St. Mary's is amazing!!!!! My daughter Katherine went to Pre-K at St. Mary's and I could not have been happier. They were a blessing to our lives in a multitude of ways that I never would gave imagined. I am thankful for the great teacher and environment Katherine got to experience at St Mary's. I would recommend St. Mary's to anyone who is considering an alternantive to public education. Dawn Cash (Art Teacher and Mom)
We are new parents this year with a child in pre-k but so far we are loving it! The people really care about the children and they are learning so much.
My children attended St. Mary's before it became a PS - 8th grade school. How I wish they had had middle school in the early 1990's! Nevertheless, their early childhood education journey was a gift from God! Now as adults, they are firm in their academic, spiritual and social foundations. Thank you St. Mary's!
I have two children that attend SMES. The oldest has attended since preschool and will be entering 2nd grade. We have loved SMES since we have been attending. The school offers a nurturing environment with a small class size. My children are well known by the entire staff and all the other students through all the interactions throughout the day. The school fosters a positive relationship between the older children and the younger children. I feel that my children have excellent educational opportunities at school. They learn through experience, reading, singing, writing, hands on activities, etc. The school carries topics between the classes to solidify what is being learned. There are many community outreach programs which are lead through the students. The school fosters Christian values throughout the day. I as a parent have made close friendships with other parents. I would highly recommend this school.
St. Mary's is exceptional. Students feel safe, nurtured and respected. We have 2 children at the school, 4th and preschool. Both children receive individual attention that allows them to excel beyond our wildest dreams. St. Mary's core curriculum is excellent and they offer Science (with a full lab), Music, Art, Service Learning (volunteering) and so much more. If you want a well-rounded education, with a true focus on the child, you want St. Mary's.
Best kept secret in Edmond! We homeschooled prior to coming to St. Mary's. I was so happy to recognize the curriculum for some topics used at St. Mary's as the same I had been using at home! I have a 2nd grader and a 6th grader. They are both so happy to attend here. I was really nervous about acclimating my daughter back into school in middle school, knowing how brutal middle school can be. I thank the Lord every day that He guided me to St. Mary's. It is truly a 'safe' middle school environment. The kids are challenged, everyone knows them by name and parental involvement is great. They have been around since 1977 and have consistently proven themselves to be a great school. Give them a tour, you will see.
Our child started at St. Mary's Episcopal School in Edmond as a pre-school student -- she is now in the elementary program. The school has an outstanding early childhood learning program that transitions well into the upper grades. What makes St. Mary's Episcopal School special is its loving environment. The teachers and staff are warm and welcoming -- this creates an atmosphere in which every child wants to learn and reach his/her potential. Our child has had a fabulous experience -- her early learning experience is a great foundation and preparation for the years to come!
Fabulous school - My children are greeted with a hug and a smile every morning. The teachers are proactive in addressing issues BEFORE they become a problem. The school sets an expectation of excellence and the students respond. I could not be more pleased with this school.
St. Mary's has big such a blessing for our children and family! The strong curriculum, individualized attention, small teacher/student ratios, nuturing enviroment are outstanding. I recommend without reservation!
I cannot say enough good things about this school. We originally toured St. Mary's specifically for small class sizes but found more than we could have imagined. You truly feel like part of a family from your first day. The curriculum is excellent, but I'm not just talking academics. St. Mary's enriches our sons spiritually and morally as well. If you are looking for a school with top notch caring teachers who know ALL the students, not just the ones in their class - St. Mary's is for you. If you are looking for a school that has great parental support and probably the nicest group of people you will encounter- St. Mary's is for you. If you are looking for a place where your children will blossom beyond expectations - St. Mary's is for you.
If you are tired of your children getting lost in the shuffle, or worried that they aren't getting the attention and nurturing they deserve, then St. Mary's might be the school for you. Every day I drop off my kids, I know they are in the best hands possible. Every teacher and staff member knows the children by name, and they all exude the kind of nurturing, loving attitude that is the hallmark of the St. Mary's culture. My children will definitely leave St. Mary's equipped with the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual tools needed to be successful in all they undertake. There's a reason why the middle- and high-schools all want St. Mary's graduates.
My children have graduated from St Mary's and I have seen first hand the results of the great education they received at St Marys. Academically it was superior to other school and presented a challenging curriculum in an appropriate manner. Your child will not get lost in the schuffle or become a number. The individual attention is a priority and each child is treated with the respect for their individualiy. You don't get a second chance for a good childhood. Invest now and you will not regret the special experience your child will be a part of.
If you are looking for the best place in Edmond to enroll your elementary or pre-school age child, this is it! The faculty and staff make it their purpose to provide unparalleled educational, spiritual and emotional instruction. The student to teacher ratio is very good and the parents are the best in town - not too 'over the top' but very involved. Our son began with St. Mary's in Kindergarten and is now a 4th grader. We can't say enough nice things about St. Mary'. Just take a tour and you'll feel the difference.
What's not to love at St. Mary's?, My kids don't want to leave the school ever, the teachers are super in EVERY aspect. After being turned down by the snobbish attitude at a Catholic school nearby, we decided to try it and now I thank them for doing us the favor. The principal is very involved, the atmosphere is super friendly, the kids feel the support of everybody in their learning and since the teacher:student ratio is so low, it is like having private tutors overseeing every aspect of their education.
A great school filled with great students, teachers and parents, all very involved in developing young children into responsible, motivate and intelligent young adults. Our daughter loves it and at age 6 was reading at the 4th-5th grade level.
My son was able to recieve one on one instruction from his teacher. You can tell the principal really cares about the students and parents. Many extracurricular activities were available including Spanish. Parents are very involved with the school.
St. Mary's is an amazing school, that you love. The teachers are so sweet, and the principle in wonderful. The classes are small. Your child has plenty of room to grow at St. Marys. Also ST. Marys is growing which is so exciting.
