School Official Point of View

St. Bartholomew Catholic School is an exceptional Pre-K 4 to 8th Grade Catholic School is a well diverse school in the WDC area. St. Bart's demonstrates the students’ achievements and progresses several times a year through testing, teaching, and communication. The school community and parish are warm and welcoming. Students are taught to serve others less fortunate by practicing the Catholic faith and "service" to others in the community. The students are also well prepared for high school. I highly recommend St. Bartholomew Catholic School to all.

Handles bullying effectively: Agree


- a
This is a Catholic school with a strong emphasis on kindness, compassion, and respect. While there is an anti-bullying policy, there is an understanding of social responsibility and peer awareness. Online bullying is not tolerated.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
A number of children with IEPs are served. Anyone who wants to be a student here CAN be a successful student here. Educating a child involves multiple participants, including parents and when needed, extra resources outside of traditional school hours.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Students participate in a number of service learning opportunities and take great pride in these events. Faith-based education serves children of all religions.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Overall class sizes are small, plus there is differentiated instruction for even smaller groups of 3-4 students. Blue ribbon, certified teachers, and additional resource staff push a rigorous standards based curriculum. As a former teacher in both private and public schools, I can appreciate the teachers' dedication, commitment, and WHOLE child approach. Plus they teach cursive :) The art of writing is not entirely lost here.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Not too much, not too little. Interesting and creative assignments are given to challenge students, not to just repeat the day's coursework.




- a
All four of my children would agree they felt well prepared to navigate the academic, social, and personal challenges in high school and beyond (each went to highly selective private high schools and universities). Now my grandchildren have enrolled and I see the school's continued tradition of developing smart, innovative, respectful, and ethical children of all races and religions. Teachers are certified, facilities are great, supportive staff, and really committed community of parents. It's really a hidden gem in Bethesda.



- a
Good school with small classes and a great community.

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
There is no differentiation at this school.


Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
Principal is more worried about the uniform than in bringing new programs.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
School does not have a discipline plan.
