We just finished our first year at St. Michael. I couldn't be happier with our choice. They offer in-school and out-of-school exposure to foreign language, art, music, drama, multiple sports, family fun, and community outreach. The after school arts programs have been a blast (Violin, Culinary Arts, Painting / Pottery, etc ). The opportunities for relationship-building have been heartwarming (Mothers Brunch, Fall Festival, Christmas Pageant, class parties, field trips, Carnival, I could go on). The principal is a graceful, compassionate, capable leader, who LISTENS, and works HARD. The teachers (and most of the parents) are well-educated and involved. St. Michael s kids are usually well ahead of their public school peers. The school is a safe, loving, structured environment, where my children are excited to go every day. We feel like we've found a second family at St. Michael (even as non-Catholics). It has been a great fit for us!

Great school where the teachers and principal really care about the students. Students practice their Christian faith through service to others and courtesy toward one another. Amazing school where my children are happy and excited to go to school each day! Very bright children who love learning.

Excellent school! New principal has instituted good reforms and brought in some new teachers. Wonderful atmosphere, and students score very high on standarized, national tests. Very friendly atmosphere for parents and children.

Nice kids. Some teachers are nice others don't care much about students. The seventh grade teacher is great! It is a fine school for certain students. Not for kids who like lots of kids and big classrooms. You get the same kids every year and it gets kind of boring. Overall I will have to say it is an okay school.

Family friendly school. Teachers are well educated and experienced. Draws students from all religions as well as Catholic. 7th grade teacher is outstanding. Sports include soccer, basketball, and cross country for boys and girls. Tuition is good value.

Great school! A strong sense of faith. Students are polite and respectful. Class sizes small and intimate. Very family friendly. Most families are very involved. Teacher alert parents to problems right away. Typical for small schools - not too many extracurricular activities. School is actually run by Nuns, rare today. Oddly, it is the most costly school in Diosese though, even though it is the smallest.
