This is the best school I have EVER attended. I came here in the Upper School and am now an eighth grader. When I first came to SPA, it was a social and academic adjustment. I had trouble making friends. However, I have grown so much. I have many friends now. I have become more outgoing due to the great ...  Read more

All my children are enrolled in the school and I am extremely satisfied with the attention they receive by their teachers and the high quality of academic rigor. The food program is incredible as it is healthier and more delicious than the food I prepare at home sometimes. Parents are expected to be ...  Read more

This school is outstanding. I've never seen anything like it, they adapt each lesson for different styles of learning and incorporate technology into the classroom in innovative ways. There is such a nice balance of technology and caring for the environment, these kids are going to be very well balanced!!!

This school is terrible. I hate it. I have been in this school for four years and I absolutely hate it along with my fellow eighth graders.

Small class size, the teachers and adminstrators love their students, the education is that of a high cost independent school, made available to students in newark. Our students graduate and go onto the top independent and boarding schools in the country, and on to the top colleges and universities.

The St. Philips' facilities are excellent, the core faculty generally appears to be good and caring, my child appears to be learning the 3 R's but it has not been a cake walk. If your child has a learning difference they don't appear to know how to deal with it, even if its a very smart child. The ...  Read more
