Mulligan Stew Academy is an excellent school. I am a former parent of Mulligan Stew Academy as well as an instructor and two of my three children attended Mulligan Stew. My daughter is an exceptional student and I know it is because of the good foundation that she received at the Academy. She has recently graduated from High School where she was salutatorian of her class. She also secured a full scholarship at the school of her choice. My son is also an excellent student. He constantly score above his grade level on all the standardize test that he is given. I have nothing but high praises for these dedicated teachers and the Administrator. I wish them much success and I just hate that my youngest daughter did not receive her important foundation from Mulligan Stew Academy.

Simply the best! My daughter is now in High School, and attends the best college-prep private school in the region.

As a previous student of Mulligan Stew, I think that the program was/is excellent, and when my son turned 3 I had him attend there as well. He is now ready for kindergarten, and is well above average in his knowledge compared to other children his age. I graduated Kindergarten reading at a second grade level, and completed my MBA in December of 07. I highly recommend the school and its teachers to anyone interested in the child's longterm development, and looking for loving dedicated teachers to proved success.

A superb school. Children are given a full spectrum education, in math, reading & writing, social studies, science, and citizenship. The staff is devoted to teaching and the depth of teaching experience is impressive. The school does have achievement tests, and the students perform above the state average consistently. Mulligan Stew Academy is an excellent academic environment for your child.

I totally disagree with the parent that gave the school 1 star. There are formal lesson plans completed, and a sate cetified curriculum is used. All teachers have a 4 year degree or better. Some have retired from the public school system. The school has been around for almost 30 years. What more certiofication do you need? They do have annual proficiency tests, and the students are always way more advanced when they leave MSA. A large percentage evn get skipped. Parents, please check the facts, and consider the source of all information. My child has been in the school system since she was 3. She has been an A student at MSA since she was 3, and is now 8! Hats off to MSA!

As a previous student of Mulligan Stew I completely recommed this school. After graduating I went on to another school and I am one of the top students in my class. This school gave me the building blocks I needed to achieve any and every goal I want to achieve.

The parents are highly involved the school. The classroom size ranges from 19/1 to 3/1. I feel like the staff really cares about my children personally and academically. The cirriculum is strong. When the students leave the school they enter other schools as advanced students.

Mulligan Stew Academy has provided my children with an excellent foundation for learning in all areas of academics. Since attending there and graduating they have always performed well and taken great pride in their work. The basics taught in the early stages of learning are what this school is about. If you want your child to excell in readin writing and arithmetic, then this is the school for you.

The school curriculum is far below that of most private schools. There are no formal lesson plans for any grade. There's a lot of inconsistency in the teaching method. Most teachers are not certified. The school does not focus on math, science, geography or history. It is a literary school with focus on reading, and language acts. No proficiency tests are taken. The school would be considered a fun place for kids-academics is not the focus. I would not recommend this school.

As a former student, Mulligan Stew Academy has quenched my thirst for academic knowledge. I spent 4 years there and enjoyed every moment of it. I am in my first year of college and to this day I am grateful that I was taught by every teacher there. It is an excellent school and worthy of recognition.

The Pre-K program at Mulligan Stew is excellent. The classroom ratio is small and intimate, which allows more one on one interaction between the student and the teacher. The curriculum is structured and challenging. The teacher's all know all of the student's by name. The parent's are friendly and involved in the education of the children. My son is a challenge at times but the consistency of the teachers' discipline, patience and love have encouraged him to his personal best.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
