An amazing atmosphere for the newest students - Preschool and PreK classes - to those preparing for high school. A welcoming environment with caring teachers. Up to date technology.

The school has a wonderful nurturing and friendly environment. The class sizes are smaller then the public schools which we love. There is a real focus on helping wach other and serving our community. There are many excellent public school choices around us, but I can see the strength of the academics and quality of the time spent at St. Michaels is beyond compare!

Choosing St. Michael School for my kids was one of the best decisions my husband and I made! Not only do they get a well-rounded curriculum, they also get a strong faith-based education with a community atmosphere. They love St. Michael School and so do we!

We have a fourth grader at St. Michaels. We are pleased with the family like atmosphere, small class size, unique club activities (Lego, Chess), and most importantly the strong faith-based education. St. Michaels is surrounded by many good school options, but we feel confident in our selection. There is great leadership and communication at our school.

My children are thriving at this school! I have a kindergarten student and a preschool student. Both of my children enjoy the small class sizes, and my husband and I are pleased with the challenging curriculum. We are most impressed with the family culture in the school community. The Pre-k through 8 model is the perfect choice for our kids!

My daughter attended 2 years of their pre-school program and we have nothing but good things to say about every aspect of this school. My daughter will be in kindergarten this year, and now my son will be entering his first year of preschool. We plan on staying with this school for a long time!

I have three children gardes 3, 5 and 8 at this school and we love it. The curriculum is very challenging and includes spanish, art, music, religion and phys ed fro pre-school on. I highly recommend SMS to anyone seeking a Christian education for their children. Excellent extra-cirricular activities where everyone can participate.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
