School Notes

  • Established in 1925, St. Martin's Catholic School is the oldest Catholic school in Montgomery County. In 1988, the new school and parish center building was opened, through the dedication and efforts of Rev. Americo DiNorcia, and the school expanded to include a licensed After-Care Program. Today, the school offers an excellent academic program under the direction of the Principal and an outstanding faculty and staff. Together with the Pastor, Reverend Richard Gancayco, and the assistant pastors, St. Martin's staff provides an excellent faith-centered education program.

St. Martin's is so much more than a school! It is a community and a family. We have been at SMS for 7 years and what brought us to the school was our faith, what sealed the deal on our decision to attend were the students! When we first arrived for the open house, the students gave us a tour of the school (which is still true today) and we were so impressed. They were articulate and mature and knowledgeable and we thought, "this is how we want our kids to be". Everyone at our school knows each other to some degree, the parent involvement is amazing, the older kids mentor the younger kids, and the teachers are very hands on. The teachers really know all the students, it's an amazing place and we are so lucky to attend such a special school!Furthermore, St. Martin's and the Archdiocese of Washington have very high academic standards and it show's year after year when our kids graduate and leave for high school more prepared than their peers and ready for AP classes. While the academics are tough, the teachers are ALWAYS there for the students. They get to know them well and they understand their different personalities, strengths and weaknesses and they are the first ones to rally behind them when they need help. They will not hesitate to reach out to parents when needed, so we have open communication and a good plan in place when a little extra help is in order. I have two very different learners and SMS has been a nurturing learning environment for both of them!If you want a good Catholic School that teaches about faith, community service, character building, has great academics, after school activities, dedicated teachers and so much more...than SMS is the place for you! AND, if you are not Catholic, but you still want ALL those things...SMS is STILL the place for you! This school is a small little gem that should not be overlooked! It is "top notch" in so many way and in this sometimes crazy world, you will not find a better home for your children and your family than St. Martin's School!
