I have been going to Mary Queen of Angels for seven years. Over the years at Mary Queen of Angels, the whole school is basically a second family to me.

My favorite activities are dancing, yoga, playing on the playground and sports. MQA is my favorite school that I have ever gone to!

Mary Queen of Angels is a family and faith-centered environment where I can learn something new every day.
