This is a dream school. The girls are bright, focused, and friendly. There is absolutely no bullying. Being intelligent is considered cool. Teachers are involved with the students. Classes are challenging and interesting. The girls bond like I've never seen. At the dances, all of the girls and their dates remain classy. There is no drinking or drugs.
Heinously elitist school culture. Absurd levels of parental involvement in academic and school life. GV does not make DC or America great.
We could not be happier with this school. The girls are poised and bright; the academic environment is challenging; the teachers care about their subjects and their students; and the leadership from the administration seems very sound.
My daughter really seemed to blossom at this school. However, I found that the Religious aspect was surprisingly unsatisfactory. A religion teacher was very inappropriate towards certain students. Cussing, speaking of drugs (in a jokingly way), and not preparing them well enough for exams and tests. Other than this, the teachers are great, and the girls are sweet.
Beautiful campus, great people, and classy girls! As a mother of three, I have had to work hard for my children, like most parents do. When my daughter came home from shadowing she was in love with the school. I wanted nothing but the best for my daughter and didnt want her going to some snobby school. Visitation is the exact opposite! The teachers are delightful and very intelligent. The physics program is rigorous and probably the highlight of the freshman experience so far. The sports teams are phenomenal and the sports coach is in charge without being mean! Parents are darlings and there are NO bad apples. Overall, just an extremely delightful school and experience.
Visitation seems to be a school that is more about parents than about educating our children. I'd been forewarned that it has a very elitist attitude - and now I've seen it for myself. I don't see Catholic morals or values in their operations, so I wouldn't expect to see them in their classrooms either.
A great school that really watches out for your daughter. Great friends have been made and she loves the school, arriving early and staying late.
Great academics. They push you to write and analyze better than any other high school students. When I got to college, I got a 3.8 out of 4.0 my first semester without any more studying or difficulty than Visi. The school prepares you well for life!
This is a wonderful wonderful school. The students of Georgetwon Visitation attend a school where they are truly cared for. The faculty and the staff all provide amazing support for these girls. The girls are challeneged in ways they will benefit from, not only in the academic world, but while making moral and ethical choices. The school devotes itself to helping each girl become young women ready to face the difficult world ahead of them. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who wanted an excellent academic experience where their daughter will realize her own given talents and abilities. I cannot stress enough what this school did for me. I will be forever grateful to the amazing people of Georgetown Visitation.
This school is tops in education. In my opinion, when you graduate, your education is equal to 2 years of college. The teachers are top rate and care about the students. Because uniforms are required, the students look like proper young ladies.
