Mary of Nazareth has been a fantastic fit for our family - academically, socially, spiritually. We transferred from public school (2nd grade) and we could not be happier with our decision. The teachers are smart, tough and kind all in one! We enjoy being in a community of shared values in which children are encouraged to be thoughtful, honest and respectful. There are numerous extracurricular activities that are available for all grades - soccer, basketball, saddle club, track, cross country, to name a few - this has been a great way to get to know other families.
