My son proudly graduated from this school this year. I have nothing but compliments for the staff and the parent aides. The quality of education certainly has not faltered since my brother went here in the late 70's. I would certainly recommend this school to any parent that is looking for an education that is outstanding. The staff goes above and beyond any expectations that I had for not only educating, but also for mentoring their students.

I went to this school years ago and I must say I definetly got a lot out of it. I attended this school from the 4th grade to the 8th and I'm so glad that I did. Some Catholic schools just aren't as good of schools as they may come off to be; but St. Mary's is definetly one of the best in the Boston area. I recommend sending your child to this school if you can. I'm now a sophomore at Boston University and I got here not because of what I got out of my high school, but what I got out of St. Mary's.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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 is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

 
 

Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
