St. Mary's School is an excellent school for K-8 and provides a rich academic environment. The teachers care deeply about their students success, and the atmosphere is safe and provides an opportunity for each student to shine.

St. Mary's School is a wonderful school. My son has learned so much in the three years that the has been at St. Mary's. The faculty is wonderful. The academic program is great as is the sports program.

I would recommend St Mary's to anyone looking for a Catholic eduction. Teachers and Administration are very friendly and easy to talk to. Academically St Mary's is very sound and its test scores are higher than public schools. St Mary's has plenty of extracurricular activities for all the children. Soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball are available for children K-8. The level of parent involvement is very high in a private school. Most parents like to get involved and that's what makes St Mary's a special place. I read one complaint about too many fund raisers but this is a private school where funds are limited. The fund raisers all go toward good causes. Even public schools have fund raisers in Williamstown and its cost per pupil is close to $10,000. Tuition at St Mary's is around $3000 so fund raisers are a necessity to provide the best for the children.

My two children have attended for three years, K,1,2,3, this school has the teachers work more on fund raising than teaching the kids, they send all the work home for the parents to teach how to do the school work. This is the second review I've submitted, this web site only post a good review it seems. Not happy with this school system. Will not attend next year.

We love St. Mary's. My child is in kindergarten. Even these little ones get to go to computer and science labs. The teachers are wonderful. My daughter has learned a lot already and looks forward to going to school. St. Mary's has great leadership and parent involvment. We are like one big family!

St. Mary is a great school. It is like one big family. The Principal, Vice Principal and Teaching staff are excellent as well as the supporting staff. I'm pleased that my children attend.

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.
