We have just started at MSW in the preschool program, but already, it feels like home. Lots of community building activites for the preschool families and the whole school. There is wonderful communication from the staff and principal. The academics in preschool seem right on, and my daughter adores her teacher and new classmates.
I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. The children who attend msw are cliquish, but as to no surprise they inherit that from their parents. Even the vice principle is cliquish and is inadequate at her job. she will refuse to help children and will partake in certain activities that should be deemed unacceptable for a v.p to get involved in. The athletic program is mediocre at best. they are coached by fathers who have never played the sport and will refuse to play children because they are outside the clique. the children who attend the school have no concept of empathy and are stuck-up. I would suggest looking at St. Paul's before ever sending a child into this type of situation.
Great School. The teachers and staff there do a great job.Our two sons have graduated from MSW and the lessons they have learned at MSW have helped them as they have moved on to High School.
Mary, Seat of Wisdom is a wonderful school that offered an excellent education in a Christian environment. From the start we were welcomed and felt part of a warm, caring community. Two of my children have graduated from here and gone on to great success in high school and college; I partly attribute their successes to the great foundation that they received here. My last child is currently in junior high. In addition to receiving a great education, my children have been involved in many extracurricular activities and made life-long friends.
I am a parent of two children who have attended MSW since preschool and are now in Jr. High. I have been so impressed by the positive atmosphere at the school, the excellent teaching staff, the level of technology and the involvement of the parents. MSW has been an excellent choice for our family. My children are doing very well academically, have made wonderful friends, are active in a variety of sports and clubs and have really grown in their faith through their experiences at school. I highly recommend MSW School to other families who are seeking a solid Catholic education.
The individual attention students receive along with a strong sense of community at this school
Cliqueish parents and students. Heavy handed administration. Great teachers.
I love MSW, and that is coming from a student. The teachers are awsome and what more could you ask for. A great staff team, friends, and teachers. That is what really MSW is.
We love MSW school. We have a new enthusiastic, lively principal who demonstrates a great faith in God and love for teaching young minds. She is a Catholic nun, who prays with the children and even sings and plays the guitar. The school crafts an education that meets each child's special gifts and needs. My second-grade daughter is an excellent reader -- a skill she learned in Kindergarten at MSW. There is a special program for the top readers. They work with a reading specialist and tackle more complex reading, spelling and grammar. The children who need additional help have a reading specialist who works with them, too. My son is in 4th grade and is in accelerated math. The teachers are very dedicated. More than half of them have their masters degrees. There are so many extra-curricular activities - the kids are doing and learning all the time.
I've found the school to have an extremely supportive staff. The're active at communicating with the parents. There is a music program, art, and spanish language is intergrated into the normal school program.
The quality of the teachers is outstanding; the teachers are truly dedicated. They WANT to be there. There are plenty of opportunities for parents to be involved. Best of all, MSW kids are taught character and their leadership is seen in the community for years to come.
The principal is biased, the teachers are not qualified and slack off as soon as their first year is over, children are HORRIBLY prepared for high school and do terrible in public schools, the extracurriculars are minimal, the parents of other children are overbearing, the kids are rich and spoiled, and you have to pay tuition for all of it.
