    "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."

    "Fantastic school that nurtures every student spiritually, academically and socially. Academically rigorous curriculum is proven every year by exemplary test scores."

    "Nurturing environment with outstanding academics. Faculty and staff routinely go 'above & beyond' to help students. Principal knows each child individually."
