School Reviews

As an alumni of Maria Regina, I am extremely proud that I had the wonderful opportunity to send my children here. The quality of the Christian-Catholic education they received/are receiving is excellent! The principal is amazing in that she is dedicated to making sure each and every student who graduates from MRS is college-bound! The faculty and staff are dedicated to the task of helping to raise our children to be the future leaders of America! I am grateful to the foundation this school has helped my children establish for their futures, as they are ALL Top Honor students! MRS provides a safe, nurturing environment with a level of discipline that helps our children grow into strong, respectful young adults. I highly recommend MRS to any and all families who are considering a Catholic-Christian school, that is safe and affordable and fun! Thank you, MRS, for continuing to be a top-notch school!
