St. Mary Parish School has a rich history within the community of Menomonee Falls.
Over 30,000 students have graduated from the school during its 90-year history.
At the annual meeting on January 1, 1916, the parish leadership approved plans to build the original school consisting of 2 classrooms, a hall and convent living quarters.
The doors opened in September 1916 and the first class of two students graduated in 1919.
Enrollment grew steadily over the years and over time additional classrooms and space were constructed.
Today, St. Mary Parish School is poised to continue its long history of serving the families and children of Menomonee Falls.
The addition of a state-of-the art science lab, new Kindergarten classrooms and other remodeling components planned for the school will position our school to continue its mission for our next generation of students.
