    I recently went back to Stuart for a visit, my daughters graduated a few years ago. It brought back so many wonderful memories and reminded me why we choose to send them to Stuart. I listened to an impassioned presentation by one of the faculty, he emphasized the school's commitment to educating the whole child, including being certain that the health, mental and physical, of each and every child is also a focus in what has become a challenging world for them to negotiate. Their amazing curriculum and leadership opportunities for girls are even better now then when my girls graduated, and they were exceptional then! My daughters appreciate this special place and understand what a wonderful environment it was for them to grow. They remember fondly their teachers and the commitment the faculty made to their success. Thanks Stuart, and keep up the amazing work!

    As a long time Stuart parent, I am startled by some of these reviews. It is clear to me that many of these negative reviews are written by adults who are pretending to be children. Why?
    We have sent both of our daughters to Stuart. I cannot imagine sending them to any other school. They are both receiving an outstanding education in an atmosphere that cannot be found in any other school in the area.
    We have found the faculty to be passionate, caring, and true experts in their field. I give the school a lot of credit for not keeping faculty/administration whom they feel are not a good fit for the school.
    I will never understand the reason for people to leave nasty, anonymous messages. That says a lot about one's character.
    Thank you Stuart for all you do to make it the very best place for girls!
    We transferred our daughter from Stuart and she was recentnly tested for placement in math. We were shocked that she is barely meeting expectations at her grade level! She has had other testing that puts her as "gifted", but now her new school says her basic skills in mathematics are behind her age and ability. We liked the teachers at Stuart very much -- they are sweet and caring -- but are really surprised now and feel like we should let other parents know before paying such high tuition.
