My son went to this school from Kindergarten to 2nd grade. In Kindergarten his teacher self-diagnosed my child as ADD and wouldn't change her attitude about it even after I had a doctor verify that he wasn't ADD. I requested to sit in the back of the classroom to show her that he would act properly if I was present, but they wouldn't allow me. In 1st grade I was never contacted, yet found out half way through the year that the teacher was allowing my son to run in circles around the class for the first 10 minutes to burn off his energy while the rest of the class was being read to (needless to say I was outraged). In 2nd grade my wife went to the school and found out that there were 5 desks in the very front of the classroom facing backwards, these students had their backs to the chalkboard and were facing the rest of the students, these were the problem children and my son was one of them. I moved my son to a public school for 3rd grade where his attitude was quickly put in check by the staff, he was also struggling at first because in academics he was so far behind, by mid-year he was excelling both academically and in behavior. His new school agreed that he wasn't ADD.

We're very happy with SMCS. This will be our son's 3rd year there. He has learned so much and is doing really well. In fact tested above grade level. The education standers are higher and harder than HISD and other private schools. Making stronger and brighter kids. The staff and family members are nice and welcoming. We have really enjoyed being a part of the SMCS family. Can't wait for 2013-2014 school year. Our son is excited to start school and see his friends and past teachers who's made an impact in his life.

I'm very disappointed in the education my daughter received at SMCS. Overall the school is horrible...There is no consistency in the classroom & the curriculum is taught very scattered. These are children's primary foundation years for their education & you would think they would want to make sure the core curriculum is taught & mastered before moving on to the next task. They use Edline for keeping parents up to date on class assignments, but it's never updated nor does it contain anything specific. They do not communicate well with parents. They also do not provide lesson plans or anything to parents to help you stay informed of what's being taught in the classroom.

Great improvements in this school the last few years. This school is well on its way to becoming one of the best middle schools in the Houston area.

Fall 2009 - St. Michael Catholic School provides a quality Catholic education for my children. As a parent of multiple children at SMS I am thankful for the quality teachers, leadership from the principal and a pastor who fully supports the efforts of the school. The school recently had a large technology upgrade in the classrooms and is currently in the midst of a campaign to build a new school.

This school lacks backbone from the principal and their Math and Spanish program have to be desired especially in middle school.

All three of my children have attended St. Michael's School and we found it to be a warm and nurturing environment. Wonderful and supportive teachers, strong academics (most do well in area high schools), good discipline, Christian environment, a lot of well behaved kids - a great environment for children K-8. All three of my children have fond memories of St. Michael's. That is why many alumnae return to send their children to the school.

Deplorable and extremely saddened by the lack of control the principal has over the parents, children and teachers. Ultimately, the children suffer and the parents continue their success in bullying socially. The previous parent who had four children there is right on, except, the Pope is the only hope!

So far, so good. Actually really, really good. Great teachers, nice families, happy kids. My kids love to go to school and it has been a great experience at SMS thus far.

I sent four kids to the school till I got so fed up with mediocrity I took the last two out before middle school began. Years ago they had a wonderful principal. A new pastor ran her off, then two uninspiring men followed her. The first was run off in mid year, the current principal has great disdain for the parents at the school, as well as the teachers. He presents himself well in public but prefers to coast along, running off any teacher or parent who asks the school to try and be better. Past school commissions have tried to replace the principal but the pastor protects him. Every year long time families leave in disgust. A new principal is the school's only hope.
