St. Mary Of The Assumption Elementary School

Tel: (617)566-7184
Grades: NS - 8 | 294 students
St. Mary's was established as a parish school in 1899.
St. Mary's offers a rich tradition of Catholic school education for students in preschool through grade eight.
We are a culturally diverse community that is guided by the Commandments of Love of God and Love of Neighbor.
In addition to religious instruction, the school curriculum challenges students to gain mastery in language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies by fostering inquiry, problem solving, and decision making skills.
Teachers develop and support an awareness of the connections between subjects by providing opportunities for student projects and presentations.
We believe that the curriculum should be integrated and reflect life experiences.
At all levels, students are provided with opportunities to explore their talents and interests when they participate in weekly art, music, physical education, and computer classes.
Starting at grade 4 and continuing through grade 8, students are instructed in Spanish language and culture.
All St. Mary's students are expected to work cooperatively, and with respect for one another, as they experience the excitement that accompanies new learning.
