Overall, I give Maclaren a five! They are focused on providing an excellent education for all of its students and creating a community of learners. Through my education here, I have become more comfortable sharing my opinions with classmates and have felt a deeper desire to learn about the world. In high school, the seminars have allowed the class to dive into in-depth discussions together and to take ideas from others to formulate my own beliefs. Maclaren has helped develop my boldness as a person and my passion for learning.

Starting with issues regarding a divorce and court order on file yet the school allowed my ex to violate several times, to being flat out lied to by Mary Faith Hall, this school talks a big game but doesn't meet promised expectations. SNOTTY TEACHERS (not all but most) The unbelievable attrition rate shows it all. Then the damn asking for money, not student fundraisers buy flat out asking for money for bonuses etc. I believe yeacher bonuses should be based on performance not fundraising. Now they are adding k-5 but already had staffing issues and couldn't operate 6th grade tutorials as anything but study hall for most of the school year but lies were stated when questioned. Find a different school it's what we did.
I loved my experience at Thomas Maclaren School. They helped me grow as both a student and as a person. I can honestly say I wouldn't be who I am today without my experience at Thomas Maclaren School. The teachers are some of the most incredible people and instructors I've ever had in my life. It wasn't just one great teacher either- all of my teachers were passionate, caring, and knowledgeable.
