St. Mary School

Tel: (609)298-1448
Founded in the mid-1800s, Saint Mary School was the first school founded by the Sisters of Mercy in New Jersey.
St. Mary?s has served the Bordentown community through three centuries.
In the fall of 2000, the sisters took leave of the school, but the Mercy tradition of a loving and caring environment lives on through the work of its lay staff.
The building that now serves St. Mary School was erected in 1888 and entered the new millenium under the spiritual guidance of Reverand Father Michael Burns and the academic guidance of principal, Mrs.
MaryEllen Moss.

Together with our families, we share the awesome responsibility for the total education of the student. Our school is strongly committed to academic excellence. By emphasizing excellence we hope to encourage all students to reach their God given potential. Our faith calls us to be responsible Christians in a complicated world. We have a mission to help our students see the value of justice, peace, and service as is so clearly set forth in the Gospel message. St. Mary School is part of a faith filled parish community. Through participation in parish life we encourage our students to see themselves as members of God?s family. St. Mary School believes that every child can make a difference and calls its students to actively participate in their church, school, and community. The mission of Saint Mary School is a continuation of the tradition of excellence in education, a devotion to the spirit of Mercy, and a focus on the opportunities that lie ahead.

School Reviews

  • Recommended February 14, 2013 - EXCELLENT school. It has a wonderful Principal, caring, loving faculty and staff, and kind, generous students. St. Mary''s has old-school charm with 21st century curriculum and technology and exhibits a friendly family atmosphere. Each grade has a small class size so teachers can give more individualized attention to students. Students really excel here which is corroborated by high Terra Nova test scores and alumni who have really made something of themselves. We have loved the school since the day we attended the Open House and highly recommend St Mary School in the safe, quaint city of Bordentown NJ!! - Posted by Parent
