I am ABSOLUTELY THRILLED with this school. I was a bit hesitant to invest the tuition money as it required a lot of changes in our families habits to attend Resurrection, but we did it and it is so worth the sacrafices! My kids are thriving in this school! The school has excellent leadership, caring and challenging faculty, and offers many extracarricular activities from scouting to the arts to athletics! I have relatives with children in suburban public schools which are supposed to be so much better but I don't see a difference, if anything my children are ahead! Now that my children are out of the public school system, I would not even think about going back! Thanks Resso for doing what you do best, educating children!
I am a very pleased parent with Resurrection of our Lord School. I could not disagree more with the comment further down which states that there are few teachers who care and God forbid your child needs extra help. I have three students in the school. One needs extra help, and I didn't even have to seek it out, the school contacted me about the extra services that could be offered, at no extra expense. Now my child is thriving and the school has has offered me free services through the summer, to keep her on track. This doesn't sound like an uncaring environment to me. This school aslo exceeds the national average with respect to standardized testing, so religion is not all that you are paying for, it is just an additional benefit to attending a Catholic School. Of course if you don't want to pay, public and charter schools are always another option, but the fact that the neighborhood teachers, who teach in the local public and charter schools, send their OWN children to Resurrection, schould be a pretty good indicator that this is a quality school!
I could not be more pleased with Resurrection of Our Lord School. I have students in the school now, and two who have graduated. I thought my older two students were very average, until they began testing for scholarships and taking entrance exams to private Catholic schools. To my surprise they were accepted at all of the private college prep schools that they applied to, and were awarded numerous scholarship opportunities to various Private and Archdiocesan High Schools. Simply put an average student at Resurrection will excel in any high school cirriculum, as they are well prepared for the challenge. My 2 younger students are also doing well and seem achieve above average scores in their Terranovas year to year, which is a positive reflection on how well the school educates the students. If paying tuition is holding you back from making the investment into a Catholic education, let me be the first to tell you that it is well worth the money! Of course there are sacrafices to be made in order to afford this, but what better investment can a parent make than an investment in their child's future. If you chose Resurrection you will not be disappointed!
I had the opportunity to move several months ago and chose not to so that my children could continue to go to the school that they and I all love, Resurrection of Our Lord! The school offers an excellent and challenging cirriculum and abundant extracarricular activities. There is something for everyone here. If you are in the Rhawnhurst area and looking to be a part of something special, Resurrection School and Parish is your answer! Resurrection is a thrivingschool , thanks to the continous support of the school families and parishoners! If you are considering Resurrection for your child, I would highly recommend setting up a tour and talking to the staff. I don't think you will have any doubt in your mind that your child will recieve a quality education at Resurrection of Our Lord!
My oldest attended Resso and graduated from Judge. Not sure what I paid for ? My two youngest attend now - I am in the process of investigating Charter schools because I am not certain I want to put more money into this school. Over the years my experience is that there are a few teachers that are caring, dedicated and knowledgable and then there are those that for some reason the school just keeps around. I am not really certain what my children are getting out of this school except the religion. In my opinion, unless your children are your average kid then there is nothing a catholic school can offer. If the child is gifted - there are few classes provided in later yeras and god forbid your child needs extra care.....
There are too many children in each class and I can only see the problem getting worse. I think the teachers are very dedicated to the students, but really how many children could they really handle? Also, I wish more parents could become more involved in the actives at school. Yes, I know we all work!
I am a sixth grade student, I love this school, the parishioners are great the teachers are nice, and we recently got a new vice principle, with our old vice principle as our new principle.
I am not as happy as the others who have posted. My daughter is in fourth grade and doing very well, but a lot of that is due to me tutoring her myself. I have not been thrilled with her teachers over the years, her kindergarten teacher was great, but after that, eh.
This school is wonderful. My son is currently a thrid grader in this school and is doing great. All the teacher and faculity are so professional and helpful. I stay in this area just to send my son to resurrection. Would highly recommend this school to anyone!
This school is one of the best. The schools staff is very great. The kids love the school!
Awesome leadership and staff. Parish is great overall. They took us in and made us feel like family. Learning is #1 and activities are abundant.
