My daughter graduated from St. Mary last year and got in to Fenwick. Without the team teacher, principle help, good parents advises we would have never reach our goal.

St.Mary is a great school. I have been there since I was in preschool and it's acted as my second home.From the start the teachers have showed me nothing but kindness and care which make this school different from a lot of others. I personally think that if you are deciding wether or not to send your ...  Read more

The principal of this school was in the process of turning this good school into a great school, and it is unfortunate she is leaving. She had an open door policy for students, teachers and parents, and was skilled at conflict resolution. She was honest and fair, and held students accountable for their ...  Read more

St. Mary's has a new principal and new pastor - both extremely positive changes. The school offers an excellent education while ensuring the development of the whole child including strong values, discipline, and skill sets needed to become a productive young adult. I've had 3 children graduate and ...  Read more

Sorry to agree with you, but my children have left this school....due to poor administration, and some teachers who left much to be desired.

The curriculum is great at this school, but I disagree with Jamie. I do not think the majority of families are friendly, and the teachers could be kinder to their students; and it is difficult as a parent, to get the teachers to see anything your way. It is a disciplined school (which has some benefits), ...  Read more
