    "Dear Class of 2013 Graduate, Your parents must be exceptionally proud of your success despite being bullied in your class. I admire your tenacity and perseverance in your academic studies and growth. Everyone knows who the successful students are and who the bullies are. It must be terrible to be a parent of one of the bullies. I am so sorry you had to endure that nonsense. As a parent of one of your classmates, I urge to continually focus on your dreams, be successful and remember that goodness always wins! Good Luck to you in high school!"

    "I am a current student at St. Monica and I am about to graduate at the end of May. I have enjoyed my time at St. Monica and although we do have some problems with bullying, the teachers do their best to help the victim. I should know seeing as I was a victim of bullying myself. St. Monica has academically prepared me for high school. I am in my high school's scholarship program and I am taking all honors classes."

    "My kids have been at SMA for over 6 years now, I have experienced exceptional teaching, caring faculty and can see everyday that my children are learning. It is not a perfect school, but what school is. Would be great to see MORE parent involvement so it is not always the same group and so that we can unite if we feel there are changes that are needed. Again, that is not the schools fault but ours as parents. Sorry some parents feel there is a bullying issue, but while that is a school issue, it stems from the home. I would (and have) recommended this school over and over again."

    "I also think it unfair to rate an entire school based on some of these reviews. My children also love this school. It can be very loving and nurturing. The problem is when you don't "fit in the box" you may have a problem. The academics are great, teachers too. But, as a junior high parent, I have seen some things fall through the cracks that should not have. I unfortunately, was a practical eye-witness to what happened to that special needs child. It says something for the leadership. This could be an absolutely wonderful school, but they definitely have a "sweep it under the rug" policy. They may have 411 students (410?) (an odd thing for a parent to know) but they should have leadership that values each child, and rather admit to, and fix, their mistakes, rather than being of the mind, we are filled to the rafters, we can spare one or two."

    "I would not rate this school on the below reviews. I cannot comment on the below incident but just remember there are always 2 sides to every story. What I can tell you is about my own experience with SMA. We transitioned here 2 years ago and it is a great school. I think we overwhelmed the school a bit with so many transfers in .. we are at full capacity at 410 kids. My kids adored their old school but they have found a new home here at SMA and absolutely LOVE IT... There is no perfect school. What I can tell you from my experiences is the faculty loves the kids, the faculty makes coming to school fun, the faculty are very involved members of the parish, the school has the support of the parish, the Pastor LOVES kids and WANTS us here, their enrollment is at full capacity with the heaviest on the younger grades, the environment was a very welcoming one from the very beginning when we were just at the Open House looking at the school, the kids here are very confident children ... and more importantly the school and parish are ONE .... This is a very loving and nurturing school."
