School Reviews

I currently have 4 children at SJM, and I thank God every day for this school. The kids learn so much more, and so much better than I did growing up in public school. And they're so happy. The school is like a family, and you'll never find a more welcoming and safe place for your kids to spend their days. My youngest daughter is deaf with a cochlear implant, so I didn't think she'd be able to attend a private school, but the staff didn't even blink when I asked if they'd consider taking her. The teachers have learned a lot of sign, they wear a microphone to help her hear, and they do all the little things that are important to make her feel included and help her succeed. The classes are small, most of the teachers have a master's degree, and the academics are top notch. They have art classes, choir, after-school sports all year round, excellent religious education, and the uniforms are the cutest you'll ever see. It's also very diverse, with kids from every culture and background. We love this place in every way.
