My children have flourished at St. Raphael! They are academically challenged as well as becoming compassionate and respectful human beings. The teachers are fantastic! Always having an open communication policy with parents. The rest of the staff and administration are always looking out for our children. St. Raphael’s community is always very supportive.

We have 3 boys at Saint Raphael School right now. I cannot brave enough about how much we love it here. The smaller class sizes create such an intimate and unique setting for the kids. The teachers are phenomenal and make it a priority to build a relationship with each student. The thing that stands out most for us is the faith-based education. We couldn't be more pleased with how our children are growing both academically and spiritually. Growing in their faith day by day within a peer setting is so special and invaluable. We are truly so fortunate to be a part of the Saint Raphael Family!

School Review have the best job in the world. First of all, St. Raphael School has an incredibly welcoming atmosphere. Teachers, staff members, parents, students, and prospective students are all made to feel like family. Secondly, I get to spend all day teaching English! Talk about a dream come true! At St. Raphael, every teacher feels the same passion for his/her subject and grade level. We ALL think we have the best job in the world! Finally, we get to play a part in turning our students into disciples of Christ. Every grade attends a yearly retreat and participates in several service projects throughout the school year. We pray before class, before meals, and during our weekly Mass. There is an inner light that shines in the eyes of these students when they talk about their faith. We are blessed to be able to teach them, and they are blessed to attend such a great school as St. Raphael.

Our children have attended St. Raphael School since their Kindergarten year. We have been at the school for seven years so far and have had a wonderful experience. The teachers are excellent and are truly there for their students. They feel called to teach in Catholic Education and it shows! Our students are offered excellent curriculum, technology and extracurricular activities. They are excelling in school and sports and are very happy with their classes, teachers and peers. We feel we are part of a family community and we are so pleased we have chosen St. Raphael School.
