It's location in a place of great natural beauty. The dedication of parents, faculty, staff, and Administration. I appreciate the sound all round foundation it gives to the students and the social outreach efforts to assist others in need. It has been a Blue Ribbon award winner twice.

I am a parent of a St. Phil's alum and also a public school teacher. I am so appreciative of the experience my son had at St. Phil's: challenging academics, a nurturing environment, other families who are devoted to their children and school, and an emphasis on developing strong values. When it was time to move on to high school, my son jumped right into honors level classes at a top Providence private school without any difficulty. He was extremely well prepared, excelled in high school, and went on to an Ivy League school. I believe St. Phil's made this success possible. More importantly, he became a better person because of St. Phil's.

The school community is very special with active involvment with students, faculty and family members. A very nurturing leaning environment. Our oldest daughter graduated from there and attended another private high school after St. Philomena's school. She was extremely well prepared academically and socially for the challenges of high school. She has since gone onto college and is acclimating extremely well in her academics and social environment. We owe this to the foundation she learned at St. Philomena's. Our youngest daughter is at St. Phil's now and is flourishing just like her big sister. We can't say enough about both their educations there.

St. Philomena school is a warm and nurturing environment where children feel loved by all the teachers and staff. The level of education and the care of the teachers is fantastic. This is a school where children don't only excel in academics, but also a place where they learn the value of respect, kindness, charity, friendship, and love. We love this school and will be very sad when our daughter reaches 8th grade and it will be our time to move on. Thank you for this opportunity to share:)
