St Rita School Ratings & Reviews

We found this school by accident when we were stuck without a school for our son to go to for 1st grade. It was July and our time was running out. We did not intend on sending our kids to catholic school for elementary school but we are so happy we found St. Rita. We started with the idea of it being a temporary fix for the year and now we are in our 3rd year and have 3 children in the school. The amount of care and love our children receive in a day is not something you find just anywhere. Also, the knowledge that is being instilled in my children all with out the stress associated with a public school education is something I never knew existed. It blows my mind each day when the kids come home and see what they are working on, they are learning and thriving in a loving environment where the philosophy is not to teach to the test. They are learning things that are not being taught in the public school, at least not at the lower levels, and they are excited to learn it! My children all love going to school each day, which was not the case when my son was in a public school. Now that we have found St. Rita we have no plans on leaving!!

Our daughter is in her 6th year at St. Rita School. We have watched her grow through the years at SRS into a respectful, responsible and caring individual. She has thrived both spiritually and academically and has thoroughly enjoyed her years at this wonderful Catholic School. It is very important to our family that the same values and principles that we hold true are also taught at school and this is definitely the case at St. Rita. We have been fortunate to be able to volunteer during fundraisers and events and have witnessed firsthand the teacher’s interactions with the students. There is a tremendous amount of love and caring that the students receive on a daily basis. We strongly feel that our daughter will be more than prepared for when she graduates from St. Rita School and enters high school.

My sons started SRS in Kindergarten and First Grade and are now in fifth and sixth grade. We are very happy with the education they've received of both their mind and spirit! My sons' teachers have always been very loving and caring. Of course, no school is perfect. In the past if we had an issue it was rectified! I was extremely saddened to read some of the reviews, from former students, regarding the bullying they experienced! This is a new year for our school. Change is good! We have a new principal and refreshed middle school faculty. Our Back to School Meeting focused on one unifying message which I found extremely comforting; it was a message of change, trust and love. I am happy to say that Middle School has been challenging academically and my son continues to learn self-responsibility. Both boys love all their teachers; the teachers and faculty are amazing people. The Middle School teachers as well as fifth grade teachers work as a team and I believe all the teachers at SRS are truly dedicated to the well-being of every student. I'm looking forward to the years we have left at SRS! This year is the beginning of wonderful things to come for our students and school community. We love St. Rita School!

St. Rita School is a wonderful experience for children, academically, socially and spiritually. The children are treated with love and respect. This school instills manners, values, morals and most of all kindness to others. I have 2 children at St. Rita School and I am completely in awe each day with what my children come home with. I love hearing about their day and the lessons they learn academically & socially. It is a wonderful community to be a part of. I feel blessed each day that I have the opportunity to send my children to this beautiful place each day.

As a former student of St. Rita's that is now a junior in high school I believe I can provide an accurate account of the school. While I will admit the education provide by St. Rita placed me a year or two (depending on the subject) ahead of most other students while beginning high school the environment does not promote responsibility. St. Rita was far too sheltered if I didn't complete my homework my grades almost never were affected. The teachers each had a select few favourites and those were the students that seemed to have almost a diplomatic immunity. I was bullied by many other students throughout middle school and because of that suffered severe depression. So severe that suicide was a daily thought of mine. None of the staff ever did anything although I complained before I became severely depressed. Over all I would not recommend this school if you would like your child to remain mentally stable if not than it's the perfect school for you and you're kids.
