The school is small enough that everyone knows your daughter by name, but large enough that the girls meet new friends in each of their classes. The faculty and administration is very responsive by email and phone. I love AMSU, and my daughter is VERY happy, doing well in the honors program and also loves AMSU.
I am an alumni of this school. I loved attending AMSU. It's definitely not a school for the fracile. You have to keep your head in the game and be ready to be challenged academically every day. But in the end, you find that you received an amazing education, become cultured and met some of the most amazing people.
My daughter went to this school and this is not a school for emotionally fragile girls. They did not do their best to accommodate my daughter. They are not as flexible as they should with girls with emotional issues. They have teachers that are extremely demanding. I have no complaints as far as the education and opportunities are concerned. Most of the staff are nice and helpfull.
I am very pleased with the quality of education that my daughter received at the Academy of Mt. St. Ursula. Most of the leaders and faculty genuinely cared about my daughter as an individual and they worked collaboratively to ensure that my daughter succeeded in the areas where she may have struggled. They contacted me to address matters that required my attention and I appreciate the time that they committed to communicate and meet with me regarding the challenges that my daughter experienced. I rate the Academy a four instead of a five for two reasons: 1) One member of the school s leadership was unreasonable and unjust 2) During my daughter s senior year, the guidance counselor(s) failed to provide one-on-one assistance with the college application process, When I contacted them with questions, they gave me the impression that my phone call was a burden to them
My daughter, Jessica graduated from Mount St. Ursula in 2008. She spent four wonderful years at this school. She is now a mature, successful young lady. Jessica currently attends Georgia Institute of Technology.
I'm currently in my freshman year at MSU and I must say, it's a wonderful school. We girls are like sisters and it's a warm and most of all, peaceful environment to learn and study. At MSU, the teachers are very respectful and provide the students with a quality education, in which women grow up to be leaders. I have heard other people say how they've sent their daughter's to MSU and how successful they are today. I know one girl who graduated from MSU who currently works in the White House, another one has an internship in the football league, and another is currently a chief cadet leader at the West Point military academy. The girls all are at the top of their potential. They are what you call LEADERS.
The most important time of my formative years were spent at the Academy of Mount Saint Ursula. I was constantly encouraged and inspired to be a strong, critical thinker who would never think twice about going beyond the reaches of the Bronx and NYC. The Ursuline tradition, ideals and values are still evident in my life when I take the time to be involved in community work, find myself in leadership positions, and challenge a society that does not put others first. I hope that where ever I settle and have a family, I will be able to provide for my daughters the same quality education that I received. Thank you, Grazie, Gracias, Merci Beaucoup, MSU!
As an alumna, I feel the Mt St Ursula provided me with a great foundation for college & grad school (I even used my Calculus 'cheat sheets' in undergrad). I am still very involved & feel that to this day, they provide students with a quality education.
