Best overall education that we could find in a 50 mile radius of Catskill. And believe me when I say that we did a lot of research prior to moving from public education to private education! We visited schools, solicited feedback from parents, and spent countless hours talking to teachers and administrators.
... Read more Again, St Mary's was the clear choice for our two boys. Religion was not a factor. We knew that we wanted to give our children a SOLID foundation in the elementary years. I mean SOLID in all senses of the word--academic, social, emotional, etc. We wanted them to develop a love of learning and sense of accountability for that learning--even as early as 5 years old. We wanted small class sizes, strong academics that could be tailored to each student, and high standards of behavior. Overall, we are very pleased. You will not find more dedicated and genuine teachers out there. The school is not fancy but it stresses the most important things--and does so very, very well. Read less
