  • I attended this school and am now a 32 year old man. This school teaches you the fundamental values of how to behave like a decent human being. As a student, you receive alot of attention from the teachers and are not lost in the mix (like a public school). I was, by far, not close to being popular in that school. It probably saved my life, as when I went to a public school...I had people pick fights within the first week. I love St. Matt's. Wish I could have gone through high school there.
