Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective
September 21, 2015
The teaching staff at this school are forced to teach several subjects to several grades because of the small number of student body and the tight budget the school is forced to operate under. The turnover in teachers is high because of low pay and nominal benefits compared to the public schools. Students experience gaps in their education.

The school develops respect in so far as the students are made to be quiet during class time and school functions.

In the morning assemblies some of these subjects are spoken of but unfortunately not always practiced in the classroom and playground. Depending upon the child's perceived social economic status bully's are largely left to their destructive behavior.

The children have good and bad role models in some of the teachers and administration of the school.

We observed several negative impacts as it related to the students and families that had children at this school. The school suffers from low enrollment, less then (175 students for k-8) influential wealthy families, high turn over in teachers and a principal that is heavily swayed by the funding to the school by social economical families. The teachers have to teach several grade levels and several subjects causing gaps in the students education coming out of this school. The overall feeling of tension is felt on the playground to the parents that have children in the school.

This school is a wonderful school. The teachers are amazing, the staff really cares about each child, and the kids love it. We have not had trouble with bullies at this school and the kids are very kind to each other.

Mt. St. Mary's is an excellent school! My children have had an excellent education there and are well prepared to go to high school. The teachers at the local high school have been quoted as saying they love to get the students from MSM in their class, as they are knowlegable and courteous.

What I like about MSM is that my child can get an excellent education in a conservative environment. The children are respectful. They aren't exposed to inappropriate dress, language or drugs. Many Valedictorians for N.U. Highschool have come from Mt. St. Mary's Academy.
