School Reviews

  • Recommended March 07, 2013 - I have attended Mount Saint Mary Academy for 8 years and never could have done better. Unfortunately this year I have to leave the school due to the fact that I am in 6th grade. All of the teachers are really nice and appreciative. The class size is limited to 20 kids. This lets your child have one on one talking. If you have a question or are struggling on a subject you can get extra help. School can get boring after awhile. But that''s why we have afterschool activities. Some include: Running Club, Drama Club, Lego League, Basketball, Media Club, etc. Any student is not put to shame here. We are all one big family. We also DO NOT tolerate bullying. When you are at Mount Saint Mary Academy you basically get to know almost everyone''s name because we are a small group plus the older kids teach younger children. We are a school that your child will feel comfortable in. We love every soul, good or bad, that comes to our school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
