Not a good choice for a school especially if your child is younger. They jam the younger kids into a doublewide and its a bit chaotic to say the least. Not a good feeling from the teachers either. Not a good fit for my child and would not recommend this school to anyone. The pre-k staff doe not know how to deal with active children.

My child has been attending SMM for 7 years! What a great choice we made. Excellent teachers, strong leadership, and involved parents all combine together to make one great school. We are not just a school, but a family. Challenging academic programs that helps everyone thrive.

My child has been attending SMM for 2 years now. We moved to the Wilmington area for her to attend the Brandywine School District but we felt the school district had let us down. We continued to look for other options and came across SMM. I must say, the first thing that stuck out for me was the closeness of the school and how the teachers and parents look out after all the children. I also felt they had more time for one on one studies since they don't have as many behavioral issues. My child loves to tell us her new learnings each day and can't say enough about the teachers and their kindness.

my child has been attending SMM for 2 years. i am impressed with what he has learned over the last 2 years. the teachers are great. i am glad we decided to send our child here. it was a tough decision because we were new to the area and did not know much about the schools. i am very happy with our decision and look forward to our future at SMM. we have all made alot of new friends and learned alot.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
