My 8th grader is thriving in this nourishing, academically robust, faith-based environment where students do come first. The exceptional quality of educators exceeds expectations and the personal responsibility my child now takes for schoolwork is a joy to witness. It's a Godsend to know exactly what my child is doing at school daily thanks to the systems and processes St. Ignatius Martyr Catholic School employs. The PTO is phenomenally engaging and the level of communication offered by the school is superb. We are quite pleased with the leadership of the school, too!

We have been at STIM for 3 years now and have children on both ends of the learning spectrum. Great Community. They are doing their best to accommodate all of the needs of the children. Additional resources from the Diocese on this front would be my only additional request.
