The school aims to reach excellence.
To allow all children to be educated until the secondary cycle and take the national exam before going to university.
St Michel National school was founded because there was no school at St Michel (secondary school). We would like to extend our thanks to the mayor and the Deputy for seeking help successfully from the Digicel Foundation. We are now able to a beautiful lycee of 14 large classrooms which has huge benefits to the children and the community. The school is almost finished its second phase of building and will open its dorrs to new students this September.
