Over the past four years, I have attended Orchard Lake St. Mary's. I have been taught by wonderful teachers on the importance of being a respectable man. Throughout my time spent there, my academic and athletic accomplishments truly flourished and improved to the point where instead of needing help from other students, I was the one helping those students out. Orchard Lake St. Mary's, for as long as I can remember, went by a statement, "1. God 2.Family 3. St. Mary's" I believe that this is a great example of the preparatory, because we are a very religious institution, but we also are taught to care for and honor our family and St. Mary's.

The staff is awesome and they want you to succeed. There is a great teacher to student ratio. And they have a beautiful campus right on the lake. It is also great that you get to go from building to building for classes. The religious/faith aspect is not overwhelming. It is more educational and is helpful in teaching good choices and good behavior. There are a ton of great sports teams and extra curricular clubs and activities. And even though it is an all boys school, there are many opportunities to meet girls from other schools.
I have had a great experience at St. Mary's Preparatory High School. When I first attended the school, I was nervous and did not know what to expect. My school experience prior to St. Mary's was with 95% African American students. My first day as a freshmen was really good. I met so many people from all backgrounds and nationalities. As my time continued on at St. Mary's, I participated in multiple sporting activities. I learned so many lessons playing sports at. I have gained a brotherhood with young men I will always cherish. The teachers at St. Mary's will always be remembered. They were so nice and really took an interest in me. Whenever I had problems, the teachers did not hesitate to help. So, you ask me how was my experience, it was the best and I will always cherish my experience at St. Mary's Preparatory High School. If there was one thing I would change, it would be upgrading the technology on the schools campus due to its age.
