School Reviews

My son Kavon attends Mother of Good Counsel school (K-5). I have nothing but praise for his teacher, Ms. Mueller. Her unfailing dedication to her students has resulted in my son's ability to read, write, and perform arithmetic computations far beyond expected levels. The results she produces are the direct end-product of her high expectations. I am truly grateful to her, and can only hope that the next 8 years of his MGC experience are as fruitful.
