The teachers and staff are excellent. My son is new to the school this year and he thoroughly enjoys the teachers and the friends he has made there. Academic excellence and respect of others are of utmost importance at Saint Philips School.

My brothers and I attended St. Philip for 8 years. At that time mostly Sisters of Charity were the teachers. Even though the Sisters no longer teach in the school, the quality of education has continued.

It is extremely important to me that both my children attend St. Philips School. The entire staff is extremely patient and kind, but more importantly to me, they all work together to ensure that my children know that in order to succeed in life there are many values to have. Grades of course are extremely important when it comes to the success of a child, but St. Philips also teaches Kindness, and that each child is responsible to show everyone about the love that Christ shows all of us.. They all work together to ensure that not only the kids get very good grades, but that they will grow into kind responsible adults as well. I love St. Philips school, and i'm very grateful to everyone there.

Great school if your child is gifted. If your child has learning difficulties, look somewhere else. Most teachers are great here. Test scores on the standardized tests are VERY important to them. In my opinion, they move through the curriculum too quickly, even if all children are not ready to move on. For us, the administration was not supportive here.

I love the parental involvement in the Saint APhilip School community. Parents and grandparents help serve lunch in the cafeteria, they coach basketball, soccer, volleyball and croos country teams. They help with classsroom parties, they organize speakers and special presentations for the school, they support the youth ministry of the parish at all events, including fund raising for charities. All school functions have a high attendance rate including things such as open house, art shows, family fun nights, the list goes on and on. It is very easy to workin a school environment where the parent community is very supportive!!!!

Comparing private to public education is equal to comparing a ford to a Mercedes. The quality, individual attention, personal growth, and the emphasis placed on morals and values outshine public schools. I have personally experienced the difference between schools and can say that the values make a world of difference. Not only do the children learn to respect and value others they learn to expect the same in return. This attitude I feel helps to build my childs self esteem which is reflected in the high academic scores found at this school. I am very pleased to watch my child grow academically through a spiritual venue.
