My daughter has made great leaps academically and socially. This school is amazing. Teachers and staff are great. Students are taught to be kind and good citizens. This school should be held up as a role model to other schools in the area.

I have three children in the school this year. 4th, & 2nd grades and a pre-K class. Each class is different but challenging, encouraging and formative. My children are learning manners, they are kinder, more polite because of Mother of God School. They are being pushed to learn and excel while doing it. This is our first year at the school, we are coming from MCPS. I feel that each of my school-aged children is being appropriately challenged where they are, to grow and learn. I didn't feel that way about MCPS.

We have heard many people say, "There's something special about that school." Our four children have all attended Mother of God School. Three have already graduated, well prepared academically for their high school and college education. But a solid education is only part of what is needed to navigate life in our world today. The faith of the students has been helped to be a sure anchor in what we all know is a stormy sea of challenges to morality in personal relationships and professional environments.

I ask her Meredith; how was your day? "She responds" - my day was GREAT mom! I love that she is so happy in Mrs Krull's class.

This school is excellent. It helped me prepare for future schooling very well. When I got to high school, I found being in Honors classes, a year ahead in math, a straight A+ student, and the 9th grader with the highest GPA in my class easy. The teachers are amazing, and they have many extracurricular activities which are growing larger by the year. The classes are the perfect size, and the students who graduate from there emerge well-educated and well-grounded in their faith. However, if you are not religious or not a Catholic, it should be noted that the school does not force religion on anyone, even though it holds weekly Mass and has Religion class daily.
