It is a wonderful school that not only teaches kids how to think and they learn a ton. However, more importantly it stresses emotional education and tries to help kids become good people. I have 2 children at the school and they are excited everyday to go to school. We are new to the area and the fact that they have transitioned in so quickly and well to the school has made our change so much easier. The parents are also very committed and involved - but not overly so. If you want to be really involved, you'll be welcomed; if you want to be less involved, nobody judges that either. Marymount is a really special place and I feel really lucky that my children go there.
Now with two children in high school, I look back at the years my children spent at Marymount and am very grateful we made the decision to send them there. Marymount gave my children the tools they need to perform at the top of their classes at two of the most selective high schools in the country. It also gave them the grounding and roots they need to succeed on a personal level. Not every school provides this, but Marymount does.
Marymount far exceeds my expectations in every way! The teachers and staff show dedication and care to each individual student. My children have both flourished this year and seem so much more confident! I would highly recommend this school!!
Marymount has been the best decision my family has made. Both my kids have attended Marymount since Kindergarten. My son is now on his way to an Independent high school on a full scholarship and my daughter will thrive in seventh grade after receiving academic honors in sixth grade.
This school has offered a wonderful nurturing and challenging environment for our children. The families are welcoming and inclusive of each other, as are the children. The Comparative Religion course that students take through the grades is a phenomenal opportunity to help our children understand today's world better. Highly recommended.
