St. Anne's - Belfield School Reviews

57 reviews

Having read many of the reviews, I have to admit that some of them are just not fair at all. I graduated from STAB recently and wouldn't trade my experience there for the world. Teachers are extremely caring and accessible, and classes are not easy, especially the humanities. In the past two or three years they pretty much changed the administration so there are some BS rules, which I admit, but the students here are very nice and are not racist at all. There is definitely a division and between the day and boarding students and the overall diversity is aweful, considering the population of White Americans (they are all great people btw) constitutes 90% percent of the student body with 8 percent being Asian from abroad. I am well prepared for college thanks to STAB, and it is all about whether you make the most of your experience there––if you are willing to step out of your comfort zone instead of complaining on niche.

STAB was a great experience. It really helped me prep for college and the real world. Even though there is a border-day student divide, the overall experience was very good. There wasn't any racism or discrimination at STAB, rather the borders rather not mix with the day students and the day students accept that and mix amongst themselves.
Other than basketball, the sports scene is on a hard decline. By that note, school spirit is very lacking.
The schedule of 3 long classes a day with unscheduled time is great for college prep. Also, the curriculum heavily revolves around lots of discussion and projects which is also great for college prep and lacking in a public school environment. The wide range of students from Ivy league applicants all the way to kids getting straight C's and D's also helped give the school a comfortable social scene.
I know longer go to STAB, but I can tell you the school is not the way it’s portrayed to be. The students are very cliquey, and because of the school’s size, you’re very limited to the number of people you meet, so if you can’t find anyone to become friends with you’re kind of screwed. The schools policies are wack and they overall failed to meet my wants and needs as a student. I dreaded going to school every day. I was isolated and felt like i was surrounded by very fake people. The only good thing I could tell you about it was the teachers and how friendly they were as well as the amount of break time I had during the school day to get work done. However, there have been various complaints about some teachers due to their apparent inability to teach, and many of the teachers I had only stayed at this school for a year. 11+ kids in my grade including myself left either during or after sophomore year and my time there was not one to remember.
