Overall Phillips is a wonderful school! The teachers were great and very helpful. My favorite experience would have to be the pep rallies at the YMCA across the street.Team support, especially at football games, were almost always 100%! It was a great to see everyone cheering for a win from the Phillips Lions. While we enjoyed sports the main focus was academics, which makes this school unique from others. I would definitely choose Phillips as the best K-8 school in the state.

While I attended Phillips technology was available, but it was not the best, as many computers in the lab did not work. Aside from this my experience at Phillips was enjoyable. All classes (6th-8th gr) were considered Pre-AP and did prepare me for AP classes. Most teachers did not mind tutoring on certain days after school and parent involvement was important and prevalent especially with the PTA.
We practiced health and safety rule frequently.
