School Reviews

  • Recommended May 12, 2014 - The academic programs are both smart and useful. The teachers are kind and caring and don''t put stress on students to earn the best grades, but the caring shoulder automatically brings the students'' grades up. A far cry from Westminster School in Annandale where my daughter started school in kindergarten a couple years ago. Discipline was rule one two and three I found it to be a little much. St. Stephen''s & St. Agnes School hands down is the place to be! - Posted by Parent
