School Reviews

5  
As parents, we could not be happier with St. Mary School. Our children are given the individual attention by the teachers and staff that challenge them academically while learning in a safe, family-oriented environment where everyone knows each other by name from all grade levels. Older students truly serve as role models for younger students. Faith and ethics are emphasized and charitable works and service are taught as part of the curriculum. I highly recommend St. Mary to any parent who wants their child to learn in an optimal environment surrounded by children whose families truly care about the education and well being of their children.
