A small, private Catholic school in katonah, ny. The school has drastically changed in the past few years and students who have left are EXTREMELY bitter. Full of new, qualified teachers and a student body which is school spirit and very kind. Many extracurriculars such as soccer, basketball, softball, competetive swimming, chess club, drama, robotics, baseball, track, debate, choir, yearbook club, and more. If you attend, or have a family member attending the school you can attest to it's stong communal and familial spirit.
student: did you see all those rude posts about our school, The Montfort Academy?
student2: yeah that's why i'm writing this definition.
The Montfort "academy" is not a school. It is in an old broken down building. It has 50 students and 2 sports. Montfort will lie to you and say that they have a bunch of sports like swimming and baseball. However, in reality they have only soccer and basketball. Not only is the building broken down but on top of it they rent the building and "campus." plus, the "janitors" don't even clean and when they have to clean they complain about it and tell people to stop being dirty. They also don't offer history to freshmen, so instead of global you take great conversation which is basically studying philosophers. Also, the teachers don't teach, they tell you to read something from a packet and then the next day you come in and are supposed to ask what you didn't understand instead of them just teaching you it. Montfort also lacks any electives except for Greek, Latin, or Italian, but the Italian teacher barely speaks English. Now we get to the students, nearly all the students in Montfort are socially awkward and the few that are not usually leave after the first year realizing that they made a terrible mistake. The 1 or 2 that do not get out are because their parents buy into the whole "classical education" nonsense that is really an excuse for not having money or smart boards like normal schools. If you are thinking about going there, do the smart thing and choose not to.
(actual event in the Montfort academy)
Normal kid:"Hey dude, there's no teacher, let's just close the door and talk for the rest of class."
Other normal kid:"I'll get the door."
Montfort student:"I am going to go get a teacher because we are not receiving academic learning."
This school, hardly can be called a school drags you in their "classical ways", another way for them to say BROKE. There are currently 60 kids, at the most in this school. They only have chalk boards and have classes like christian womenhood and great conversation. And they don't even have a lunch program.
They just let girls into this school, but they make them sit on either sides of the classroom. At lunch the girls have one table on one side and the boys have another. then the 4 seniors (all boys) sit by a piano in the back.
Your not allowed to sit down in class untill after you pray, THEY NEVER FORGET, most of the time in english but sometimes latin. then church (where you wear a tie and blazer if your a girl and guy everyday) every thursday. And when your like TGIF you have to pray some random prayer for 20 min after school.
The schools small so you cant get away with anything. Kissing anyone results in a suspension. If there lucky they might have a sport that they vote on. one team practicing 3 times a week, and if theres not enough kids or equipment, bye sports. which they only have a game or two anyway.
Kids who are bullied in middle school and have no where else to go all get put into this school. Good luck finding someone normal that you can talk to, and at least goodlooking. only 2 guys and about 3 girls are at the least tolerable to look at.
