13 Parent Reviews for St. Marys Academy

This parent also pointed out the fact that SMA is affiliated with the Archdiocese, yet not bound to it. "If you want a real Catholic education, this isn't the school." This is untrue. She begs the question, what is a real Catholic education? One where the real priests--the patriarchal ones--shove their ...  Read more

Our child has been at St. Mary's for a couple of years. We believe she has received an outstanding education in an extremely supportive environment.

It was my choice to attend St Marys and I have never once regretted it. It has an absolutely wonderful and incredibly supportive environment where students from all backgrounds can thrive.

I would have to disagree with a comment about St. Marys Academy. Yes we are a Catholic School, but by being so, we believe we have an obligation to understand other cultures, and therefore gain more insight beyond what is rudimentary. Our science teachers are excellent, as well as our English department ...  Read more

St. Mary's Academy is a qaulity private Catholic all girls high school in Downtown Portland. We have found the school, teachers, and leadership to be above average or excellent. The academics are rigorous. And the endorsement from our daughter is a big thumbs up.

Not really a trueCatholic school. The four years of religion education offered by the school is an exaggeration. Psychology isn't exactly a religion class. This school is affiliated with the Church but not run by the Church. If you want a real Catholic education, this isn't the school. Also, this ...  Read more

I attended St. Mary's and loved my time there. Not only was I especially well prepared for college, but I was exposed to a variety of ideas and perspectives. For example, I took a world religion class that explored many traditions including ancient religions, native spirituality, and eastern religions. ...  Read more

i absolutely love this school. I was not excited to go at first because it was all girls. But i am so happy my parents sent me there. It challenges the students, increases their self confidence and overall has a fantastic atmosphere. I would recommend this school to anyone. Also, I am not Catholic and ...  Read more
