Liberal middle class parents tend to shy away from religious schools, fearing that academics take a back seat to discipline and correctness. Marymount does not fit this stereotype. While there is discipline and a dress code, there is also cultural and even religious diversity. As an independent catholic school, Marymount is not supported by the diocese. The environment is mellow and nurturing, and during the years my daughter attended, the circle of families included the B'nai B'rith rabbi and the Greek orthodix priest.
The only drawback is that the intimate size of the school ultimately limits support for gifted students. My daughter was very happy there in 6th and 7th grade, but by the end of 7th grade she begged to get back to GATE class in the public school system.
