    "When it was time for my husband and I to choose a school for our children, I knew St. Matthias was the place. As an alum, I knew first-hand the type of extraordinary experiences my kids would have here as well as the solid, Christian foundation they would receive. SMS is built on: Faith, Caring, & Excellence. These characteristics set St. Matthias apart. My children are in an environment that allows them to grow spiritually as well as academically; learning what it feels like to be part of a church and school community. The teachers at St. Matthias are smart, caring, and passionate. They are teaching the students character development, decision-making, and helping them build a strong-self esteem. It's for these reasons along with the parent-teacher, teacher-student, church-family relationships that make St. Matthias rise to the top. Daily, my kids are academically challenged, growing spiritually, and most important of all they come home with a smile. Thank you St. Matthias!"

    "We have been a Saint Matthias School family for four years, and it has been the best decision we've made for our two sons. They are receiving an excellent education in a Christ-centered environment. SMS is true to their motto of Faith, Caring and Excellence. We love the teachers and opportunities our children have outside of the classroom. We are grateful for the positive values our children are learning that will carry them throughout their lifetime. This is truly a community where all are welcome. Thank you Saint Matthias."

    "St. Matthias is an amazing school. My wife and I 6 years ago visited over 20 schools. We started at SMS and ended our search back at SMS. It has been the best decision we made for our daughters education. The teachers, the staff, and the school community have been so great to us. The level of dedication to giving our children the best education is priceless. The parish community and level of dedication to educating our daughter in the Roman Catholic faith has also been so important to us."

    "We are second generation SMS family, with my husband and brother-in-law both being alumni of the school. The teachers are worth their weigh in gold, providing my two boys with personal attention based on their needs, individual talents and the attention to details of the curriculum - which I love. The Principal knows both my kids by name. The school's motto is Faith, Caring and Excellence and they practice what they preach. My children are not only receiving an excellent education, but they are also learning how to be more spiritual, community driven individuals. My children have been attending for 4 years. I recommend St. Matthias School, in case this review has not made it clear!"

    "The school is large and clean. The rooms are very bright and well lit. But the teachers are not friendly with the kids at all. They have a very cookie cutter approach towards education. From my experience, if children have trouble settling down in PreK, the teachers make a very big deal out of it, and keep complaining to the individual parents. If the child is not completing their tasks assigned, no one will encourage the kids. This school is for self motivated children. Very negative environment. One boy used to cry everyday in the class and they used to call the principle and nurse to show how the boy is disrupting the class. (4 year old kid). No one bothered to calm that poor kid down. Some parents who volunteered for lunch, tried and helped calm him down. No one to one interaction with the kids from the teachers. I would not suggest this school for elementary level of education."
