- St. Mary's Parish School exists as a vital part of St. Mary's Parish ministry to support parents in the education of their children. As a school we strive to encourage our students to grow spiritually; to develop a life long love of learning and to strive to achieve their highest personal and academic potential. In living out the philosophy of St. Mary's School, the faculty/staff strive to help the children grow in love and respect for themselves, others and God. We provide a consistent academic program of basic skills enhanced by the fine arts, physical education and Spanish offered to all grades (Preschool through 8th grade four times weekly). In our academic program we strive to foster respect for the uniqueness of each person; provide a challenge for every individual at his/her learning level with opportunity for success; encourage each student to think for himself/herself; create a trusting, loving/nurturing atmosphere where students feel free to take risks; and provide exposure to diversity of people, experiences and concepts. Our ultmiate Mission is "To Grow Disciples for Christ".
