My son had his preschool here and his teachers were excellent. They were sensitive to the peculiarities and needs of each child and maintains a fun and happy learning environment. The curriculum was geared towards kindergarten readiness, since they were already given homeworks and being taught advanced things (math: patterns, addition). I highly recommend this school.

I want to complement the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers at St. Mary's School. The teachers are doing outstanding work & study habits

My daughter will be entering the fifth grade next year, and I couldn't be happier. She has been a student since she was in pre-school. Everyone looks out for eachother and that includes parents to teachers to clergy. I really like how the parish and school are so close and really know how to bring and keep a community together. My daughter is a top reader in her class and her tests scores were outstanding. Thank you St. Mary's for giving my daughter the best education!

My son is in kindergarten and I am very impressed. There are two teachers in his class of 14. They spend a lot of time with him and he has homework every night. He absolutely loves it. In addition, values and respect are taught from the get go.

I have been very pleased with the quality of this school. Children beginning in K receive homework. This helps to develop the habit of studying at home with parents. Everyone at the school really cares about the students. Older grades helps with the lower grades. Both groups love it.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
