As a parent who has put two girls through St. Mary's, I would highly recommend this school for anyone who is looking to provide their child with a safe, caring, and family oriented education. Not only does the staff truly treat your child as their own, but it's amazing watching the bond the students form with eachother. As my children have grown I can see the benefit of this faith based environment has had in making them strong, independent and great kids.

As a former student and current parent of a student at St. Mary-Sacred Heart School I have only wonderful things to say about SMSH. My daughter is growing into a responsible, empathetic, and morally strong young adult due to her amazing teachers and support staff. Every adult in that school takes has a personal relationship with the students and go above and beyond academically. The Principal and Director are the most caring and involved administrators I have known. I highly recommend St. Mary-Sacred Heart School if you are looking for a quality education for your child that involves much more than classroom learning and books.
