“Mrs. Rooney is everything you would want in a kindergarten teacher: she sings to the children; looks them in the eyes when she speaks to them; encourages the children to share; talks them through conflict resolution; fosters creativity and imagination. In her interactions with parents, she is generous, focused, professional, and honest. Her rule is kindness, gentleness and more kindness.”
My son Jacob has attended St. Margaret’s since Pre-K and will be graduating from 8th grade in 2022. The education and devotion shared by this institution of catholic education has groomed him to be an athletic and scholarly young man. With the help of the teachers and administrators of St. Margaret, Jacob was accepted to multiple high ranking area catholic high schools gaining multiple scholarship offers. This is a direct reflection of the dedication of the teachers and staff at St. Margaret’s. I am proud of the young man my son has grown to be and thankful for his experiences and knowledge instilled by attending St. Margaret’s.
Our family has been part of the St. Margaret School community for eight years now. We reside in Lower Merion School District but we choose to send our children to St. Margaret’s because the school fosters a caring, welcoming, diverse and nurturing environment where children are encouraged every day to bring their full, authentic selves to school, do their best, be kind, work hard, be a leader, do the right thing, be accountable, and help others especially those less fortunate. We love that St. Margaret School provides not only an excellent education and rich academic experience, but also opportunities outside the classroom to develop their talents, passion and character including band, choir, athletics, and volunteer opportunities. The faculty and staff at St. Margaret’s truly love each and every student and go above-and-beyond to help them in any way possible to help them learn and grow. We consider St. Margaret School to be an extension of our family and our kids are thriving at the school. Thanks SMS!
