With the changes in Principal and teachers in the middle school, I feel it has lost much of the appeal. The new math teacher, Mr. Bolden, is strong, and my daughter is doing much better than before in Math. Overall, she feels demoralized by the principal, who has made a point of setting rules to make school less enjoyable.

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
The school hired a social worker this year, so I think they are trying to work in this area.


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
Although, I don't have direct experience with this, there do not seem to be many students with learning differences. Classes are large, not allowing for much attention to be paid to learning differences.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
The new principal seems to be focused on rules to make everything harder on the children. Too much focus on what new rules he can put in to place to make children unhappy.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
There is much intolerance and not much compassion happening here.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
The teachers force many group homework assignments without giving class time to accomplish. It is almost impossible to get kids together with such different schedules of after school activities. Parents end up doing the projects for the kids, including videos, building things, etc.

Our family loves this school. Like any school, there are things that can be improved, but the parent community is very engaged and the new principal is great. Teachers are really wonderful - very personally attentive to each kid. A really nice thing is that lots of sports teams are organized for each class beginning in K which makes participating in sports very easy and also contributes to a positive school spirit.

I've been at St. Philip for 5 years now and highly recommend it. Without a doubt, we had a tough year last year when our principal unexpectedly passed away. But this year, we've seen a remarkable reset due to a new principal who is very dedicated to the school, a new priest who is very focused on the church and leaves the school to its administration, and beloved teachers who have given the school stability to build from. Above all, the parent community is the real reason I love the school most. I never thought it would matter that much when I was first looking at schools, but it impacts everything about our school experience and has such a positive effect on my children's overall education.


Handles bullying effectively: Neutral


- a
The school has just put a new social/emotional program into place and I'm really looking forward to it. Only marking this as neutral because I haven't heard yet how it's working out.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
Honesty and Integrity start from the top. When the staff does not trust who they work for, it is hard in a work environment. Staff members have expressed they deeply miss Remy Everett running the school.
