SMKCS was the best choice for our daughter's education. We have been at SMKCS for 3 years now and could not be any happier. I truly believe our daughter is getting the best education in a supportive and loving environment.
I am so delighted with what my daughters have been exposed too and learned at St. Mary of the Knobs. My oldest daughter was in the second class to come through the school, and now my youngest is in 5th grade. They both have received such and education, have had a wonderful time interacting with their teachers, and have developed a deeper faith in our God, with a deep respect for human life, and positives interactions with other.
SMKCS I could have not made better choice when selecting a school for my 2 children, my second is now in the last year, both have attended from Pre-School and have been extremely satisfied with all aspects of Elementary and Catholic School and hope to be able to continue sending both my children to a Catholic School.
So glad we chose to send our children here. After 1 semester of preschool - we were hooked. Now 3 years in, we are still so happy and blessed to have the kids go here. The staff and parental involvement, education they are receiving, values being taught, the school truly is shaping the entire character of the child.
We have 2 children at SMKCS and one in Floyd County public schools. We struggled with the idea of paying for private school when our public schools are some of the best in the state. But one of our children has a learning disability and we felt she would do better in the smaller setting at SMKCS. 2 years later, it is the best decision we ever made. She is thriving at SMKCS and we attribute at lot of it to the staff and teachers at SMKCS. They go above and beyond to help in any way they can. Anytime we have a question or want to let the teacher know something, they are right there to listen to us or respond to our emails very quickly. There are days that the teachers email me something about what happened that day before I have picked the kids up. We just never felt like we got that kind of communication from the public schools. And it is so obvious the teachers and staff love what they do and love being at SMKCS. I honestly feel like they love our kids as much as we do! We feel like part of a big family at SMKCS and we are so grateful everyday to be a part of this wonderful school!
We are satisfied with SMKCS. Great nurturing environment and caring teachers, staff and parents. Small size and easy to navigate.
the BEST! We transferred in to SMKCS after being at a different NA Deanery School and it was the best decision we made for our family!!! SMKCS is a very progressive Catholic School, with very involved parents. This school and its teachers constantly challenge my children to be the best students they can be.
We love our school! The teachers and staff are all concerned about our children's education, health and safety. Our kids love to go to school and have learned so much. We have 2 kids and started in preschool. Parent involvement is always welcomed!
LOVE St. Mary Of The Knobs Catholic School! The staff as a whole strives for the very best and endless effort is placed in achieving such. The kids at SMKCS are respectful, kind-hearted and love one another as family - truly represents the values taught in the midst of day to day academic teachings.
love this school! love mrs. haas who teaches kindergarten... we were at another deanery school last yr. and were unhappy switched to st. marys and have been very happy.
My children have attended Preschool and Pre-K at SMK and we have been very pleased. The teachers and other staff members are extremely kind and caring for all of the kids. It's a great family oriented school.
I have 2 children and this is their first year here at SMKCS. My husband and I chose this school because of the loving environment. We could not be happier with our decision. Since starting here, my children have grown so much, with academics and spiritually. Our children's teachers go above and beyond what is asked of them. My children feel loved and secure while they are there, and I feel the same as I leave them. There is very open communication with the staff and parents, that is important to me. I love this school and highly recommend it to any parent.
I have 2 children at SMKCS, I'm very happy with the commitment we have made to send our children here. They are both very comfortable here. It is home away from home. I feel everyone from the wonderful lunch ladies, custodian's, secretaries and the wonderful teachers have the best interest of each and every child at heart. I truely love it here and so do my kids.
My husband and I are very happy with the teachers, principal, and staff at SMKCS. They are fabulous. Our daughter loves the school and is really growing and advancing there. We really like the focus on spirituality and academics. It is an excellent community atmosphere and a great school.
Our family has been a part of SMKCS for a total of three years and know that every penny invested in our sons' education has been well worth it. Our boys have an understanding and respect for their faith, learn in a Christian-based environment daily, and are surrounded by a staff and faculty committed to the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, individually. Our oldest son recently graduated from SMKCS and because of the positive and encouraging experience he had there, will, by choice, be continuing his Catholic education in Jr/Sr high at Our Lady of Providence. We believe in the mission of SMKCS and our committed to supporting the school while we have children attending and beyond.
I can't say enough about the faculty and staff at SMKCS. They are second to none. My children have grown so much in their short time there. Not just in academically, but spiritually as well. Keep up the good work.
My son recently graduated from St. Mary of the Knobs Catholic School. We have been a part of this school since he was in kindergarten. SMKCS has a family environment like no other school that I have seen! All of the teacher's, as well as the principal know each and every student and family. The teacher's push each and every child to their highest ability. They expect a lot from the children and the children respond to this. God is put first and foremost in each and every day at this school. The children are constantly learning more about God. They are very comfortable participating in all parts of the Mass. They are very comfortable with public speaking. The children are constantly participating in public speaking from the time they begin kindergarten. I am absolutely thrilled with the education my son has received from St. Mary of the Knobs!
SMK offers a quality education that is Christ centered. The children are encouraged to perform at their full potential.
Our family couldn't be happier with the education and attention given to our children. We love the environment here at the school and the study of the 4 R's; Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic, and Religion. Our children have been taught, and undertsand, the consequnces of their actions and respect for other people. This is what school was always supposed to be about. Mind, Body, and Spirit.
We have had our kids here since 2002 and are very pleased. We believe in their standards regarding academics, morals, discipline and Roman Catholicism.
