After attending public, Montessori and private schools in Howard County, I have to say that St. Louis has been the best, most rewarding, experience for our son (and us) since transferring into 3rd grade. The high teacher-student ratio, rigorous academics, foreign language instruction, nurturing teachers and staff, as well as the sports and dynamic after-school clubs have converted our son into child that WANTS to go to school every single morning. Can't imagine a stronger recommendation for a school. While we experienced the more expensive private schools in the past, the quality of St. Louis'' academics, staff, campus and community is every bit as high, if not higher, than the high-priced competition.

I consider myself blessed that my kids go to St. Louis School. The quality of the education is outstanding. The fact my kids are surrounded by others who share their faith and values system is providing them a solid foundation for the rest of their lives. The resources my kids have access to in the classroom, extra curricular activities, and from the support system of teachers, administrators, other parents, and the parish is unprecedented in Howard County. It is the best investment my husband and I could make.
