This school is very put together & very well organized. Uniforms are worn. Family is encouraged to be involved. Most teachers communicate very well through their website was it the children themselves. Very clean campus with the appreciated security measures adopted.

My children both attended Mary B Austin K-5. As with all schools there may be things that are not as you would like but overall I could not have made a better choice.

We have been here 6 years and since we have been here only a few teachers have actually left, the teachers love this school. Our PTA is great we just raised enough money this year ...  Read more

Mary B is a great school. Academically, I believe it is as good as any private school in the county (and it's free). The staff is highly qualified with most of them having a masters degree. Mrs. Zeigler is a fabulous principal and treats every child special. Her utmost concern is for the saftey of every ...  Read more
