This school was a wonderful school to grow up in. From the time I was a five year old child to the time I was a 14 year old it was and still is a fantastic school. Mrs.Quast and Fr.Williams are both fantastic people and school leaders and my siblings and I could not have dreamed of going to a different school.

Maternity of Mary - Saint Andrew is an outstanding community based school focused on a quality education and traditional moral values. An incredible facility with great teachers and strong leadership from Principal Maggie Quast and Father Williams with great support from parents and students alike, it is truly a gem and I treasure the opportunity that my son has to be learning here.

Maternity of Mary - Saint Andrew is an outstanding school that strives for excellence in education. Along with that is the strong focus on catholic faith and teaching skills to succeed in life. The teachers are kind and attentive to students needs. Father Williams and principal Maggie Quast are the best leaders this school could ask for! My children are very happy at MMSA and have many quality friends with good manners and morals, reinforced while they are at school. I highly recommend MMSA school. I have enjoyed many hours of volunteering and have gotten to know many great families. It's a wonderful community to belong to!

Excellent school - great, fun, networked parent groups. Catholic spirituality is very strong and vibrant here and teachers genuinely care about their students. Fr. Williams is wonderful! Maggie Quast is an excellent principal. The school also has a beautiful gym for athletics.

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.
