The staff here at St. Michael's is wonderful. An environment well orchestrated with the commitment to each child bringing forth leadership ability and independence. A defined strength of positive reinforcement in discipline instilling a greater moral value in character. Provision of principals a child needs on the path towards self discovery.
I have a second grade son who has gone to St. Michael since Kindergarten. My husband and I are very pleased with the school. The academics are challenging, class sizes are small, the atmosphere is very positive and loving. Children take responsibility for their behavior and learn excellent manners and respect towards peers and adults. The presence of the IHM sisters makes the school extra special. I truly appreciate that along with academics, my son is growing stronger spiritually and building a stong character with a moral compass. These are lifelong traits that will always guide him through whatever life brings. As parents we feel blessed to be able to give our son the opportunity to attend St. Michael Catholic School.
I transferred my two sons from public and lived it very much. First of all, they are challenging enough academicallly. My first son was in ESOL program and he did not improve his English enough in public. After he was trasferred, his English became totally different. My second son was in Gifted program in Fairfax county public school. He has to work hard to achieve his own goal here. Second of all, my sons became so faithful and so polite incredibly. They were really disciplined after they were transferred from public school. I have been so satisfied. Third of all, the tuition is affordable.
St. Michael School is a fantastic place for the education of young children. St. Michael provides the best teachers and the best atmosphere for learning that we have seen. My child is happy and comfortable learning there, and we are very happy with the value of his education and the consideration the faculty and staff have shown us.
St. Michael School is a fantastic place for the education of young children! The teachers are seasoned and energetic, the curriculum is steady and exciting, and the administration really makes the school into a community. We chose St. Michael's School after interviewing at no less than eight different area private schools, both Catholic and non-Catholic. This school had the best teachers and the best atmosphere for learning that we have seen. Our son is happy and comfortable learning there, and as parents we are very happy with the value of his education and the consideration the faculty and staff have shown us.
My children received a wondeful traditional Catholic Education at St. Michael's. The presence if the IHM Sisters adds to the excellent teaching staff. I highly recommend this school!
Our school has something to offer everyone. The kids love it and get along so well together.
This school has really moved in the right direction. Unfortunately, they had to make a lot of cuts last year, but one could never tell. The school is so alive. There is so much spirit. Everyone is so happy! The work that is produced by the students is amazing. The faculty and staff are very child centered.
Very traditional school which works for average students. If your child is gifted, this is not a school I would recommend. There is no option to take geometry here so you can move on to upper level math classes right away in high school, as an example. If your child is gifted, look at other school options -- either the GT program in the public schools or private programs such as Flint Hill.
St.Michael is the a wonderful school. The staff and teachers are warm and friendly. I know my children are recieving the best education possible with the added bonus of solid christian values.
This is the best school you can go to. You can take algebra 2, so you may take geometry in high. Don't miss out!
This is a wonderful Catholic, conservative school that is teaching great morals and values that kids need more of these days.
I love this school a lot. They have every single thing you need band, sports, choir, honors.
St. Michael's is a pro-life and family-oriented school where discipline, order, and respect are part of the daily routine. A visit to the school reveals learning happening in every room. Faith is fully integrated into academics so that students emerge as competent, spiritual young people ready to take on the challenges of top area high schools. Weekly the students attend Mass. Each day, in addition to the basics, serious attention is paid to one of the specialties such as art, physical education, music and computer. And there are also extra-curricular opportunities in all of those areas. There has been a Spanish program in place for several years now. Students seem happy and motivated. Another plus is the volunteer program that facilitates the active participation of most families. There are even parents teaching and on the staff . St. Michael's is well worth the very reasonable cost. Check out our school!
St. Michael's is wonderful. It challenges and motivates your child and will give him/her an excellent grounding in all subject to be able to do well in high school. The only thing I wish it had was a cafeteria lunch menu; they do sell pizza and hamburgers but they are brought in from fast food restaurants. Otherwise, top marks for this school in what matters most: a great education.
St. Michael's School in Annandale is a wonderful school, very academically challenging. We believe ourselves fortunate that our children were accepted into this school. Parental involvement is very high in the school. Music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities are available. only downside is because it is a private school there is no school bus transportation, a difficulty when both parents work, which we do. We have been extremely fortunate to have other parents bring our children home every day.
