All Saints' has been a remarkable experience for our two children. They have received a superb education since they started in the pre-k program around 7 years ago. What's amazing about All Saints is that the incomparable education is actually just the foundation. I am particularly impressed with the math curriculum (revamped a couple of years ago by a one-of-a-kind teacher who is a total guru) for the lower grades. In middle school, the annual history projects are truly college level. On top of the exceptional academics, we really value the performing arts program (2 plays a year and countless smaller performances), the character education curriculum that instills self-awareness and compassion, and the inspiring group of faculty who see and bring out the best is each and every child. Our children are flourishing and I am so proud they will be all Saints' graduates in just a few short years.

All Saints' has been an amazing place for our children. They are flourishing. The teachers challenge them to rise to their best, always gently encouraging them. The parent-teacher conferences are always inspiring because we regularly learn something new from the teachers. The faculty at All Saints, particularly in the lower and middle school are nothing short of brilliant. They model the All Saints values of kindness, continuous learning, and much more. Our children love school and the work is becoming more challenging as they get older, with written reports starting in 3rd or 4th grade. There are two plays a year and countless smaller performances throughout the year. Soccer and basketball and volleyball and flag football are just a few of the sports the students play. I can't imagine a better school. I've heard so many parents say they wish they had gone to All Saints' as a child themselves and we feel the same!

Having gone to all public schools myself, I was skeptical at first about the idea of independent school but I kept hearing about how special All Saints was enough that I finally started paying attention. I'm so glad I did! The school calls itself extraordinary, and it truly is in every sense of the word. The built-in components of the program that other schools consider "extra-curricular", the frequency of exposure and instruction in music, art, science, etc., the opportunities for performing arts- it's all so beyond what other schools offer. And their character education program is truly remarkable and done in an authentic, meaningful and lasting way. My child is in preschool and is already receiving Spanish instruction! Most importantly, she is excited to go to school each day, never wants to go home at the end of the day, and is thriving both academically and socially. She loves her teachers and so do we, as it is so apparent how much they love their jobs and their students. She's made friends at all grade levels despite the age range, and we feel connected to the school community on many levels. Knowing what I know now, I can't believe it took me as long as it did to start peeling back the layers of the standard comments of "why send your kid to a private school when Carmel Unified is so good?" The quality of instruction, the level of expectation in regard to behavior, inclusion, kindness and giving back to others... it's just a portion of what makes it so different and so what I want for our children. It's been an amazing choice for our family, and it's worth every penny.

All Saints' offers a remarkable education in an unforgettable community of support and joy. I feel so lucky to call myself an All Saints' alum and was not only wonderfully academically prepared for high school, college and beyond, but I graduated with a strong sense of self and the confidence I needed to succeed in any environment. I hope to send my future children to All Saints'!

All Saints' truly is a special place. The community is great and very inclusive, the campus by the river stunning and the academics are the best on the Monterey Peninsula. They truly look at the whole child and bring out the best. The core curriculum is challenging the students and the specialty classes, from performing arts to the organic garden are outstanding. We could not be happier!
