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.
