living. Students are encouraged to be of service to others, to those who are so much less fortunate than we are, to recognize that the world is larger than they are, and that they have a responsibility to care for our planet and each other.
We offer a challenging academic curriculum in which students are encouraged to give the best they have to offer to their learning. Teachers provide assistance to those who need additional help and some teachers are available to tutor after school for those who wish or have need.
Students can participate in Student Government, CYO sports, and intramural sports. Choir, as well as lessons in piano, violin, voice and guitar, are offered by professional musicians for those who wish. The lessons are on site.
The IHM Children’s Choir competed at the Seventh World Choir Games in Cincinnati, Ohio in July of 2012. The World Choir Games, which was formerly known as the Choir Olympics, is the largest choir competition in the world and it was the first time that the United States hosted this event. In April 2012 issue of St. Anthony Messenger, the widely circulated national magazine featured the IHM Children’s Choir on its front cover and centerfold. The accompanying article highlighted them as the “only U.S. Catholic elementary school that will compete in this summer’s World Choir Games.” The students won two silver medals for the categories of Young Children's Choirs and Music of Religions.
There is truly only one reason for a school and that is the children. It is our pleasure to serve the children and families of IHM, and trust that we will continue to serve children for years to come.
Ms. Allyson Alberto
