School Reviews

1 year ago
We''ve been at St. David''s School for five years now, and to repeat what we tell our friends and family when the subject comes up -- it''s the best decision we''ve ever made. We have always had our kids in a quality prep school because we value a top-notch education enough to sacrifice for it. But after years in a school that was not supportive of our faith, we wanted a faith-based school. The sad discovery we made, however, was that many Christian schools did not live up to the academic reputation that we were used to. St. David''s changed all that. There we''ve found both challenging academics (even more challenging than the prestigious prep school we had sent our kids to before), and a Christian worldview. Our oldest gained acceptances to several top-tier colleges, and our younger two continue to love their experience as they move through middle and upper school. It has been worth every penny.
