Building on a 75-year tradition of excellence, the educators at Marymount have crafted a unique learning experience that blends mastery of core subjects with acquisition of the essential skills students need to navigate and be successful in a rapidly evolving world.
At its heart, a Marymount education is student-centered. In
every level—from junior kindergarten to eighth grade—
Marymount students learn and grow in respectful, encouraging, and safe surroundings. With a student-to-teacher ratio of eight-to-one, individualized attention, careful monitoring of progress, and consistent communication with parents ensures that each student’s needs and aptitudes are recognized and addressed.
In the classroom, Marymount teachers utilize a well-thought-out, inquiry-based approach that compels students to participate in their own learning process. They become adept at converting information into knowledge, and knowledge into understanding. Time and again, research has proven that this invaluable skill is the foundation for high levels of achievement in high school, college, and career.
In many ways, the ingredients for success remain unchanged—resilience, determination, adaptability, and a solid grasp of the basics. But in today’s world, our children also must know how to work smarter and solve multi-faceted problems. They will have to utilize technology effectively, express themselves with clarity and eloquence, and collaborate in pursuit of common goals. It is precisely this set of 21st Century skills that Marymount’s learning environment has been designed to impart. The outstanding record of accomplishment by our graduates is a testament to its efficacy.
