I attended this school from 2nd grade until 8th.One thing worth mentioning to any parent considering this school for their child is how extensive the bullying is that goes on there.

With the lack of leadership, from bother parents and teachers, students (myself included) did not have the Catholic example we needed to apply our faith. I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity, as I have grown older, to meet strong, kind, humble Catholic adults and young people, which has allowed me to re-discover my faith. Read less

wow...the person that just posted in Jan must live in the land of entitlement. I have three children that attend STM and we've been there for 6 years. The Catholic education was important to us. I believe they are getting a solid education and will be prepared for Regis HS. While there are teachers that

If there is really a problem we have addressed our concerns and on two occasions the teachers have been released. I love the sense of community and the lifelong friends that my children are developing. I find offense to the previous comment and was searching for our parent community and found this so I felt I needed to comment. Thanks :) Read less

This school, out of my 9 years of attendance, only had one great teacher. I felt as if they don't care about whether or not you succeed or not, but only whether or not you give them a good reputation. Because of my experience with this private school, i have decided to attend a publish school. This school

We have lived in many states, and my son has attended so many different public schools, and this school is a breath of fresh air! Now we know there is a difference in the quality of education, and will never go public again. They attend all the needs of each child and hold each child to the highest

We too have been somewhat dissapointed with the consistency of the staff. Some teachers are great and others leave a bit to be desired. The School leadership appears to be reluctant to deal with underperforming staff. We have also found from our own experience and from talking with other parents that

Our daughter attended STM for 9 years. The combination of our faith and her academics was priceless. There were a few very poor teachers. I'm not sure why they kept them. Overall is was a great experience. She was well prepared for a rigorous curriculum at high school.

We have 2 children enrolled at this school. The 'Blue Ribbon' award in and of itself should be enough to give you an idea of the quality of the school, but as a parent it goes far beyond that. School is always how much you invest in it with your children and for your children. The engagement is outstanding

The Extracurricular activities and involvement by both parent and student go far beyond even my expectations. We, as parents are very thankful for this school as it first and foremost preps are children to be successful in high school, but more importantly the ability to assist us as parents in making them successful in life. We are blessed to have this school Read less
