Mount De Sales Academy Reviews

I have loved my experience at MDS! Every grade is a close knit family, as they have likely been attending MDS together since 6th or 7th grade. My classmates have become my closest friends, and I have grown to love them even more through sports, such as volleyball and lacrosse. They have also encouraged me to succeed academically through the school’s highly competitive atmosphere. My teachers at MDS have impacted me tremendously as they have set high academic standards for me and taken a personal interest in my life beyond school. They have challenged me and ensured I will be more than prepared for college. Furthermore, MDS has enriched my high school experience through events and trips, such as Powderpuff, field trips to Atlanta involving field trips to the Bodies Exhibit and the Shakespeare Tavern, and to Australia and New Zealand, a culturally and academically enriching summer trip. I am extremely honored and grateful to have had the opportunity to attend Mount de Sales.

Mount de Sales Academy gives its students the best it can offer. The administration is fantastic and succeeds in making sure that each and every student is ready for the next step in education. Mount de Sales values academics highest, assuring that students can get personal help from teachers when they need it. New programs such as the iPad initiative and the movement to ban plastic waste throughout the campus show that Mount de Sales is ahead of the curve when it comes to introducing new technology and ideas into everyday life. As Mount de Sales evolves as a school, it continues to improve everyday student life in new, innovative ways.
I love the diversity- race, religion, political affiliation, ideas etc. It is the most diverse entity in our city! I think it would be a wise choice for anyone who wants their child to be prepared for the twenty-first century.
