My children have been attending St. Michael for the past 5 years. We first enrolled them in the Little Saints program (daycare) and continued them into the school. St. Michael is a fantastic school that offers small class sizes, dedicated teachers that go above and beyond, and a great education that all works in a family-like environment. The course work is challenging and the athletics is top notch. Overall, we are very please with St. Michael and the education that our children are getting.

St. Michael Lutheran School is providing a great education for all three of my children. The teachers are friendly, approachable and make the time to address any questions we may have. It is a great education, great christian teachings and most of all it is like a family.

I have had both of my children (currently ages 7&10 at St. Michael since pre-K3. It has been a wonderful experience from an academic and spiritual standpoint. The school provides an excellent foundation for learning and also provides an opportunity for students who wish to advance their learning opportunities even more. My older child plays JV soccer and has had the opportunity of learning how to play saxophone in the school band (required during 4th and 5th grade). Art and computer classes further enhance their education. Google classroom is routinely used in 5th grade. This helps prepare the children for the technical demands of high school and college. Finally, I love the collegial atmosphere amongst both students, faculty, and parents.
