    Overall, we have had a very good experience with SLS. While clearly expensive, the school has outstanding facilities and teachers. There are so many high quality courses and other educational and extracurricular opportunities available to students that any inability to be sufficiently challenged is on the student not the school. We have found almost all teachers highly trained, fully engaged and readily accessible. SLS is not overly academic or overly athletic or overly artsy - it does a nice job balancing the overall educational experience with ample resources and activities for all. The school’s administration is quite competent and responsive although we have noticed a recent bias towards political correctness that is not reflective of the New Canaan community. Finally, let me note that some reviews highly critical of SLS are either from someone with no knowledge whatsoever of the school or are merely a parent venting because their child was not offered admission.

    My daughter has had an incredible experience at St. Luke’s School - both socially and academically! She has been challenged by fabulous teachers and made incredible friendships with a wonderful and diverse group of students! The school has helped teach her more than just academics but has taught her empathy and the importance of giving back to your community. The administration has been incredible in guiding her to independently navigate through any issues she has come upon and she has grown so much in her confidence and leadership ability. St. Luke’s was the best decision we have made for our daughter.
    I love St. Luke's. The teachers are all welcoming and supportive. You are always able to have a conversation with them, about school or other topics. The academics are profound! The variety of classes you can take is incredible. Sports are not the strongest at St. Luke's because the students here focus on this academics. A number of college counselors help you through the process, which eases up the tensions a little. Overall, the school is an A+, for its academic standards and overall comforting and supportive atmopshere.
