St. Michael's Catholic School Ratings & Reviews

Excellent school. I have been with the school for 5 years now and have watched as the new principal has made significant changes in not only staff but in the curriculum. Technology and literacy have become the focus. I send my children there for the immersion of Christian culture. The whole focus is on Catholic principles and character - this is priceless to me.

"Teachers have commented that they are happy and feel supported by the administration."??? I don't know what school YOU are reviewing, but it's not St. Michael! This "administration" is responsible for the LOWEST enrollment in the history of the school.

Looks as though this has become a place to argue back and forth. If a school has this much drama on a website, we can only imagine what's going on inside the building. We received word that at least 6 faculty members are leaving. That's huge for a small school. Four of them were longtime employees. Three are retiring, and yet the new principal only made an effort to recognize one - not only did she announce it with a "mention", but with a separate letter and a celebration. Why did the other 2 not earn that same respect? If you will notice, all of the last 8 or 10 posts here are back and forth, either saying how bad this principal is for our school, or a defense for her. Something has gone awry. The enrollment is the LOWEST it's been in the history of the school! I hope our diocese replaces this principal before it's too late. To Mrs. Elmore and Mrs. Kiser...God bless you both. Thank you for all of YOUR years of service too, and your love and devotion to our children. You were the ones with true hands on with the love for our little ones. Your retirement is acknowledged too; if not by the school then by the parents of the children you've loved! If parents can't see what this principal is doing to St. Michaels, then your in denial. You are going to be devastated when the school closes its doors.

I remain a committed parent at this school. We have gone through some trying transitions. Four principals in four years with different personalities and goals have not been easy. This affected our enrollment but we are bouncing back! This year, our principal Mrs. LeVesque invited feedback from parents about what we wanted to see for our children. She also met with teachers over the summer to get their feedback on what they needed in the classroom. Knowing the changes in leadership we went through, she was very thoughtful in what changes were made this year. I have been very happy with the changes (morning dismissal procedure is an example) that she implemented. She is solid in her education background and the teachers love her. She supports them, mentors them and her door is always open. She is doing a great job and has provided the stability that this school desperately needed. She works tirelessly to market the school, give tours, hold meetings and communicate in a timely manner. She addresses any concerns that she becomes aware of. She supports parents, PTO and attends events such as the fall festival, father/daughter dance and winter concert. With the absence of leadership these past years, there are some parents that need to take a step back and stop thinking that they run the school. Mrs. LeVesque is very professional with demanding parents. She is fair and treats us all equal, whether the parent is a doctor or a housewife. My children love school and they love their teachers. There are many activities at the school for all types of interests and our PTO hosts fundraisers that support the entire school. After school clubs are very popular and include Lego, Chess and Robotics. This school has something for everyone.

The ONLY school I want my children attending is Saint Michael's. This little school is a Gastonia treasure and icon, with almost 75 years of history behind it. What makes a school like this successful? The teachers! My children have received the highest quality education and are advanced well beyond their public school peers. Many of the teachers have been there for a long time. This stability is important. They have become experts in their fields, and I look forward to the lessons and traditions they have established with my younger child. It is rare to see teachers so devoted and giving of their personal time and resources. A few notes everyone should know: You do not have to be Catholic to attend. The tuition, as far as private schools go, is very affordable, and assistance has been available. High school teachers often rave about how wonderful Saint Michael's students are, and they expect more from these higher-achieving students. Spanish lessons are given weekly, even as young as Pre-K! Things are still done the old fashioned way here- recess, field trips, and less emphasis on state testing, testing and more testing. It is absolutely more about the children and their needs than the data. It may be old fashioned, but it is also tech savvy with modern amenities like Smart Boards and Chrome Books. I know there are free options, but this is an investment in your child's future (and yours!) and their happiness and well being.
