My daughter loves her school. We''ve been there since PreK, she's now in first grade. The teachers have been wonderful. She's doing very well academically & obtaining a wonderful spiritual foundation. We highly recommend St Michaels.
We are pleased with our decision to send our fourth grader to St. Michaels. We are surrounded by many great school choices, but believe that the academic program is equivalent, the extra-curricular options are broad (Lego Club, Chess, Ski Club, Choir, Athletics). We are pleased with the family like atmosphere and the opportunity to volunteer in our child's school. We have a wonderful principal who cares deeply for each child. The teachers are dedicated and communicate well with families.
Choosing St. Michael School for my kids was one of the best decisions my husband and I made! Not only do they get a well-rounded curriculum, they also get a strong faith-based education with a community atmosphere. They love St. Michael School and so do we!
I attended St Michael School as did several of my family members. Many years later, we are now sending our children to St Michael because we all value the commitment to the Catholic education we received. The staff work hard to educate our children and teach them morals and respect.
Advanced academically challenging. Moral teaching. A real good school to build a responsible foundation
I would recommend St Mikes to other parents in area. Excellent teachers and school. School and church is in process of a capital campaign to address expansion and repair.
My son graduated from St. Michael School last June. He is now a freshman in high school, taking all advanced classes and doing well. St. Michael School prepared him for the rigors of high school. My daughter is currently in fourth grade and loves school.
This is a wonderful school! The teachers and principal are very involved and really care for the children and families that go there. There is great sense of community and family. Spanish is started in Pre-K and maintained throughout 8th grade. Technology is top of the line, with ipads, iMacs, smartboards, and lots of extracurricular activities. Sports programs are expanding, last year youth lacrosse program was started.
My children are thriving at this school! I have a kindergarten student and a preschool student. We are pleased with the small class sizes as well as the challenging curriculum. The principal and teachers are fantastic, and the school has a range of sports and extra-curricular clubs to cater to the interests of any student. Most importantly, the Pre K through 8 grades in one building really builds a family culture at the school. My husband and I are pleased with our choice to send our children to this school.
