School Notes:

  • In Mother of God School's commitment to graduating students who go forth "Bearing the Light of Christ," our students have many opportunities throughout the year to attend mass and to integrate their faith into their actions. In addition to studying the core academic subjects, our students also receive instruction in Religion, Spanish, Art, Music, PE, Computer and Library. Mother of God School also participates in the Archdiocesan Band Program and provides an Extended Care program. While being a Catholic school, Mother of God School is still rich in diversity of ethnicity and welcomes Christian children of other denominations. Please come by and visit us!

School Reviews

This school is excellent. It helped me prepare for future schooling very well. When I got to high school, I found being in Honors classes, a year ahead in math, a straight A+ student, and the 9th grader with the highest GPA in my class easy. The teachers are amazing, and they have many extracurricular activities which are growing larger by the year. The classes are the perfect size, and the students who graduate from there emerge well-educated and well-grounded in their faith. However, if you are not religious or not a Catholic, it should be noted that the school does not force religion on anyone, even though it holds weekly Mass and has Religion class daily.
