I enjoy the dedication and the experience of the teachers and the comprehensive approach to education. Kids are excited a/b what they are learning and want to share it with their loved ones.

I feel this school lacks compasssion and is not spiritually or biblically inclined. The leadership lacks direction and concern for cultural differences and seem to be more interested in the economic assurity of the Ed Choice program, while the teachers seem totally under motivated. Very dissapointed!

The teachers are incredible! The staff works together and devote much of their free time to benefit the school and the students' individual needs. Saint Mary School gets a big A+ for the reading programs it offers. My children and I like the diverse student body but I would like to see more physically
... Read more challenged students accepted at the school. All and all, I feel this school is top notch. My only complaint is the inconsistent discipline. I send my children to a private school for quality education (which they receive) and stronger discipline than they would get at a public school. If the administration would follow the discipline policies more closely, the school would get a 5 star rating from me. Read less

The new principal is horrible. I won t be surprised if some of the teachers leave not to mention a lot of paying parents.
