    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 can't begin to tell you how much St. Philip has impacted our lives. The teachers' caring attitude and support has transformed our son from a shy disorganized boy into a bright confident responsible and caring young citizen. The teachers are wonderful and the academic program matches no other.
