Map of St Rita School address.

My children attended this school for a total of 5 years. Academically, they are good, not great. The academic instruction is adequate and my kids were all on level with students at their new school. As a small, private school, St. Rita is not able to provide programs for students who may need extra services like speech therapy, gifted programs, behaviour programs, etc. St Rita is a small school and can be cliquish. For the area, though, it's definitely an option to consider.

Great school. Works with parents to improve the students study skills.

St. Rita is a school that continues to grow and improve. The parental level of involvement is very high and the academic program challenging. The addition of a new reading program and a resource program for math seem to be helping students who need extra help to reach their potential. A renewed focus on the arts is happening and that's exciting--especially for kids who enjoy music and art. The recent addition of gates around the perimeter of the school gives parents an added sense of security. The students at school seem happy and feel like St. Rita is like a 'second home.' St. Rita has gone through growing pains but the school has definitely improved in the last few years. I've been a school parent for over 10 years and see the difference!

Both of my children graduated from St. Rita - most recently my daughter in 2004. My son did very well in High School. My daughter is doing well in her first year of High school. Both were well prepared academically. Disipline was reinforced in such a manner that both had a good idea of what it would take to succeed in high school. The children's spirital growth was fostered. The only thing I would have changed is the foreign language requirement or lack of this requirement.

It's a great school. Parental involvement and family activities are outstanding. Good academic standards and extracurricular activities. A real community of learning.
