My son have been going to Annunciation Catholic School for 4 years not. Each year he grows more educationally, mentally and emotionally. The staff has such support for the students and parents. The class sizes are small which helps with the attention from the teachers. It would be a plus for anyone to bring their child to attend school here.

Annunciation Catholic School provides a loving environment and rigorous academic curriculum for our children. The religious instruction is top-notch and has had a significant, positive, impact on our children's lives. The principal is highly professional and responsive to families' needs, always seeking to address challenges as well as acknowledge successes.

As a parent of two children at Annunciation Catholic School, I have been tremendously impressed by the experience my children have received. The principal, teachers and community/faculty encourages and cares for the students by promoting high self esteem and academic excellence. The curriculum is very rigorous this year and my child has to put in extra hours to stay on task. The Teacher's offer tutoring to children who seem to be having difficulty/ which we love tremendously. They understand what methods work best for teaching children and the small class size helps to maintain order and one on one guidance is a plus!

This is a very sad place, and honestly probably the worse Catholic school in the area. The Principal has no concept of what she is doing, and the teachers seem to be without guidance, or effective guidance. The administration has no idea how to deal with problematic classroom situations, such as bullying, foul language and mean behavior. My children learned the very worst words in the English language, and for the first time learned about drugs and other issues not appropriate to their age in their loosely monitored aftercare program. Despite the small class sizes, my children were still below grade level, compared with any other school, albeit private, public or charter. It was a horrible experience for them. Whatever you do, don't send your babies here!

Annunciation s PK3 class is extremely affordable, comparatively. And it offers FREE before care starting at 7:45 am so convenient for our busy family! It also offers very affordable weekly pizza lunches and monthly hot dog lunches the convenience continues! It has an impressive curriculum. A full-service school, the Pre-Kers go to Spanish, music, gym, and art classes (yes!), have 2nd grade "mentors" who read to them weekly (so cute!), and go on fun off-site field trips (Imagination Stage). We get weekly (!) hand-written report cards on our daughter s progress, and receive regular emails on the units being taught each week. The teachers/staff are terrific! They really care about students, lovingly comforting them when they're hurt, sick, or scared. They provide fun, age-appropriate educational instruction using play-based toys, books, and hands-on activities. Administrators are competent and responsive. My daughter always comes home with big smiles and exiting stories about her day - the true mark of a great program. The student body is diverse, unlike neighboring private schools, and the S/T ratio is low 1:4. We love Annunciation and you will, too!

This is a very good school and worth the investment in a child's education. The principal, teachers and staff are very professional. The student teacher ratio is very good, incredibly low. It is a small school and yet it offers students choices. It was a bold move to change to using tablets this year (Fall 2014-Spring 2015) instead of textbooks but that was not only forward thinking but logical considering what the students will face in the future with an aptitude in technology required to be second nature. I would highly recommend parents to consider this school if they want an excellent private school education along with the freedom to have their children pray and learn good solid Christian values. It is on par with the best Montgomery County public elementary schools, middle schools and private Catholic Schools in Maryland (which I as a parent have had experience with).

My child is new to this area and school and I cannot begin to express how happy I was with both the Teachers and the Administration. They really seam to care about the children. It was the Principal's first year with the school and she seamed like a veteran. She promised at the beginning of the year that she would hold people accountable, teachers, students and parents alike, and she stuck to it. While I didn't always agree with her decisions, I respected them. Our last school was all about numbers and money, Annunciation is all about progress! My daughter's teacher promptly answered all my emails and kept me informed of her progress, that did not happen at our previous school. We will be here for a while!!!!

The classroom sizes are great! My son is in the 6th grade this year and he only has 12 students in his class. They also have engrade which helps me keep an eye on his grades on a daily basis. The parent family is also great. This is the best school my son has ever attended. Please come and check it out.

The school provides a strong academic foundation that also heavily embraces the catholic faith. The teachers are truly engaged with their students and strive to maintain a strong collaborative relationship with the parents.

Wonderful principal. Energetic, active, dynamic, modern, innovative. No, they did not pay me for my comments. Sweet teachers who can connect with my child and many others that I know. Lovely families. Super after care activities many of which are free of charge. Chess, drama, Art and craft, photography and more. My kid loves his school which means a lot.

Annunciation is one of the worst catholic schools in DC. Don't be fooled by the location. I would rather home school my child that send them there. Worst principal, poorly trianed teachers and weak curriculum. Loads of turnover of families in the past two years and what few good teachers were there have left.

Annunciation was my foundation. It is the only school i've ever been to that left an imprint on who i am today. Its been five years since i graduated eigth grade there and i have to say it was an eyeopening, fantastic experience. I met my best friend there, i met my first crush there, i met my friends for life there, and i met teachers that you can't find anywhere else! The teachers are like family, and the atmosphere is so fun, loving, and open to all. The only bad part is i wish there had been more sports or extra curriculars but other than that, i have nothing to complain about, it was incredible, and will forever be a part of my history and life!

I went to Annunciation from 1-8th grade, and I can't imagine going anywhere else. The lack in extra-curriculers is made up for by great teachers, fun and informativer classes, and friends I have made for life. The classes are very small, mine only had 16 kids. They have and aftercare, girls basketball team, library, band, art, music, and computer classes as well. Annunciation prepared me for High School, and the world.

I attended Annunciation from K-8 grade as well. Although I agree that there is a severe lack of extracurricular activities and that teachers can try to be more open-minded, I feel that my years there prepared me very well for high school and beyond. I can't imagine going anywhere else.

I went to Annunciation from K-8 grade. The academics are reaaly good and prepare you for high school. There aren't many extracurricular activities which was something that was always missing throughout that experience
