This school has great potential and could be rated a great school. However, with recent administration and staff changes I fear parents confidence is shaken. Academically it's a strong school especially the Math Dept. but could use a stronger Science Dept. Socially it's wonderful with practically zero bullying and students seem to really support one another. My hope is that the leadership will take great care in planning the next few years to ensure that this good school will become a great one.
Our three kids went to STMA and all excelled academically and in extracurricular activities. I'd recommend it to any parent wanting to give their child a better education. The teachers there have been nothing short of exceptional and attentive. Year after year, the kids get accepted at top-notch colleges and military academies. With the recent changing of the school principal, I see even better things in the STMA future.
My three children all excelled there and I don't recall them being overburdened with homework. The school continually ranks high academically and students go to college and service academies highly qualified.
The school allows students to spread their wings so to speak. The size allows (and encourages) students to partake in a wide variety of activities. A high percentage go on to college and service academies.
