St Mary School is building a great academic foundation for my son and daughter. They are in the 1st grade and kindergarten the teachers have been great. We started in the pre-school program and found a very loving and caring environment to enroll our children in. Parent involvement is required (15 hours a year minimum) and I think that its great to be able to be involved and I enjoyed that time serving at the school and watching my children interact with their peers. It has a strong program and growing student population which can't be said for some of the surrounding parish schools. I see the progress my children are making and how much they enjoy attending the school. If you are thinking of enrolling your children in Catholic education St. Mary School is a great option.

St. Mary of the Assumption School is an excellent school. I can tell the difference between my child and the public schooled children in the neighborhood. St. Mary's sets high standards for the children to encourage them to excel. The grading scale is tougher than the public schools but I only see this as a challenge and preparation for future schooling (high school and college). St. Mary's offers specials for high acheievement children who may need to be challenged. All of the staff at St. Mary's are excellent, caring and professional individuals. I have nothing but high praise for the school and staff and am so very happy I made the decision to join the St. Mary Community.

After reading some of the reviews posted by other parents of this school, it saddens me to think that some could see this school in anything other than a positive light. I volunteer at the school weekly and find that the students are highly educated past their friends in the public schools and leave this school highly motivated to succeed. Several new clubs have been formed and keep the students interested and focused on creating a strong base for their future. The teachers are dedicated and many give of themselves to seemingly every event sponsored by the school including coaching sports. The principal is ready to assist at any given time and is frequently seen around the school. The students (my children especially) talk of fun and interesting classes in which they learn from a high-tech computer lab and vastly stocked science lab with all sorts of specimens, rocks, & fossils.

I've been very disappointed with the this school. The junior high needs to change dramatically. The end results might be good, but if so, its only because the students are given hours of homework each night and multiple projects that require parent assistance. It makes me wonder what is getting accomplished during the day.

At St.Mary's, we often hear back from some of our parents whose children have begun highschool. They express to us how thankful they are for the strong foundation that St.Mary's has given their children academically. Often times, these students are already ahead of their peers from other schools! It gives us a great feeling of satisfaction to know that we have sent off our students fully prepared for highschool.

St. Mary's has a few teachers that are forward thinking. Mostly the teachers are out dated. Same old information taught the same old boring way. I would like to see a little creativity.

We were very pleased with St. Mary's School untill junior high. The elementary teachers were always helpful and would take the time to listen to parents. The reading program was especially good. In the junior high environment we found that students were loaded down with home work , project were not well planned because we were always working on several at one time. Some of the teachers seemed to suffer from giant egos.

Great school! Great teachers! The faculty works very hard to ensure that all students work to their full potential. Curriculum is challenging but yet age appropriate. Very friendly atmosphere. Parents have many opportunities to become involved in their childs education.

St. Mary's is a school of high academic quality. Students are taught to be responsible and learn how to succeed. They are challenged while still being rewarded for their effort. My own children have been well prepared for high school better than many from other schools. As I still have a child attending, I see the junior high continuously seeking to improve its program, and working to bring out the best each student. Being a good Christian is an important part of the education process. For the most part the staff and teachers exemplify the qualities they are trying to instill in the children.

Our childrens experience at St. Mary's school was very mixed. The elementary school provided a very solid foundation,especially grades 1-3. Junior High was a different experience. Some teachers were giving what we considered High School homework. We simply became tired of our son's homework becoming a family project.

The academic programs are excellent--students are very well prepared for high school! Parents are encouraged to become involved in school activities and are welcomed. Extracurricular courses are taught during the school day but there could be more afterschool extracurricultar activities. Teachers are ezxcellent and offer before or after school tutoring--free to help students succeed!

What an amazing school. My child has been put to the test and come out with flying colors academically. I know my child will be prepared for Catholic high school. For only entering during Jr. High years, my child has been embraced by faculty and staff, and welcomed nicely by the students.

The elementary grades are outstanding in many ways! However, the junior high suffers from outdated pedogogy, very little creativity and inconsistent discipline.
