Saint Marys Hall Testimonials

“Saint Mary’s Hall provides the best high school education in San Antonio, and there is no other place in San Antonio with the type of students and faculty that Saint Mary’s Hall has. The school is definitely an academic community. The Drama/Speech & Debate Program was a special part of my Saint Mary’s Hall journey. The program allowed me to experience both the fictitious Sweet Apple, Ohio and the very real cities of Boston, Nashville, and Chicago with my classmates. Along my journey, I met passionate and committed performers and teachers, and I am honored to have been able to experience it.”

“As parents of children in the Upper School, we feel it is incumbent upon us to give our children the best education possible before we send them out into the world. With the influence of a sound learning environment and wonderful instructors paired with excellent sports and extra-curricular programs, Saint Mary’s Hall helps us to meet our goal of developing well-rounded young adults. We have really seen our children blossom and feel so proud that they are a part of this school’s tradition of excellence that was also enjoyed by their mother, grandmother, aunts, and cousins!”

“There are so many opportunities available to students like me at Saint Mary’s Hall … like community service. At SMH, service is an important part of students’ lives – it is both highly encouraged and appreciated. Because of Saint Mary’s Hall, my journey has included more chances to serve than I could have ever imagined; and thanks to this experience, I will continue to serve throughout my life.”
