We, the staff of St. Mary of the Assumption School, teach children with a Christian environment.
We are dedicated to provide a climate in which the students are guided through their own efforts, to the realization of the God-given spiritual, intellectual and personal capabilities.
Our aim is to help the students develop the ability to be self-directed and to make sound judgments; children whose lives will be lived in conformity with the teaching of Christ and the ideals of family life.
We strive to foster children who are prepared to meet the physical, economic, social and cultural demands of our society.
We recognize that parents are the natural educators of their children.
We work in partnership with them to promote consistency between the values taught in school and those developed in the home.
We are aware of the uniqueness of each child, therefore we attempt to provide a teaching climate in which each child can experience success.
