15 Parent Reviews for Resurrection Of Our Lord School
The school is really going down hill. I have had my children in the school for almost 8 years & I must say this school year has been by far the worst. The teachers are not like they use to be or should I say "they put on a nice front to ones face". I myself do not recommend putting your child/children

I've just started high school, and I really wasn't too nervous about it. I'm really well prepared, thanks to Resurrection. I attended this school from kindergarten to eighth grade, and I loved all 9 years. I met my best friends there, and made so many memories. I'll never forget this school, and I owe

I went to Resurrection for eight long, long years. And I can't tell you that I've missed any place more since I graduated in June. I walked those halls with my head held not-so high. I was weird, and socially awkward. But the teachers were kind, the students were friendly, and everything about my grade

We absolutely love this school. Our children are all very different, but Resurrection has found a way to bring out the best in each of them. This school was recently merged with Our Lady of Ransom, and we are a family who came to Resurrection after OLOR closed. We were very uneasy about having to
... Read more move our kids to a new school and take them away from what they were used to, but once we made the transition, we got ourselves & our children involved in the many activities offered outside of school. We were immediately welcomed and treated like family from day 1. I have nothing negative to say about this school. We have all adjusted well. If I ever have to stop there during the day while the staff is there, I am always welcomed with a smile and warm greeting. Picking a school for your child can be very difficult. Everyone offers the same curriculum as mandated by state law. You have to look for the extras. Are the children challenged, respected & taught to respect others, cared for, are they encouraged to do their best.Where Resurrection is concerned the answer is YES to all. The tuition is worth the investment. Many of the students receive generous scholarships to HS as well! Read less

Resurrection of Our Lord, located in Northeast Philadelphia is a great school. My daughter graduated from there last year.and my son is currently in fourth grade. The school has an outstanding principal, Mrs. Stulz, who cares about each and every one of her students. She is supported by an excellent

She is a remarkable woman who knows each and every student in the school by name and loves them all. My daughter and all of her friends were able to earn scholarships and accommodations upon graduation. This is ultimately because of the wonderful education they have received. I also cannot say enough about Mr. Bendetti, the 8th grade teacher, who not only gets every lesson across with accuracy but is also able to relate to the students and capture their attention. Mrs. Murphy is the 9th grade history teacher and the students come away learning not only history but responsibility. There are many other fantastic teachers including but not limited to: Ms. Devlin, Mr. Braunstein, Mrs. McCooey, Ms. Crich, and Ms. Pfiel. Read less

I am ABSOLUTELY THRILLED with this school. I was a bit hesitant to invest the tuition money as it required a lot of changes in our families habits to attend Resurrection, but we did it and it is so worth the sacrafices! My kids are thriving in this school! The school has excellent leadership, caring

I have relatives with children in suburban public schools which are supposed to be so much better but I don't see a difference, if anything my children are ahead! Now that my children are out of the public school system, I would not even think about going back! Thanks Resso for doing what you do best, educating children! Read less

I could not be more pleased with Resurrection of Our Lord School. I have students in the school now, and two who have graduated. I thought my older two students were very average, until they began testing for scholarships and taking entrance exams to private Catholic schools. To my surprise they were

Simply put an average student at Resurrection will excel in any high school cirriculum, as they are well prepared for the challenge. My 2 younger students are also doing well and seem achieve above average scores in their Terranovas year to year, which is a positive reflection on how well the school educates the students. If paying tuition is holding you back from making the investment into a Catholic education, let me be the first to tell you that it is well worth the money! Of course there are sacrafices to be made in order to afford this, but what better investment can a parent make than an investment in their child's future. If you chose Resurrection you will not be disappointed! Read less

My oldest attended Resso and graduated from Judge. Not sure what I paid for ? My two youngest attend now - I am in the process of investigating Charter schools because I am not certain I want to put more money into this school. Over the years my experience is that there are a few teachers that are caring,

I am not really certain what my children are getting out of this school except the religion. In my opinion, unless your children are your average kid then there is nothing a catholic school can offer. If the child is gifted - there are few classes provided in later yeras and god forbid your child needs extra care..... Read less

There are too many children in each class and I can only see the problem getting worse. I think the teachers are very dedicated to the students, but really how many children could they really handle? Also, I wish more parents could become more involved in the actives at school. Yes, I know we all
