Saint Mary's School Ratings & Reviews

My daughter graduated from SMS with honors. We chose SMS to give her an empowering all-girls experience and she got quite the opposite. The school is administrative top heavy (causing an oversized tuition for the value) and the two top administrators are men. That should have been our first clue that women and girls on campus are not empowered. If you are interested in the boost in test scores and self-confidence that results from an all girls environment, I would suggest that at least part of that boost comes from attending a school for girls that is led by women. In this day and age, how is there not at least one woman in the top leadership position of SMS? There are two other all girls boarding schools within hours of SMS (Chatham Hall and Salem Academy) that are both run by women. I suggest that anyone considering SMS go there and simply feel the difference that it makes. I was born in 1972 and attended an all girls boarding school where there was a headmistress. I still remember how much I admired her. Another issue we experienced was that while the administration was top heavy, one area where the school scrimped was college advising. It definitely felt as though unequal attention was given to some of the girls regarding help with college applications. This could be related to the larger scandals in college admissions with money paving the way to more help and attention, I don't know but I certainly did not donate to SMS above the tuition we paid and had to work hard to get any help from the college advisors. Finally, regarding the athletics. Recently, SMS made the decision that learning to be a part of a team was less important than winning. And as a result, they have been recruiting athletes from the greater community thus making it much harder for average kids to be a part of the sports teams. If your child cant make the ultra-competitive teams, she can participate in a sport that doesn't cut such as cross-country or swimming, but these are more solitary sports and do not provide the same benefits later in life. If you would like to know that your daughter can participate in a team sport and experience the support and resilience to stress that team sports give, try another school. There are many other private schools with plenty of spots for kids of all abilities because they do not use tuition dollars to recruit athletes.

I would rate my experience and my daughter's experience with St. Mary's School as excellent!

This is a lovely, sweet school. I do recommend it, even though it was not right for our daughter and we ended up leaving. It is a safe place for girls who need the nurturing and support and I would/do definitely recommend it to friends. The academics are extremely traditional--lecture and test. Our daughter was interested in learning about advanced topics and maybe doing research in science (she was a Duke TIP participant throughout middle school) and the only courses offered at Saint Mary's were dry AP courses. Even though all the girls had computers, they only used them to take notes and write papers--no programming or making digital movies as we'd hoped. It sounds like I'm being critical--but Saint Mary's is a sweet, loving school for a girl who wants to make friends with like-minded girls, not work too hard, make good grades (just about everyone is on the honor roll) and have lots of opportunities to participate in extra-curriculuars. No cuts in sports, plays or chorus are a huge benefit that come from attending a school this size!

Incredible. I have friends from all over the world not just all over the States and North Carolina itself. I have learned to be an analytical thinker and ask questions. I couldn't have asked for better teachers, and they care more about me than my scores. People at Saint Mary's genuinely want you to have a good experience and to do well. It's so refreshing. The Honor Code is also such a big part in our community. I feel comfortable leaving my backpack anywhere at all, and it will not be taken or gone through. The Saint Mary's community really does emit such an air of trust, and there's an obvious reason why we refer to it as our community not just our school.

My daughter came to Saint Mary's in 10th grade and had many friends in many different groups and grades. That's one of the beautiful things about SMS you get what you put in. It offers strong academics, athletics and cultural arts offerings. The all female environment is a nurturing and challenging environment for today's young ladies. All in a great school- wonderful staff, diverse population, updated technology while keeping the old traditions.
