St Mary's Christian School
- St. Mary's Christian School is a non-profit, co-educational day school.
- The school is open for 180 days for our full day programs.
- Our half day programs operate fewer days. We are closed for 12 major holidays and 12 days during the school year for vacation, parent conferences and staff training.
- At St. Mary's our curriculum goal is to provide a daily experience that is directed at joy filled Christian learning and living.
- We have small classes by design. Lessons and activities are based on well researched learning and teaching practices.
- We are committed as a staff to continually revising our program to meet the needs of the students that are currently enrolled, not to expect children to fit into a limiting predetermined curriculum.
- We are using the Washington State's Essential Learnings, developmental growth continuum and the newly developed Early Learning and Developmental Benchmarks for children from birth to age 5 to guide our program design.
- Our mission shall be to work in active partnership with parents to assist in the development of the whole child - intellectually, spiritually, morally, socially, emotionally and physically and to help awaken and educate children about the special capacities and talents they each possess.
