After our first year at Saint Mary Star of the Sea School, I can safely say that I don't regret a penny that I spent. This is an amazing school with a warm and welcoming environment. Our oldest who graduated from 8th grade this year wishes he could go back... and this is a kid who never much cared for school until this last year.The teachers have excellent communication with parents and the environment is warm and loving. Not only did my children receive a rigorous education, but they learned, too, the values of self respect, humility, charity and honor. They grew as good citizens and learned so much more than ABC's and 123's. Take a tour of this school. It was certainly the best decision that I ever made for my own children.
