My daughter is starting her third year at St. Mary's. She completed PK3 and PK4. She was reading by mid PK4. Ms. Zina is an awesome teacher. St. Mary's is very family oriented and they care about the development of the students. Sis Odessa is in her second year as a principal and she is very involved and very engaged with not just the students but also the parents. I'm looking forward to my daughter continuing her education with St. Mary's.

Ms. Zina is an awesome teacher. She challenges the students to do their best at all levels. Personal and scholastic. I am so grateful to the enrichment she has provided to my daughter in her development years.

Develops grit: Strongly disagree

The PTO in conjunction with the school developed an accelerated reading program which rewards the students for reading the most books. It keeps the kids excited at their own pace and builds persistence, grit and determination.

Develops honesty: Strongly disagree

The students attend religion classes daily. Ms. Benitez is a great presenter of the fundamentals of honesty, integrity and fairness. Ms. Zina teaches the children to respect eachother as well as the faculty and staff. The PTO works with the school to also do social and ethic classes for the student body.

The new principal does not know how to do her job and should be relieved of her position! She is incompetent, does not treat parents with respect, shows favoritism to specific families, and certainly does not display herself as a Christian! She has proven to be calculating and dishonest!

My middle daughter and youngest daughter have gone to school here and my youngest attends now. I have NOTHING negative to say. The school is fantastic, small, and I adore the staff. They serve hot breakfast and lunch which is one less thing for me to worry about. They are very upfront about tuition, fees, volunteer time expected etc. The student teach ratio is 1:10. My daughter begs to go to school every day. They have a security gate and locked doors that have to be opened once a parent rings the bell and security cameras are on the premises. I highly recommend the school for pre-k 3 through 5th grade

"We are Family" is the school motto and this is so true. The teachers know all the students by name regardless of grade level. Parent involvement is encouraged. You can't go wrong with any of the PreK teachers. They are all great. The upper levels are no longer Montessori but the change is phenomenal. There are smart boards in every class and a new computer lab. I have 2 kids here and wouldn't go anywhere else.

My sons both attend St. Mary's, it is a close nit school. Most of the teachers are very good and care a great deal about the children, it is a strong faith based school, kids are given structure in a positive environment that fosters learning.

My son has attended St. Mary's since PK4 and in now in 4th grade. We are very satisfied with both the quality of the education and the overall nurturing faith-based environment of the school. We are sad that the school only goes to 5th grade and that we will have to look for a middle school next year.

St. Mary's is a great school if you want a very small, close-knit, family-type, faith-based environment for your PK-5th grade child. They do a great job with reading skills, particularly if your child has good reading skills to work with. Some math reinforcement is necessary though. Overall: wonderful, Catholic, strong faith school.

Being a parent at St. Mary's a little over eight years, I must say I am satisfied with the education, extra-cur. and the nurturing environment. However, the principal could definitely use some additional trainings in effective communicating, but no worry, she is not teachng any of the classes. That is why my children are still in attendance. Kuddos to Mrs. Mary Helen, Mrs. Richard, Mrs. Patrick and Mr.Chance! I wish the school would add 6th-8th grade.
