The Mary Louis Academy Reviews

239 reviews
All Categories
I loved all the events such as the Christmas Party, Spirit Night, Cultural Harmony (to name a few) and all the extracurriculars TMLA had to offer. For 4 years, I was a member of the Badminton Team, East Asian Club, and Robotics Team. However, I could not have achieved the success in this school alone. Many teachers and friends have helped me along the way, and I will always remember them. The only thing I would change is for the administration to be more inclusive and accommodating to students of diversity, when it comes to religion, people in the LGBTQ+ community, and the like. Otherwise, a great majority student body is accepting of them.
Review The Mary Louis Academy
The Mary Louis Academy prepares there students for college. I've been given loads of assignments and deadlines. My favorite thing about this school is the diversity and how it feels like a second home. All my classmates are respectful and hard working. Being in an environment where people are positive and hard working pushes me to do better. The teachers make sure their students are doing good in class. They always take time before or after school to help their students. I've had the pleasure to have teachers who were like that and that's why I didn't struggle as much. I recommend this school because everyone makes me feel comfortable, confident, and it helps the students to be ready for the real world.
Going to an all girls school might make people a little apprehensive, but personally, I am glad I have decided to make Mary Louis Academy my home for the last four years. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and would not change my decision if I was given the opportunity. I played on a sports team all four years and I recommend to join afterschool activities because through the clubs and sports, you will find yourselves making friends and connections with people you would have never had a chance to associate with during class. Our school is full of spirit as some of our favorite events during the school ( Spirit Week/ Night, TMLA Christmas, Cultural Harmony, etc.) effectively unite the students and faculty as a whole.
