St. Martin's is ideal for any child that can get lost in a big class. The class sizes are manageable which allows the teachers to spend quality time with each student and enable the children to relax and learn in their own way.

This is an excellent school!. I have two children currently enrolled (5th and 1st grade). The teachers are incredible, very caring, passionate and extremely competent. New leadership (beginning in 2013) will grow this school into the best in the county. Small class size and make up of student population creates a great learning environment. Like all private schools in the area, tuition is expensive but well worth it.

this school is the worst school. All of the good teachers have left and only one replacement is good. I have learned nothing eceipt social studies math, and a little English. the principal has no leadership. All the students and staff and parents are scared of her.

As a student who has gone to this school for many years now, I am very happy with the education I have received. The teachers I have had at this school are wonderful and the classes are fun and interesting. I feel that I will be well-prepared for my high school career. The school is very small. One class only has 11 kids, 9 girls and 2 boys. The class sizes range from 11 to 24. Being in the same class for many years with the same people can be boring to the older students. It's not a very diverse school. Most of the kids are very close. We know each other inside and out. Personally, I have felt quite lonely here because of my shyness. The school does have problems, but they try to sort them out as best they can. There have been issues in the middle school with people's things being stolen in their lockers, but for the most part nothing bad happens here. It really does feel like being part of a family. Everyone knows each other, and we're all very friendly. I have been blessed to go here, and this place will always be my second home. I'm sure all the leaving students will take something wonderful away from St. Martin's. I know I'll take away many memories, the good and the bad.

The number one thing going for this very small school (K-8, with total student population of approx. 220) is the involvement of the parents. Without their involvement, the school would suffer dramatically. Teachers range from below average to very, very good; however, it is clearly a very average overall staff. Every school has its' challenges, and it is how those challenges are managed that makes all the difference. The biggest single problem is the lack of leadership among the administrators. For although several problems exist, the administration is reluctant to admit to the short comings and ill-equiped to deal with them.

I tranferred my two children from another private shcool in the area this year because we were not happy with the environment they were in. I knew after visiting St. Martins that things were going to be different and the change would be very positive for my children, but I did not understand just how wonderful a school could be until we started. I was not accustomed to faculty and staff so warm and nurturing to the children. Communication between the parents and the teachers is constant and helpful. We get an e-mail update from our 2nd graders teacher almost nightly so we know what they are up to and how we can reenforce the lessons at home. Wonderful school, wonderful teachers, wonderful staff!!

I am a parent and have 1 child in currently and another that graduated in St. Martin's. You could not ask for a more caring and knowledgeable staff. The small classes make for a more intimate learning experience!

My son has been attending St. Martin's since Pre-k and he is now in 2nd grade, I love this school! I believe the small classes, excellent teachers, loving, family oriented atmosphere all make this school a hidden gem. The school goes from Pre-K through 8th, is centrally located in the city of Annapolis, has inter-mural sports, and has after school care for kids who parents work. I highly recommend the school.

I am a parent of two elementary aged children who attend St. Martin's Lutheran School. We have lived in three different States and the education that my children have received here far outweighs the other schools. Class sizes are small and the staff is involved and caring.The curriculum is academically challenging (appropriately). The students learn a good foundation of the 'three R's' and build upon that. We have been extremely pleased!

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.

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.
