St Marys Episcopal Day School5

St. Mary's offers the perfect blend of challenging academics in a nurturing environment. Our kids are excited to go to school every day and the teachers help each student reach their potential. Headmaster Laird knows every student by name and greets them daily at morning drop off. We've been part of the St. Mary's community for five years and are confident that choosing this school is one of the best parenting decisions we've made.
If I could give this school zero stars I would. My child doesn't attend there luckily but I felt the need to tell what happened to my children who were playing in a playground with about 4 kindergartners from this school. It all began with them bullying my 2 year old daughter for no apparent reason she started to cry, run over to me and point her finger at the boys who were being very rude to her. I reassured her it was ok we will go play on the other playground. Well then the boys started coming to the toddler area where I had my 2 year old and 5 year old. One of the kindergartners started using foul language and being inappropriate. I confronted the teachers or whoever was watching them about the behavior. He admitted to saying inappropriate curse words. But then nothing was done and he continued to play. After that they were vverbally bullying my son.Mocking him.For NO reason at all.I then approached them again telling them I had to leave the playground because of the children and bullying. They didn't do ANYTHING and it was a joke. DO NOT SEND YOUR KID HERE! we go to a great school and my son has tons of friends, loves to play baseball.I have never seen this behavior in my life
All about the money and not about the students. Sadly it values parental net income above all other parameters. The admissions "evaluation" is merely a cover for determining family comittment to long term capital campaigns.
This school is truly very special and the best bang for your buck. It is not inexpensive but the quality of academics, the teachers, the environment and the administration are top quality. I can't say enough. Excellence found here!
