St. Marys Catholic Elementary School
St Marys Elementary School is a part of Joplin Area Catholic Schools.
We believe that the special purposes for our schools are threefold: Christian enviornment, academic excellence, and leadership development.
The Joplin Area Catholic Schools educate the whole person – mind, body, and spirit – to be a good citizen and a future leader of church, community and nation.
St. Mary's fully accredited school places a high emphasis on helping students use their potential for academic growth.
Caring teachers help students develop a Christian value system to take with them throughout life.
Students learn to respond to others' needs by sharing of themselves.
Through various activities and discussions, values such as compassion, cooperation, responsibility and self-discipline are learned.
These values are learned in the Christian community environment of the school and in religion classes.
