Community is the fabric of our life at St. Mary’s. Whether in-school or remote, everyone participates in morning announcements, prayer, and the Pledge of Allegiance. We respect each other, we have fun together, and we face challenges together, all for the greater good of St. Mary’s.

Self-discipline is central to success in the classroom and in life. It develops self-control, an ability to focus, and a conviction to achieve. It enables students to make appropriate choices academically and socially, and to accomplish higher goals. St. Mary’s works to build self-discipline in each student.
I couldn't be more grateful to the St. Mary's community for creating such a warm and welcoming environment! The pandemic protocols that St. Mary's has thoughtfully put in place is truly impressive. We are SO happy we made the decision to join the St. Mary's community.
I fully expect St. Mary's to be our school till the end of 8th grade. We love it.
I want to say thank you to all of you for welcoming me into the St. Marys family with such kindness and open arms. The atmosphere of cooperation and care is wonderful and refreshing. The students are great! You all do a wonderful job with your classes. Thank you again for making me feel at home in your home.
New Faculty Member
Mr. Sanzone helped prepare me for high school because he encouraged dialogue in class instead of strictly having it be textbook-based. He combined music and films in our class and often encouraged debate-style format. He prepared me for the roundtable discussions that I love so much and I value my early exposure to it because of him.
The teacher who prepared me the most for high school would be my St. Mary’s English and Latin teacher. I still use what he taught me to this day!
