This is a great school! Small class sizes, personal relationships, dedicated teachers, and wonderful family community. The Pre K program is an amazing way to start your child in a loving and nurturing environment.
Two of my children attended Saints Philip and James School. In addition to strong academics, the wonderful, consistent focus on values made all the difference in my children's education. They learned to be good human beings who recognize the value of kindness, manners, and generosity. The wide range of extracurricular, enrichment, and athletic activities also helped my children explore their interests. Teachers get to know and recognize the potential and strengths of every student.
Great community. Both of my children graduated from SSPJ and were well prepared for high school as a result.
This is a wonderful school to work at and a great parish to be a member of. The leadership is strong and caring and keeps the school competitive and strong in academics as well as in faith. I recommend this parish school to anyone seeking to belong to a caring community with an excellent education for their children.
We have three sons and two attended SSPJ. We found Ss. Philip and James to be a school offering a wonderful education for our sons. We found the "at home" feel we had missed in the public school system. The educators at Ss. Philip and James were approachable and accommodating to work with our children as their learning needs changed and evolved.
