St Matthias Apostle School Reviews
This school is unbelievable! Who would have guessed how much success could be packed into one phenomenal place? This year's graduating class of nineteen students boasted multiple scholarship recipients including a full tuition academic scholarship, a choral scholarship, a speech and debate scholarship, a band scholarship, and more. Not only does the school provide students spectacular opportunities in that sense, it also gives them a true feeling of family and security. I recently graduated, and I loved it! It's been called the "hidden jewel" of its area for good reason; caring teachers, excellent curriculum and facilities, and a general sense of humor, compassion, and family all tie together to make St. Matthias one of the best experiences one could possibly have.
As a recent graduate, I believe that St. Matthias is a FANTASTIC school! In the graduating class of 2011, (which consisted of only 26 people) the students earned a full-tuition academic ride, a band scholarship, a visual arts scholarship, two partial-tuition academic scholarships, two Knights of Columbus scholarships, and a Catholic Business Network scholarship. The class of 2012 also pulled in many awards, including another full ride to Catholic High school and vocal/band and Knights of Columbus scholarships.
These excellent results attest to the excellent and committed teachers and staff, as well as the resources available. The school boasts a full computer lab, two libraries (for the upper and lower grades), a music and art room, and a band program. For recess and PE class, the campus includes a basketball court, full baseball and soccer fields, and two play equipment areas. The school is also affiliated with Washington Archdiocese CYO leagues, offering soccer, basketball, t-ball, softball, and baseball teams from intramural to varsity. Other extra curricular activities include an elected student council (from grades four through eight), a newspaper, a chess club, and boy and girl scouting.
I loved my time from kindergarten through eighth grade at St. Matthias. It gave me a quality education in a wonderful atmosphere and I highly recommend it.
