School Notes

What our families are saying:
  • "This was one of the best decisions we could ever have made! St. Mary school has exceeded our expectations!"
  • "We have a close-knit "family" here, made up of caring people whose goal is to educate our children so they demonstrate academic success while helping them develop a faith-filled foundation for their lives."  
  • "This school is a `treasure' and we are so thankful that God brought us here."
  • "While we valued the religion we knew they would learn, we also wanted a solid academic education to prepare them for high school and beyond. The ethics, morals, and values that are intrinsic to the school have enforced what we strive to teach at home."
  • "I know that our Catholic faith, the faith that our family holds so dear, is not just limited to a half hour religion class, but incorporated throughout the school day and that our motto, `Pray, Work, Study, and Play in Christ's name` is more than just a motto, it is an underlying guiding principle to every aspect of school life." 
  • "Our children are not only growing academically, socially, and physically, but they are blossoming spiritually as well in an environment where doing just that is not only tolerated, but encouraged. That, to me, is priceless."
  • "When I get asked that question, "Is it worth it " by my friends and family. Without hesitation, I answer, `Yes. There is no place else I'd rather they be.`"

We LOVE St Mary School! With small class sizes and amazing teachers, I am thrilled with the academic progress my daughters are making. The teachers are truly committed to finding ways to challenge the students to excel and for those students that struggle, the teachers go above and beyond to make sure they succeed as well. The principal is both easily accessible and always ready to listen, as well as energetic and enthusiastic. And I can not say enough about the wonderful families who attend St Mary! They are warm, friendly, and welcoming. They have become a part of our family! We feel so blessed to have such a wonderful school where our daughters can live out their Catholic faith while receiving an education that is second to none.
