Hands down the best girls school in NYC. The leadership of the headmistress is second to none. The academics are top notch.

Rock solid academics and a civilized and welcoming culture within the parent body. Our daughter has really blossomed at Marymount. The school has over-delivered on every promise made.

My experience at Marymount was life changing. I started Marymount in 8th grade with slight dyslexia. I had zero confidence in my academic ability. The teachers at Marymount were so patient and nurturing that I quickly came out of my shell, studied hard and gained the confidence I needed to attend a great college then onto grad school and now have a successful career on Wall Street. Wonderful, wonderful school!

Marymount is a wonderful school, with strong academic program and strong moral values. My girls love going to school and so do we, as members of the Marymount parents community. With the expansion of the school campus the school is extending it's science and math program locations and much more.

Marymount School is a true gem in New York City. It is academically competitive in a warm and nurturing environment. It feels like our second home. The faculty goes out of their way to find each girls strength and make them shine. It is worth every penny.

Marymount is an astounding school. The excellent academics combined with love and moral teachings, make it the best school in NY. My daughter has never been happier. And neither have we.

Marymount is a wonderfully rigorous school that never ceases to challenge their children. Simultaneously, it was a place my daughter could always call 'home' because of the constant care and respect.

this school is the most warm, nurturing but still disciplined school you could hope for. it is truly special and has that something extra that we felt the other schools we visited were lacking.

Great nuturing environment. Weakness for 2003 graduating class was the college advisor which was ironically the most important person for this class. Other than that, your daughter will have a terrific experience if she becomes a Marymount girl.

This is the number one private school for girls in New York City. There is a network of international Marymount schools including London, Rome, and Paris. The academics are second to none and there are extensive extracurricular activities. There is little to criticise if one seeks the best education for a girl K-12.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
