this school was very good, although it lacked in several areas, i canstill say it was a very wonderful schooling and sr.jane rocks!!! it doesnt have many clubs and stuff, virtually no lockers, but the overall atmosphere is very well, and god-like, and full of love...or at least it used to be. with the economy in bad shape,, the school is not it worth anymore....they demand more and more money by the day...but the teachers are partially amazing: Mrs. Cunningham <3 Coach Rhim and Coach Clerveaux Mrs. Charles Sr. Michelle and we cannot forget Sr. Theresa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <3 who plays basketball and interacts with students very well \We luv yaaa!!

SMS what can i say i've attended the school all my life from pre-k3 till 8th grade. Ihave a lot of memories of the place the nuns and priest are very nice and the teachers are there when you need them most the friends you make at sms you will never for get. I am now a sophmore in highschool and i still remember the way the principal cried at our graduation. Though the ciriculum has a lot to be desired some teachers are really chalenging and pushing students to new levels. The tuition is not that high and there are scholoships available. though SMS is not in the most desirable of nieghborhoods when you drive through the gates and head off to class it makes you feel extremely safe. If God willing i would gladly send any of my future children there

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.
