School Reviews

pre-k through 8th former Stallion, <3 that school and everything I learned there! No way in heck would my kids goto a public school with low standards and crappy remedial curriculum s! God Bless St.Raphael Church and School! -David J Perez

I highly recommend this school to others. The teachers and the staff are extremely caring and challenge the students more than at a public school. The student''s earn their grades whereas those in public school often are just given the grade. My daughter started pre-kindergarden almost two years ago and has excelled. She start''s school this fall as a first grader and my son will start pre-kindergarden this fall as well. It gives an awesome foundation in faith even if you are not Catholic, we aren''t and she is treated the same. However, there is quite a bit of homework to help kids master individual areas they may struggle in. The teachers offer tutoring after school, and my daughter loves the friends she has made. I couldn''t ask for anything better. They offer sports but it''s generally not until the kids are in fifth grade.
