I see significant improvements being made in the past two years. A strong partnership between school and parish, more clubs and sports teams offered, incredible school spirit shared by staff and students. This school is growing!
St. Mary's Landover Hills is an excellent school filled with lots of learning opportunities! I love the way they involve the students in giving back to the community. It's easy to see that the number one priority at St. Mary's Landover Hills is the students. My son is in 4th grade and his teacher addresses his academic and social growth on a daily basis! He's doing much better academically at St. Mary's Landover Hills than he was in public school! The tuition is affordable and there is no limit to the programs that the school is willing to provide to make sure that he becomes a well rounded contributor to society. St. Mary's Landover Hills is the total package!
As a parent of 2 graduates and a graduate myself of St. Mary's, I highly recommend this school. My 2 sons were accepted into the high school of their choice based on the excellent education that they received at St. Mary's. There are many additional clubs that are available to the students. The children's choir, the gospel choir, band, art show and jr broadway productions are excellent. The pastor, teachers and principal are very involved with the students. If you are looking for a great school with caring staff, St. Mary's is the school to pick.
All four of my children attended St. Mary s in Landover Hills from pre-school through 8th grade, the youngest just graduated in 2013. This school has solid academics, and the tuition compared to other private schools in the area can t be beat. The school has a very nurturing and friendly environment. Religion is a core subject area, and children attend mass weekly to reinforce the learning taught in the classroom. Their study buddy program allows for the partnering of younger students with older students lending itself to a Big Brother/Big Sister atmosphere and reinforces the value of respect for others. They rank nationally in their math program, have a phenomenal art program, and impressive talent is displayed in their choirs and annual Jr. Broadway plays. The athletic program is lacking some luster, but they are working to gain more student/parent participation in this area. I was extremely pleased with the education my kids received; it definitely prepared them to be successful both academically and socially in their Catholic high school years. Thank you teachers!
My daughter will be entering 4th grade at St. Mary's School in Landover Hills. Since Kindergarten, she has had very caring and informative teachers who have challenged her academically. The school is also a good social fit for my daughter. She enjoys all of the teachers and her classmates. The school has a couple of bands, a few choirs, and performs Jr. Broadway plays annually - activities for which most of the children participate in regardless of grade. Unfortunately, the sports program isn't very good, but I hear they are working on improvements. If I could recommend one change, I would like to see the faculty and staff become more involved in Home and School related events. The children LOVE to see their teachers interacting with them and enjoying themselves outside of the regular school day.
I have a child in PRE-K 4 at St. Mary's. I visited many schools before choosing St. Mary's. The PRE-K Teacher is excellent. She truly cares for each student and is attentive to each child s strengths and weaknesses. She offers parents guidance to work on any weakness and to build on strengths. She school is also building up their athletic program as well. The upper grades perform at the highest levals in Math at local competitions. My youngest will be enrolling in the fall and I can see both my children continuing through 8th grade. The school is very active in the community and the teachers and staff are very welcoming. The school encourages parental input. It is also very affordable. I would highly recommend.
St. Mary's School is an excellent academic institution. My chidren attended St. Mary's from Pre-School through 8th grade and received a phenominal education which allowed them to be accepted into the Catholic high school of their choice and then on to the University of Maryland (which is very competitive these days!). The curriculum is challenging and the faculty, staff and pastor are very supportive and always available. I would highly recommend St. Mary's Catholic School!
Horrible educational quality. Public school would be better because they don't really even teach anything religious.
This is an excellent school i just wish that they could provide more classes and extracurricular classes and more sports
My 3 and 5 year old children will be starting this fall 2010 in the pre k-3 and kindergarten programs. I have visited the school many times, had conversations with the principal and her assistant on numerous occassions. The staff so far have been very caring and concerned for my childrens' well-being. My husband and I were given suggestions for working on my 5 year old's phonics and reading over the summer and it has turned out to be great information! He is really enjoying the active learning website that we were offered. We received summer packets yesterday in the mail with additional suggestions and summer homework for the kids to get them started prior to the fall. So far so good! I am really looking forward to being a part of this community. I will keep you updated!!
My daughter went to another school before st mary's it was awful. I was doubtful but this school turned out tobe terrific. The pk-4's teacher are outstanding
My daughter started Pre-K (4yr old) this year and this school is Amazing. Great teachers, academics and very caring staff. I searched 6 months for a school and i'm glad I choose St. Mary's of Landover Hills! You have nothing to worry about with this school =)
My son has attended St. Mary's School of Piscataway for the last two years. The academics at this school is amazing. The reading program is one of the best in the state. In first grade, he was already learning Spanish and using the computer. The classes are small and the teachers are exceptional. The only downfall is that extracurricular activites are limited because of the school's size and limited resources. They do offer fall/spring soccer for sports, but music is only offered to the 7-8th graders.
its a great school! ill be graduating from there this year and i will miss everyone!
