    "I have children still attending St. Raphael and some that have graduated. I can not say enough wonderful things about this school. My children were VERY well prepared for catholic high schools. Even though there are some grades that have teachers that are stronger than others, overall the K-8 experience is fantastic. Teachers are always willing to meet and discuss how to help your child succeed. Administration is open to comments and suggestions if parents are willing to voice their opinion. i highly recommend this school. I think it's the best catholic school on the west side."

    "My children are currently attending St. Raphael School and I am always amazed at how caring all the teachers are. The one time I had a concern it was handled professionally and kindly. The teachers my children have had were always available to talk with me about any concern or question I had. All of my childrens teachers have made themselves available when my children needed a little extra help. I looked at other schools and I felt they did not come close to what St. Raphael had to offer. I do not understand a past comment about not teaching the children keyboarding skills(type). They are taught those things, but if a child does not practice at home their keyboarding skills will be lacking. The computer teachers website has a link for keyboarding drills among other things. St. Raphael has been a great place for my children to learn and grow in their faith."

    "My four children all attended St. Raphael School and all have done great in high school. St. Raphael did an excellent job of preparing them. They developed good study habits, organizational skills and learned responsibility."

    "I sent all of my children through this school and I regret it terribly. I guess I just thought it was this way at all schools. The teachers are uncaring and mean. They do not try to help or connect with the kids. I feel the kids in the school are very cliquey. It is especially bad for girls. This is my last year with children there and I am so glad to be out. More and more families are saying yes lately. The kids are just mean to each other. One big problem is that the principal. pastor and vice principal ALWAYS stick up for there school and will not do anything to help you if there is a problem with a teacher or students. They are useless in these situations."

    "Most projects, including the mandatory science fair, are done with so much parent involvement, (and often require it b/c the assignments are not age appropriate), that the projects should really have the parents' names on them. For other projects, I felt I received the grade instead of my child. Making comments to the principal on how I "worked very hard on this." got no response, concern etc. That should be a red flag to a principal. The kindergarten classes have beaten up on each other during outdoor play while the teachers pay no attention. The kids do not learn to type adequately until years after they need to, (unless the school expects parents to type all the projects up to 7th grade), nor do they know how to navigate a Word or Power Point program so they can do a project on their own. This school has added daily stress to my family's lives when I believe school experience should enhance a family's life. Some truly wonderful teachers there are limited by either excessive class size or out-dated approaches and the need to plow ahead no matter the cost. I rate the school low due to excessive parental involvement necessary for kids to excel. WE KIDS AND PARENTS NEED A BREAK"
