St. Michael Catholic School Testimonials

From Parents During 2023-2024: 

We have been at St. Michael school since 2019 and we have been so grateful. The clergy, leadership team, teachers, and staff members truly cares about a person-centered education for us and our kids. As an international family, the school and the parish have been the place and the community where we feel so much hospitality, love and support. We have been feeling supported in our parenting journey while educating our kids as whole persons, awakening their capacity to know and learn with sacrifice and joy, to live immersed in the reality that learning is always positive even when challenging, and instilling in them (and us) a love for Truth. - Cairoli Family (Grades PreK, 2, and 4)

Our family has been a part of the St. Michael church and school family since our son was in preschool. Knowing that his school is truly a family is so amazing. The faculty and staff are second to none! The academics are rigorous and engaging, and we love that faith is intertwined in everything at St. Michael’s. From attending school Mass together each week to singing at a pep rally to praying together before an athletic event, it is there. Reverence, service and leadership are not just words to the students, they are truly who they are. - McNeish Family (Grade 5)

I am very impressed by the administration’s commitment to an authentically Catholic identity that infuses all aspects of the school. The leadership is passionate and transparent, and my daughter’s teachers have been wonderful. I would strongly recommend StMS to any family looking for a supportive Christian learning environment for their child. - Hlebowitsch Family (Grade 1)

Wonderful, Christ-centered education emphasizing the values of service and academic excellence. My older children were well-prepared for college preparatory high school on both scholastic and spiritual levels. Excellent coordination and communication between the pastor, school administration, teachers and parents. I absolutely LOVE this school! - McCurdy Family (Grades 2 and 7)

We love St. Michael the Archangel Catholic School! My daughter is receiving the highest quality education rooted in the Catholic faith with a focus on academic excellence, reverence, and leadership. They also have wonderful athletics, arts, clubs. etc. that have fostered my daughter's passions. We would highly recommend StMS to any family looking for a school home! - Williams Family (Grade 1)

From Parents During 2022-2023: 

There is no school that compares to the Catholic education our children are getting at St. Michaels. The rigor and depth of the curriculum, as well as the variety of things our children are learning is unparalleled. We appreciate the Catholicism interwoven with all aspects of learning and the impact on our children's whole development. - Cassell Family (Grades 4 and 6)

We have had such a great experience at St. Michaels. Between the education quality, the values instilled, the wonderful families and peers our children are exposed to, there are just so many positives! - Falato Family (Grades 4 and 6)

St. Michael's caring teachers and staff go above and beyond on behalf of our children to ensure that they are well taken care of and learn the skills needed for critical thinking, academic excellence, and personal growth. Along with excellent academics, St. Michael provides for even more growth with extra-curricular activities, and individual and team sports programs. We have been very happy with our boys attending St. Michael, and feel confident that they will be equipped with the skills, in their faith and academics, to succeed and make a positive impact beyond St. Michael the Archangel Catholic School. - Carlin Family (Grades 5 and 7)

We have been really pleased with how our two daughters are doing well in school, both academically and spiritually! The school is more of a community, which is something I don't think can be readily found in public schools. There is also the added benefit of having them further understand what it means to be a Roman Catholic full-time, for in school, they can see everyone practice their faith rather than just seeing it part-time when they come home at the end of the day and on the weekends with us or in Sunday mass. Additionally, we love how St. Michaels focuses on character strengths throughout the year and try to help them understand how to apply these traits to how they treat each other, family, and friends. - Olsen Family (Grades 3 and 7)

Our sons have benefited from a Catholic education, which reinforces the values we teach at home. Their teachers have been very engaged with the boys' educations and have challenged them academically and socially to be the best version of themselves. - Beggs Family (Grades 1, 4, and 5) 

From Parents During 2021-2022

We love StMS! I cannot say that enough. We love the supportive and loving community it provides for my girls. We love the dedication of the teachers and staff. We love the fact that Jesus is a part of my children's lives every day, and they are learning morality. I was speaking to my youngest when she heard that religion isn't taught in all schools. She was in shock and said, "I wouldn't want to go to that school, I need Jesus every day." This is just one of many stories that demonstrate the profound effect a Catholic education provides. - Penabad Family (Grades 1, 4 and 6)

