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.
Both my boys are starting school at st. Michael's, i've heard only wonderful things about this school from other people!!!everyone was so kind and especially both my boys loved it with the tour they had, they can't wait to start!!!
I have friends that have their children there and they are very happy with the school. My daughter will certainly attend this school.
If you ant a catholic education for your kids, sms is thw way to go! We are building a brand new campus and it will be amaing. Our new principal, Ms. Scrowonek, is AMAZING.
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 new school year, Fall 2009, St. Michael School has a new principal! We are looking forward to a great year!!
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.
