I attended SMMcT from the fifth to eighth grade. The academics of SMMcT's middle school program are superb and easily the best in the state. Through the help of SMMcT's outstanding faculty I was given the best preparation for high school she could have recieved. The humanities program of the Middle school is excelent as well, students are given choices as to what area of art they wish to explore, whether it is wind ensamble, fine arts, or Theater. With the school's 'no-cut' policy, the after-school athletic program is a positive experience for all. The parent involvement in this school is as strong as well. Due to the smaller grade size (about 40-45 kids) I was able to get to know everyone on a personal level, and make some of the best friends i have ever had.

There's a new Head Teacher so can't comment on that but I expect he'll be great. This is a friendly day school that turns out nice, confident, well rounded graduates. 100% college entrance.Fantastic faculty and very nice campus. Check out the web site for the school smmct.org and the parents' association smmt-parents.org. My daughter has been here since kindergarten & graduates this summer! Come and see us!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
