St. Mary's elementary teachers are terrific! They really challenged my child to work at above grade level. The middle school math program could be stronger. I don't think that students should receive full credit for classwork that they received a 'D' on. This does not prepare them to do well on the tests. I also wonder when the school is going to build the new gym/cafeteria. The priest promised to start building several years ago and we are still waiting.
My daughter is currently going to this school and has been since kindergarten. She is now in the 7th grade and the teachers, principal and administrative staff have been great with her and our family. My daughter is an honor roll student and an accelerated reader. This school is great in my book!!!!
The school is great! The computer lab instruction was lacking until a change in teachers in January 06. Students now are able to use most software packages with great success. The math throughout is outstanding and getting better every year. The students are welcoming of new students and the staff is supportive too.
Both of my children graduated from St Mary's which provided a good moral environment. It is Preschool - 8th grade. The Lower grades are excellent however the middle school (grades 6, 7 & 8)is lacking especially the math and computer curriculums do not prepare students for high school.
