School Reviews

St. Mary's offers a great experience for children ages 3-14, including full day pre-k starting at age 3. School offers math, science, technology and Spanish programs for all ages and are building future leaders in our community. The school has a long history of offering music, art and athletic programs. There is an after school program and free bus service for Branford residences. I have 3 children that attend St.Marys and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a private school that focuses on delivery a higher level of education for child.