We could not be happier with our experience at St. Michael School. We value clear and consistent communication from the Administration and faculty. Our girls love the hands-on learning that they experience through projects. The involvement from the priests within the school is refreshing. And the list goes on...! We feel truly blessed to be a part of this school!  - Schmidt Family (Grades 1 and 4)

What a blessing this school has been! We LOVE St. Michael's! There is a great curriculum, inclusiveness of parents and grandparents, family atmosphere, Catholic education, sports opportunities in middle school, wonderful teachers (Music teacher Mrs. Okamoto is my boys' favorite), and the best Administration. We are blessed to be at this school!  - The Kauk Family (Twins Kindergarten)

The academics are great, and we love the religious teaching and good character qualities taught there. They love it, and so do we! - Lantz Family (Kindergarten and Grade 2)

St. Michael's provides a unique & wonderful learning environment that is enriched with a loving community of educators who teach the religious values we seek to pass on to our children. - Laski Family (Kindergarten)

From Parents During 2020-2021:

We could not be more impressed, grateful, and amazed at the work you and your staff have done for the  “in-person” classes at St. Michael school. The level of organization, attention to detail, communication with parents, and commitment to keeping our children safe is extraordinary. Please know we know you spent your summer working tirelessly on this tremendous task and are well aware of how difficult it must have been to tackle this.  One of the things we finally concluded when going back and forth about whether to send our boys was “they got this” after reading all your plans and backup plans. You covered everything and anything, including things we never thought of! We are forever grateful to you, and please take this correspondence as a most sincere and humble thank you from our family to yours. Mr. & Mrs. Cassell  (Grade 2 and Grade 4)We want to say thank you for all you’ve done to keep our children feeling safe, supported, and loved.  We know progressing them in their education and faith under the circumstances is an unbelievably tall order. The countless hours you have spent adapting, deciding, and praying have not gone unnoticed. We feel very grateful for your commitment to our children and the StMS community. Thank you, specifically, for making the first week of school happen. We all needed that connection to our teachers and friends so very much.  Thank you! - Mr. and Mrs. Whelehan (Grade 4 and 6) 

We truly appreciate all the St. Michael School faculty is doing to navigate this unfamiliar territory, meeting the needs of in-class and at-home learners this year. It’s a juggling act for sure, and you all set the tone for a wonderful experience. We see how hard you are working and appreciate everything!  - Mrs. Allen (Grade 6 and 8)

My family and I will be new to St. Michael's this fall.  We're very excited that our daughter will be joining your seventh-grade class. I just want to pass along how happy receiving the email about the school opening to all students for in-person made my wife and me. To know that the Administration is working creatively to help working families adjust to this time...well, simply put, it's priceless.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. - Mr. and Mrs. Booth (Grade 7)

From Grandparents: 

We live in NJ and our granddaughter is a student in your school. The morning prayers and announcements give us a warm and comforting feeling knowing our grandchild is in God’s loving care along with the StMS family. Thank you for bringing us joy with your messages. God Bless you!  - Mr. and Mrs. DeMeo

It has been my privilege to be with my two grandchildren in the mornings to see the way they do their schoolwork and interact with their teachers and classmates online. I am aware that all the teachers and staff, are putting forth a great deal of time and energy to take care of the children during these unusual times. I am grateful that they are a part of St. Michael School and feel the security of this community. God bless you all!  - Mrs. Baker

My husband and I want to express our sincere appreciation for the administration and the staff at Saint Michael School as you routinely meet and exceed our expectations. The staff along with your leadership have promoted such positivity at the school, and at Saint Michael the Archangel Church. We appreciate the supportive learning environment the school provides, and the dedication to true Catholic values in education. This is why we sought out Saint Michael School for our two granddaughters, and we have been thrilled with the decision. My husband and I have since joined Saint Michael the Archangel Church to show our continued support for the Catholic community.
