The St. Anne's School Experience
"When I was looking for a preschool for my daughter, I sought out all the schools in the area. I stopped by St. Anne’s School for an application and a young girl lead me to the office and said that she loved it at the school. I saw that she was happy, confident and at ease with adults. That’s what I wanted my little girl to be, and now she is also.
I believe that St. Anne’s School of Annapolis provides my children with an exceptional learning experience in a safe and secure environment. They are learning beyond the basics of education, as well as how to be good citizens and productive members of society with an understanding of compassion and empathy. I couldn’t ask for much more than that.
I like the sense of security and trust that the schools gives to me when my children are there; the knowledge that my children are getting an incredible education; and knowing that they are building wonderful memories on which they will reflect for the rest of their lives."
"St. Anne's School has created a nurturing environment in which students and teachers have what they need to grow: respect, encouragement and high expectations."
"When I think of the type of persons I want my children to be as adults: honest, caring and generous individuals who strive to learn, I am so grateful to be at St. Anne's School where these same values are lived out in the classroom. And while the academic instruction is evident I hear it in my sons' dialogue at home our children are not so much being taught, as they are learning to learn. The teachers at St. Anne's School are professionals; professional instructors, professional nurturers, and professional learners. They set the example of community that is so essential to our children's well-being and growth. The foundation of this community comes from the leadership, the Head of School and parent leaders, who set the exceptionally high standard for the school. As parents, it is our responsibility to support and strengthen this foundation and the St. Anne's School community as well."
"My three daughters attended St. Anne's School preschool and I started teaching there as a long term sub and then stayed on the following year. I searched many preschools for my girls and I fell in love with St. Anne's School. What keeps me here: The talented, diverse staff is very exciting to me, not only are they my colleagues, but my close friends. I have been here for 15 years and I love the families. I have had the privilege of teaching many sibs and I have also been able to watch many of my students move on through high school and now beyond!"
"We were initially attracted to St. Anne's School as a result of a clear connection we felt to its Mission Statement. Our initial meetings with some of the leadership team at the school reinforced our belief that they actually "lived the mission." We continue to be thankful that we made the choice to enroll our child at St. Anne¹s School as they have delivered on everything they promised: a focus on the "whole child" where they integrate academic, social, leadership, and community service skills into their learning methodology; a curriculum and stimulating learning environment that fosters critical thinking; a focus on professional development; teachers who apply the latest proven research on child development and learning; and a school community that is committed to excellence. We believe St. Anne's School is preparing our child to "live a life of consequence." We couldn't ask for more than that."
"I'd love to thank every single teacher for preparing me so well for high school! You have no idea how helpful the Capstone Project was for writing my papers. I have about one a week and I don't know how I would handle them if I didn't have that guidance through my first research paper."
"St. Anne's is committed to transforming lives and building community. In the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, St. Anne's School strives to BE the change we want to see in our world. St. Anne's sees itself as a laboratory for the development of an equitable and just community, where learning to live compassionately and respectfully with others is as important as academic achievement."
