School Reviews

St. Rita''s is a wonderful school which I highly recommend to any family looking for a well-rounded education. Academics is highly valued and religious themes are woven throughout the classes and extracurricular activities each and every day, which makes God a consistent presence and force in my child''s life. The anti-bullying program and policies teach every student how to be respectful to others and the importance of being a role-model. I can not put a ''value'' on the positive environment that this encourages throughout the school - as my son (and the other children) learn the importance of valuing Jesus, Others, and Yourself (JOY). My son is in a safe, fun, encouraging, and loving environment everyday - a parent could not wish for more for their children.
