St. Mary Parish Catholic School is a PK – 8 Catholic school and we have a long tradition of academic excellence and faith formation.
Like most Catholic schools in the Wichita diocese, we have excellent test scores on the Kansas State Assessments and on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
Our middle school students participate in athletics, band, choir, scholar bowl, Religion Bowl, Optimist Speech Contest, and numerous other academic/fine art contests.
Academic challenge and extra-curricular activities are wonderful to have, but what makes St. Mary’s special is the teaching of the Catholic faith.
Students attend mass twice a week and Prayer Service once per week.
We pray before school, after school, around meals, and before class.
