School Reviews

This school is excellent! Academic rigor with the support and guidance of excellent teachers who are available to help students outside of class when needed. A nice variety of extracurricular activities - a wonderful speech and debate club, sports, robotics, community service and more. My daughter feels challenged, supported and is engaged both inside and outside of the classroom. A great community. All parents looking for another option for middle school should look at Monsignor Haddad.
