We have been blessed to be at Mary of Nazareth for our second year and we and our child is loving it! The teachers are caring and devoted to their students, the setting is beautiful and a reminder of what upper Montgomery County used to look like, and the families create a wonderful sense of community and belonging. We could not have chosen better for our child's education, spiritual growth and community.

Mary of Nazareth has been a fantastic fit for our family - academically, socially, spiritually. We transferred from public school (2nd grade) and we could not be happier with our decision. The teachers are smart, tough and kind all in one! We enjoy being in a community of shared values in which children are encouraged to be thoughtful, honest and respectful. There are numerous extracurricular activities that are available for all grades - soccer, basketball, saddle club, track, cross country, to name a few - this has been a great way to get to know other families.
