(5) Student Experience
St. Margaret’s is amazing. The entire faculty goes above and beyond. Our daughter is nurtured and supported in all areas. She loves the ability to try many new things as well as focus on those she loves best. Small class sizes and an all girls environment provides a peaceful setting.
(4.5) School Leadership
Faculty and administration are all involved at all levels of the girls education. Most know our daughter by name and are always there when we have questions or concerns.
Our experience of the teaching thus far has been exemplary. Small class sizes allow the teachers to focus on the strengths and weaknesses of each student individually. When special needs arise they are attended to and worked on in a manner far exceeding my expectations. Our daughter is challenged and supported in all areas and we are so grateful for the teachers we have.
Our daughter is only in kindergarten however the skills and subjects she has been exposed to and able to focus on both in the junior program and this year in kindergarten have been greatly varied. I am particularly impressed with the stem program and how both nature and technology are used to create a balance within the curriculum.
Given the age of our daughter, our experience with this is minimal.
Our experience so far is that the girls at all age levels and grades are very nurturing and supportive of each other. Many of the older girls take time to speak to and show support to our daughter.
(5) School Life
Our daughter loves everything about her school. She is proud to attend and seems very happy on a daily basis.
I cherish the parent community at Saint Margaret’s. It definitely feels like an extended family and given the size of the school it is possible to maintain a closeness I have not seen elsewhere.
(5) School Location
The grounds at the school are amazing. Surrounded by nature while also allowing for field trips on occasion.
