SMA Danvers is an excellent Catholic school on the No. Shore and offers a great education as well as wonderful extra curricula activities! We have had our children there since preschool and they have excelled! The preschool teachers are loving and creative. We love the K-8 model, because the older students are "buddies" to the little ones, which is great for all! The teachers are very supportive and engaging and always ready to offer extra help if needed. Middle school students use Chrome books for assignments. There are many service projects which give the kids the opportunity to live out their faith by helping others. SMA Theatre club is fabulous (grades 2-8) and their shows/ musicals are amazing! The school has a very involved community of parents and we have met some wonderful families over the many years our kids have attended. Our kids have gotten a great foundation for the challenges of high school!

Our children have been successful in high school,college and their careers because of the strong academic and religious foundation that have received from St. Mary of the Annunciation School.

I have sent 3 kids to SMA and have been so happy with the education my kids have received. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a faith based education and to be challenged academically.
