I have three sons all have attended or still attending St Mary''s Landover Hills. My oldest two boys started in the 4th grade and now are freshmen in College. I have a 7th grader still attending and I wanted to take a moment to comment on how well behaved our Saint Mary''s children were during a recent field trip. I volunteered to chaperone the 6th and 7th grade classes to GMU to see several one act plays. I was very impressed with the student''s behavior during the performances.They were respectful and engaged for each play. I have to note that there were several schools in attendance yesterday and students from other schools were not as respectful. Some were placing their feet on the back of the seats in front of them or kicking seats in front of them or rudely talking during the performances but NOT our children. It was a pleasure to volunteer .The students represented the school nicely.

St. Mary''s Landover Hills is an excellent school filled with lots of learning opportunities! I love the way they involve the students in giving back to the community. It''s easy to see that the number one priority at St. Mary''s Landover Hills is the students. My son is in 4th grade and his teacher addresses his academic and social growth on a daily basis! He''s doing much better academically at St. Mary''s Landover Hills than he was in public school! The tuition is affordable and there is no limit to the programs that the school is willing to provide to make sure that he becomes a well rounded contributor to society. St. Mary''s Landover Hills is the total package!

I go to St. Mary''s and am currently in 6th Grade. I''ve been in St. Mary''s since Pre-K. There are many opportunities in St. Mary''s. They have lots of great activities to choose from. Every year, a new activity is added. All of the teachers are very understanding. They''re always there if another student is struggling in class. They understand what each and every student has gone through, they help them get through it. My parents love St. Mary''s, as my 2 other brothers also go to the same school. I would highly recommend St. Mary''s of Landover Hills.

I have a child in PRE-K 4 at St. Mary''s. I visited many schools before choosing St. Mary''s. The PRE-K Teacher is excellent. She truly cares for each student and is attentive to each child s strengths and weaknesses. She offers parents guidance to work on any weakness and to build on strengths. The school is also building up their basketball program. The upper grades perform at the highest levals in Math at local competitions. My youngest will be enrolling in the fall and I can see both my children continuing through 8th grade. The school is very active in the community and the teachers and staff are very welcoming. The school encourages parental input. It is also very affordable. I would highly recommend
