The middle school teachers picks favorites. They spend all their money on Ipads which they don't even use any more. This school started getting worse when the principal changed the rules. Now it seems like a military school. A military school would be cheaper than this school. All the students know they are having trouble but the teachers wont help them. So, parents pull them out. But I would say all the preschoolers are having fun. yes the teachers can be a little stitch but they are all having fun. Only if middle school was the same way.

SMA was a wonderful school under the direction of the previous Principal. Since the current principal has come out of retirement for the 3rd time, things have gone down hill dramatically. Classes are overcrowded for a private school. The teachers are cold, unmotivated and lack the skill set to understand how kids learn today. If a child struggles in any one area, be prepared to shell out substantially more money for a tutor. You won't get any extra assistance here.

The elementary school is great. But the middle school is not at all. The principal plays favorites and bullys some of the students. The power has gone to her head. We need to bring back the old principal she focused on making the whole school better. Not a a good principal at all

This school has soooo much potential. Building a strong community one step at a time. Being a regional school it is definitely going through growing pains. It needs leadership, unity, "positive" parental support and smaller classes. 1ST GRADE has 30 kids. Stay tuned...

Great school despite leadership changes. Team based teaching has led to more personalized instruction. Some things could change, but where is a perfect school?

The elementry school is amazing. However, when in middle school the teachers have obvious favorites, they have poor comunication skills, and don't care if the students fail. luckily they are moving teachers around.

Brand new school campus opened for the 2009-2010 school year with 507 students. Best principal in the region. Just a wonderful new campus, teachers and staff. One of the top catholic schools in Louisville.

Was once a fantastic school with a welcoming and warm environment. However, since the merger and the new staff the school is in serious decline. there is no open friendliness not to mention poor teaching in key areas and a few overcrowded classes.

Mother of Good Counsel is an outstanding school! I have three kids who attend - pre-school, 1st grade, and 3rd grade - and we have had nothing but outstanding experiences. The teachers are top notch; they are some of the most caring, most experienced teachers I have ever seen, and my kids are learning so much. Athletics are very strong at MGC, and everyone is encouraged to get involved. There is something for every age group. Parent involvement is second to none. The parish is a very welcoming parish, and I would not want to be anywhere else. Like the motto says, 'MGC - A great place to be!'
