St.Mary's School is horrible for kids,they make you wear uncomfortable clothing and they are very mean to the kids. The principal as well the principal is very mean too. That is just a horrible place to send your kids, If you send your child there you would be waisting your money because they teach nothing and when they do they expect you to know it by tomorrow. I don't recomend this school to anybody.

St.Marys school is great for education but for the principle and faculty its terrible. A few years ago it was a great school but about 2 years ago they had gotten a new principle, and it seems after that the school went down hill.The principle is disrespectful toward parents and students (the good people) they basically favor some and treat some with disrespect. It seems as the school just got money hungry and lost care in students. I do not recomend this school to anybody .

My daughters say they learned more in St. Mary's! They were so ready for high school and now are finished college and one is going for her Master's in teaching and the other is getting ready to apply to Vet School! Thanks St. Mary's!

I went to SMS from the third grade to the eighth grade and I loved it! Awesome teachers and a great place to be a kid but still learn alot! Put me well ahead of my public school peers.

Kindergarten has been great. The teacher is one of the best I have ever seen. She manages 32 kids, 3 sets of twins and has complete command of the class room. Her aid is tremedous as well.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.
