    "St. Mary's School is definitely not worth attending. I went to school there for eleven years (pre-school through eighth grade) and I learned very little to nothing. When I went to high school freshman year I had to work twice as hard as my peers. Most of the subjects I excelled at I have always been known to perform well in such as English, algebra, chemistry, and history. St. Mary's had done nothing to ensure that their students not only mastered the basics, but also had divulged deep into their subjects learning raw material, instead we were taught biased philosophies. Not all teachers were like that however, there were a few great teachers at the school. I do personally suggest though that you should send your children to Central and/or Hauser, they have a great education system, and it will save you $4000 every year for tuition alone."

    "St. Mary is an excellent school with a strong community feel offering a Catholic faith-based education. The disciplined, yet caring environment truly teaches the "whole person." There has been some positive, and sometimes difficult, changes the past couple of years; I feel these changes will, in the long run, make this strong school even stronger. In my opinion, the "final product" (i.e. graduating 8th graders) are the best measurement of school success, and St. Mary 8th graders consistently get into their high schools of choice and go on to strong college careers."

    "My daughter came to 6th. Grade from public school. She is finishing the 7th. Grade and getting ready for the entrance exams to catholic high school. The parents from the day on were supportive, kind, helpful. I came in to this community without an idea of the process and was very pleased with the outcome. If not St. Mary I probably would not be hoping for my daughter to go to best catholic schools in Ill. Thank teachers and parents for welcoming us in to your community."

    "I pulled my children from St. Mary. I found the families not friendly and the teachers not as good as the public schools in Riverside. I have friends who had a son graduate with F's, a daughter who went to Fenwick from St. Mary's and was told the majority of St. Mary graduates are behind in math upon starting at Fenwick. My personal experience is the school works for kids who do well and puts the responsibility of a struggling student on the parent to resolve. My children are a grade ahead in what they are learning at Dist 96 compared to friends children who attend STM. Faith is taught in the home. You don't need to pay for a excellent education in Rivetside."

    "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 still have one child attending 5th grade. The teachers are very committed as are most of the parents in ensuring the long term success of the school. For most parents, it is a financial sacrifice to send their kids to SM so expectations are high - as they should be. The fact that almost all of our 8th graders are accepted into their schools of choice and excel once there - demonstrates the schools strengths. Children are taught Christian values and service to others and are expected to live it. Walk through the halls and it is obvious. I also like the diversity. St. Mary's offers foreign language, technology, art, gym, music, student council, talent show, and (no cut) sports teams all at close to half the cost spent per child in the public school system. Impressive."
