School Reviews

My daughter started at St Philip when she was two. Eight years later I'm still thrilled with the education she receives. Learning should be joyful, and St Philip definitely makes this happen. The teachers emphasize meaningful, exciting learning. This year she went to a week-long overnight outdoor education camp. Her class has ventured to a local park to explore simple machines in action on the playground. The whole school makes regular treks to the nearby nature center to explore anything from animal life to art in nature. These are the learning experiences she'll remember for the rest of her life. St Philip is a small school where my child excels academically and socially. Every staff member knows my child and has a relationship with her. There's an active parent network that plans multiple family events throughout the year. St Philip is a great place and I'm glad I chose it for my child.
