School Reviews

St. Mary School is hands down the most awesome school around. The administration and faculty are all genuine and caring team members who always have the children's best interests in mind. The principal is a gem, an excellent leader! The curriculum is challenging and competitive, including robotics and STEM projects, but there is still enough time for Phys Ed and recess and art and music. The school's smaller size allows for plenty of personalized attention and help when needed. Teachers are always available to help. Communication with parents is amazing. There is always a sense of fun in the school because learning should be fun, not just a chore! Parental involvement is strong. Kindness and concern about the world around us is instilled daily. It's a true community at St. Mary. It's a special place and my children are blossoming. I'd not have my kids anywhere else!
