School Reviews

WE LOVE Saint Mary. We sent our 4 year old to preschool there thinking we would move to the public school for kindergarten. NO WAY. 3 years later we are now sending our next child to the preschool and our 2nd grader is so happy and loves going to school each day to see her teacher & friends. she also loves telling us about her day and what the "big" kids are doing that she wants to do when she gets older. It''s a great family environment and has an outstanding curriculum. My daughter loves her library time, music class and spanish - wow. I highly recommend Saint Mary School

St. Mary is a wonderful environment for children to learn and grow as individuals. They are constantly advancing their academics and keeping pace with technology all while offering music, art & many other extras at no extra cost. It is a safe and welcoming community for all our children, where everyone knows their name. I highly recommend PreKthru 8th grade.
