As a former student and current parent, I can attest to the quality of education I received, as well as my children. The teachers and staff are wonderful! St. Mary's offers a nurturing and respectful environment. Faith and curriculum go hand in hand here. All are welcome!

Terribly political school. The only benefit I got out of this school was from the music and arts programs, all other education was mediocre and parallel to the public school system.

St Mary School is ourstanding. The attention the kids get is incredible. The education, the specials, the music programs, everything is awesome. The unique part about the school to me is that it is an old school. You get a family feeling when you walk into the school...the fammilies are so nice.

Great School with a strong history of educational excellence. Routinely produces leaders both academically, athletically, and socially for the Janesville High Schools. 2004 Valedictorian of Craig High School was a St. mary's Graduate.

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.
