We wouldn't go anywhere else and drive from a different county to send our child here. I only wish this school went through 12th grade!

This school has been amazing. We switched our daughter here from the elementary school and have seen her blossom. The teachers and staff are amazing. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They really want to include the family in school life, which is so nice. Our kids will never go back to the public school.

St.Michael's School offers an outstanding education for students of all backgrounds. The instruction is designed for 21st century learning and the parent involvement is wonderful. Our family is especially impressed with the quality of the school day for our children. They are challenged and supported by their teachers, they enjoy friendships and respect for each other, and community service is a natural part of their responsibilities. Their teachers are all NYS certified with masters degrees. 100% of St. Mike's students passed the NYS tests in Math and in English Language Arts. This school offers the most well balanced, well taught, well supported education in all of Yates County. I will be thrilled when they once again offer junior high. The middle schools in this area are having serious problems and families deserve to choose what school is the best fit for their child. St.Michael's School is affordable, successful, and fabulous.

St. Michael's School is a hidden jewel in Penn Yan, NY. The curriculum, teachers and administation make this school the best in the region. Students are challenged and very well educated (often beyond their public school peers) in a caring, Christian, academic environment. You do not have to be Catholic to attend St. Michaels-it is open to students of all faiths. St. Michael's students are respectful, well mannnered and truely care about others. My daughter started at St. Michael's in Pre-school and is currently entering fourth grade, I cannot say enough about the positive experience we have had at this school. Well worth the investment! I would encourage all parents to send their children to this school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
