St. Raphael is a wonderful school. My children are receiving a great academic and religious education and most importantly, they love their school and the friendships they have developed. The teachers and staff are extremely caring and available at any given moment. Thank you for being such a great learning environment for my kids!

I highly recommend this school to others. The teachers and the staff are extremely caring and challenge the students more than at a public school. The student's earn their grades whereas those in public school often are just given the grade. My daughter started pre-kindergarden almost two years ago and has excelled. She start's school this fall as a first grader and my son will start pre-kindergarden this fall as well. It gives an awesome foundation in faith even if you are not Catholic, we aren't and she is treated the same. However, there is quite a bit of homework to help kids master individual areas they may struggle in. The teachers offer tutoring after school, and my daughter loves the friends she has made. I couldn't ask for anything better. They offer sports but it's generally not until the kids are in fifth grade.
