14 Parent Reviews for Annunciation Catholic School
This is a very good school and worth the investment in a child's education. The principal, teachers and staff are very professional. The student teacher ratio is very good, incredibly low. It is a small school and yet it offers students choices. It was a bold move to change to using tablets this year
... Read more (Fall 2014-Spring 2015) instead of textbooks but that was not only forward thinking but logical considering what the students will face in the future with an aptitude in technology required to be second nature. I would highly recommend parents to consider this school if they want an excellent private school education along with the freedom to have their children pray and learn good solid Christian values. It is on par with the best Montgomery County public elementary schools, middle schools and private Catholic Schools in Maryland (which I as a parent have had experience with). Read less

My child is new to this area and school and I cannot begin to express how happy I was with both the Teachers and the Administration. They really seam to care about the children. It was the Principal's first year with the school and she seamed like a veteran. She promised at the beginning of the year
... Read more that she would hold people accountable, teachers, students and parents alike, and she stuck to it. While I didn't always agree with her decisions, I respected them. Our last school was all about numbers and money, Annunciation is all about progress! My daughter's teacher promptly answered all my emails and kept me informed of her progress, that did not happen at our previous school. We will be here for a while!!!! Read less

The classroom sizes are great! My son is in the 6th grade this year and he only has 12 students in his class. They also have engrade which helps me keep an eye on his grades on a daily basis. The parent family is also great. This is the best school my son has ever attended. Please come and check it out.

The school provides a strong academic foundation that also heavily embraces the catholic faith. The teachers are truly engaged with their students and strive to maintain a strong collaborative relationship with the parents.

Annunciation was my foundation. It is the only school i've ever been to that left an imprint on who i am today. Its been five years since i graduated eigth grade there and i have to say it was an eyeopening, fantastic experience. I met my best friend there, i met my first crush there, i met my friends
... Read more for life there, and i met teachers that you can't find anywhere else! The teachers are like family, and the atmosphere is so fun, loving, and open to all. The only bad part is i wish there had been more sports or extra curriculars but other than that, i have nothing to complain about, it was incredible, and will forever be a part of my history and life!
