Posted February 14, 2011

Our daughter went through all four years of high school at St. Mary's. We were very impressed by everything about this school; the staff, the curriculum, the atmosphere and the quality of the education received. It was worth every penny and I would highly recommend this school to anyone with an academically precocious child.

This school is amazing!!! Many teachers have advanced degrees and are passionate about the subjects. Many classes are the equivalent to college level coursework. The students WILL be prepared for college. Extremely accommodating of special needs.

Five star rating! My name is Nyssa. I have graduated from St Mary's in 1988. I recommend this school for any parent that is looking for a school that will enhance your child's future. My grades went from a 2.0 to a 3.5 after enrolling at St Mary's. I proceeded to attend college and graduated! Thanks to St Mary's and a very speial lady, Diane DeLuca, I succeeded in high school, and proceeded to college. Of course, the best decision my parents made for my future.

Both my children graduated from St. Mary's and I can't say enough good about the school. The academics they received were second to none, the teachers are fantastic and the athmosphere at the school is fantastic. All children should be fortunate enough to be able to attend this school.

St. Marys is a supportive, nurturing, and fantastic school. It has small classes with amazing teachers. The school not only has a great academic record, but also has top notch sports teams for the kids to play on. I would recommend this school to anyone.

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.
