I am alumni of St Mary Magdalen and had an amazing experience. The friends I met there are friends for a lifetime. It is an excellent community and values integrity, respect, individuality, service and honesty. It gave me a strong foundation for my continued Catholic education. It was really important to me our kids went there and now in 4th and 6th grade have had the same experience I had. Through this interesting school year the teachers were incredible not missing a beat and made virtual learning fun and exciting. I felt extremely lucky to have my kids at SMM.

SMM Review I couldn't be more impressed by our teachers and staff at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School. During this time of School Closure we have not missed a beat. Our kids lost only 1 day of instruction due to COVID-19. School was closed on Thursday and by Monday we were in class online. Over the remainder of our school year, our teachers provided wonderful content and in a time of such uncertainty they also provided continuity and routine to our days. Our 8th grader had regular class time every day-each of his teachers providing this regular class time on Google Meet through Google Classroom. He was given projects and assignments. When things proved a bit overwhelming, we had an online meeting with all his teachers, counselors and our principal to come up with a plan to help him through the rest of the year. We felt completely supported. Our 5th grader was given daily assignments. Complete with online video tutorials from her teachers. It was as if she was sitting right there in class. She was also so lucky as our amazing Music teacher provided Keyboarding and Guitar lessons for any of the 5th graders once a week through Zoom. I have had 4 kids at St. Mary Magdalen, 2 have graduated out and are thriving in high school. I have always loved our school community. I have always been so impressed by our amazing school staff. I know there are many wonderful teachers in this world. But there is a concentration of dedicated, talented, kind, teachers and staff at our school. As I have but one child left at SMM, I look to the next few years, our last few years with both excitement and sadness as our time here will draw to a close. But I also know my children will move forward in their schooling with an amazing foundation brought to them by St. Mary Magdalen.

St. Mary Magdalen Catholic School has provided a safe environment for my kids to grow and learn. Our teachers go above and beyond to make sure they connect with each one of their students. During the quarantine my kids didn't miss one single day of school. They transitioned from in person learning to virtual learning in no time. The transition was seamless. Most of the teachers took the time to visit their students in more than one occasion, taking all the precautionary measures. Our new principal has the energy, preparation and passion to guide our school to an even greater level.

I have 3 kids in SMM. My daughter is graduating this year from 8th grade. My other kids are in 2nd grade and Kindergarten. We have been affiliated to SMM since 2010. We are very happy with the school and community here.

My family has been at SMM for the last five years and we have two children at the school (4th and 2nd grade). I have been beyond impressed by the teachers, administration, and staff and their commitment to provide a specialized education for each of the students. In the midst of the COVID-19 shutdowns, our kids lost one single day of class instruction and have otherwise continued to move forward with their academic advancement. We have loved our community at the school as well and the focus on developing students with strong morals and values. We couldn't be happier with our decision to attend SMM.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.
A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
