Mission Grammar has provided my daughter an education setting that not only offers exceptional academics with advanced technology integrations but also an environment that fosters faith, community service, and deep caring for others. Because Mission Grammar offers an extremely valuable and cost effective education, I am confident my child will grow to be a more confident and well rounded individual.

My stepdaughter just started here this year and I must say that not only are the staff accomodating and know every student but they are also extremely kind and available. I have her teachers cell phone number and can text her in case of issues and she will contact me the same. She has frequent availability for meetings and every report card is followed with a meeting so that you can know how your child is doing. They have classes that help kids think about how to be good citizens in the community like Urban Improv and they also teach them to think about the work they are doing not just memorize. They are helpful financially for those who need it and I am very impressed. The new principal seems responsive and easy to access. The afterschool programs are great and we participate. There is no middle school anymore since it has been sent to Cathedral but my other stepdaughter goes there and loves it. The kids are city kids and sometimes can be a bit rough around the edges but they are made to respect each other and must maintain proper grades (3.0) or they are asked to leave. There are tutors if you are slipping in grades and this isn't extra.

I am parent here and I must say my child will not be returning. The middle school's curriculum is not challenging at all. Absolutely terrible math program and no field trips. My daughter is unhappy and feels bored. She did meet great friends, but will not send her again next year....(might pull her out this year because she is so bored with the material)

Mission Grammar is the best school in Boston. The teachers are intelligent, motivated and caring. They are truly part of our family and I trust them with my son becuase I know that he is genuinely cared for. They also do an excellend job of giving him individualized support allowing him to overcome obsatcles and excell at his strength.

My children absolutely love Mission Grammar School. There are in the middle school and cannot imagine being at any other school. Maura Bradley, the school's Principal, is superb in every way. Students and parents alike think the world of Ms. Bradley. She really cares about our students. The assistant principal, Ms. Dutson is a wonderful new addition to the school's leadership. Mission Grammar is the best of the best and my children will be there until they graduate.

Mission Grammar School does not represent what a catholic institution should be. It runs more like a business. The school charges unbelievable amounts of money and the students are barely learning. The principal or her direct staff aren't nice people, whatsoever.

This school is in dire need of new leadership and better teachers because the education is truly lacking in all areas. It is ashame that parents pay for this subpar education because the students are so ill-prepared for a challenging high school. Just ask the principal about the marginal standardized test scores and her plans to help the ones who are struggling and watch the baffled look. This school needs to be shut down and sold and the proceeds given to better performing Catholic schools ASAP.

As a Mission Grammar parent for the past 4 years, my husband & I feel that we have made a great choice towards our child's future. The school population is small & there is a great sense of community among the faculty/staff & students; also the faculty/staff are dedicated professionals who love education & love the children. Extracurricular activities & additions to the curriculum such as Art & Music are up & coming & I would like to see more parent involvement with the school's Family Organization. Overall, I think that Mission Grammar is one of Boston's (Roxbury's) hidden jewels & I am proud that our scholar (that's what the students are referred to as) will be following the footsteps of other alumni relatives/friends.

Mission Grammar is an AMAZING SCHOOL. I am the proud parent of an 8th grader. My son came home after his first day of school and said 'Mom I have the best teacher this year and he is new'. I was so happy to see that my son liked school. I want to thank Mr. Mihal for his endless commitment to my son's education. Thanks for everything Mr. Mihal you have changed my son's life! God Bless you and Mission

Mission Grammar is a second home to my children. The entire staff and faculty love the children and are very dedicated. The principal has brought wonderful change to the school.

My daughter attended Mission Grammar and it was a great experience for her that I joyfully shared with her. Although the extracurricular activities need to be addressed with more attention, the principal is extremely warm, loving, compassionate and caring. these are attributes that are shared by the whole faculty however in a very discipline orientated environemnt. This creates an environment where teh children feel safe and learn alot because of all the love but more importantly also realising that boundaries exist and consequences follow once the boundaries are not respected.

Mission Grammar School is an amazing school with a welcoming atmosphere. The principal is dedicated, kind, and in touch with all children and there families. The teachers work long hours and hold high expectations for all students. There is a clear and consistant discipline policy which is based on Responsive Classroom. My 3 children love Mission Grammar School.

Mission Grammar School has a great faculty and wonderful educators. But the principal and discipline policy are non existent. There is no consistency with punishment when children break school rules. This leads to chaos and will eventually lead to great downfall of this school.

I feel that this inner-city Catholic school has some of the most dedicated and hardworking teachers, and my child attended a school before this one. Leadership and extra-curricular activities are lacking, the teachers and their work ethic make a huge difference!
