This will be our 7th year at SMS. I will have 5 children in the school, and every year gets even more exciting. The faculty, staff, students, and parents all contribute to the school's greatness. As a parent, I have no problem feeling included in my children's learning. Everybody is always welcome at SMS and is encouraged to engage in the school happenings. It is obvious how much the staff cares for the students!

Great school, great experience and wonderful students! My family has been so happy here and we are very pleased with all the teachers and staff. Much more than a school community, more like a school family.

Both my boys went to St. Michael School from Pre-K through 6th grade and it was a great stepping stone for them. They received a great education and confidence in themselves and their abilities. The thing I loved the best was the sense of family, I knew my kids were loved and their best interest always came first. We have lots of great memories of St. Michael School!!!

This will be our family's 4th year here. My 3 children will all be in High School this year. We have had a wonderful experience here. There is a solid Catholic foundation due to the amazing principal and parish priest. The school has been consistently growing since we've been here. I love, love, love all the new activities and opportunities SMS has allowed my children, including work at The Retreat farm, archery, photography, and the most memorable few days at Camp High rock! I look forward to each year here at St. Michael's!

Wonderful school, been very happy with our experience here, can't say enough about the staff and how they have helped my children blossom over the years! Really worth the investment, just a fantastic environment for any one looking for a traditional education that will definitely put your child ahead!

My non catholic child has attended since Pre K and aboslutely adores the school. The children are all from families who really care about education and that produces a serious educational environment where learning is done cheerfully and successfully without the usual distractions of the public elementary schools. Academically my child is ahead of the same age kids who attend public school and special programs are available for the gifted children who want to take advantage of them. The staff is totally competent and the school has the look and feel of traditional education where the emphasis is the academic achievement of the children. The religious education is serious but tasteful and not overbearing for non catholics. When people ask me about it my most heartfelt response is that the education at St Michaels is an absolute steal.
