As a parent and educator, it was extremely important that we decided upon a school for our son that focused on developing his whole self. From our very first visit to St. Rays, it was evident that there was just as much emphasis on social emotional and spiritual well being as there was on academics. St. Raymond’s Reggio-Inspired Preschool curriculum seemed like the perfect combination of everything we were looking for for our son. As expected, the impressive Preschool curriculum allowed our son to be the facilitator of his own learning and what a joy it was to watch him flourish! The teachers and staff worked tirelessly each day to meet the students where they were, all while continuing to challenge them academically, socially and spiritually. Now as parents of a Kindergarten student we can say that St. Ray’s has taken education to a new level! Our son has developed a love for learning and we see him being prepared for the world around him each day. Our son has made so many friends and genuinely loves school! We are beyond thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the St. Ray’s community!
