Alumni reflects on her time at school and why she chose MG for her son

Mission Grammar has been serving families and scholars for the past 132 years. The deep roots of the school can be seen in the architecture of campus but also in the generations of families who send their scholars to Mission.  We had the opportunity to speak with one Mission Grammar alumni, Kiesha, who’s son, Shayne, is now in the 5th grade.

When thinking back on her time at Mission Grammar, she remembers the community of friends she built, still keeping in touch with many of them today. She recalls the values that were instilled in her, praying the rosary in the garden, a tradition we carry on today. Due to her own positive experience, when she was looking for a school for her son, she thought of Mission Grammar right away. She wanted to ensure that Shanye had a community at school, where he could make lifelong friends.

She has seen that dream come true for her son during his time at Mission Grammar. He began his time at our school in K0 at 3 years old. Along with her son’s growth, she has been impressed with the academic excellence of Mission Grammar, noting the rigorous curriculum, even through the pandemic. Keisha is happy to have continued to find a sense of community at Mission Grammar, a quality that has lasted generations.
