St. Mary of the Assumption School is a coeducational Catholic elementary school founded by St. Mary of the Assumption Church in 1925, to serve the Catholic families of the greater Upper Marlboro area.
This school is committed to the embodiment of the threefold educational mission of the Church: to teach the message of Jesus, to build Christian community, and to foster a concern for social justice.
This is accomplished through an instructional program dedicated to academic excellence and vibrant faith aimed at the development of the whole child; that is, one who is spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically mature.
We are celebrating for the third year in a row "Blue Ribbon" status in Reading, where are scores are phenomenal. As an example, our eighth graders met the ninth grade "cut scores" for this prestigious award. If you want your child to learn to read, and read well, send him/her to our school.

This is a very good school. The teachers and class size are great, and my kids are performing well above grade level. My kids were previously enrolled in a school in Arlington, but surprisingly this surpasses that school. I hope they keep it up.

I would highly recommend this school. It is a very tight-knit community where everyone is involved and looks out for each other. I am often amazed at what my daughter is being taught. The school offers a variety of activities to keep families engaged.
