Messmer Catholic Schools Reviews

As a transfer student, I would say that my experience has been pretty average. I went into the school expecting them to prepare us for college, and they did do that with the variety of college resources from the counselors. One thing I would change would be the variety of sports available to students. They have the basics like, football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball, track and cheerleading, but I would like to see that they open up the possibility with having a tennis team since they partner up with shorewood for football anyway.

It a great school to go to if your are trying to go to college. It prepare you for the long days and papers during your college career. It is very strict on education, but also have many outlets for you to get help if need. The teachers and staff will do there best to make sure you will learn and pass the class. The culture of the school is kinda dull but it’s improving by the year. Although it’s a catholic school it will not force any religion on you , and will respect your beliefs. This is a great school for kids who are serious about learning
I really liked how Messmer is committed to teaching students to the best of their ability and determined to help students to strive for excellence. Even after graduation, Messmer will always be there with an open hand, ready to help out any student in need of help or assistance. Overall, Messmer is a place where the feeling of family is present, and being part of the Messmer family is a great feeling to have.
