This school is amazing. Not only will they not turn anyone away, but they will find a way to help families financially who want their child(ren) to receive a Catholic education. The staff is passionate and enthusiastic, the parents are very involved and welcome at all times, and the principal is dedicated to creating an environment that supports students, staff, and parents all while pulling in awesome fun ("houses" for middle school, Snow Day, Chocolate Festival, etc.). The educational standards are high and students are afforded the opportunity to succeed with all of the benefits of wonderful teachers, free afterschool tutoring, and one-on-one assistance as needed.

St. Mary's is an amazing school! They have a fantastic and rigorous curriculum that is just amazing. Furthermore, they focus on teaching children good morals and values. Children and parents are given clear expectations at all times because communication between the school and the parents is stellar. I absolutely love that my child is a student at St. Mary's School.

My child attended this school. The school only cares about the money. While the education provide is acceptable, it is not above par the local public schools. It also has a very uncaring environment.

Excellent school!!! We just recently were relocated from St. Louis to Aiken and have a 1st and 2nd grader at St. Mary's and I cannot say enough about how wonderful adn supportive the staff and principal have been. the children love their foreign language class and I like the after school tutoring they offer free of charge.

My daughter attended St. Mary's for nine years. We will always be grateful not only for the excellent education that she received there but also for the school's caring environment. If I had another child, he or she would certainly attend St. Mary's.
