12 Parent Reviews for St. Mary Of The Woods School

Be careful. Under this new principal, words are missed and misspelled throughout its literature at its website. Most of the faculty of 2011-2012 was retained. Know that the culture of the school has not been drastically modified.

St. Mary of the Woods provides a wonderful faith-based learning environment that challenges and develops students at all levels. I would advise anyone reading these reviews that during the 2011-2012 school year SMOW underwent a leadership change so some of the reviews from that timeframe reflect that ...  Read more

This school is great if you have an average child. SMOW cannot handle any child that needs a lot of help, or one that is very intelligent and bored. The former principal was a nun that ran a tight ship, but was slow to embrace technology. The new principal in last 4 years brought on technology which ...  Read more

We had more than a handful of issues with the school. The leadership of the school is seriously lacking. Bullying is an issue that is not handled appropriately. Teachers are hit or miss. Sports are overemphasized and academics are not. We expected more from a faith based school.

St. Mary of the Woods School (SMOW) provides a wonderful educational foundation for high school and college.

We currently have two children at St Mary's and a very pleased with their progress. Homework is given every day which takes our children about 90 minutes to finish.

School average at best. Teachers less than average, except for the new, young ones. These kids will be in for a rough ride in high school

I have a 7th grade student at this school and find it average. Very good math program, but the new vice principal is a little off the memo. Most teachers are outstanding and deserve more than they are credited with.
