School Notes:

    St. Philip Neri Catholic School is a parish faith community dedicated to fostering the Catholic faith and educating children in a loving , nurturing environment.  A foundation for future academic success is provided through excellence in teaching and learning, in partnership with the family and the parish and school communities.  At. St. Philip Neri, we believe that parents are the primary educators and we embrace our responsibility as co-educators.  We believe all children are a sacred and shared trust.  we believe that each child is a gift of God who must be treated with dignity, respect and care. Based on these beliefs, we embrace the following goals:
    • To integrate Gospel values and teachings into all areas of the curriculum, thus enabling students to make solid moral choices, to grow in faith, and to share this faith with others.
    • To provide academic excellence through a curriculum that espouses 21st century literacies:  the ability to create, collaborate, cooperate, and collectively and ethically act.
    • To foster life-long learners who possess the knowledge, problem-solving skills and competencies to address multi-dimensonal challenges inherent with a technological and global society.
    • To provide an environment which enables students to appreciate and embrace creativity and beauty in life within and around them as expressed in various disciplines, art forms and nature.
    • To instill in our students the ability and determination to develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, morally and socially, growing in their commitment to justice and dedicaton to service making our Church, world, and one another better by their presence.

School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - I have to say. ...I highly recommend this school for you children. The teachers are wonderful and very helpful, the principal used to be a teacher at the school, so she understands the problems that teachers may have. This school reminds me of an "old school" as far as faith goes. I love that!!!!! My son is in several extracurricular activites. He has joined hiking club, and school store, and is looking forward to the musical. - Posted by Parent
