    "My first year at The Montfort Academy in Katonah honestly surprised me in how much I loved the school. The school did not have the bells and whistles of any other established school but it was special. The people there were incredible in their giving-hearts and the warm welcomes they gave to literally anyone who entered the building. There were no cliques, no popular crowd, everyone was friends with everyone. Since moving down to Mount Vernon, the dynamic of the school changed dramatically, cliques slightly formed and certain people did not talk to other people. But, the activities became more official and organized. The school started becoming more like other schools. The first year was tough because Montfort merged with the recently closed school, Blessed Sacrament. The students from Blessed Sacrament were very different from current Montfort students, so the adjustment was tough. I did not initially like the change because the school I went to in Katonah was almost like a safe haven. In the past two years the administration has worked to make Montfort into what it was meant to be. Watching the change of the school in its transition over the past three years has taught me more than I would have ever learned if the school had only stayed in Katonah. Now the incoming classes have become much more competitive and selective. I was disappointed that I did not have the same experience as my older siblings, but I know I have gotten much more out of the school. Going to school at The Montfort Academy was extremely beneficial to my formation but it is not something that I would want to do over again. It has prepared me for the next stage of my life. I will miss it and the things I've learned will definitely affect the decisions I make for the rest of my life."

    "The teachers at The Montfort Academy are truly unique. Some of them are the most intelligent and devoted people I have ever met in my life. Since The Montfort Academy is such a small school a majority of the work is done by volunteer effort. The teachers do not hold back on this regard. Some teachers come early to school to help a certain student or take away from their break time in order to give extra help. This goes for about 90% of the staff members. The effort of teachers is consistent, but some teachers are not the most engaging. Some of the teachers are articulate and successfully teach using the Socratic Method, others have so much knowledge but have the tendency to talk at the students creating a boring class. Overall though, many alumni have told me that The Montfort Academy curriculum is highly competitive and a perfect preparation for what they see in college. The way they learned in high school is very similar to college and they find themselves to be more prepared than the majority of their peers."

    "The student body is great. But members of the staff can be super sarcastic and rude. They treat you like nothing sometimes because they know they will get away with it. Most teachers and admin staff are pretty nice though and will try to do anything to help you if you need it."

    "Being a religiously affiliated school, many students were very accepting, as well as teachers, but a few students were outright bigoted. Among larger classes, students were split into cliques and there was very little diversity, both admitted or unspoken."
