SPN-this school does not represent what it should, very little religious conviction. They feel entitled to the cost instead of earning it. Any slight problem with a student and it's like a permanent condemnation and will never admit to doing anything wrong, the problem is always placed on the family or student. Also had uncertified teachers for 1/2 year. The staff is quick to judge and punish without staff witness and on hearsay. The online grade site was a disaster. There are some good teachers but a few are in the wrong trade, should not be in education. This school does not represent what a Catholic school should, glad to be gone.

This is a sad example of a catholic school lacking organization. The teachers do not know how to teach or discipline their students. They focus on issues of no importance and neglect to address the actual problems of their school.

All four of my children were educated at SPN. One year when we moved further out I put my two oldest children in the Choctaw schools to save time and money. Not worth the time or money. Oklahoma Public schools were about a year behind SPN. My daughter had already learned in 3rd grade what they were teaching in 4th grade in Choctaw. The Computer lab is top notch and my 10 year-old can produce a power point presentation that would compete with most adults. All my children have a definite sense of right and wrong and positive work ethic. If you fail or succeed it is all on yourself. I am happy with this school and it's Christian teachings.

Never having been in a Catholic school I must Amit I excepted a cold environment . Yes I know to much tv I'm sure! I found a disciplined, loving school with a close family like connection. I was there assisting in school photos, this being a stressful and caodic time for students and teachers I thought it was a great testament to the school. I would also like I add the students were all polite and I had no problems getting them to cooperate.

This was our 2nd year at SPN and I don't think we will be returning. I am very dissappointed at the lack of discipline the children receive and I have found out through other parents that if you complain they will take it out on the child. I don't think this school be open many more years.

My children have been attending SPN for 4 years now. We love it. Their preschool program (K3 & K4) is the best! They learn so much in that time and build on that foundation during the rest of their school years. My husband and I make a lot of sacrifices for our children to receive a good education and we could not have found a better school for this. I am very happy that I am such a big part of their education. I love being able to volunteer, talk to teachers/principal as needed and be involved in the decisions made for the school.

I was really dissappointed in SPN. My son is in K4 and his teacher complains to us on a daily basis on how hard her job is, asking us things like "is it Friday yet". Anytime he mIssbehaves in the slightest, the school is calling us and asking if we can come up and talk to him. I feel he would listen to them more if they disciplined him instead of immediately having us talk to him. The admin. told us average class size would be about 15.. There are 26 in his class and on more than one occcasion we have walked in on the teacher just yelling at the kids.

I love St Philip Neri School because not only do the children get the best education ever, everyone at the school is loving and caring always looking out for the best interests of your child. I never worry at all while I am working because I know he is safe and happy.

I think prayer is important to us all. I'm glad morning prayer before class is very important. Another reason is the uniform policy. The policy minimizes the stress many public school students face in trying to be the 'best dressed' Everyone is equal in that respect. Also, the small class size means teachers are able to be more helpful to those students who may be having difficulties.

I support Catholic education. Those teachers are dedicated and hard working and put a lot of heart into their teaching. They not only get a good educational foundation, but a foundation in the Faith. They have the best principal and a wonderful staff. God bless Catholic schools and God bless St. Philip Neri Catholic School.

It is a small enough school to enable individualized attention to each student. Being a Catholic school, students are taught about God and the Bible. The children learn to live their lives as Christians from an early age at the same time they are receiving an excellent education.

Both of my children have attended St Philip Neri School since 2000. All the teachers and faculties were wonderful. They have a strong bond between with my kids. My kids never have any bad things to say about any of the teachers or faculties. This year, my son wanted to play tennis competetively and St. Philip Neri School does not have tennis program. So we decided to enrolled to a nearby school. Saying good bye to the teachers were hard for us and the kids. We will keep them all in our prayers and I would like to take this opprotunity to thanks all the teachers and faculties that have help and teaches my kids to be the best Christian as they can be. God Bless Vinh Pham

St. Philip Neri is the best private school choice for a family not wanting the Mid-Del public schools. They stress academics and nurture the child as a whole person; moral values can be educated much better in a private school setting. Both of my children are excelling at St. Philip Neri. I can't say enough wonderful things about the pre-K3 class! The only real disappointment I have is in the school administration. The principal does not feel the need to be a warm and caring person, or to get to know the families on a personal level, other than to request more fundraising monies. There is a sense of distance between the reality of the classroom and the principal's involvement. I believe that what starts at the top spreads down to staff. I hope that does not eventually happen, though, because the teachers are great.

My son is in a 3K program. While he was already advanced academically, he has flourished in classes for P.E., Spanish, Music, Computer, and has also been taught basic skills a preschooler needs to feel confident in himself - number one that he is wonderfully made by God!

Both of my children have attended St. Philip Neri school since they were 4. My children are now in 5th and 7th grade. It as been a very positive experience for them both. The teachers are wonderful teachers and very loving. The children enjoy a multitude of sports as well as many different clubs. I feel that the parents are very involved with the school.I feel that the children benifit from the parent teacher cooperation. I love this school and plan on putting my two year old twin boys in as soon as they are old enough.
