    Sending our daughter to the St. Michael preschool was one of our best parenting decisions! She has grown so much spiritually and academically. She loves preschool and we are confident she'll be ready for the challenges ahead in kindergarten and beyond.

    I am very thankful for St. Michael and there commitment to outstanding academics and authentic Catholic teaching. Having the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist is a true blessing! This makes us unique to other Catholic schools in the area and really sets us apart.

    We feel blessed that our kids are at St. Michael. The teachers and families are wonderful. The education is excellent but most importantly Christ is at the center of their education. We started in a good public school system and we knew there was something missing... spirituality.

    I couldn't imagine a better learning environment or family atmosphere than St Michael. Both of our kids love going to school and are embracing all aspects of their church life.

    If you want teachers who truly care and work as hard as it takes to meet your child's needs this is where you want to go! I've never met a more caring group of people who take their jobs so seriously! My children have been receiving a great education year after year!

    The academic instruction as well as the religious component at St. Michael School are top notch. My children love St. Michael School and we feel a truly amazing sense of family there. Parents are encouraged to get involved throughout the school and the atmosphere is full of life. Students are kind and courteous and staff members are very responsive and helpful. The preschool program at St. Michael is fantastic - academically challenging but also nurturing. My daughter is excited for preschool every day!

    I have been a staff member at St. Michael School for over three years now. The Community is incredibly supportive of the education happening within the walls of this school. Students are eager to learn academically and have thrived within the differentiated environment provided by the teachers. They want to be the best they can be by living the virtues. I'm proud to belong to St. Michael's!

    After 3 quarters at SMS I am happy with the education my child is receiving both academically and spiritually. We picked SMS because of it's strong teaching of religion combined with great academic expectations. The principal is very present and willing to listen to any concerns a parent has. We hare very happy with our decision as is our child.

    I am very concerned. With the change in administration several years ago the school went from a spiritual religious AND academic school to only a school focused on religion. Academics have clearly fallen. Teachers have changed dramatically. The school is just a shell of what it use to be. You would be in error paying tuition for a mundane education. In this day and age you need faith AND academics... It's not here!

    We moved to Columbus two weeks before the 2012-2013 school year. We meet with many different Catholic Schools and discovered that St. Michael's School was the best. We specifically moved to Worthington so that our children could be close to St. Michael's School/Church. We were so happy to see a Church and a school moving to be more conservative when so many are trying to be more open to social pressures. If you want your children to be grounded in their faith well educated and respectful young adults you will choose this Parish and this school.

    The new administration lacks a combined focus of academics and religion. Religiously it is extremely traditional... academically it has fallen to sub-par. In the last two years the staff has changed dramatically and now does not have a enrichment/gifted program nor an algebra program. The enrollment now is under 500 (previously over 570). Very disappointing in this day and age of a need for strong academics... need to included both.

    We moved to Ohio 1 year ago. We reviewed and interviewed 5 different Catholic schools. The reasons we chose SMS was because of the friendly and helpful secretaries the Sisters (Domincan Sisters) school size and respectful students. We were very impressed with the academics this year. The reasons we send our children to Catholic school is for Faith Respect and Safety. In our opinion this school was outstanding in all of those areas. I love that this school instills a love of faith a genuine respect for others and a staff that is contiuously looking to help the student. We feel very very blessed to have the Domincan Sisters. There are 4 of them they are in full habit and so wonderful to be around. The children are shown a love of God daily. There aren't enough words to describe how much we love it here. I'm quite sure it was why we ended up in Ohio. Our kids love it too.

    My family and I moved to Columbus 7 months ago and chose St. Michael's School for our 6th grader. We have been very pleased with the structure and academic environment of the school. The staff has shown tremendous concern for the students well-being and have impressed me despite some fairly significant staff changes this past year. I recommend this school.

    Didn't know how bad this school was academically until we transferred my child to a public school. Math and Science both lacking in this school. Class size is another issue here.
