MCA is a very good school which instills great morals in its students. The teachers are very good and teach effectively. The principal is a very good leader. The school offers a variety of after-school programs and encourages student participation in learning new skills. The fundraising efforts are good.
We have a long history wih MCA from when it was OLHC. The Principal know every child and parent/family member associated to the child. She is extremely hands on and the staff in impeccable. One of the best schools in Marine Park/Midwood.
The school is a very family oriented close knit school. I love the class sizes and the environment. My biggest issues are with the teachers and their inexperience. Catholic shchools don't pay as well as public schools and it's difficult to get more experienced teachers into these parocial schools and I felt there were too many new teachers teaching the early years of education. There were many dicipline problems that stemmed from this. I love the school but wouldn't send my son back until they worked on the teacher quality.
