My son had been a St. Mary's from pre-k - 4th. I liked the small class sizes and the whole concept of a private school . Over the years I felt the teachers were burnt out and the curriculum and books out of date and teaching methods boring for my son. Also, the lack of extra curriculum offered is another reason we switched schools.

My wife and I enrolled our 5 year old son into Kindergarten at Saint Mary's Primary School this year. We have the misfortune to live in a town with a substandard school system (Middleboro). We have been happy with the level of education at Saint Mary's Primary School and the tuition is at a reasonable price.

The staff at St Mary's Primary School are dedicated to teaching and enriching the learning experience to its students. They have high academic standards, sound values and teach with dignity and respect. The students learn confidence by being in a safe and nurturing environment.

St. Mary's promises alot but does not always deliver. Too many rigid,out of touch teachers and not many activities for the children compared to other Catholic schools.They also seem to be falling behind Taunton public school in mathmatics & science as well. Looks like their best days are behind them from what I see now.

Really great community of families dedicated to enriching their students life by encouraging a love for learning and fostering Catholic philosophy which is integratred into all aspects of the school. My two graduates of the school have continued to grow and excel in their educational experience.

I am a recent graduate of St. Mary's and I feel they have prepared me well for the future years that lay ahead. I enjoyed the teachers and all the activties and clubs and I have made lasting friendships and hold fond memories of the school.

St. Mary's has a lot to offer. I am a graduate of the school and a parent of current students. The art, music, and computer facilities are state of the art and the Chapel is beautiful.

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.
