St Mary-Basha Catholic School 5

In Middle School, your students learn Science similar to how students learn science at St. Mary-Basha except for this big difference: "Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of Truth." – Pope Saint John Paul II In Public School your child only receives reason – why only provide them 1 wing, when they could have received 2 wings from St. Mary-Basha Catholic School.

Sr Mary Thelma has taken this school during a time when the Charter schools have invaded and poached Catholic kids and deceived Catholic parents and has maintained enrollment and increased expectations - not enough credit us given to the SMB principal.

From a student “My parents say they are proud of my accomplishments academically and sports, but they love who I am.” When I ask what they mean, they respond that: “while accomplishments matter and success is important, achievement uninformed by faith, purpose, & character will ultimately be hollow” I respond who I am is harvest of my school – St. Mary-Basha Catholic School

If you desire a great school that reinforces your child's Catholic identity you should consider St. Mary Basha. The kids there not only work hard in the classrooms, they are working hard at becoming well rounded and wonderful young people. They are taught certain core values that simply do not exist in other schools. Kids in this school are challenged by their teachers to try their hardest. If a child is struggling in a subject, their teacher will stay after and help them. The school has lots of new technology that you don't see in other elementary schools. We made a great choice. We were scared of paying tuition but they will give you lots of info on scholarships and ways to make it work. Great place.

we have not had all the teachers but a few stand out as beyond terrific: Mrs. Meza the computer teacher, Mrs. Alimusa and the school librarian Mrs. Ballesteros

Amount of homework: Just right

some grades/teachers give more than others. some years are more difficult than others. they are never given more than they can handle and teachers communicate with parents if there are issues. some nights it takes longer than others to complete, some times teachers give them time in class to get started

kids are encouraged to work hard and taught not to give up. sometimes things get difficult but kids are shown how to overcome obstacles. an example is their service hour goals and A/R goals they are reminded of how important it is to reach their goals and if they don't... they are just encouraged to try harder

Respect is taught and expected from the staff and students. Disrespect is simply not tolerated here.

They encourage the students to earn service hours by serving their community. They learn about serving the poor and less fortunate through projects and various "drives"
