St. Michael has been an incredible school for our four children. I can't say enough good about the teachers, the principal and the community. Mutual focus on excellent academics and formation of our kids as "good people" prompts me to write this review. Our family has become stronger, our children brighter and more deeply moral, and our faith life blossomed here at St. Michael. I give it my highest recommendation!
