This school is fabulous. The teachers are caring and put forth a great amount of effort to ensure that every child is loved and is learning at the ability that they are able. As a parent with 2 students, I can't believe the amount of knowledge my students have come out of St. Mary's with, they have grown so much and the Catholic environment is safe and inviting!

I have sent two of my Children to this school. Both are excelling in their classrooms. My soon to be 4th grader is reading at 6th grade level and his Math scores are what would be expected about mid year in 5th grade. My 1st grade girl jumped leaps and bounds in her ability to read while in kindergarten and is learning more all the time. The teachers keep us informed, the school has active and involved parents, and I love the Catholic environment.
