Saint Mary School opened over 50 years ago, and our tradition of excellence in Catholic education continues. The building is always being updated and remains a great facility to meet the needs of students. In the recent several years, we have updated lighting, added additional security features, and are replacing refrigerated drinking fountains with bottle fillers. Recently, we completed the addition of two new classrooms, a multi-purpose room, and a link to the church. Saint Mary parish is very supportive of the school and strives to maintain a premier school in the heart of the city. All roads easily lead to Saint Mary School.
Currently Saint Mary School has grades Pre-K through 6 with approximately 410 students enrolled. Our building is divided into 3 wings. The main level west wing hosts our Preschool through grade 2 students. They have a separate playground and drop-off/pick-up entrance. Grades 3 and 4 classrooms are located on the main level east wing with grades 5 and 6 upstairs.
In addition to classroom offerings we have vocal music, band, technology, art, library, and physical education instruction by certified teachers. Kindergarten has 30 minutes of each of those subjects. Grades 1-6 have two 30 minute classes each week in physical education and music and one 40 minute class each week in art, technology, and library.
All student needs are addressed at Saint Mary School. We augment and address student instruction with pull-out and in class enrichment/accelerated instruction or remediation/assistance based on student needs for success. Auxiliary staff, aids, and volunteers round out our certified staff as part of our dedicated educational team. In addition to formal academic enrichment, we offer group band, private band, jazz band and lessons, Orchestra (private lessons and group), after school choir, liturgical music, Spanish, Lego League, Art club, Walking club and more!
