Prior to this year this school had dedicated teaching staff that cared for and made sure this school was a viable alternative to the even poorer public level schools. However, there were multiple teachers who left for higher paying positions or were hired and not qualified to remain in their assigned positions. The bottom line here is that the highly valued St. Mary's reputation no longer exists...grade scores have plunged....parents are walking away with their students and their funding! Buyer beware.....go anywhere else and protect your children from this crisis-management nightmare! Investigate thoroughly before signing a contract here and submitting your child to this hit & miss school!

Two of our children have been at St. Mary's now for 5+ years and we love it! Great Catholic culture, top notch academics, and first class state of the art facilities. Highly recommend!

I love how well behaved and polite most of the students are at St Mary's. The kids are given high expectations and they strive to get them.

St. Mary's is an excellent physical plant staffed with conscientious, talented lay teachers. They have an impressive instructional program that is 'soup to nuts', that is, comprehensive in every category from religious education & sacramental preparation to the '3R's'! Children are challenged daily, appropriate to age and subject matter. With Dr. Ricken's departure as the founding principal, they've taken a big hit but I have no doubt that St. Mary's will continue to produce the academic, civic, political and community leaders they've graduated since their founding more than a century ago.

Lack of planning is horrible, no principal involvement and teacher interaction and discipline stink. The kids are not challenged in any way. The school should be shut down. Divorce is the only reason my kids suffer there

This is a wonderful school. My chils has attened for PK4 and K and was reading after the frist month in K! It helps that there are only 12 students in her class so she gets lots of attention from her teacher. We plan to attend until 8th grade.

The school is very well run & with a new school coming in 2008 is looking to get better in the next few years. The school is active in science fair & has a 100% rate of acceptance into East High School's superb advanced placement IB program

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.
