Here’s what our families are saying!
We have been so impressed with the school’s music program and its seamless transition to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The band program, which now offers virtual band lessons, has transformed our dining room into a virtual music classroom each week as our son practices with his teacher via video conferencing. The transition to online lessons has also given us the opportunity to witness the fun yet educational environment Mrs. Poczobut provides to our children. Our son looks forward to his weekly band lessons, and we couldn’t be more thankful for all that St. Monica – St. Michael teachers are doing to continue an exceptional learning experience through this difficult time period.

We cannot begin to express how amazing St. Monica-St. Micheal School has been for our kinder-age child! The hands-on learning approach with subjects including religion Spanish, and everything in between has our son flourishing day by day! There is amazing communication between parents, teachers, and staff as well! You can also see and feel that the teachers truly care and love their students, as well as being passionate about the individual student’s learning. We are so grateful to have found a school that possesses these important attributes. We love everything about this school as well as being thoroughly pleased with our son’s progress and learning experience! We look forward to the upcoming years with St. Monica-St. Michael School!

I’ve had the privilege of teaching middle school at U-32 Middle and High School for the past 15 years. I’ve taught kids from many different schools and backgrounds, and I can always tell when I have a student from Saint Monica- Saint Michael School. From their demeanor to their work ethic, they come ready to learn and be positive contributors to our community. St. Monica- Saint Michael’s students are instilled with a strong foundation that prepares them to be successful both in school and life. As a parent of two children who also attend Saint Monica – Saint Michael School, I’ve witnessed firsthand the quality education the school provides. It’s a safe, tightly knit community of people who all have the children’s best interests at heart.
Eusebio started at St. Monica School in preschool when he was 4 years old and graduated 8th grade in June 2017. He entered Spaulding High School for his freshman year and has transitioned very smoothly. Due to the small size of his class from 6th through 8th grade at St. Monica’s, he had very individualized learning opportunities, which he has benefited from. He has enrolled in all honor classes at Spaulding and is doing very well. When Eusebio was in 7th grade, St. Monica-St. Michael’s partnered with Barre City Elementary School to allow students from St. Monica’s to participate in their choice of sports, for Eusebio, that meant Soccer. Eusebio began his first season on the JV team and was asked to play with the Varsity for their last game of the season.
Our daughter attended St.Monica St. Michael School from Kindergarten through 8th grade. We appreciated the closeness and involvement of the students and families that spanned across all the grades. The older students and younger students bonded during mentoring activities in many subjects and during Mass time as “buddies.” All of the students and teachers in the school know each other, which creates a very special atmosphere. The loving environment and education that she received gave her confidence and prepared her for many things outside of the classroom. She played soccer for BYSA from third grade until seventh, when through collaboration with Barre City Elementary School, she played for the Barre Bulldogs. She was chosen to be a Legislative Page for the State House in 8th grade. All of the doorkeepers and Legislators were impressed with her professionalism, friendliness, and work ethic, which I attribute largely to her elementary school teachers and Catholic school education. Our daughter’s transition into high school has been smooth. She was well prepared academically and socially to be successful in this new, much larger school. She is doing well in her Honor’s level classes and playing sports for the high school as well. She is enjoying being able to branch out from the strong roots that she grew at St. Monica-St. Michael Catholic School. We are feeling very Blessed to have had her start there.
