    "This school is wonderful! The teachers are outstanding and the principal is loving but strict. St. Monica School teaches more than just a rigorous academic curriculum, they teach the kids to have self confidence, compassion, and a positive self image. There is a reason this school has been teaching kids for over 50 years!"

    "Our son has attended St. Monica Parish School for 8 years now, and all I can say is, THIS SCHOOL IS A TRUE GEM! If you're looking for a school that offers top-tier educational programming (Science, Technology, Math, SS, Lit/LA), in a faith-based environment, with small class instruction, you'll find your treasure here!! Students come from all over the area (Mercer Island, Bellevue, Renton, Seattle, Issaquah, and Sammamish) to be part of this wonderful school community. We continue to be impressed with their commitment to excellence!"

    "We have been thrilled with St. Monica Parish School. The teachers are wonderful and the classes small. The school uses a rigorous STEM + the Arts based curriculum with full time Spanish, Science, Art, PE and Music teachers on staff. In addition to the regular teachers, St. Monica employs a Reading and Math Specialist to work with all levels of learners, from the children that may need an extra challenge, to those that need a little extra help to keep up. The parent involvement is outstanding. It seems that everyone is helping out in some way and happily. There is after school care available on regular and drop in basis. After school programs include robotics, Math Olympiads, global reading challenge, chess club, beginning and advanced band and CYO athletics. There is a real sense of community at St. Monica. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend St. Monica! We were lucky to have Principal Wilson join us this year - She is an inspiring and caring leader that greets all the children by name. Our School population is about 50% Mercer Island families and the rest come from Seattle, Bellevue, Issaquah, Renton, Sammamish and Kirkland."

    "St. Monica is a wonderful school and community. I have two children at this school. This was out first year. I couldn't have asked for more! My children were immediately accepted and thrived. They have many friends and feel confident. The teachers are dedicated and very caring. Each child has their own spelling test in each grade. All children are supported on their path. One size doesn't fit the mold! The curriculum is challenging and progressive. Our entire family has been embraced and the parents are extremely involved and the entire school community knows my children and cares for their well-being. Don't look elsewhere. You've found the school!"

    "I am a former student of this school that cannot believe the high ratings many parents are giving. I found the staff to be inflexible and judgmental regarding anything that disagreed with the school's religion. I had many questions about the religious material they were teaching that went unanswered and I was punished and penalized for thinking critically. This is not a school to send your kids if you ever want them to develop skills in the actual SCIENTIFIC world. I still believe in God but I am glad my parents sent me to a non-catholic high school afterwards because this school has extreme bias towards the bible and against science. If you want your kid to read the bible without questioning anything, and have no individual understanding of their own faith, then this is a good school. Academics are average. But if you want your kid to develop critical thinking skills, go elsewhere, this school punishes that and I am two grade levels below my high school classmates in math and science because of St. Monica's bad program. LOOK ELSEWHERE."
