    This was my son's first year here and we are glad we sent him. Teachers and staff were very welcoming to us. The teachers did a great job balancing celebrations with academics. From what I understand by talking with other parents the principle has no tolerance for bullying. There is great emphasis placed on treating peers with respect and any conflicts that may arise get resolved. My son came home happy and made excellent academic progress.

    I believe the school and the teachers are excellent. The teachers try their hardest for every student and generally speaking your kids come home happy. When comparing the work to that of other schols in the area it seems as though the children are about 6mth - 1yr ahead of the public schools. To the review below A big challenge for private schools is learning disabilities or developmental delays. The school aren't funded to support to much assistance in that manner. In a public school they around 13pp when you average it out. Alot of that money goes to those with disabilites. MCS school charges around 6500 the funding isn't there to support certain needs.

    Before you choose a school like Monsignor Clarke make sure you have no family history of learning disabilities. If you do it probably isn't the right school for you and it's heartbreaking to have to switch schools midstream. When visiting Monsignor Clarke do you get the impression that the leadership's agenda is to nurture and bring out the best in every child or be an enforcer? The teachers are fantastic you couldn't ask for better but they can only be as good as they are allowed.
