My son really likes the school, but as a parent I have an issue. Every time I try to contact the financial department, they never call me back.

We are in our third year at SPN. Our daughter started in P3 and is now in kindergarten. The teachers are wonderful and our daughter loves to go to school. She was reading and writing in PK4 and is now writing sentences in kindergarten. She has been very prepared for each grade. We very pleased with the school!

My children are in 5th and 7th grade at SPN and have been attending since preschool. Academically, my chidren have excelled. Their teachers have always been caring and considerate and my children feel very comfortable and safe at school. This school does a great job preparing the kids for high school.

We have 2 children in the Pre-K program and are very happy with their progress. Our oldest is in PK4 presently and has really excelled in her learning. She starterd at St. Philip in PK2. Our youngest is in PK2 and has a really great vocabulary and talks so much more. I would have never been able to give our children a great base for their education at home. St. Philip offers an excellent early education program.

This school is wonderful. We have been through two years in the PK programs and find it to be excellent. All of the teachers are very warm, compassionate people that are great with the young children. There is tons of parent involvement which is so important. We are very happy with the school.

I would rate this school as excellent. As a former parent and teacher, I feel that what is important in a school is curriculum and order and stability. The school is on the cutting edge of new technology and educational practices. In addition, security measures have been implemented to keep all students and faculty/staff safe. I have always had access to teachers and administration in a timely fashion. This site is a good means for prospective parents who may not be familiar with the school to learn more about it; however, I am concerned that this could become a forum for a few disgruntled parents to vent their frustration, which could in turn affect the school's overall rating unfairly.

This school is only so so. My daughter has been attending since PK3 and we have had trouble with the teachers paying attention to the students. The principle is always away on trips and vacation. For the amount of money spent on this school you would be better off somewhere else.

My son started at St. Philip Neri School in their 3 year old program. He is currently in kindergarten. I have been very pleased with SPN. I was amazed at what my son learned in the PK-3 and PK-4 programs as I expected it to be more like a 'glorified' nursery school! The faculty has been great so far! My son's teachers have been thoughtful, caring and wonderful! SPN offers many opportunities for parents to be involved in their children's education, as well. I am very happy with St. Philip Neri School and would recommend it highly!

Our children like this school, especially because of the multitude of after school activities available. They also have a nice tutoring course available if needed. We have found that all but a handful of teachers are very caring, intelligent, and helpful. This is a very parentally involved school, more than I personally have ever seen. I would like to see an art program implemented. I find that to be one of the only things lacking. I would also say that one downfall, in my opinion, is that there seems to be little attention paid to parents thoughts on many issues. Decisions, especially involving large money issues, should involve parents feelings. After all, we are the ones who pay.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
