    "Our children love the School of St. Mary! Our oldest has been there for over 8 years. The academics are competitive, the teachers are very dedicated and emphasize faith and respect, and the overall community is the best feature. Our children enjoy and participate in choir, debate, service hours, altar serving, football, basketball, volleyball and cheerleading. The parent volunteers who lead these groups do an amazing job. We highly recommend St. Mary. Also the school was just awarded the prestigious Blue Ribbon Award for a second time."

    "Four of my children attend(ed) the school and I have watched the quality of the school disintegrate over a number of years. It is a shame the school cannot hire or develop the kind of talent in the administration and teachers that was there a decade ago."

    "I have a number of children in the school, each with different needs. I have had a child with LD's, and he had amazing, supportive friends, coaches who really taught him and played him, and teachers who are academically challenging, personally supportive, and socailly aware. My gifted child is validated, and challenged. Most importantly, bullying behavior rarely finds fertile ground."

    "I am really surprised at the earlier reviewers comments on the football program. My experience has been a really positive and fair one. These coaches are extremely dedicated and are there to teach life values as much as they are to teach the game of football. They teach how to be a good team mate, how to be a good loser and winner, and how important it is to never give up. These boys are respected by the coaches and in turn the coaches are held in high regard by the players. It has been a wonderful experience for my son and a great addition to his time spent at St. Mary. The school, having just been awarded the blue ribbon award for academic excellence, is on par with all the best schools in the area. What sets St. Mary a part from other schools is its community of teachers and families. To be a part of this community is nothing short of a blessing. It is a place where everyone knows and looks out for each other. A place where your child will not fall through the cracks and parent involvement is always welcomed. It is a wonderful place to bring up your children. Our years at the school are coming to end and we will always have a special place in our hearts for the school."

    "We have 3 children at St. Mary's- we couldn't be happier with the excellent teachers and support staff. All 3 are growing and learning more everyday. Communication is high with the teaching staff, hands on involement with all aspects of the school. The sports programs are terrific. First class coaches, my children have had a positive experience with all activities."
