St. Philip Lutheran School is the perfect school for our daughter. Prior to attending St. Philip, my daughter attended a public school where she was bullied at an early age of 5 (Kindergarten). We decided to move her and we''re glad to have found St. Philip. It has a nurturing environment and it helped my daughter regain her self-esteem. She''s been attending St. Philip for 2 years now since 1st grade and she''s made a lot of good friends. She enjoys going to school everyday. The principal, teachers, and staff are dedicated. Due to its small size, the teachers are able to focus on the needs of each student. Students who are more advanced are given extra challenges, while students who need more help are given the attention they need. I''m really impressed with their curriculum (e.g. quarterly book reports starting in 1st grade; challenging math problems that make them analytical thinkers; creative and persuasive writing in 2nd grade). I highly recommend this school. My daughter once told me, "Mommy, I love my school. Thank you for bringing me to St Philip." That''s how I know that this is the perfect place for my daughter.
