Saint Mary School is a school with a "Heart on fire".
Faith development, intellectual growth, right relationship, and education for leadership are our main aim.
In addition, we strive to work together to live out the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph: "We live and work so that all people may be united with God and one another." In embracing this mission of Jesus, the staff of Saint Mary School strives to encourage Christian commitment in children, families, and colleagues.
In an orderly and peaceful atmosphere, our goal is to lead each child toward a realization of his/her worth before God.
Through multicultural awareness, we seek to nurture children's global perspective and responsibility.
From such knowledge springs a child's desire to work toward his/her potential.
The staff provides the tools necessary for students to achieve academic excellence and to function in today's competitive world.
The staff encourages problem solving, making positive choices, developing right relationships, and taking on responsibilities so that students can grow into capable, inquisitive, and faith-filled young men and women.
