Dear Parents, Thank you for considering Annunciation Catholic School. At ACS we seek to educate the whole child in concert with our parents. Our academics strive for excellence while still including "extras" like Spanish, music, art, and PE for all students. We are a 21st Century school that has not lost sight of the essential fundamentals. Our greatest fundamental, of course, are the values we help you to foster in your children. I hope you will email or call for a tour. May God bless and keep you. J. Mullarkey, principal

We are looking forward to the start of another school year. My daughters can't wait to get back to their friends and their teachers. My fifth grader is a little nervous about going to the upper building, but she can't wait to try out for basketball (she's been practicing her dribbling.) If you want a great academic school with a great atmosphere, this place is it!

This has been our first year at Annunciation and we love it. Our son is excited each day to go to Mrs. Kenny's kindergarten class. He has made great friends and we have seen noticeable progress in his learning and behavior. Oh and he loves Run-Walk Club and we have found that parents are very friendly. Annunciation is a great Christian place and we plan to be here for the duration.

Annunciation is like an extension of my family. I have had two children at the school and one is graduating this year to go to BJS. I have been very happy with the teachers and the preparation my children have received here. They care about the children and they work with me to help them improve and it shows! It is a great place to raise your kids.

Horrible!!! Please do not send your child here! Notice that after bad reviews there are several good reviews all on the same day or one day apart? They do not follow Christian values here. The staff is rude and the communication leaves a lot to be desired! My child has repeatedly been bullied and physically assaulted by other children and it 's ignored!!

Annunciation provides an excellent education focusing on both the academic and the spiritual. They challenge students academically and have a strong STEM program. Students are involved in community service. The school provides a nurturing environment where students can grow to their fullest potential.

ACS is an outstanding school. The teachers are like family and the students are very welcoming to new students. My children came from a Catholic school up in Detroit. I was worried that they would not fit in, but the students befriended them almost immediately. I have been very happy with their education over the last two years. My oldest is nearing graduation and we could not be happier.

Annunciation Catholic School is like a family. Everyone knows everyone else and we stick together. I love that we have the buddy system, the older kids are buddies all year with a younger class. Our kids are a part of student council, patrol, and other clubs like the chess club after school. Not only do they get a great education with caring teachers, they have fun after school too. And, activities are on school grounds so I am not driving everywhere!

Since the first time I walked on the grounds of Annunciation, I felt like it was an extension of my family. The faculty, staff, administration, and parents made us feel welcome. It is excellent academically and forward thinking. My kids are set to attend Bishop Snyder HS and I know from what I have heard from parents and teachers at BJS, my students will have a strong educational foundation. I am really happy that I chose to have my children sent here.

Annunciation Catholic School is a great school to assist our family in achieving goals for our children but also our family. It is a wonderful environment for our children to grow and flourish, surrounded by Christian values and students with similar expectations. The academics are challenging and continue to encourage our children to use all their talents and skills to meet the current requirements. We love this school and all the families that help to make this a wonderful place for our children to receive their education.

I have two children who differ in personality and approach to academics and both have thrived and grown at ACS. We have been a part of the ACS family for a long time. Both of my children started at ACS in PreK and one is now a junior in high school. My high school child was well prepared for life as a high school student. Academic achievement, critical thinking skills, independent and cooperative work skills, study skills, and technology skills are all things that she took with her from ACS to high school. We have found ACS to be a loving community of families and teachers who enjoy being together, care for one another, and worship together in a richly spiritual environment.

This school does not meet its mission statement or act as an extension of our church community. It is for a small group (the principal says "college bound") only -- not for any children with any area of struggle. My child's class had about 9 boys and about 30 girls -- what happened to the boys? I am sorry to say this, because I actually help to finance the school through my church. Curriculum was excellent, but no help if a child doesn't get things quickly. I heard there was tutoring, but when I asked for help for my child, none was available.

We were at the school over six years. We loved the teachers and made us feel like part of their family, but the leadership of the school has left us unhappy. We withdrew our children before the end of the year because my child and several other children were afraid of one child and the leadership of the school was afraid to draw attention to the problem. Although, they prefer to send other children home for not following a minor dress code violation but not for bullying. I am not sure I follow the logic behind that. I would of kept my children in the school until 8th grade, but the health and safety of my child came first.

I agree with the comments about good and challenging academics, however I also agree with the comment before mine. I would strongly suggest that any child needing anything more than the "traditional and basic - one fits all" academics and culture go elsewhere. The school is good if your child fits their mold. We have been there for 3 years, and while we love the academics, we do not like the overall ridged culture. I personally know many people who have had the same experience, and I hope they will speak out to help change this about the school.

I would rate this school without a star at all but I had to click on a star in order to leave a review. I would definitely agree with the post dated on May 28th 2008-which, in my opinion, is very sad being that the same negative information still applies 4-5 years later. The principal attitude is one that believes she is better than others. She's very rude and doesn't respect, care of appreciate special needs children. When asked if the school accommodate special needs children, she immediately stated that there are schools for special needs kids and all the room is occupied by "typical children". When asked if they would every consider it being it's such a big school, she stated "that's not our area". So, rather than accepting all of God's children, and having respect for parents, she doesn't and is extremely rude and unwelcoming!

My three children have attended ACS. It is a great, affordable school that welcomes all faiths. It offers an excellent academic program, an award-wining fine arts curriculum, as well as athletics. The school's standardized test scores were highest in the state in science and social studies this past year!

Awesome school; My three daughters have been there since Feb 2006. Very strong academic program and very strong parent involvement. Great school. However, is very low on athletic opportunities until 5th grade. Overall, great school and highly recommend.

I did not have a good experience here. I have always educated my child in private school, and after moving to Middleburg, enrolled my child in Annunciation. I found it to be incredibly rigid, with no real creativity. The rules are stifling, and there is no real respect for the parents...follow their rules or they just take points off of your child's grades. Also, there is not respect for any kind of special needs. I couldn't even get weekly reports for my child who was struggling under the incredible 'systems' and 'procedures' that they use which she was completely unfamiliar with. If your child is average, with great organizational skills, go here, they will do fine, but if your child is gifted, or has ANY special needs, do your child a favor and enroll them anywhere else...public school would be better than this.

My high school freshman was well prepared academically for high school upon leaving Annunciation. The art and music programs have improved greatly over the last few years. Having Spanish available helped my child in the first year of Spanish in high school. The school does not meet public school levels in athletics. The league is comparative to recreation league athletics. For those who have children looking to pursue athletics for college scholarships, Annunciation would not help prepare your child. Parent involvement is a must.

Variety of enrichment classes such as computers, spanish, music, art,. Parents are required to provide 20 hours of volunteer hours per year. The kids are awesome, polite and well mannered.
