On Jan 3, 2007,more than 370 Form One students from five schools enrolled at St Michael's. The school continues to receive students from SK La Salle, Canning Garden, SK Manjoi 2, SK Panglima Bukit Gantang and SK St Michael 1 & 2.
The next few days after the Orientation Programme, the school continued to register students from schools all over Ipoh including those from SRJK Yuk Choy, SRJK Poi Lam and SRJK Gunung Rapat. During the programme, students were briefed on the school history, the Michaelian Agenda, school culture and the LaSalle brothers. Parents who turned up that day were obviously impressed with the overall aspects of the school.
