Richard Maher, over 45 years ago.
His vision was to provide children with quality education in both the Catholic faith and academic studies.

With teachers as facilitators of learning, we provide a quality education with emphasis on growth in all individual and social dimensions: social, moral, intellectual, cultural, emotional, and physical.
St. Margaret Mary Catholic School admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin, and does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its admission policies and employment practices.
