School Reviews

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.

My daughter is in the first grade at Mary of Nazareth.I have nothing but praise for this school. My daughter has exceeded my expectations in reading and math and really looks forward to attending school everyday. Her teachers are great and they really care about their students. Mary of Nazareth has been a great fit for us.
