I believe that placing my daughter in St. Anne's Day School was one of the best parenting decisions I ever made. She thrived in the environment, which provided a nurturing middle school experience, solid curriculum, and focus on kindness and civility. My daughter is an adult living on her own with a great job now, and I know that St. Anne's was an important building block in her development. I was a single mom, St. Anne's gave me some financial assistance, and because of that, I have included the school in my estate planning so that one day another child may benefit as well. That is how much the school has meant to me.

As a parent, and a former educator myself, I am amazed daily at the quality of the program and the teachers at St. Anne's School. Both of my children, who are very different learners and very different personalities, have been challenged, cared for, and stretched in all aspects of their growth: academically, personally, socially and emotionally. I have the privilege in my work to visit schools all over the country, and St. Anne's stands out nationally as a top school for those who really understand the education of the whole child.

I work with schools across the US and many foreign countries training teachers, working with parents and students. St. Anne's is such a gem. This is a special place that knows how to grow children, their brains and their integrity.
