Other than the rampant use of alcohol and drugs in the upper school, Saint Ann's is a fantastic institution.



- a
I imagine the school used to be excellent in its own unique way, but it's filling up with less interesting, very PC teachers. The days of Stanley Bosworth are long-gone, but what's left are the drugs, disorganized methods of teaching, and rather contrived "cool" vibe.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Like all schools there is a cross section of teachers. Overall the standard at St Anns is high, with some exceptional teachers available.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Teens often need direction & focus. Homework can help fill some time gaps. Students are encouraged to practice, read & find ways to occupy their own time.

Develops character: Agree


- a
The heads of school & teachers have a strong culture of "hunger for learning" & free spirit. They also exhibit & are proud of the departments record of honesty, open dialogue & self control. The teachers lead by example.




- a
St Anns encourages students to think independently & challenge the traditional views. Students are expected to deeply pursue their passion within their chosen subjects at high school. There is a broad range of electives that motivates most of the students, most of the time.



- a
Kids at this school get high on pretty much a daily basis on the streets around the neighborhood and the promenade. How the neighborhood association or NYPD hasn't intervened is beyond me. (Oh, right, maybe because the neighborhood association has a load of kids at St Ann's. That's right.) The level of privilege and entitlement and is shameful.



- a
Saint Anns is amazing. Its a safe and open place where students can express themselves however they wish to.




- a
As a neighbor who liveson the same street, I am witness to the bad manners and inconsiderate behavior of the students as they congregate outside the school . They are oblivious to passersby and seem to be out on the street at various times during they day with no supervision. Today two young teenage boys almost knocked me over as they crossed in front of me to go into the school. I would not recommend this school to family or friends or to anyone who believes that good manners and social skills are important. These children, many of them are just badly behaved.



- a
Being at Saint Ann's since kindergarten and continuing on to my current ninth grade level, I can honestly say it has been an amazing experience. The teachers are phenomenal! Most are completely over qualified, ranging from Harvard lecturers to published authors, to doctors. If you as a student have the motivation and determination then you will thrive in the environment that Saint Ann's harbors. Contrary to the general vibe that I've gotten with other reviews, the school is only unstructured if you choose it to be. If you spend as little amount of time as possible on homework and school work then the 40k a year is a ridiculously overpriced expenditure. If you put all of the school's resources to good use then you may achieve anything under the stars. The curriculum, if properly applied, can get you past college level courses and into territory that was previously thought to be unreachable in high school. The school falls nothing short of AMAZING The only cons: The gym department isn't the greatest. Semi-con: There are no grade-wide tests. Some teachers give finals/midterms, some don't. The only "grades" you receive are written essays from each teacher on progress in class.
