St. Mary's Wappinger Falls is the best elementary school in the valley!! The class sizes are perfect, and the atmosphere is really focused on helping each child to excel. All of the teachers are engaged with the students and it is such a community. Everyone gets to know each other and the students really grow up together. The atmosphere lets kids be kids and they are not distracted by the many influences that you see and hear about in the public schools. The before and after care program is awesome, it's so nice to know that my son does not have to be sent somewhere after school for day care until we get home from work, and as an added bonus he spends time with the aids and does all his homework before we pick him up, which makes our time at home in the evening more of a quality family time. I would and have recommended this school to anyone with a child in K-8th grade!!
This school is the best Catholic school in the Hudson Valley by far! Unlike some of the others in the community, the school is not run by a self-selected few or a group of high & mighty moms. Everyone has a chance to be involved. The principal is outstanding. She is totally approachable and eager to improve the school in any way she can. Class sizes are perfect and every child get the attention and encouragement you're paying for. I struggle with keeping this gem a secret for my own children to enjoy verses letting the word out and it getting too big. The before/after school program allows working parents to pay for school & childcare for the same $ childcare alone costs. Best kept secret in the HV! My kids love it...and I love it.
st. Mary's in Wappimgers Falls offers not only the best education,locally, it also offers family, support ,love and kindess. Greatest decision I ever made for my daughter. I can just simply say, Thank you and God Bless.
My son attending Kindergarten currently. I am very happy with his first few days. All teachers and staffs in school are very nice, and my son wakes up every morning can not wait to get onto the school bus! So far so good!
St. Mary's School in Wappingers Falls is a wonderful small school. My children have attended since kindergarten and will continue through 8th grade. It is a safe learning environment; most families know each other, the teachers know the children very well, and the children have had much academic success. They are very well prepared for high school regardless of whether they will go to Our Lady of Lourdes or public high school.
I have two children who graduated St. Mary's and two who still attend. The education they receive(d) is excellent and well rounded. In addition they learn discipline and respect for others.
