    "I have also noticed that the substitute teacher that the school uses Is a parent with no patience for children. I have over heard her and another teacher saying that she would like to strangle some of the kids. They also need to set up some kind of a dare program because there's way too much bullying in the school. I have spoke to the principal about it, but like some other parents say he doesn't seem to care."

    "I was very upset to find out that the substitute teacher that the school uses is a parent. She has no college education. I'm not even sure if she graduated high school. I would think that with the amount of money that I spent to send my kids there that they could pay a real teacher."

    "We encourage GreatSchool visitors to visit St. Mary's School website. The website has been created to give visitors a better understanding of how our school educates children in faith, academics, life lessons, and compassion. We have been successfully doing this since 1872! Together, wonderful students, committed parents, a dedicated faculty and staff, a supportive pastor and parish leadership, and an involved community, create an educational environment where each student is valued and feels at home. At St. Mary s School, we feel privileged to be a part of your child s upbringing. Our high test scores are just one small indicator of the caliber of education offered at St. Mary s School. Through our emphasis on moral and spiritual development, your child will be supported in his/her unique journey toward living a faith-filled life. Indeed, your child will be encouraged to grasp the deeper meanings of faith whether through weekly all-school masses, in the curriculum that is taught, or by seeing the hand of God work in their lives. Life is best lived in a holistic environment where mind, body, and spirit are recognized as gifts from God. As you get to know us better, we hope that those who are not already with us will decide to join the St. Mary's School family. I would be happy to meet with you and your family and give a tour of our building. Please do not hesitate to call. I look forward to hearing from you. Mr. Tom Ruiz Principal"

    "I have noticed a few situations where some of the teachers could use some sensitivity training. Their approach to educating minorities leaves much to be desired."
