Stuart Country Day School Reviews

For the high tuition one would expect to see more teachers at Stuart with advanced degrees. Moreover, only two of the three division heads have advanced degrees. I think it is very important for so many reasons that, given the importance of the role, a division head would possess an advanced degree beyond a bachelors. Stem is lacking: throughout my middle school years I experienced a lack of supplies necessary to complete my assignments. To me diversity is just not a priority at this school. There is continual turnover of teachers at this school. Clubs are scheduled during the school day and for me "scheduling" interfered with participation in clubs. Bullying through exclusion (mostly fueled by jealousy) is definitely a concern. Many teachers appear to be from the public school system. The food is good but typically runs out unless you aggressively get before others.
Review Stuart Country Day School
To our family almost everything about the Lower School was excellent not to be surpassed by any other lower school. Following Lower School academics, instruction and culture were to our family a huge culture shock and a disappointment. We felt there was an overemphasis on project based learning which led to a lack of progress/learning in core subjects. From our perspective, Stuart has acquired the feel of a public school but, due to its private school status, lacks the protections that the public system can afford. We did not experience respect for diversity at Stuart or the fostering of a safe environment for our daughter.
My children really enjoy the school. As a parent, I feel my children's education has been inconsistent depending on the teacher(s), i.e. One year great and the next year mediocre. The STEM programming is not very strong and some of the backgrounds of the teachers are not as impressive as other private schools in the area. This may be why the expectations of some teachers are lower than that of other teacher.

The school has good racial and ethnic diversity. The over emphasis of religions other than Christianity and the Catholic faith is bothersome.

I have come across one teacher who is negatively biased against children of color. This may not impact all people reading this review, but it may have some baring on others within certain groups.

All in all, the girls will receive a good education. However, I one lives in a school district with a good rating - they may consider sending them to the public school.
