I really love St. Mary's. Last year was my son's first yeat to be away from home for an extended period of time, and let me just say that he adjusted well and he loves it. Although I am not Catholic, I think this school is wonderful and is teaching my son the core essentials to be successful in all his endeavors. I couldn't have asked for a better school for my son to go to pre-k.

Thank God for St. Mary's! why would I send my kids to schools that are allowed to speak about everything else other than Our faith?. For our family it has been an extraordinary blessing. Everyone is so Christ like, I do not ask for anything more. I know my kids are well under our Mother's maternal care. As for education I really can't complain my kids are doing great. I am looking forward to this coming year.

As an alumni to this school, I have been impressed with the improvements made through the years. It's well worth it. I currently have 3 children attending, and one who is now in college.

What a school! I have taught in public schools my entire career and now work at St. Mary's. There are zero discipline problems, extremely devoted parents, and unbelievable students. It is a dream come true! It is preschool(Montessori) through 6th. The students receive all the core curriculum plus religion, Spanish, orchestra, an exceptional sports program and Reading Recovery, if needed. Did I mention they also have a guidance counselor? All the teachers are certified and many have been there for years. The students are joyful, well-adjusted, loving, compassionate, respectful... I really could go on and on. Many of the students go on to be in Pre-AP in Jr. High. Many of the alumni go on to graduate in one of the top 10 spots at each high school with at least one Valedictorian and Salutatorian that I can think of. If you want more for your child, visit St. Mary's today.

A small treasure we have in this school. This school is a blessing from the Head down to the cafeteria workers. My children get the religious foundation and a top education. Compare to public school and they seem to be a semester ahead. We are thankful for the nurturing teachers and the friends we have made with the other families. An experience we will never forget.

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.
