My son is currently in 2nd grade, but this is his first year at St. Mary's. He came to this school after he and us experienced much frustration at the public school. He has some special needs and he wasn't getting those addressed, but he sure is at St. Mary's. He has made major strides this year, and his behavior has improved and he is excited and enthusiatic about school. Last year, it was a fight to get him to go. Not this year. He is nurtured, supported, and encouraged. He is in a class with structure, discipline, and high expectations, which makes him work that much harder to succeed. This was the right move for us, and we and he couldn't be happier. P. Stockham

St. Mary's is a great school! The parents are wonderful and the staff is dedicated to the goals of the school as well as to the Church. Every child is taught Spanish (Pre-K-6th grade). I love my job and feel very blessed to work at St. Mary's. Yoly Nordling Spanish Teacher

I'm a teacher at St. Mary's. It's a great place! Class size is kept to approximately 20 students or less. Very managable. Parents are wonderful support partners in the education process! A great place to teach! Very little staff turn-over. An environment that encourages both spiritual and academic growth.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
