Passionate teachers & staff coupled with a strong academic culture & positive environment. Three of my children have attended and one is currently attending. My three oldest (top 10% at UT-Austin & an athlete at Florida Southern, the third going to Texas Tech with a small scholarship who also received a four year modest academic scholarship at Antonian High School) credit their early path to academic & social success to Mount. We need more schools like Mount. It is a small price to pay in helping shape your child's developing academic, leadership. And empathy skills.

Great school and community! Excellent academics and extra curricular activities. They have the city's only Catholic Montessori primary program with experienced and loving teachers. The Sisters of the Sacred Heart's legacy and mission make the school community a great place to be!
