Resurrection - St. Paul School Reviews
Rating 3.43 out of 5 7 reviews
This school has elected NOT TO REQUIRE MASKS for children and staff, despite the high transmissibility of the Delta variant of Covid-19 and the inability of the majority of children in the school to be vaccinated at this time. I will NOT be sending my child there and I am truly shocked at the lack of concern for the most vulnerable among us.
Stay for Pre-K/K/grade 1 and then come back at middle school. STEM offerings don't really kick in until grade 6. There's a lot of potential here, maybe it'll get better with all the staff and family changeover (the principal and AP are new and the school is underenrolled). The teachers and adm can't seem to learn how to handle their email volume and answer them within a week, or do much online (weird for a STEM school). Families are nice and the school promotes good values, but so does Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Trinity, St. Louis, Lamb of God...all within commuting distance.
My kids are currently in Middle School at RSPS. We have been VERY happy here. The faculty and staff are excellent, especially the middle school. It is a friendly, welcoming community! There are many opportunities to volunteer and a ton of extracurricular activities fro the kids. The student body is more diverse than niche claims and the tuition is around $7000 if your are not adding in before and after care. Many HoCo families begin in pre-kindergarten because school plus before and after care is a good value. Is it perfect, no, but what is? RSPS teaches kids to accept others and focuses on values along with academics.
Resurrection was always concerned about the safety of the students, and made sure that they were in good care.
Resurrection offers many extra-curricular activities, which I had the most fun out of my overall experience in.
Pretty good school overall, but the content was so religion based, sometimes it wasn't as free-thinking as I'd hoped. Teachers and principles were very strict, but the students came out as better people.
