I believe values come from home, but are reinforced at school. I know that any issue that comes up will be handled in a professional manner by the Principals, allowing the students to be involved and some action will take place. I have also seen good behavior rewarded when students are on field study trips.
Every teacher we have had has been exceptional. They are available by email or in person to discuss my students. My sons' love for math and science is evidence that the teachers care about what they are teaching.
St. Mary's teachers are the best, they genuinely care about each of their students. My students have become amazing writers because of the smaller class sizes. I have always been able to email or meet with teachers when I have questions and get a response within 24 hours. Both of my sons have become excellent musicians because of the classes offered here. They are taking Spanish and Chinese. They both have exceptional computer skills since technology is part of everyday school life to build PowerPoint presentations, make video presentations, computer programming, and work as a collaborative group. These are skills that apply in their future workplace. The sports facility here is amazing. They enjoy playing football and basketball with their friends.
The leadership at the school used to be strong and at this point, only the Middle School head is effective and runs a very strong program according what I have heard. In my own experience, the Head of School, Head of lower school and Head of Early Education are incredibly weak at this time and it is impacting curriculum and the student experience.
