Mount St. Mary's Academy Reviews

I attended Mount Saint Mary's from kindergarten through 8th grade. I could not be more pleased with the education I received. The Math and Science taught here, enabled me to test out of Algebra and Physical Science allowing me to enter into honors Geometry and Biology as a freshman. The Grammar and Literature helped me to be successful in honors English. The small class size allows students to get the help they need, as the teachers are always accessible. My parents were worried that maybe the school was too small and it would hinder my ability to be succesful in a large high school or college. I was Valedictorian of my high school and now a Biology major in college.
Thank you Mount Saint Mary's!

I loved how the classes were close together and very challenging, despite small class size. The teachers were very personal and I got a lot of one-on-one attention and challenging from them. The academics offered were always very high level and there were many options for all levels of learners. Even though the classes were small students still each received their own locker, making it similar to a public school experience. Having the same students in the same grades every year as they moved up does get tiring, but students are also very close and upper classmen regularly interacted with the younger grades. The Catholic side of the education was integrated well with religion classes and Chapel opportunities but at the same time it was not pushed on students and students were allowed to formulate their own beliefs rather than being force-fed information. Overall it was very friendly and I felt at home because I knew every student by name, regardless of grade.
The three subjects the school primarily focused on were math, science, and spelling/vocabulary. We spent very little time on history, Spanish, and grammar. When I advanced on to a college prep high school, I knew nothing when it came to grammar and Spanish. Considering I received the Spanish award when I graduated, you would think that assume that Spanish would be a relatively good class for me. I knew nothing when it came to basic grammar skills and I had little vocabulary. When it came to my English class freshman year, I had to teach myself grammar skills that I was supposed to have learned in sixth grade. As a school, they should focus on all subjects equally and not selectively. Also, they enforced political opinions upon the students at a young age. Though most of us were raised to believe those political opinions, the school should not enforce those opinions on the students.
