I attended St. Mary's from 1954-1962. It was a wonderful experience which more than prepared me for high school and college. It was several years before I truly realized how far St. Mary's curriculum was ahead of the public school system. I frequently recall my years at St. Mary's, and have never had a single regret. I have the highest regards for this school.
