St. Raphael's is a hidden treasure. A high quality education with caring teachers. They truly have a desire to see the children excel. We are new to this school this year and we have attended many different schools throughout the country, I can honestly say that this school is one of the best! The extracurricular activities are fantastic. There is music, sports, robotics, chess, just to name a few! If you are looking for a private school in the Pittsburgh area, be sure to check out St. Raphael!

Sr. Judith (the Principal) is a breath of fresh air! St. Raphael is an unknown secret to those looking for a quality education from a private school. Add the great afterschool porgram to it and it is the winningest combination that I can think of.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
