St. Philip Neri, we believe that parents are the primary educators and we embrace our responsibility as co-educators.  We believe all children are a sacred and shared trust.  we believe that each child is a gift of God who must be treated with dignity, respect and care.

We are new to the school last year and I must say from day one we were made to feel like part of the family.I felt my daughter and sone were challenged academically and were provided an opportunity to participate in appropriate grade level activities. My daughter needed extra help and a resource teacher was there to provide the extra support.

I have to say....I highly recommend this school for you children. The teachers are wonderful and very helpful, the principal used to be a teacher at the school, so she understands the problems that teachers may have. This school reminds me of an "old school" as far as faith goes. I love that!!!!! My son is in several extracurricular activites. He has joined hiking club, and school store, and is looking forward to the musical.
