School Reviews

I am a mother of 4 children, 2 of which have graduated from St. Rita School. My two other children are in the first and fifth grades. Three things that this little gem of a school has going for it is (1) the teachers, (2) technology and (3) the school community. The teachers truly care about their students, adapting blended learning to encourage students to learn beyond the normal coursework and giving students extra help and time should the coursework prove to be a bit challenging. They constantly assess the children's aptitudes, partnering with parents to help the children learn at home as well at school, and reinforce lesson plans. The teachers use the latest technology in the classroom such as SmartBoards, ChromeBooks, and iPads for grades 6 through 8. These help prepare the children for high school. As well, the teachers encourage STEM learning through in-class demonstrations, after-school classes (Bricks-for-Kids) and field trips. Through the teachers' efforts, the graduates of St. Rita School have continuously been accepted to their first high school choices, often with partial or full scholarships. In addition, even though the children have graduated, their friendships and those of the parents remain. I am still very good friends with parents from my older children's classes and am very happy to have made new friends at the school. They are our village, our support system for our children and each other. I highly recommend St. Rita School. Learning has its difficulties, however, the school staff, teachers and parents of the school makes the hard days easy, and the easy days, fun.
