St. Phillip Neri is a good school. The 4th-grade teacher Mrs. Ashmore is amazing. She's teaching math & reading above the kid's current grades which is amazing. I love that the classes are small & that the kids are also learning religion. They have good after-school programs as well as early & late drop-off times which are very flexible.

SPN has really good teachers. They have weekly Mass Which is important to my family. They also have math reading enrichment programs that are very helpful. It's a small, but nice school environment.

SPN is a small school, But its great because the kids are able to receive personalized attention as the classes are small. My kids really benefit from the smaller classes. They have a great program for Math & Reading called I-Ready which helped my kids advance with math , and reading. I especially love the 1st & second grade teachers as they are the favorite. The teachers are very assessible as well, and they communicate through the class Dojo often.
