St Margaret School5

All of our children have attended St. Margaret School since kindergarten. We currently have an 8th, 7th and 5th grader enrolled at SMS. The maximum capacity at SMS is 300 students and our enrollment is currently close to 100%. As far an academic standards goes, the $10,000's of private high school scholarship money annually awarded to 8th grade graduates demonstrates that SMS academic standards are very high. The faculty and staff at St. Margaret's are fully committed to our children and the development of strong moral and leadership characteristics. St. Margaret School is an excellent choice for families looking for an environment that nourishes the academic and social development of children, based on faith, family, community, and very strong virtues.
Saint margaret elementary school is a small school with few students (about 500),which generates a kind of extra large family, with everyone knowing each other. However, in my opinion, saint margaret school has sub-par curriculum in comparison to other public schools, mainly I would guess because they are not the richest school around. The facilities are passable if a bit old, and with their lacking of air conditioning it can get quite hot there on a summer day. In conclusion, your child's education would be better going to a public school, but, if religion is your focus, then you'd be better off at saint margaret.
a life long resident of narberth,st. margaret's has always been called 'the little jewel'. it seems all the parents have forgotton how rare this school stacks up against the the 'name' schools. my son goes there and I can't think of a better place in this current cultre. class size and friendly staff all dedicated to the childern's needs.a value system second to none.its one great school
A good academic environment. This is a small school, and everyone knows each other. The teachers tend to be very dedicated. Academic standards are fairly high, the level of discipline is good, too. It's as much like a family as a school could hope to be.
