Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Two teachers in particular stand out as especially effective. Mary Anne Murphy has demonstrated over and over her ability to teach with a great degree of differentiation, managing students with both supplemental learning needs as well as those with the need for enrichment. Maureen Blum also has demonstrated great ability to not only teach material, but make the material relevant to the current day and "real life" for her students.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Depends upon the grade level - the middle schoolers tend to have a bit of a heavy load. The lower grades however are just right.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Students are taught to value one another as people, put integrity and hard work into their studies, and own their own mistakes. Our children have learned to value opportunities for all of the students in their cohort, apologize for wrongs and work together with their peers to find solutions.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
The teaching staff is a complete joke. Many come with a lot of baggage from previous schools.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Homework is virtually nonexistent and when you ask for more the teachers get upset. It is a glorified public school.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

No, this school does not develop honesty, integrity and fairness in its students. The make-up of the student body does not allow for that to be possible, in tandem with a principal who does little to create an environment that encourages student accountability.



- a
Academics are subpar. Blended classrooms do not provide enough grade specific learning. Teachers are stretched thin, and do not have enough support. Many students have significant behavior and mental health needs that the school cannot support, yet the principal insists on taking kids that make the learning environment difficult.



- a
Thank you St. Michael School. Watching what is going on in the public school system today, I know my children ARE getting the education I want them to have. They are safe and the teachers and priciple want the best for my children. Plus I get a say in my childrens education.




- a
Fantastic Catholic school with strong academics, sense of community, and caring relationships between staff and students. Principal and staff are truly dedicated to the betterment of students. Small class sizes allow students individualized learning and supportive learning environment.



- a
My children are in their second year at St. Michael and they absolutely love it. They thank me on a regular basis for making it possible for them to attend.
