All three of my children have attended this school. The kids graduate and are ready for the best high schools in the city - Harvard-Westlake (my alma mater), Loyola, Marymount, NDA, Archer, etc. Parent community is fun and supportive; lots of love there. Staff and teachers are the best. My old Lower School Headmaster at Harvard told me this was the best Catholic school in the City. He was right.

We love SMT! It has a very high academic level and promotes strong Catholic values. The community is great, parents are involved and we have tons of social life. I have small children and they wake up excited to go to school every morning!
