Anyone living in the surrounding communities will tell you that St. Michael's students regularly populate the top 10 high school graduates at Frankenmuth, Vassar, Reese, and a few other High Schools. Employers and fellow business owners tell me they search out former St. Michael's students for several reasons I don't have the time and space to explain. Most St. Michael's students go on to secondary education in college or tech schools, some to academies, etc... The Athletic, music, art, and computer technology education are excellent. One of the best in the surrounding counties. Students are encouraged and learn to speak publicly, act responsibly, and live by a higher standard. Yes, kids are kids. Bad choices are made by all of us at sometime or another in our life. These kids aren't saints. But they will get one of the best educations available in the K-8 in the State. Many of the teachers and instructors have secondary degrees and excel in on going educational training programs. It is a very open to the public educational facility that most find very warm and welcoming. Give it a chance.
