Stuart Country Day School Reviews

Sending our daughters to Stuart has been the best decision we could have made. Academics are outstanding and the teachers are extraordinarily dedicated. Students are nurtured and encouraged to be strong, confident and compassionate leaders. Small class sizes allow for personal attention. There are clubs and activities to suit a wide variety of passions, and because Stuart is a member of the Sacred Heart network of schools, students have a unique opportunity to go on exchange programs and connect with their Sacred Heart sisters throughout the world. Excellent college guidance routinely places students in top tier universities. Strong traditions and a special community make Stuart a cherished place to be!

Our daughter has been at Stuart for 2 years, starting in the EC and now Lower School. The school is surpassing our extremely high expectations, it is truly a remarkable place. The faculty, facilities, and community are second to none. Our daughter is growing and developing academically and socially beyond our hopes. We can't recommend Stuart enough. Our daughter will definitely be a Stuart-Lifer! And FYI, 10 students out of 60 from the last 2 senior classes have been accepted into Harvard and Princeton (with many others going to Ivies and Ivy-like universities). Can't complain about that!
I've had a really great experience at Stuart! I was really involved with the Theater and English departments, which are amazing and helped me learn a lot, and my teachers and advisers were all super helpful in pushing me to apply for leadership positions. The all girls education experience has been unique and amazing, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
