School Reviews

I''ve had two children attend St. Michael''s. While it''s not a perfect school, St. Mike''s thrives in several areas. Extracurricular activities are one of them. If you child is interested in sports at all, this is THE school to go to. Academics have been very strong in some areas and average in others, although the stats are impressive: 99% of students graduate, 99% go to college, and of the 99% that go to college, 90% attend 4 year schools. I want my kids to be challenged academically, be safe physically and mentally, and expected to graduate and go on to college. They''ve received ALL of those things at St. Mike''s. They do have a random drug testing policy for all students which I wasn''t a fan of at first, but now it''s opened the dialogue in our house much more. It helped.

Not an inclusive community. St. Michael's High School actively excluded parents from a decision about the mandatory, suspicionless drug testing program at the school.
