So often we speak about the value of community at Benilde-St.Margaret’s and the importance of recognizing each individual. To know a student does not mean to know only their academic capability. Rather, to know a student includes the ability to recall multiple personal facts about that student as an individual. Additionally, research shows that:
Benilde-St. Margaret’s has helped me thrive as an individual, guiding me throughout my high school career with passion and professionalism. It provided me with opportunities that helped me stand out from other college applicants. As a valedictorian for the Class of 2018, I can say that BSM’s academic and sports programs are exceptional and have shaped me during my time here.

When your colleagues, students, and their parents feel like family, you know you are home. For 34 years, I have called BSM my home away from home. We are a close community who walk together through the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and all the adventures in between. We are family.
Back in May 2012, on my regular morning carpool jaunt to BSM with "my" five freshman boys and I had our typical conversation where we discuss a "topic of the day." This day, as we were winding down their freshman year, I asked: "What is your favorite memory of freshman year? And, what is your least favorite memory? Why?" To this inquiry my son, Jonathan, responded, "Oh, that's easy! My least favorite memory is Jack's (Jablonski) paralyzing injury. My favorite memory is winning the state hockey championship for Jack!" I followed up asking why.
“There is just something different here.” That phrase has continually jumped out at me over the past few months at Benilde-St. Margaret’s. We have been hosting events for families designed to help them learn about our school as they consider enrollment. Last month, our team officially welcomed a large number of new parents that will be joining us in the fall.
