School Reviews

  • Recommended September 03, 2014 - My wife and I are so blessed that St. Mary''s continues the strong educational heritage of the Catholic church. As parents of two current students, we have found St. Mary''s to be an open, friendly, engaging and wholly professional school with excellent teachers, staff, facilities and curriculum. We look forward to many great years at St. Mary''s and plan on enrolling our youngest there soon. Thank you St. Mary''s for all you do to educate our children, body, mind and spirit! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - When we decided to move my eleven year old to a private school, we visited every private school in Jackson. At St. Mary''s, there was such a peaceful feeling when we visited the school. Everyone was so friendly and genuinely helpful in every interaction, from the first phone call of inquiry to today. I love that parent involvement is such a big part of the school. I love that they communicate so regularly by email so I can keep up with things that are going on. I love the accessibility to my son''s homework, grades, etc. online and up to the minute. My son has been welcomed with open arms even though we are not Catholic. He is happier and more relaxed at school than he has ever been. If you are considering private school in Jackson, at please at least give St. Mary''s a look. I think you will be impressed. - Posted by Parent
