School Reviews

We transferred our daughter in from another high school last year and we couldn't be happier with the move. At Machebeuf, our daughter is challenged to grow intellectually, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. At other schools, she may have gotten the academics, but not have her faith formation reinforced by the teachers and administration. The Catholic identity here is strong and faithful to the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. My daughter commutes an hour and fifteen minutes each way to go to this wonderful school and we''re planning to send all the rest of our six kids here.
