St. Marys School

St. Mary's Catholic School is a community of Faith developed by parents, staff, and students working together to provide an educational setting whereby each child can develop a strong sense of self-worth and a positive attitude toward sharing and group associations.
We believe in the basic goodness of each person. Our commitment is to provide a positive atmosphere where Catholic Christian values are taught, modeled, and practiced, giving each child the freedom and direction to develop his/her personal worth and uniqueness.
We have the further commitment to provide a variety of faith-filled experiences so students have the opportunity to develop a Christian philosophy enabling them to grow through Catholic doctrine and Christ's message.
We believe every child is an individual with the ability to learn and develop through a strong academic curriculum.
This curriculum responds to the needs of the total child; spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social, and physical.
We recognize the importance of good communication, realizing that such open, positive relationships are necessary to everyone's growth experience.
We believe that St. Mary's Catholic School is a vital extension of our community.
As parents, staff, and students, we work together to become aware, informed, and involved in local and global concerns.
