This school has alot of potential. Great teachers and programs for all. I do see plenty of spam on this page, most likely from former students that clearly have alot to learn due to horrible grammar and spelling on here. My son attends this school and although it needs improvement in the dress codes/uniform policy and they need to get rid of some problem wanna be ghetto kids that most likely transferred from public schools and bring that mentality to Mount with them... My son is doing great. If the administration from Mount reads this: please, please, PLEASE change the dress code policy and make the kids wear actual uniforms. Gucci belts, white soled shoes, multi colored pants, etc is only making the environment distracting, and also makes the kids targets for robberies when they walk out of campus. Please make some changes. I will stick with Mount till the end!

All of those other reviews are not real reviews by the parents they are made by some of the students who are mad that they failed a class or two and therefore are just blaming the teachers instead of realizing that there is a clear reason that the failed because they can't use proper grammar or spell simple words like else. I personally think that the school is a decent school with decent teachers the main problem like at all schools are the kids who just go there to hang out with friends instead of learning and cause a problem for the teachers and students alike so the ones that do try to learn can't or the teachers that are teaching have to waste their time with those hoodlums

The Mount, academically, is a great place. The staff is great and well qualified. The 22 acre campus is very nice and the facilities are clean. But I can t call the Mount a great school, mainly because of the students. For students who care, the Mount can defiantly model boys into young men. The incoming students have a "ghetto" mentality and act too immature for a catholic environment; sophomores also act the same way. By junior year, majority of the students are settled-down. I am currently a sophomore and I went to a public school prior to Mount and I sadly witness the same nonsense every day. It s only the 4th month of the school year and I m already getting transfer papers ready. MSM isn t what it was before. If you are on a budget and you want to send your child to a good school, I recommend Spellman and my transfer choice, Stepinac.

I have had 2 sons Graduate from the MOUNT, both are doing well in society. Currently I have a grandson in the JHS getting a challenging curriculum in a diverse student body . The Professsional staff is caring both in the classroom & in appearence. The Athletic Dept. is excellent, giving each student an opportunity to learn team work and discipline (which are necessary in life later on) in the sport of their choice. Overall any parent or guardian that wants to invest in a promising young man, I would highly recommend Mount St. Michael Academy. One only has to look at the alternatives to realize Mount St. Michael is second to none.

This school has proven to be one of the worst academic institutions I have ever been a part of. Ever since I first walked on campus my education has been shot. Both metaphorically and literally, reffering to the terribule neighborhood surroubding the sdchool. as u can c by mi teribul typin im obViozly not gting the edumacashino i pay so much guap for. dont send yo lil nuiggas here. totes mcgotes not worth the doe. coed schools to da casket.

My son attended the JHS and I think that Mount is an excellent school. Yes every now and then you might experience rough patches, but that life. As a whole this is an excellent school. My son opted to attend another HS and till this day he has regrets. He wished he made the decision to stay at Mount. Attend the JHS and HS - Mount prepares and motivates you to be college bound.

My son is a sophomore at Mt. St. Michaels Academy and so far I AM NOT IMPRESSED. This school is way too expensive for the nonsense that goes on, starting with their teachers who address the students in derogatory manor and when brought to the attention of the Dean it was brushed off as my son making up stories and should strongly consider counseling for my son. I am seriously considering taking my son out of this school.

My son started at MSM in Sept. and it has been a great experience for both of us. He has transitioned from Public School and I was worried about his Theology class, but his teacher is amazing, she has really taught him a lot and he has done excellent in her class. As a parent I find that the school staff is really supportive and kind. I am very happy and grateful that we are part of the MSM family.

My son is a senior and enjoyed his years with Mount. Most of the professors were very good to him. He gets along with his classmates and coaches.

My son is a freshman at Mount Saint Michael and he loves it. He is a great athlete and Mount helps him flourish in that sense and also is a great school academically.
