Presentation of Mary Academy Reviews
Rating 3.4 out of 5 5 reviews
Presentation of Mary Academy is a loving school community with high standards and expectations for all the students while still meeting the needs of children who need more time for individualized instruction. Sister Maria, the Principal, is an amazing visionary leader whose care and concern for all children is her number one priority. The staff are totally committed to the students and with Sister Maria create a loving and caring school community. We have had five children go through PMA and would do it over again.
Teachers have such compassion at PMA. The teachers from each grade meet every week to be sure they are all on the same page. They also meet the teachers in the following grade to ensure they are preparing the students for the next year. Excellent communication from the teachers. Homework is a part of the studies at PMA but not unreasonable. It teaches children responsibility and time management. PMA students are well prepared for high school and the real world when they graduate. Students are taught that it's cool to be kind. They do many activities throughout the year to help the community. The principal is leader of the year for a reason! Sr. Maria is always willing to listen to concerns and keeps positive change in the school.
Started out ok but if your child has not attended and been molded into their image at a young age, they will struggle and be bullied by the nuns - particularly sister maria .
Was really bad.. Me and my family were up till midnight every night doing projects. At least 4 projects due every week... Don't send your child here.
Presentation of Mary Academy offers a world class education from Pre-K 3 through 8th grade. They have an excellent program of academics that includes Spanish from Pre-K 4 year old through 8th grade. The school has a gym/arts center. Sports programs include Cross Country, Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Lacrosse. The music program has been invited to sing at Carnegie Hall twice. Test scores are among the best for southern NH. We started at Pre-K 4 and love the teachers, the principal and the Catholic environment. Teachers are caring and hold students up to high standards. Being from southern NH there is not a super diverse population to draw from but there are students whose families come from all over the world. The lunch program is limited but there are plans for expansion within the next couple years. You could not ask for a more supportive or active Parent Group.
