St. Mary's is wonderful! The administration, teachers, and staff are dedicated to providing an atmosphere in which children are able to thrive academically, practice their faith, perform service projects, and enjoy a number of extra-curricular activities. Some of our school's highlights are: *We have a primary grades science lab as well as a science lab for the big kids. * Pre-K and kindergarten teachers use small group, hands-on methods. * All students (Pre-K through 8th) have classes in religion, Spanish, language arts, math, social studies, science, phys. ed., computer, music, library, and art. * Many of our graduates qualify for AP classes in high school. * Students attend All-School Mass every Friday. Grades 1 through 8 attend Mass twice a week. * Our "Big Buddy/Little Buddy" program, pairing the Pre-K, kindergarten, and 1st grade children with grades 6, 7, and 8, benefits the older students as much as it does the little ones. * Extended child care is available both before and after school. * There are a number of after school activities offered, such as sports, clay club, and gardening club, just to name a few. * Bullying is not tolerated!
