St Philip The Apostle School Reviews
I tell you what...I will make it simple. I am a grandparent of two students who attend this school. My grandson attended in Kindergarten. My daughter took him out in first grade because he attended private schools from 2 1/2 figuring his foundation was set. He attended public school 3 weeks in 1st grade. I went to grandparents day, sat in his class with him half the morning. While sitting in the class I sent my daughter a text, threatening her about taking my grandson out of that school and returning him to St. Philip's. The Principal there, who I had come to know, said she figured he would be back knowing the level of excellence both my daughter and I strived for in education. He returned the next day. He tested in the upper 80's in every subject and in the 90's in Math and Science and a few other subjects, on the standardized test. The Principal has the love and respect of all the students and is an OUTSTANDING EDUCATOR. She works to educate the total child! The down side of St. Philip's is they could use a few more male teachers. That's it, if that's all...GREAT SCHOOL, GREAT EDUCATION AND GREAT AND CARING TEACHERS, its not just a job to them. They actually EDUCATE!!!
I recently read a review concerning a student. The parents seem to complain about the principal and they way they were treated. I have never had that experience and, in fact, have had the opposite. I find that St. Philip's is a welocoming school with best interests in making certain the children are safe and well educated. Why do these parents keep a child in a place where they find so many things wrong? Doesn't make any sense to me.
