    "This is a wonderful school that provides excellent educational opportunities for their students. STMM is outstanding in National History Day, Science, Speech Competitions as well as Writing Competitions."

    "St. Margaret Mary School is an outstanding choice for students K-8 looking for a challenging educational environment and a top-notch Catholic education. The teachers are dedicated educators. They are paid less than their public school counterparts, but spend more time and effort bettering the students. Leadership is good. The principal is hard-working and puts in many hours. She loves the students and school. The school offers MANY extra-curricular activities for students: student council, pro-life club, quiz bowl, basketball, track & field, choir, band, languages, computers, theater, cheerleading, and more! The recently built gymnasium (2011) provides a great environment for events. Religious education and sacramental prep are excellent. Some suggested improvements: more of strategic focus on directing the school rather than day-to-day operations; a greater focus on algebra is needed; the hot lunch program should be abandoned or a full-time staff hired to alleviate volunteer issues. Overall, I recommend parents of prospective students make a visit to St. Margaret Mary School and find out if it's the right place for their children. I believe most will find it a fantastic fit."

    "My husband and I are very pleased with this school. In this economy when all public schools are making cuts to education this offers a nice change. They offer many of the special classes that the public elementary schools have had to cut (Spanish, art, etc.). My only complaint with the school is that there is no playground and although the students may use the neighborhood park they often end up just playing in the parking lot. If they built an onsite play area with equipment I would be pleased to give a 5 star rating."

    "I was very dissapointed with this school. I did not pay for my child to be mistreated by the teachers."

    "There are good things for some children at this school yet there are a lot of situations that are not the greatest for every child. Parent involvement is good but there is not too much diversity. A lot of children that are of color or have a different ethnic background get excluded with the exception of if they have a parent of a different race is well off or if the parent has a good job and is known in the area. Status is a big deal here and if you dont fit that mold your child could get labeled as a troublemaker or ADHD. Not a great school yet not the worst Catholic school in the area. The children learn this behavior at home and some of the parents just want to keep their children away from children of any other race or background but they do have a high standard for class work not the friendliest place for EVERY child."
