St. Mary's is one of those small school wonders. It provides not only great learning for our daughter but quite a bit more. St.Mary's provides an ethical, caring environment, that holds to American ideals and we see how nicely our daughter has taken to it. My daughter is a mixed race child and at St. Mary's she is taught and loved for who she is without a scintilla of prejudice or notice. Perhaps I should note that we are not Catholic but have found that to be irrelevant for our child. St. Mary's teaches by example and I believe that it is the kind of school that is indeed an example to follow. We love the choice we made.

St. Mary's School is a place where students gain memoreable and life long experiences. The teachers really care about the well being of their students and guide them in positive, productive directions. The students are taught care and respect and are warm and welcoming to new students and one another. The education is great, and full of hard work that keep students thinking and fully prepared for their departure into high school.

St. Mary's is the heart of what works for kids. The students and faculty do not concern themselves with unions - state regulations or the like. All involved with the school care about one thing---effective and quality education for the children attending. There is a feeling that 'we can do it together' without the need for regulations or protections---there is an underlying understanding that we are all in it together to support the success of the future---our students...and the children succeed!!! Funding is low, but we will survive.

Even though the public schools in our area are good, St Mary's provides more. Besides an excellent education given by excellent and caring teachers, St Mary's also gives the gift of being able to freely express our Christian faith. What better way to start your day then with prayer? This wonderful feeling is passed on through out the day to each other. You can see and feel it as the children interact with each other. The children know that they are loved and cared for at St. Mary's. What public school can you send your child to that the principal, office staff, all the teachers and just about every student knows not only your child's name and grade, but who they are as a person too. I love St. Mary's, the financial sacrifice is worth it!

St. Mary's is a wonderful school where families are valued, personal responsibility and discipline are a part of the lesson plans, and academic achievement is considered 'cool'! When you become part of the St. Mary's family, you and your children will make lasting friendships. As a high school teacher, I can also vouch for the excellent academic preparation. St. Mary's kids are poised to achieve!

I love St. Mary's School in Hackettstown! Its a small school, but it is big on Spirit. Our kids are awesome!! The older ones are great role models for the younger students. Our buddy system helps them build friendships from Pre-K. The kids are amazingly confident, polite, hardworking, and respectful. The academics are rigorous, yet attainable. Its a small community where everyone looks out for each other's children. St. Mary's is a great school!

St. Mary's is a great school. No school is perfect, but St. Mary's tries hard to fulfill parent expectations. The best part, our children can express their love for God freely. Jesus is still in Christmas and parents are encouraged to be involved with the school and students. Like any other school that is privately funded there are some down sides. The majority of the teachers that are here have been here awhile and are truly the best and love teaching the children. May God Bless them & Mrs. Walsh our principal.
