St. Michael the Archangel High School Reviews

St. Michael offers opportunities for students of all races. While the school itself struggles with diversity, St. Michael has taken precautions and enforced strict rules helping minorities. Furthermore, St. Michael being a Catholic school, faith is extremely important. Not only religion teachers, but all teachers implement faith into their teachings. Moreover, sports are a great way of bonding. Football games are a great way for the school to bond and become closer. All the coaches want you to succeed individually, but most importantly, as a team. The coaches and teachers teach the students how to lead and become a 'Warrior'. Lastly, St. Michael is great for offering opportunities for the future. Personally, St. Michael has led me down a good path for my future and has taught me things I will never forget. St. Michael will not push you down a path but opened the path for you enter. It is your choice whether you walk down it or not.

One of the great things about St. Michael is that they make the transition from middle school to high school very smooth and easy. They make high school feel like a family and everyone is included in everything. Another great think about SMHS is that it helps students play in multiple sports while being a student. Many of the teachers work with the students to make sure that their grades are up to high standards but make accommodations to play sports. The school is not as big as other schools in the area which means that even as a freshman, students are able to play varsity sports. Also, students are not forced to pick just one sport but can as many as they can handle. The teachers are very dedicated to their jobs and will do anything to help the students. The students are also emerged in a rich environment of Catholic faith which helps every student grow.
I'm an international student came from Viet Nam that seeking a better education. I’m currently a Junior in Saint Michael the Archangel High School, which is a fantastic school to be in. The education that I have been getting is tremendous since different English was a big problem for me. For 3 years of enrolling in the school, I have received a great education, language is not a big part of my problem anymore, I have friends and treat me no differently than other students and I enjoy being here.
