The school is wonderful. The curriculum is challenging and prepares children for academic excellence. The principal and teachers are very kind and caring. Our children love the school.

Some of the teachers in the older grades have put in writing that getting homework is a courtesy and not the responsibitlity of the teacher. When you are paying $4500.00 for one child...the homework being sent home is the teacher's responsibility. Most of the teacher's for the younger graders are amazing beyond words. Maybe the older grade teachers need to LEARN to LOVE doing their job instead of JUST doing a job.

The teachers and staff are very focused on safety and school details. Every student matters. Happy times and good memories come from the enormous support that the school and church provide my children. The students here learn how to succeed.

I have been very impressed with the teachers. The principal is very involved with the students and parents. She knows every student by name. I find my children to be more advanced in math and english than kids their age at other schools. St. Michael is unlike any other school in the area, in that it offers advanced technological resourses to every level. Every classroom has a SmartBoard and their Video conferencing system allows teachers to take their students on a virtual field trip where they interact with subject matter experts from all over the world. All of that, on top of learning values and discipline every day.

St. Michael is an excellent school that prepares children for high school...above and beyond the average amount of preparation. We are extremely happy with the school. The principal is kind and caring and has changed St. Michael School for the better.

So far I am not impressed with this school as I was with my son's other school. The staff is nice but not friendly. I think that the teachers need to give some attention to the students on a 1:1 bases.

This school is terrible. The teachers are incompetent of teaching and my daughter cannot wait to get out of the school. She feels unprepared for highschool and overall feels like the school is a prison.

This school is very good for young children. The teachers are all very qualified to teach children of all ages. The school has no bullies and is a great school if you want your children to succeed. This is definitely the best choice possible for all catholic schools. I hope you send your children because this school is definitly worth all the time, effort, and money.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
