St. Raphael school really is a caring environment that gives children the gift of knowing and loving God. The students all around the campus are very well mannered and polite which we believe is a reflection of the schools focus on building character. We have two young children there and are looking forward to sending our third.
School excels in the education of faith, character, and literature. It has a small school feel with a great community supporting it. Teacher communication is excellent.
However, it does not do well teaching science or math. There is zero time spent in a science lab and science when taught, is taught from a workbook. Things are a bit still traditional.
Overall, a great school!
if you want a school whose staff and faculty are passionate about teaching and believe whole heartily in a Catholic education. Then look no further, you'll be proud to call St Raphael School your son or daughter's second home for the next 10 years.
We currently have 2 of our children at St RAPHAEL and our oldest attended since preK until she graduated 4 years. Every chance I get I tell other parents to send their children there. It he biggest advantage of having our children at St Raphael is that I am able to leave my children at the school and go to work confident that my children are in a safe and caring environment where they will be taught to excel in any area or endeavor. I have seen my children blossom under the care the teachers provide them. I would not move them from there and try own children both want to stay there until they graduate.
My daughter over the years has been taught so much it's amazing as to what she has learned over the 3 1/2 years while st St. Raphael. Her reading level is phenomenal, her handwriting is better than mine, and has been an A student!
