I went to school here from Kindergarten to 8th grade. I now am in grad school for a teaching program. I know all of the teachers at St. Raphael School and I still try to be involved when I can. I believe that this school does a great job at preparing students for high school and college. The academics ...  Read more

I love St. Raphaels School! I truly believe that St. Raphaels school is amazing! I read some of the other parent reviews and l feel that the academics are far better than public school, the staff is caring, concerned, and treat each child as an individual. The teachers are fabulous and wonderful ...  Read more

Our children attended St. Raphael after moving to the area. They attended Catholic school their entire academic careers prior to enrollment at St. Raphael. After their first year we pulled them from the school and enrolled them elsewhere. We found that the academics were not competitive with the ...  Read more

Interesting reviews. I am a parent and I am very happy all around. As to the parent who rated the academics low, I would disagree. I would suggest that parent talk with high school teacher as I have. They will find that St. Raphael students, in general, are among the best prepared for studies at the ...  Read more

My daughter transferred in after two years at another private school---and I am thrilled with all aspects (except gym--but I can live with that). Financially stable, fiscally sane, great parents, fabulous kids, warm environment, organized and consistent leadership, and academically challenging without ...  Read more

The principal is out of touch with today's education opportunities. Class curriculum is not on par with public schools in the area and the junior high courses are lacking. The teachers are 'tired' and there are very few new ideas. If you are looking for a school with strong parent involvement, strong ...  Read more

Both of my children go to St, Raphael's School, since Preschool! One of my daughter's is severely learning disabled, but as most LD children, she is very intelligent. Instead of turning us away, St. Raphael's has embrassed our family, challenged her both in the classroom as well as through their OASIS ...  Read more

Okay school nice kids and principal, but I was not impressed with their kindergarten program. My child was extremely behind when I transferred out. Most kids her age already knew how to read, and he did not. This caused him a lot of stress and heart ache.
