This school is definitely a throwback in time with regard to academic rigor and some more old school types of teaching, but I find nothing wrong with old school as public schools are lacking so much. For example, when do public school students learn to punctuate sentences? Maybe never if it's not on a standardized test. I agree with some postings here that mention a lack of leadership at the school; however, if parents are going to complain about a school, they need to spellcheck their reviews. I personally wouldn't be convinced by strong claims riddled with typos. What the school has going for it are loving teachers and a strong sense of community. I am happy to have my child here. I feel lucky and blessed to drop her off in the morning.

I am a much older sibling of a student that went to San Felipe de Neri. He thrived at this school and continues to thrive in High School. He had amazing teachers that guided him to becoming a well-rounded teen. They challenged him and gave him the tools he needs to be successful. They were helpful and were always there to mentor or provide tutoring if he struggled. The office staff is attentive and helpful. All staff knows each child by name, because they truly care about them. The new principal is always present and there if you have questions or concerns. This school has strong family and Catholic values that are passed on through generations. I have a son who will be an upcoming Pre-K student and I cannot wait for him to go to a school where he and his education are truly cared about. Here I know he will be challenged and given a strong Catholic foundation so may succeed in his future.

My children went to this school for two and a half years. They were diagnosed with Dyslexia. The school promised to work on some accommodation to make the boys successful. It never happen. It was so hard to communicate with the teachers who have an attitude of "My way or the highways" They told me they have rigor in their classes. I observed the class... Can t find it... They are good paper pushers. Drilling them perfect! Higher type of learning. None...They expect my dyslexic children to memorize 20 to 30 vocabularies a week? Memorize facts.... who does that? Old schools. Now, they were sending me bill for withdrawal fee? My children were not serviced... they were traumatize with the experience. They want more money... I want my money back! I am filing a complaint so that this school will learn its lesson. I am so glad I move them to public. Where is their Catholic teaching there? Wanting more money even if they provide disservice to this particular students? I know they are hurting for money because a lot of students withdrew from the school but they should just do what is right as a follower of Christ! They have a good bookish Catholic teaching.Please teach what you preach!

This school lacks leadership, discipline, and is behind academically. My child was not challenged by the in-class lessons or by the homework. My child is advanced, however nothing was done to challenge her. When I contacted the administration regarding my concerns the response received was, if my child is below average then this was not the school for our family. I was stunned by the response since it had nothing to do with my concerns or with child s capabilities. The school does not have a nurse. Extracurricular activity is limited. My child participated in P.E., Computer Lab, and Library Lab once a week. Spanish is not taught to younger children. Art and Music is offered once a week for one third of the year. The afterschool program is not structured. The employees who are in charge of the program do not activity engage the students in constructive activities. Students are discouraged from doing homework and do not receive assistance or encouragement when taking it upon themselves to complete their assignments. The location of the school is great, and children are taken on filed trips. Everything else is less then desirable. My child will not be returning this upcoming year.

Our family loves this school. Our children attend San Felipe and their cousin's, public. This school is without a doubt at least 2 years above public. Our kids have learned to be better catholics, students and members of a community. Our only dislike, is the school seeks a state funded grant annually for the Pre-k program. The grant monies do not benefit the school at all, and tend to hinder the teacher's ablity to instruct as they see fit. This grant gives the state more power to dictate our ciriculum which is not up to the school's standard. I would rather just pay the full tuition and have our kids excel more.

This school is great on communication, but lacks on leadership. All of the teachers are sweet and well- educated.

This school has very many assets one being their involvement with the community and the sense of family that is always present there. The academics have been very good and compared to the public schools I do believe they are a cut above. The principal is good but is very fair and does not play favoritess so I do think that is why the other people have said their comments that they have here. I attedned this school as a child and find the same values and community that was there when I attended. Scholastically I believe a lot has to do with your own child and their abilities.

This school will continue to disapoint children and parents if new leadership doesn't occur. This Principle prides herself on the school running in the black year after year but what we found out is our child was the one running in the red. People say that all catholic schools are the same but they are not. My child left this school and was behind grade level. We went to a different catholic school in the area and is now doing very well. The credit belongs to the new school and getting our child out of this school.

This school needs a new leader(Principle) one with heart & better at communicateing to parents. It's sad to see such a great school lose so many good parents and teachers. I hope this school can recover from the mess it's in right now.
